Intuit is offering thousands of dollars in prizes for businesses that upload video testimonials about using its GoPayment mobile card reader.

The Mountain View, Calif., technology company also said May 22 that according to a survey it conducted of small-business owners, 55% of small merchants do not accept credit cards. This potentially costs each business $7,000 a year in sales from consumers who prefer to shop at merchants that accept cards.

To promote its product and its survey results, Intuit is offering two $10,000 prizes in a sweepstakes to merchants that add videos to its Get Business Growing website, which already features videos showing how a barber shop, dog nanny and golf academy used its hardware to handle payments.

Consumers can also participate by sharing merchants' videos on social networks. Intuit is offering four $1,000 prizes in its sweepstakes to people who share its videos.
