Top Tips To Get Ready For Small Business Saturday®, Proudly Backed By American Express

As a company that serves local business owners and customers, Electronic Payments is proud to join with American Express to support the 10th annual Small Business Saturday® this November 30th.

Small Business Saturday was founded by American Express in 2010 to help strengthen local economies. Today, it’s a holiday shopping tradition and part of a nationwide Shop Small® Movement dedicated to supporting all kinds of small businesses. From the corner store to your favorite diner to a trendy online boutique, it’s unique small businesses like yours that help local communities stay vibrant.


Participating in Small Business Saturday is a great way to reach new customers
and promote your business. Here are some tips for getting involved:
