Why you should not lease a credit card terminal….

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

Businesses often look at leasing as a viable alternative to purchasing high priced equipment. After all, not many small businesses can foot the bill for a $15,000 color copier. But would you lease a $200 cell phone or a $300 cash register? Of course not! So why do some businesses lease $150-$300 credit card terminals?

Most credit card terminal leases involve a 48 month term, and at least $20 a month. That totals $960 in payments! You could have received this terminal with only a small deposit using our free terminal program!

The Games Lease Providers Play:

Most merchants are given inflated costs to make them more inclined to lease. For instance, some companies will say a terminal, which costs $299, costs $600. With no frame of reference, many new customers will simply assume this is accurate, but may not have the cash or credit for that amount.

Also, some companies claim tax advantages to leasing. This is simply false. It is true that lease payments are deductible, but any business purchase is deductible. Would you rather deduct an expense or have the cash in your pocket?

That’s not the only bad news. Here are a few more facts about leasing credit card terminals…

Credit Card Machine Leasing Contracts are Binding.
Regardless of your circumstances, you cannot terminate the lease before the term ends.
You Have to Return the Equipment.
After you spend your $960, you then have to return the terminal
Leasing Has Costly Strings Attached
Terminal leasing companies sometimes continue to charge monthly fees beyond the contract term unless you contact them to cancel.
Equipment insurance is required for all leases, adding to monthly fees.
