Not all payments systems are equal …
– but the most flexible system involves a merchant account
So why consider us?
We are a Direct-to-Merchant service, with no salesmen, commissions, or affiliates adding to your cost. We strive to provide the best rates and services for Merchant Accounts and credit card processing by using our volume to beat the bank. We keep it simple. We have the bank charge a flat rate. In return, the bank pays the statement, gateway, and other costs directly to individual service providers, keeping the merchants out of the billing loop. This is how we have been able to provide the same flat rate service of $24.95/month since 2001. Also, consider these points…
Don’t be short term. Think about the future of your business. Sure, there are a lot of choices when it comes to talking credit cards. Paypal, Square, 3rd Party Fulfillment, etc… the list is long. But with a true merchant account, you’ve dedicated yourself to do the best in your business and to look forward to the future. Why invest in silver when you can get gold for the same price?
A percentage of these fees are often used to pay affiliate and referral commissions. A cancellation fee allows the provider to raise your rates, since it can keep you locked into the merchant account. We want you to feel good about your business and be your best partner in helping you increase sales. For that we strive to keep you happy month after month… Every month.
With us you get a real merchant account, with limits on transaction size and monthly volume set by you and pre-approved by the bank and underwriters.. This guarantees that your funds will be deposited into your bank immediately with no surprises.
Most providers set up separate accounts for your different sales channels. We have merchants with Androids, iPhones, and Blackberries in the field, an ecommerce site taking orders 24/7, and a retail store using Internet-connected PCs as merchant terminals – all on one SINGLE ACCOUNT.
Some merchants want to have a physically signed receipt – we do that. Others want to take a client’s signature electronically and see it on the screen at their office with no transfer of paper – we do that too. Finally, some merchants want to email their customers a receipt – we do them all.
Most companies charge extra for this. With us, all of our merchants get FREE access to the online reporting tools, receipt archive, and a virtual terminal to allow fast entry, retrieval, and analysis of transactions.
You become a registered Visa/Mastercard Merchant with all the privileges that entail. Your name and phone number appear on the cardholder statement. You get deposits of your transactions within 3 days. Typically, a combined Merchant and Gateway accounts (required for smartphone use) will run anywhere from $50 to $100 per month. Our $24.95 bundled flat rate is unprecedented. Again… gold vs silver. Which is right for you?
With a qualified Visa / Mastercard / Discover rate of 1.69% plus 30 cents for swiped transactions, you can get one of the lowest rates in the industry. Don’t be fooled by companies quoting ridiculous rates like 1.10%. Some companies draw you into a multi-year contract and raise the rates afterwards. Also beware of the lease! A 4-year lease on a card terminal will automatically extend your merchant contract to 4 years as well.
Our company has been providing innovative technologies and down-to-earth Merchant/Gateway accounts to our customers since 2001. We have an ‘A’ rating with the BBB, and we do our best to keep the customers happy with our support and service. We don’t have ‘salespeople’ who get you to quickly sign up and then disappear. The people you work with to set up your account will be the same people that answer your questions when you have them. Day after day, we’re here for you.
