The national trend of merchants passing on their credit card fees continues to accelerate, aided last week by a federal court striking down Texas’s “no-surcharge” law as unconstitutional.
The Texas ruling follows the defeat of no-surcharge laws in Florida and California, but it is a unique milestone: Texas is the first state in which a surcharge ban that was previously upheld has now been struck down under last year’s Supreme Court precedent in Expressions Hair Design.
Now businesses in all states can benefit from including the merchant service fees on transactions. What can you do with an additional four or five percent on your bottom line?
NM-POS can set up all of our products to collect electronic funding fees automatically. Unfortunately First Data Corp.’s Clover Unit removed this ability from their App putting their merchants in the hole regarding this ruling.
A recent analysis by industry experts confirms, “When cardholders bear the cost of their own rewards, they are motivated to choose a lower-cost option.”
VIVA la Merchants and Free Speech!

Rules that enforce performance which directly affect their customer’s dining experience and regulations that control behavior within the service team to produce a cohesive, productive and beneficial workforce for everyone in the restaurant.

One of the most common problems and an area of revenue losses in any restaurant is when staff does not ring beverages into the POS system. It’s an easy thing to forget, especially with a full house, a busy server, and in some instances, with a cashier taking payment. Soft beverages from syrup concentrate can be thought of as a low cost perishable but when ignored, can be a high cost lost of revenue over time. Every restaurateur should have a feature embedded into their business’ POS system to ask, or even better, require a beverage before the check can be tendered.
While the food service industry does not maintain statistics on error or theft, the issue is very real for any restaurant owner. A 2004 Nation Restaurant Association survey stated theft represented on average 4% of a restaurant’s total food costs. And in comparison, a 2010 survey by the University of Florida reported over $36 billion (dollars) are lost due to theft and error. With these alarming numbers, it’s apparent that restaurateurs are battling to keep their assets protected and are in need of tools to control and track to their benefit.
Luckily, Focus POS has an unique stock feature; forcing staff to ring in a beverage for every entree rung in, even if it’s a zero cost item such as water. When programming, New Mexico POS will flag any major entree or dish that the owner thinks would require a beverage to match. Such as, an appetizer would not require a beverage but the major entrees behind it would. This feature can also be matched with any alcoholic beverage that requires a mixer. For example, staff would pick their cocktail, vodka, and then the mixer, ensuring the up-charge is always added.
This feature included with the other great features in Focus POS, New Mexico POS will program a custom database, tailored to fit your business.

In the world of Point of Sale, products are often misrepresented and the end user experiences difficulties in everyday operation. Defined by whether the purchaser is buying for a business or for individual use; many variables in quality, durability, and performance is effected. Although some companies present their products as a cheap alternative to a fully loaded Point of Sale system, in time the initial investment will deteriorate rapidly; causing grief, aggravation, and high maintenance expense compared to a system engineered to have a full life span, commercial grade software and hardware, and retail hardened durability.
A mid-range tablet with an enticing price tag may be perfectly suitable for home and personal use but will probably fail eventually if not immediately as a Point of Sale terminal replacement or restaurant line buster. Because of the constant demand of resources, the tablet’s enticing price comes with the set back of low-tier consumer grade hardware and/or software. While being compared to a tablet designed for a commercial setting, you will see a higher price tag but for a very good reason. A commercial grade tablet will have upgrades, not found in a consumer based world, specifically built for keeping up and not letting down a busy store.
Another con of buying consumer grade products in an commercial environment is the risk of the product being damaged or broken. Though manufactures have made progress towards having devices not break, bend, or shatter, this does not apply in a commercial setting. A small purchase towards a consumer grade product may end up being a much larger investment due to the product being bought several times over. Once again, a commercial grade product has been designed specifically to not be damaged when used by an entire staff. Most products come with features such as anti-shock mounted hard drives, protective cases or bezels to withstand even the most extreme conditions, and commercial grade hardware to keep up with even the most demanding stores.
When purchasing a device for your business, one of the most important aspects to remember is the hardware. Consumer grade computers for example may look tiny compared to a computer engineered for a business. This is mostly because of the individual parts that are different between the two devices. If we look at a processor for example, the processor found in a Wal-Mart bought computer will never be enough to power several point of sale work stations in a restaurant compared to a specific designed processor to serve as a central hub in a business.
If there are any questions or concerns whether you’re making a good purchase for your business, contact New Mexico POS! We will be more than happy to help you engineer a system with a long and high performance life span for your business!
