NYC-based ShopKeep, the cloud-based technology and business management solution used by more than 20,000 independent merchants, today announced its collaboration with MasterCard and the MasterCard Easy Savings® program.
Small businesses participating in the program will now be eligible to receive a 20 percent rebate on all POS hardware purchases from ShopKeep.com, including printers, cash drawers and other equipment.
In addition, MasterCard Easy Savings members who sign-up for ShopKeep will receive a free Apple PayM and EMV compatible card reader. This offer is a part of ShopKeep’s ongoing efforts to help more small businesses upgrade their payment processing equipment to EMV / chip card before the October 1, 2015 liability shift, the date when the entity – be it issuing bank or merchant – with the least secure equipment will be held responsible for any resulting fraud.
MasterCard Easy Saving is an automatic rebate program that enables participating merchants to provide savings to eligible MasterCard small business members.
