Accepting Dagcoin payments at your shop, café, gym, bar, salon or market stall has never been easier. Because now all you have to do is download the free Dagpay Point of Sale App and you are good to go!

Are you looking to add Dagcoin to existing cash and card payment options? Maybe you are looking for a safer alternative to cash? Maybe you are even thinking about occasions or situations when card payments are not possible. For example, when there is no electricity, cabled internet, or when bank systems are down (this happens more often than you can imagine), etc. The free Dagpay Point of Sale App offers a solution to all these scenarios and many more.

In this week’s post, we will talk you through how the app works and more about the benefits using it will bring to your business.

How it Works

Very simply all you have to do is:

  1. Enter the amount the customer needs to pay
  2. The app creates a unique QR code
  3. The customer scans this code with their DagWallet or webwallet
  4. The payment is received

It really is as easy as that. And that isn’t all. From start to finish all this takes just 30 seconds. Just as fast and as easy as a credit or debit card payment!

You might be asking what if the customer needs a receipt? A copy of their receipt can be sent directly to their email address. Not only can customers receive a receipt regarding their purchase. A detailed overview of all transactions is made available to you, the business owner.

Because you can review your sales using the app you are not just able to see how many people are using Dagcoin as a payment option and how many sales you are making. Because you have this information you can compare this to previous weeks, months or even years to review if sales with Dagcoin are up compared to other payment methods and if overall sales for the business are also up. Likewise, you will be able to see if sales are down and adjust accordingly. The more information you have at your fingertips the better you know your business and the better you are able to help it grow.

The only thing you need to do before using the app is to set up a Dagpay account and download the DagWallet or log in to your webwallet account, that is unless you already have one!

Creating a Dagpay account will not only enable you to start accepting Dagcoin payments using the app but open you up to a world of other free Dagpay services that will help you to take your business to the next level.

Why Use the App

Right now, around 300 000 people around the world own and are using dagcoins, and that number is growing every day. That is a lot of potential new customers. And the biggest benefit of all is that they can find you using the Merchant Finder tool. Every business that joins Dagpay has the possibility to sign up to the Merchant Finder tool. By signing up to this and entering your business details, these 300 000 people have the chance to see your business.

People have the option to search for businesses in their local area and/or by the type of business. This means that in your local area there may be hundreds or even thousands of people who are looking and wanting to spend their dagcoins at your shop, restaurant, gym, bar, salon or market stall. And it doesn’t stop there, other businesses who accept dags are able to find you too. Are you looking for a new supplier or distributor? You might find them there because businesses can also search and contact each other too.

Do you also have a webshop or are you thinking of starting one? If you use Woocommerce or Magenta, simply download and enable the free web plugin and you can begin accepting Dagcoin payments right away, no need for an expensive web developer or custom made payment system. By accepting Dagcoin payments online you open your business up to the entire Dagcoin community of over 250,000 people, not just those in your local area. If you are looking to expand your business nationally or even internationally, accepting Dagcoin payments online could really help you to achieve that goal.

From freelancers to big international businesses there is a need to send and pay invoices. This is why Dagpay also offers you the ability to create invoices in seconds. All you have to do is enter your invoice data and the amount you wish to bill your customer or distributor and an invoice with a unique QR code will be created. Just like how a customer might pay you in your store, all they have to do is scan the code and make the payment. No need to worry about when a bank transfer might be received, especially an international one that might take many days. The payment can be received in seconds.

And last but not least, there is also a full point of sale system (POS) that you can integrate with your current computer or payment systems if you wish. These services are just the beginning of a whole host that are currently being made with your business and its growth in mind. Stay tuned for more…
