Clean printers make happy merchants

Product: Thermal printer SNAP swabs
Company: POS Supply Solutions

Most POS terminals in use today contain a thermal printer, and transaction after transaction, receipt after receipt, a printer's heads need to be cleaned every so often. Dirt, dust, ink, paper particles and other nasty bits can get lodged inside, resulting in streaks, smears and printing errors.

This is where you, a merchant level salesperson, come in. Literally. What better way to get your foot in the door than offering to clean a merchant's POS printer?

POS Supply Solutions, formerly US Paper Supply (the company recently changed its name to better reflect its product line), offers thermal printer SNAP swabs to get the job done. Here's how they work: A cleaning solution is right inside the swab. Simply squeeze the swab to saturate the foam tip with liquid, and then run the swab over the print head until clean.

Swabs are 4.5 inches long and come 25 to a box, which costs $11.95 plus shipping. The products also make nice leave-behind gifts for merchants.

POS Supply also sells card reader and check reader cleaning cards.
