This case study features one of our local customers Koru Gym and how the introduction of card payments pumped up sales.
Koru Gym is located in Bishops Stortford and is a strength and conditioning gym. Previously, Koru members could only pay for their membership fees with cash. The club shop also operated a cash only policy.
However, Koru Gym received a growing number of requests from members wishing to make payments by card. They could also see great growth potential in the shop, by offering greater payment options to customers.
Koru Gym got in touch with Chip & PIN Solutions after they had received a number of recommendations about our service and the fantastic support we provide to other local businesses.
“Setting up card payment services through Chip & PIN Solutions was a straight forward and easy process. Accepting card payments has really benefited our business and we would highly recommend their services.” (Koru Gym)
When we asked Koru Gym, how the introduction of card payments had impacted their business. They found the impact overwhelming and had witnessed a positive impact in two main areas.
Firstly they have seen substantial growth in their club shop, as members are able to make impulse and larger purchases. The second area was greater efficiency in membership collection, in terms of speed and convenience.
“By increasing the number of ways people can pay it has offered more convenience to our members and as a result led to more sales”. (Koru Gym)
It’s great to see how card payments have helped Koru gym improve their business in terms of sales and operation efficiency.
