With almost any daily deal site that a merchant runs a deal through the deal site collects the money made from the sales of the deal and holds on to it. A percentage is taken out of the money made from the sale of the deal and then the merchant has to way for the deal site to pay them their portion. ADit Deals offers a direct linking from the ‘Buy Now’ button on a deal to a business owner’s merchant account through PayPal or Authorize.net, the payment page on their website, or an in store voucher.
This new way of running deals is shaking up the very foundation of how daily deals are run by companies like Groupon and Living Social. From linking their preferred ‘Ways to Get Paid’ the merchant decides how they would like to receive the payment for their deal. ADit Deals does not hold on to the payments from consumers so the merchants can receive their money right away. They also do not take a percentage of the sales from the deals, allowing merchants the opportunity to run bigger deals, and to receive the full amount from each sale right away. Instead ADit Deals only charges a flat fee of $100 to run a daily deal and the merchant keeps everything made from the sale of the deal.
Merchants can also set up their ADit Deals from their iPhone for added convenience. Simply search for and download the ‘ADit Merchant’ App in the iPhone App Store. From the App, consumers can find the deals that merchants put up that are near them and either buy the deal from their iPhone or redeem the deal from the phone (depending on the redemption restrictions of the deal).
Merchants can run an ADit Deal and take control over their daily deals. They can also receive the payments for the deal directly from the consumers right away. Run an ADit Deal, Pay a Flat fee, and Keep all of the money made from sales.
