Point-Of-Sale (POS) for Product Programs
Thanks to our
partnership, Cheddar Up is reducing point-of-sale transaction fees
for our council. Starting in February, when troops use Cheddar Up’s
new bbpos card reader (available for purchase in January) and mobile
app, point-of-sale processing fees are only 2.6% + .10 cents. If
troops use Cheddar Up’s magstripe reader, manual entry or scan card
options, fees are only 2.6% + $0.30. Learn more about Using Cheddar Up for Product Programs.
Offline Cash or Check Payments:
FREE! For a no cost option, you can accept and track
cash/check payments paid to you offline (in person). You would then
deposit the cash/check in your troop or service unit bank account
and then log the payment as received in Cheddar Up! Make sure to
toggle this option "on" in your Cheddar Up account
settings so you can log and track these types of payments.
NOTE: GSNorCal receives no financial or other compensation or
benefits for offering Cheddar Up. GSNorCal is working with Cheddar Up
to offer this service to make collecting payments easier for both
leaders and parents. By developing this relationship, we have been
able to offer premium functions on the Cheddar Up platform free of
cost to troops and service units and also to build custom templates
and collection assets that will make Cheddar Up even easier for our
leaders to use. Activation of your account and use of Cheddar Up is
entirely optional for troops and leaders.
