Do you want to take card payments at a rate of 1.49% for as long as your business is trading? Now you can! Our brand new referral program makes it super simple for you to invite others who may benefit from SmartTrade App. You will be rewarded 30 days with a 1.49% card rate for every person you sign up. That’s right, they don’t have to subscribe, as long as they are a legitimate business and create an account. If we notice anyone misusing our referral program, we will shut down their account immediately and invoke a lifetime ban from taking payments with SmartTrade App. The best part is, the person you invite will also receive an introductory rate of 1.49% for their first 30 days with SmartTrade App. Here’s how it works:
You can invite friends from your Online Dashboard and directly from your Mobile Application.
When inviting friends from your dashboard you will be able to invite them directly via:
You can also simply click the “Copy Link” button and paste it into any other form of communication you would like to invite other businesses through. Now when you log in to your dashboard, you will see a new tab appearing called “Earn a Reward:”
After clicking this, you will be guided to the referral page. At the top of the page you will see a small description of the program, followed by an overview of how many successful invitations you’ve sent. This means, how many people of the ones you’ve invited have actually signed up. Further you will see the amount of days you’ve been awarded for the signups:
Below this you will have all your invite options ready for you. You can invite businesses via entering their email and sending it directly from this page, or you can invite using the buttons below. At the bottom you will have your invite history. However, just bear in mind, this will only show invitations which have actually been accepted. If you have sent an invitation and they did not sign up, you will not see them here.
For every business you sign up, you will have another 30 days of discounted card payments. Sign up 12 businesses and you’re taking dirt cheap card payments for an entire year!
When inviting from your mobile you will have a lot more ways to invite someone as its built in to your phone’s capabilities. All you have to do is click your menu and you will see a new option called “Refer & Earn a Reward:”
When clicking you will arrive at the mobile invite page, where you will be able to invite anyone using any means your phone has available. Simply click the button “Invite Someone” and select how you would like to invite them. Just click send and we’ve taken care of the rest!
If you are subscribed to our Sole Trader plan our new program you’ll save about £6.60 per £1000 you accept in transactions from you customers . That means you only have to do £1500/month and you will have paid for the entire month’s subscription through your savings on payments.
We’ve wanted to implement a referral program at SmartTrade for a long time, but nailing the process has taken some time as some of you will recognise. However, we have finally got it sorted, it’s live and it’s there to benefit you, our loyal merchants. If you have any questions about how to use the program, please click here to send us an email and we’ll be more than happy to assist you.
If you haven’t signed up yet, do so now so you can start inviting other businesses and accept customer card payments at the lowest rate in the market, by miles!
