During my two decades in this industry, I have heard many complaints from merchants relative to their merchant accounts. The most common one, however, seems to be that they simply don’t fully understand all that they are being charged. Have you ever felt this way yourself? Don’t feel bad since you are like the majority of merchants I come in contact with. Unfortunately, it’s quite often by design that you are pretty much kept in the dark about your merchant services. Hopefully, this site, my email course and frequently posted articles, will help bring clarity and enlightenment.
I’m assuming that since you are on my site, that you are either a merchant, or accountant that has a desire to learn more about credit card processing. Hopefully, your visit today won’t be disappointing. Take some time to read a few articles but, most importantly, fill in the form at the right and subscribe to my FREE email course entitled “Understanding Credit Card Processing”. This course was originally being sold nationally, on this site, for $47. It received great acclaim from merchants for its thoroughness and great displeasure from those in the industry…for its, well, thoroughness. I felt that offering it for FREE would open up the opportunity for more hard working business owners to expand their knowledge. By the time you’re done with the course, you’ll know more than probably 80% of the reps contacting you. The easily digestible lessons are spread out over approximately a month so as to not be overwhelming. I’m confident you will find the knowledge gathered to be extremely helpful so why not take it for a spin. And, of course, rest assured, your name and email address are safe with me.
It’s unfortunate that in the world of credit card processing, there are numerous reps that are….well, let me just say, less than ethical. Typically, it’s not their fault as they have had less than stellar training. The bottom line is this….all processors have the same cost so, consequently, every one of them could, theoretically offer the same pricing to you. But, what happens when a rep walks thru your door….”I’ll bet I can offer you better rates than you’re currently paying“. They mostly focus on rates, don’t they? Sound familiar? Well, honestly, it’s not just about rates and, as a merchant, that shouldn’t be your focus either. Ask lot’s of questions (you’ll find some good ideas in the course) of those trying to sell you and, in addition, be cognizant of how many questions they are asking you about your business and how you transact business. Are they truly interested in offering and providing “solutions” or are they primarily interested in just “selling” you? My success in this business has always been by developing, and maintaining, mutually rewarding relationships. That’s what you should be looking for and hopefully, you’ll discover information here that will be beneficial in that endeavor. Remember, Benjamin Franklin once said…”An investment in knowledge, pays the best interest“.
Keep in mind that while I will never actively solicit your processing business here. I am, however, available to answer any questions that you may have regarding your current relationship. And, if after spending some time here, you desire my assistance with your credit card processing needs, I would welcome the opportunity.
I have relationships with several merchant services providers and will place your business with the most appropriate entity that will provide exactly what your needs require and do so in a totally transparent manner. I can offer truly FREE EQUIPMENT along with no long-term contract like most processors insist on. I believe we need to “earn” your business daily with superb customer service and great rates rather than simply keep your business because you’re tied to a contract. Additionally, I can help by providing other business solutions for increasing your sales and, subsequently, your bottom line.
While this site is primarily about merchant services, you will sometimes articles posted discussing other marketing and business ideas that I have found to be beneficial to business owners.
So, with that said, welcome and thanks for coming by. If you have any specific questions or comments, please post them here. If there’s a business related type topic that you’d like to see covered, please let me know.
To Your Continued Success
