No Signature Required - Card Brands Look to Improve Checkout Times

Posted by Joe Musitano on Jan 17, 2018 1:23:38 PM

This fall we saw some major announcements regarding changes in the way future POS credit card transactions were going to be processed.  In October, MasterCard announced it would no longer require signatures at point-of-sale transactions in the U.S. and Canada beginning in April 2018.  Shortly thereafter, Discover announced similar intentions, requiring no POS signatures, expanding this initiative to not only the U.S. and Canada, but also Mexico and the Caribbean.  Not to be left behind, AmEx announced in early December it would also implement this change in April 2018 on a global scale.  At this time, VISA is the lone holdout, still requiring signatures at point-of-sale. Odds are the antiquated signature requirement will be dropped by Visa soon considering that it is difficult to prove that the signature was indeed the cardholder’s.

Posted by Joe Musitano on Jun 8, 2017 10:26:04 AM

The formula for improving cash flow is simple: collect account receivables as fast as possible, and slow down your accounts payable without jeopardizing your relationship with suppliers and partners. Knowing that most businesses, and even individual consumers, operate with the same ideology in mind means the challenge to get paid faster may seem insurmountable.

But is this reason enough for merchants to abandon financing?  Absolutely not.  It is, however, reason for merchants to look at more modern financing options that appeal not only to the millennial buying power, but to the masses.
