Atlanta-based Sionic Mobile reports its proprietary, mobile-to-mobile, three-digit checkout process is gaining traction among small business owners.
Requiring no new hardware or upfront investment, ION Loyalty provides small business owners with mobile checkouts that are faster, easier and safer than cash or plastic – a preferred alternative to Square, PayPal Here and others – along with instant customer rewards.
Ricky Hobbs, owner and master stylist at Cut Atlanta, cited ION Loyalty as a vital component to his expansion. “We recently acquired a larger salon, adding eight new stylists to accommodate our growing clientele. Previously, we used Square and were paying higher credit card fees. It also took much longer to complete a client checkout. With ION Loyalty, we pay a flat 1% payment fee and reward our clients 1% in IONs at checkout. Even combining the payment fees and customer rewards, we are paying less with the ION program than we were with Square. It is saving us time and money. Our clients love the super-fast, three-digit code checkouts and they love getting IONs even more.”
Sionic Mobile operates the nation’s premiere merchant marketplace representing more than 100,000 retail and restaurant locations nationwide. ION Rewards users earn IONs – on top of credit card points – that spend like cash every time they checkout. It is the only universal rewards program allowing consumers to earn and spend rewards with zero restrictions at any merchant in the ION marketplace.
In addition to low-cost payments and instant customer rewards, small business owners gain unlimited mobile advertising and a self-branded eGift Card program as an ION Loyalty merchant.
The Company’s universal rewards, called IONs, help merchants keep good customers coming back more often and are awarded in addition to customers’ credit card points. Consumers may spend IONs (1,000 IONs = $1.00) at any merchant in the ION Marketplace on anything at any time.
