ALPHARETTA, Ga., June 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Paynet Systems, a credit card solutions company, has announced a new feature through its Credit Card Machine app. The Social User Referral Encouragement (SURE) tool gives merchants who accept credit cards the ability to request referrals and reviews from their customers at the point of sale. These referrals are then posted to the customer's Facebook wall.
At the conclusion of a transaction, merchants using the Paynet Systems Credit Card Machine app for business credit card processing are asked if they would like to request a referral from that customer. If they respond yes, a Facebook referral request is sent to the customer via email. Merchants can set up a personalized default message in advance for customers to read and post to their Facebook walls. The idea is to note the customer's satisfaction and to give the company's name and contact information for others to use if they need those services. Customers have the ability to edit the message and add their own wording if they wish before posting.
"The positive relationship that merchants have with their customers is always a strong foundation for a business referral to friends, family and acquaintances," said Jack Chevalier, president of Paynet Systems, Inc. "The best time to ask for a referral is at the point of sale, since a payment signifies the completion of a successful transaction."
The SURE tool link is activated when a customer accepts a merchant's request for referral via email. The Credit Card Machine app is available on Smartphone application websites and has surpassed 200,000 downloads.
