Description of the payment product through payment terminals 


By signing an agreement on payment card acceptance with Raiffeisenbank, you join a worldwide network of card associations. Whether you are a new or an established company, you can immediately enjoy benefits related to payment card acceptance.

Increased sales

Customers who pay by card spend more than those who pay in cash. Moreover, they choose more expensive goods and buy things they originally did not plan to buy.

Customer satisfaction

Customers are more satisfied because they can pay the way they prefer. ATM withdrawals and cash payments are more expensive and time consuming. If you allow your customers to pay by card, they will prefer your business and will be more likely to return.

Security

A lower share of cash payments reduces cash-related risks (theft, counterfeit money).


Currency conversion

The Multicurrency service lets you clear all payments in the currency you normally use in your business. You do not pay any conversion fees. Moreover, card payments are more advantageous for foreigners than cash.
