Charging for copier scans?September 27, 2017I went up against a big Canon dealer here on Long Island, the customer gave me some paperwork to review and asked me if I can compete as my company came highly recommended. I saw that this competitor was very close on the numbers for the copier lease itself but then noticed that they charge for scans! It appears that a number of companies are doing this now. You see, they are cutting the cost per copy to compete against other businesses and then they stick the customer with scan charges!I remember the talk about this 17 years ago but nothing really came out of it because it was very obvious that something like this is just another way of “sticking it” to the customer.But yes, this past month I met with two different customers who are using a very large, well known Canon dealer and another big Sharp dealer here on Long Island that were victims of this ridiculous fee of charging for scans.You see, the big copier dealers are desperately trying to survive as the average customers yearly volume is dropping because of more paperless technology and E fax and going green that they are seeking another “niche” to stick it to the customers.Don’t worry, at PJD Business Machines (Long Islands Copier Sales Company) we never did nor will we ever charge for scans.Feel free to contact us and we can put you in the right lease for your company, if it is a desktop copier or an 80 cpm full blown copier, our sales team is here for you and will work out the best deal possible.Remember the old saying, if it looks too good to be true, then chances are it is.Beware of the Snake-oil Salesman!
