How to grow your business with a Flash machine
Take your business to the next level
Your business is your baby, we get it, and we all want the best for what you’ve raised from the ground up.
A Flash machine is your next step to realising your full potential: 1 machine that gives you a huge new range of products to sell your customers.
That’s far from the end of it, though, so let’s break it down.
These are what bring the customers in. They’re the star of the show, next to you of course, and everything is available on your Flash machine.
With a Flash machine, you can:
- Sell airtime & data
- Sell electricity
- Sell 1ForYou vouchers
- Accept DStv payments
- Sell & RICA SIM cards
- Accept bill payments
- Do money transfers
- Sell entertainment vouchers
- Sell gaming vouchers
- Send airtime & data overseas
- Sell Lotto and Powerball tickets
- Do cashless supplier payments
The offering is always growing and always helping you become a one-stop-shop for your customers.
Earn more, pay less
A Flash machine is a once-off cost. You pay no rental fees or joining fees to become a Flash Trader.
Having a bigger offering also means that more people will come to your shop, which results in a bigger average basket size per customers. This means that people may come in to buy airtime, then see that you offer 1ForYou, they’ll buy that too, and then also buy a coke and toilet paper.
It all adds up, and guess who wins in the end? You do.
When you buy a Flash machine, you also get free signs and posters to put up inside and outside your shop these are all available at a Flash Kiosk.
We will even paint your shop if you want us to, making you stand out and look brand new.**
With Flash signage, your customers will be able to know what you sell inside and make it easy for them to see it from far away. That’s a win-win.
Support 7 days a week
Sometimes a helping hand is the best way to move forward and grow your business.
With Flash, you get access to a call centre that speaks 5 different languages and is open 7 days a week, always there to answer your questions about the machine, your products, or anything else to do with Flash.
We also have a huge team of people on the ground who can visit your store in person to help. This is our Field team, and if you’re a Flash Trader, you will have a dedicated Area Growth Manager who looks after shops in your area.
The Flash Trader community
When you buy a Flash machine, you become a Flash Trader. That doesn’t mean your job has changed, it just means that you’ve joined over 195 000 other people in Mzansi who use Flash to improve their business.
That’s a big family that’s still growing every single day.
