Title: For non member drivers
Post by: john m on January 06, 2020, 11:44:27 pm
Stop the Crap about turning it off because some other cunt will cover the work and laugh his bollox off at you .For once use your heads ,ask yourself why do customers like using the app .In some cases its easier to find a taxi .2 you can pay by card 3 you get a digital reciept handy for claiming tax back or refund of fare from your company .Now logic we all need to accept cards from February .If you use Sum Up or other payment options you can issue a digital reciept plus you can always issue paper reciepts .FN /Hailo selling point was pay by card now we all have to take card .My advice or suggestion is simple .Put A sticker up to the allowable size on your vehicle simply stating Independent taxi drivers we take ALL credit cards and issue Digital reciepts .COMISSION FREE .Now people will ask what do you mean Commission Free I wonder how many people staying in hotels paying top dollar know the hotel is demanding that by using the app they are extorting 2 euro from drivers for a service which should be available for free outside the Hotel .If more people decide to use Independent drivers the novelty value of the app will fall away .I wonder how many customers know that the App tracks their movement from pick up to drop off .

There is something you all can do to help .Show other drivers how your Sum Up or other system works .A lot of lads are not great with Tech stuff so wont leave the app because they think taking a card is difficult .If you want to take back your industry you need to actually help your competition I know that sounds counter intuitive but we need to undermine the App .There is a break even point for the apps and their costs are high .Thats why so many fail .Its up to you to adapt to the New Card requirement and use it to YOUR advantage .

That's largely bollox, erm. Folk are only using cards because Free Now programme them to use cards. Even at that most of my Free Now work is cash. Anywaysanall, your Sumup system can't compete with Free Now on two major fronts. First, it will reject payment if the client has no funds available, Free Now won't. Second, your client needs to have his card with him and hang around waiting (could be well over an hour on New Year's Eve, for example) for the transaction to be authorised, with Free Now they don't need to root around for the card they just get out and get on with whatever they're doing wherever they're going.

Also, remember that once you invite consideration by any means other than legal tender the onus is on you to collect the same rather than the legal norm of the person who incurs the debt being responsible for its discharge. In short, no mobile signal or no internet = no money for you.

Within 5 years Legal Tender as you call it when you really mean cash will be obsolete .Central banks are printing useless currency that they do not have the assetts to cover ,banking as we know it will be over you will shop around and your bank will be Amazon,Facebook ,Google ,Tesla .They have more cash and assetts than any of the major banks .On the delayed acceptance of jobs 5G will sort that out

Warren Buffett the great investor is buying shares in companies with valuations of 100 times earnings and thinks that they are value .Google only paid their first divident this year Apple do not pay a dividend .The FED has printed money US investors have borrowed it and bought up shares soon there will be no more shares to be bought Private equity will own them all then they will start their own currencies backed by the value of their holdings .Remember central banks are only limited companies regulated by nations but owned by private individuals .The future of capital is trading points .You work making stuff you get paid by your employer putting trading points into your trading account ,you pay for stuff by transfering some of your points to another person like paying for a taxi the taxi driver uses his card to purchase fuel at no stage has cash changed hands .As long as we know our trading points will be accepted for stuff we dont need to worry if its The Bank of England FED or ECB who promise to pay the bearer on demand .Why the fuck do you think FB or Google or Amazon want your data thats how they will set your credit worthiness and as they will control the trading system they will always get paid as all monies will be virtual no hiding cash or non payments .

No need for half the public sector when cashless becomes the norm as it is in Scandinavia and some German provinces. The lads and lassies in Inland Revenue will have to look at alternatives to harvest blood. Are those 400 people still working in Uber in Limerick?

Here is the dilemma .Services like Uber,Netflix on line bookies dial a dinner Amazon all competing for your coin but wages are stagnant have been for over 15 years wages have only marked inflation no increase but lots more services on offer .Workers are now only on subsistence look at Big Dommos Family all shopping out of catalogs and paying 22% interest .Years ago a worker was generating product and value today a worker generates credit .US economy is booming because the people are spending on credit .Britain the same buy your sofa or bed or clothes on instant credit .You even hear adverts in the UK to get your credit rating for free .Soon the machine will control your life and your credit rating .Tommy Two Scars daughters fella was refused a car loan because he had a Paddy Power account .Dealet told him to come back in 3 months when he had a bank statement without a Paddy Power payment .The day is coming when Nation States will be obsolete and Big Corporations will rule over us .

Face Book are to launch their own digital currency but whats to stop international international Corporation based in a post box down the Google Ghetto from buying Facebook and their currency .Big oil is on the way out but big finance is the new oil Soon the Jews and the Muslims will control all the cash and the Christians can have the bread and wine .Trump saw the danger gave free money to American Business to hike up stock prices to try to prevent oil money from buying up America .Wait a few years when American and other pension funds realize the shares they invested in are not paying dividends and are overpriced and nobody wants to buy them .Dont know if you remember the film the Million dollar banknote lad goes shopping and everybody gives him credit until they realize he will never cash the note as nobody has that amount of cash or wants the problem of taking the note that they then have to cash
