There are so many wonderful ways business owners are using technology every day for their digital marketing, as well as point-of-sale (POS) and bookkeeping.

Cafes, Restaurants and Bars are Cash-Based Businesses

One of the great aspects about running any food business like a cafe, restaurant or bar is that the business owner rarely needs to worry about accounts receivable headaches! They get paid immediately and most of their accounting is cash-based accounting.

If you run a business where accounts receivable is an issue get our FREE Xero Accounts Receivable training manual.

I loved witnessing this process because it highlighted how small business owners need to work towards a budget and use whatever technology they can to get the desired results. Watch the video of a customer paying for a meal using Square, mobile phone and contactless reader card on YouTube.

PayPal Will Lend You Money Based on Your Sales!

Besides how to save money on merchant fees, business owners often take note of advantageous cashflow lending opportunities. PayPal offers businesses cashflow lending based on your sales which we’ve covered in more detail in a previous post.
