How JMG Handyman got rid of card readers and started saving 28% on their payment fees

How ScanPay helped JMG Handyman get rid of card readers and save 28 percent on their payment fees

Executive Summary

JMG Handyman, a Houston-based handyman services company, wanted a solution to the flimsy credit card readers that constantly got misplaced. They didn’t think they would end up saving money too.

Today, with ScanPay’s instant payouts and cashback debit cards, they are re-imagining how far their money goes.


For Jesus Garcia, owner of JMG Handyman services in Houston, taking digital payments had always been a clunky process involving flimsy card readers that are easily misplaced. That meant having to come back with the card reader or ask for cash and then wait around while the customer scrounged for cash at home. All this meant that his technicians were losing time and his company was looking unprofessional.

The COVID-19 pandemic also meant that people were increasingly opting for digital payments and that’s when Jesus started looking for a truly touch-less payment method and found ScanPay.

“Misplacing those fragile card readers was always a huge blocker in accepting payments.” - Jesus Garcia, Owner - JMG Handyman

No Card Readers and lower fees?

Jesus heard about ScanPay from a friend and instantly loved the idea - his phone could be his payment terminal. He signed up and tested out a few transactions and loved how easy it was to create an invoice and text the payment link to the customers.

“[ScanPay] has saved me in gas and in time from having to travel to run a credit card or pick up a check.” - Jesus Garcia, Owner - JMG Handyman

But the best part was when looked at the fees and compared them to everything else he had tried. ScanPay’s flat 2.5% payment fees added up to big savings - almost 28% discount on previous payment fees or 1% of revenue.

“[With ScanPay] We started saving more than 1% from Day 1” - Jesus Garcia, Owner - JMG Handyman

Just the beginning

For Jesus, easier payments were just the beginning of how ScanPay would help JMG Handyman. Today, with instant payouts, he no longer has to worry about not having enough cash to buy supplies for his jobs.

“Instant Payouts have completely changed the way I work. I can now buy work supplies right away!” - Jesus Garcia, Owner - JMG Handyman
