As the owner, sales rep or just helping out.
Share the good, the bad, ugly side of working as a pos agent.

The good
Making great friends and acquaintances. connecting to a greater scale if you know your onions.

I've heard of people who met their partners while working as a pos agent.

the bad
Debts and more debt
You'll see one old man/woman even young peeps will just come and be doing oju anu to please borrow them the smallest amount that they'll pay back, after giving them, they'll stop patronising you and will even stop passing the route of your shop lol grin

the ugly
This one happened to me recently but I serve a living God.
The man came with a jeep highly dressed with an expensive bling, he said he wanted 50k I charged him 1k he said no prob but he's doing transfer.

Inside me I was happy cos that means more commission, oga finished doing the transfer said I should check. While he wait inside his ac motor cos that day was hot af, after 5min he came and asked if I had seen the money I said no, he said maybe its network that he'll wait.

Another 10mins money never drop my scam rader began blinking po po po po.
Oga said I should give him 20k to settle someone while he wait till the money drops, I said mba.

When he saw that I wasn't fazed neither was I moved with his appearance, he suggested to send the money again but if the first 50k entered I should send it back to him and I should manage 5k for being an omo daada, oga did the second transfer showed me his bank app, our company's name and truly it showed successful even the first transfer details that they've not refunded him, I even saw his account balance wey be like recharge card pin grin sibe sibe this madam wasn't fazed.

Oga came back asked me how far, I said none of the two transfer dropped that means no money, he just hissed and drove off. till now I no see any 50k.

Pos work no easy honestly, the bad outweigh the good it's just God that's protecting most of us.

Please share your experience let's learn from each other.

Mmmh, ain't a vendor though but as a customer, one lady forming customer while distracting me, the stupid vendor had my card with him, hovering his phone around my card while forming vid call.
I nearly tear both of them slap.
Was even wearing a green knicker with black round neck that day which eventually helped my situation.

The guy think say nah everyone wey dey Ijebu dey leave for Ijebu.

Guys, please shine your eyes!!

It used to be a good business as far back as 2015, I did my youth service at Ebuwanna Edda in afikpo south in 2015, and a POS guy at Owutu Edda back then was the only person servicing the whole villages in afikpo south local government. Today it's in every nook and cranny of your environment thereby limiting your profits, not mentioning running into debts as a result of fraudsters constantly patronizing you. I see the business fizzling out, I see large crowds lining up in banks for deposits and withdrawals like old times.

This I have seen.

Re: Share Your Experience As A POS Vendor by southniyikaye(m): 2:15pm On Jun 10
My own go long small..
THE GOOD..
When I combine what I make from my three joint venture, I smile every weekend when am balancing my account..
*I became the most popular in my area.. I no wan too loud my location so those big boys/ biggest boys in my area no go Sabi say I dey nairaland.. (are you Dia? You gettti the point now!!

THE BAD
have been attacked 3 times, twice, it was a fake transfer of 50k.. It brought out my name and my full info, and they seem in a hurry. Well, I no shake. Kept my cool, asked for their address and phone number and promised to bring the money to them once it drop, I will bring it without charging kobo.
When they started making funny moves like flashing me weapon, I moved closer to my 50k gas cylinder and held the nossle.. Shebi na craze dem wan see, held the nozzle in my right hand and matches on the other hand, my matches is always handy since I already know sooner or later, I might be attacked.
When they too sensed trouble, they left...

2nd encounter, they were 3,one of them in a military uniform and the other two in mufti, they came with bike..
Immediately they said transfer of 50k and didn't argue about charges, I sensed fraud..
So I used my tactics again, gas nossle in one hand, matches on the other hand but these ones wanted to form stubborn.. I simply made a phone call and shouted, dem Don come back again o.. Dem no even wait to see the outcome...

Avoid giving your sales rep bulky money like 500 naira notes, they tend to make mistakes while counting..
I Don over chop gbese.
Almost all civil servants in my area turned me into a loan merchant.. I later get sense when gbese wan finish me.
It even got to a time, I have to go very early to their house around 5am and shout, they feel embarrassed but I get paid..
To do pos business, you have to be very sensitive and sensible hence, you close shop as soon as you open it..
I dey enjoy free things and free flexing cos na gboys full my area..
You will make friends, you will make enemies, you get free pass from ladies wey believe say you be dangote..
All in all, it is a bitter sweet experience..

I love to patronize just one guy in my area.
Unfortunately,he wasn't around so I decided to patronize his neighbor,she was even rude to me......... undecided
I told her I wanted 35k
After the transaction,no receipt lipsrsealed
Went home to pick my box cus I was traveling.
Got to my destination I no see debit alert o
After 4days the money was still intact..
Came back home only to find out she's no longer there...
2months later,I saw her in a busy market and I called her,madame snubbed me o shocked
I walked up to her,she said she can't remember me.
I told her that there's a time she did a transaction for me and it didn't patch through but she paid me......... Pls can you give me your account number to refund you.
She was speechless smiley
