One of the most popular facets of Moonlighting is the payments platform. This tutorial discusses how easy it is to make and receive payments. As a power user I can tell you first hand that once you make and receive a payment you’ll never look back.. It so easy to use and takes just minutes to add a credit card to pay people as well as just a few minutes to add a checking account to receive money. Even more, Moonlighting was designed to be used mobile first, Ios and Android Phones as well as the web.
Best of all it is Free to receive money. Yes I said free! Receive money with no transaction fees. Even more awesome is the fact that Boost customers receive a 1% bonus on top of payments when they get paid through Moonlighting.
On the other side of the transaction, paying customers do not have to worry about the 10-20% fees our competitors charge for similar services. Moonlighting fees for paying customers are made up of the standard credit card processing fees(2.9% + $.30) plus only 2% for using Moonlighting. For Smaller transactions, there is a $.99 minimum fee. So Simple!
Last important point. Data from Intuit shows that 55 percent of the nation’s 27 million small businesses do not accept credit cards and over 58% of customers ask for payment options other than cash when when only presented the cash option.
The benefits of accepting credit and debit cards far outweigh the cost. The various studies show that when people are given more payment options (beyond cash); they are more likely to make impulse purchases, join loyalty programs, and spend more per purchase – and that can only help your business to grow. So take advantage of the Moonlighting payments and help educate your fellow Moonlighters on the wonderful opportunities right in the palm of their hand!
