RMT and massage therapy payment processing and merchant accounts

RMTs and message therapists have unique challenges when they want to accept credit cards and debit cards. The primary concern we hear is generally the ability to have a simple and flexible way to accept payments. Therapists may work in a studio or be at a client location, so payments need to accepted wherever they are. The second key concern is price. That is why we have created the most inexpensive payment solution for massage therapists that process over $50,000 per year.

The payment terminals for massage therapists

  • Payment terminal at your studio. This is where At a customer comes to you and you accept payments with either a mobile app, a terminal, or a virtual terminal.
  • At a customer's location. If you're mobile and go to customers' location, you can either user a mobile app or a wireless terminal.
  • Some therapists have solutions for repeat customers or subscription services. In this case, they use a email invoicing that sends an email with a "Pay Now" button

Ways massage therapists can grow your revenue and profit with the right payment processing solution

  • Start accepting credit cards. Customers generally like to pay with credit card for the main reason of collecting credit card points. RMTs and massage therapists have noticed around 20% increase in revenue primarily due to returning clients when they start accepting credit cards.
  • Make sure your merchant account accepts all types of credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, China Union Pay, Diners, JCB, Discover and AMEX.
  • If you want to increase your profit, make sure you can also accept debit cards. The cost to accept credit cards is around 2% and $0.08 per transaction. The cost to accept debit cards is only $0.08 per transaction.
  • If you have many repeat customers, offer the service to send an email invoice, so they can pay online by clicking a "Pay Now" button. This flexibility helps retain customers.
