It’s getting harder and harder for companies to justify not accepting credit cards — especially when organizations like this do.
The Girl Scouts of NE Ohio are officially accepting plastic for the purchase of their infamous cookies.
Here’s how they’re working this: The pink-sized vendors can swipe a customer’s credit card via a card reader plugged into a smartphone.
That’s not all, the world’s preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls is picking up the costly transaction fees that go along with accepting credit card payments.
But the Girl Scounts are hoping increased sales from the convenience of the new payment option will even everything out for a while.
Ohio residents be forewarned: “I would, but I don’t have any cash on me” is no longer a valid excuse when it comes to turning down Girl Scout cookies.
