If you stop by the Rae Town fishing village but find yourself low on cash, don’t rush to leave just yet – Namdi Thompson can facilitate debit and credit card purchases.
“I have checked around in a number of parishes and I have never seen another fish vendor using this system,” Namdi Said.
Namdi said the POS machine offers customers better access to his products and a greater level of security as it minimises the chance of them being robbed.
“This sort of system is just part of our efforts to bring a higher level of professionalism to business. There have been many times when tourists travelling from the airport stop to ask if we accept credit or debit cards, and then we realised that we had to put the system in place to meet their request,” Thompson said, sharing that he also owns two small fishing boats.
