Lloyds and Merchant Rentals launch merchant giving scheme

Posted in: News, by kayleighb2a, on 2nd July 2014 | Comments Off on Lloyds and Merchant Rentals launch merchant giving scheme

We’re thrilled that Lloyds and Merchant Rentals have decided to support Bridge2Aid via a new initiative that your practice can be a part of. The new Merchant Giving Scheme will offer dental practices the opportunity to save money whilst raising vital funds for our dental training programmes.

How does it work?  

Merchant Rental’s Cardnet service will provide a card processing handset for your practice through Lloyds, which will see 1p donated straight to Bridge2Aid per patient transaction. 

How does this benefit my practice?

Low cost handset rental – The rate set for this deal is incredibly low. Prices start at £11.99 for a basic countertop machine.

Card services MOT –  Allow Merchant Rentals to look at your practice and suggest the best machine for you. This may be wireless, contactless, or just a simple counter-top.

3 months free – When you sign-up, they will give you the first 3 months for free. Most contracts are for 3 months, so if you have to end a contract with another provider – you won’t have to pay twice.

Easy set-up – All you have to do is say that you want to get involved, and we will do the rest.

Great PR – It is an easy way to tell your patients that you are a bit different and that you support Bridge2Aid’s work. Our logo will be on the back of the till rolls and there will be some simple point-of-sale material – explaining that you are donating for every transaction. Your patients don’t need to do anything. If the scheme goes national, there may be other materials – such as information for your patients, a window sticker etc.

An easy donation to Bridge2Aid – This is a really easy way to donate regularly to our work, and make a massive difference to our sustainable training in east Africa. Once you sign up, Lloyds will then transfer the money over to us monthly without you having to get involved.

How will this benefit Bridge2Aid?

Ongoing income stream – Although 1p per transaction doesn’t sound a lot, if we multiply that by the number of patients per day, and the number of practices we could attract – the amount soon adds up. The £50 per practice sign-up is also a great benefit. As this is a monthly donation, through Lloyds, it gives us a lot more stability to plan into the future

Raising our profile – At the moment we are well known within the dental profession, but for us to grow in the way we plan, we will need to reach out further – to your patients, for example.

This scheme has the potential to make a huge impact on our work and the number of Health Workers we can train, and people in pain we can reach. So please, if you would like to get involved in the scheme, or if you’d like more details, please contact Shaenna via email: shaenna@bridge2aid.org or by phone: 0845 8509877.
