Every community needs a food store and the people who run food stores are passionate about delivering quality foods to the communities they serve. Food stores are run by operators with an entrepreneurial spirit. These local gems are similar to grocery stores. The difference between the two is that grocery stores typically have a larger footprint. Some food stores will offer store charges so that families can take food away and then receive a bill monthly. This adds a friendly in town experience for locals. The food store stocks most of the essentials for a community and often includes a butcher counter and grab and go food options. It is ideal for a town to have grocery stores as well as food stores. Some smaller towns rely on a single food store to supply fresh goods for the entire area. Food stores enrich an area by bringing food and other essentials close to the households they serve.   

Operating an in-town food store requires a central location within a community. Some food stores have online sales and delivery as an additional offering to their customers while others operate exclusively as web-based businesses. These exclusively web-based food stores typically specialize in unique products that are difficult to access as demand is limited and not supported in local markets. Web based ordering is common as an offering for local pickup at community food stores. Food stores are typically staffed with managers, stock laborers, butchers and food preparers, cashiers and automated checkout devices. These enterprises often run using on premise software and software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology. Such applications offer inventory records, employee management, online ordering, billing, invoicing and food store payments.

Payment Integrator works with foods stores to integrate payment processing with new and existing on premise and SaaS based point of sale systems. Our gateway handles credit card and debit card payments as well as e-wallet transactions like Apple Pay and Google Pay. We can communicate with food store accounting modules through integrated APIs and a hosted payment page (HPP) solution that is secure and PCI Compliant. Advanced tokenization makes it possible to create customer profiles to setup scheduled payments, payment plans and to manage invoicing for house account food store payments.
