Become A Petra Merchant

how this will save your money

The point of sale system, or POS, has become integral with the day to day operations of any business, and because of that, the POS has become so important you can not operate your business without it. Now we would like to show our alternative to the POS called PETRA VSA. This new concept we like to call a VSA (Value Sales Assistant). How the PETRA system works is we can present advertisements and try to upsell on customers purchases during their checkout process. This upsell will offset the cost of your processing their card payments.

CUSTOMER LOYALTY & RETENTION

We have the ability to offer discounts to your customers and to encourage return visits for reward.

Why are merchants required to pay a “licensing fee”?
Merchants pay licensing fees for the software to run their entire Freedom Choice platform. This software allows a merchant access to many “cash” payment systems, (such as Salesforce) at deeply discounted cash prices. In addition, this fee actually allows us to support and service our merchants equipment needs.
Am I required to use the PETRA system in order to be a merchant member of the cooperative?
Yes. It is required that you have PETRA in order to be a merchant member.
Do I have to purchase or lease the equipment from you?
No, you can actually buy the required equipment on your own. However, there is an upfront fee that will cover licensing, set up, reporting, and service fees. These are mandatory fees that we are responsible for.

How does a cashier know the transaction was successful?

After the customer makes the payment for the product, the cashier can check the status by clicking the check status button on his cashier app. If the transaction is successful, the cashiers get a transaction complete pop up message.

Can the cashier accept a token payment for under $1?

No, the cashier should not accept the payment if the total amount is less than $1. The customer has to pay by cash or card.
