I work in construction and own my own business. We are family owned and over the past nearly 20 years my father has built it himself. It's labor intensive and as he's grown at times he's been forced to accept credit card payments and ACH payments.
Sometimes he has swallowed the pill and lost 3% or more of credit card fees. These are massive losses for transacting and I know some places in the world have far larger fees. A lot of the clients we work for aren't up to speed on what Bitcoin is outside of what they have heard on the news or some are just closed off.
There have been a few instances where people have owned bitcoin but are not willing to part ways with it. I've offered 3% incentives as discounts and up to 5% but have not closed any bitcoin deals. I understand this isn't like exchanging a piece of bubble gum for $1 as these invoices can be a lot larger in work.
Do any of you operate businesses who have come across ideas to incentivize the use of bitcoin? I don't mind losing a small percentage of my labor for bitcoin as I don't see owning something like that as a 3% loss or even if it was slightly more. I value each and every sat that I gain. I would love to hear if any of you have suggestions or how you have worked for bitcoin.
