Ewing to Launch New Contractor Rewards Program

Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply will be launching the Ewing ProAdvantage Program, a customer rewards program designed for irrigation and landscape contractors. The ProAdvantage Program will feature reward benefits that can be redeemed for points earned on purchases, as well as business resources and discounts that can be utilized after signing up.

Built with contractors’ needs in mind, the ProAdvantage Program offers more than points and redemption options. The program’s intent is to aid contractors in all areas of business, including resources to help elevate the value and efficiency of their business model, discounts on back office resources like marketing solutions, accounting and payroll, proven workbooks and guides for all human resource functions and access to options allowing them to offer homeowner financing through Synchrony Financial.


What’s the Proper Path for Better Payments?

ProgressiveGrocer.com says that just as the holiday season was getting in gear, CVS Pharmacy offered a glimpse at the future of payments in the food retail world and beyond.

The drug store chain launched a service enabling customers to check out touch-free using PayPal and Venmo QR codes at 8,200 stores. These codes allow customers to securely pay for their items without needing to touch a keypad or sign a receipt, while also being able to access multiple payment methods available in PayPal and Venmo wallets.

According to CVS, this made it the first national retailer to integrate PayPal and Venmo QR code technology in its point-of-sale experience at all stand-alone locations across the country. The touch-free experience will be available to existing PayPal and Venmo customers, while new customers can sign up and link their preferred payment method, usually within minutes.
