Some entrepreneurs and trade objects in the regions today are increasingly installing terminals with the possibility of issuing cash. This means that customers can withdraw cash directly at a store, cafe or other service point. This service is in demand where there are no bank branches or ATMs nearby. But why does a business need it? We understand.
The possibility of issuing cash from a card at trade and service organizations appeared several years ago. Since the launch, the service has become widespread, especially in the regional settlements of Belarus. Moreover, the benefits were felt both by customers – visitors to the stores, and by the business owners themselves.
About 2,000 organizations have evaluated and actively use the bank acquiring service with cash withdrawal from Belagroprombank. Most of these outlets are located outside the city. The service is popular with buyers all year round, but especially during the summer season.
For business, the installation of such a terminal is beneficial due to the appearance of an additional service. It increases customer loyalty, has a positive effect on business turnover and, as a result, contributes to the development of the shopping facility as a whole.
The entrepreneurs themselves who connected the service told us about the advantages of Belagroprombank acquiring with the possibility of cash withdrawal.
For example, the director of two grocery stores in the Grodno region at the beginning of 2022 connected the bank acquiring service with cash withdrawal from Belagroprombank. According to him, cash is withdrawn at the cash desks of his stores not only during the periods of salary and pension transfers, but also on ordinary days. The entrepreneur believes that this is a very important social service for the population. But it also benefits the development of his business.
– Customers who know about the cash withdrawal service in my stores actively use it. We gave out money already in the first month after connecting the service. Within a few months, the number of clients increased noticeably. Then I felt the benefit: due to the influx of customers who want to withdraw money, the volume of purchases made by them also increased. In addition, the cost of cash collection has been reduced. It’s nice that the bank charges a very small fee for the provision of the service.
Another client of Belagroprombank, an entrepreneur from the Minsk region, who connected the cash withdrawal service through terminals in his stores, said:
– This is the benefit for my business: the frequency of collections is reduced, the delivery of proceeds to the bank is simplified. More people certainly come to such stores where cash desks with the ability to withdraw money from a card are installed. They not only withdraw cash, but also buy goods. Therefore, it is beneficial to everyone – both customers, and the store, and the bank. By the way, the terminals in our stores also read mobile applications, so customers can receive banknotes simply if they have a smartphone.
