Welcome! Thanks for stopping by


Are you frustrated with your full and complete understanding of your credit card processing services and all that you’re paying for?  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.  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 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.

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 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.

    Hi Michael,
    Can you tell me if its better to buy a portable credit card processing machine or just loan it from some merchant?

    • Michael says:

      Hey Nick, I guess I’m not real clear on your question. By portable, are you talking about a wireless type terminal or a mobile type processor that would be used on a smart phone? And, further, I’d say that if this is for your business, and you would use it frequently, it’s best to just have one for yourself. In fact, along with credit card processing, I am able to provide FREE terminals whether they be mobile or table top type machines. Also, not sure what you mean by “just loan it from some merchant” since you don’t get these machines from merchants….they come from processors. Hope this helps.
