Is it surprising? It may be to some, but not to me. I walked into the local pizza place the other day to pick up our pies, and the team behind the counter had 6 different tablets and screens in front of them. When I asked why so many, the manager told me, “Well, this is our POS, this is for GrubHub, this one is for Favor, this one is for….” She named off a few delivery models I had never even heard of before.

This has little to do with a platform, and more to do with a positive company history that a creditor (providing merchant services) would trust. So, you need: To make…

Many changes of the mind are many man hours down the drain. If you and the customer agreed on a set price, then you will lose money most of the time.
