Cartridge World is the world’s largest dedicated specialty retailer of ink and toner printer cartridges. According to their website, http://cartridgeworld.com, they are “committed to providing great value, top quality refilled and remanufactured printer cartridges that are backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.”
There are 1,400 Cartridge World stores in over 50 countries, 600 alone in North America, and one located right here in Scarborough, Maine.
Phil Coupe, President and Franchise Owner of the Scarborough store, says there are three types of customers Cartridge World sees on a daily basis — walk-in, residential, and students who purchase regular ink cartridges, and over 400 businesses who purchase laser toner cartridges.
A new Sponsor of the Maine Franchise Owners Association, PowerPay was founded in 2003 in Portland, Maine. The company is a premier provider of integrated eCommerce payment and point-of-sale (POS) processing solutions. Its products and services include credit and debit card processing, fast and easy access to merchant funding and high-touch, local customer service. Currently serving over 60,000 merchants in the U.S. and Canada, on an average day PowerPay processes more than 150,000 credit card transactions safely, securely and efficiently.
Kristopher Lavallee, Senior Business Developer and Technology Specialist, says PowerPay has been providing best-in-class merchant services to Cartridge World for more than five years. “Cartridge World chose PowerPay,” Lavallee says, “for three simple reasons: reliable processing, easy access to working capital and exceptional local customer support.”
Cartridge World’s Coupe says he also appreciates the company’s direct approach. “The sales person didn’t beat around the bush and gave me the lowest price available so I didn’t have to keep shopping around. I’ve found,” he says, “that even when I get special offers in the mail from other companies, PowerPay is still the one to beat when it comes to pricing and products.”
