Why Business Owners Should Shop Around for Merchant Accounts

In a hurry to get started, most small business owners do not take their time when looking at merchant accounts. Instead, when searching, most companies will find the first company that offers a decent product and service. While this will probably work out, a company should take the time to do research and know what they are getting. Here are four reasons why business owners should shop around for merchant accounts.

Customer service: When running a credit card transaction, one will often encounter serious problems. When an employee cannot swipe the card, the business will fail to complete the transaction. Luckily, a serious credit card processing company will have staff on hand who can help over the phone and email. Sadly, in trying to save a few dollars, some entrepreneurs find the cheapest option and end up lost when it comes to fixing problems. Luckily, when shopping around, one can find a company offering superior customer service.

Equipment: When looking at multiple companies, one can find the right equipment for the job. This is more important than most realize as credit card processing is difficult to accomplish with old and outdated equipment. When sitting down with the potential credit card processing company, the potential customer should ask the company if they offer the latest and most up to date machines and technologies. If this is not the case, one should look elsewhere for their merchant account.

Website: Now, most companies have an established Internet presence and want to take advantage of this by selling their products online. Fortunately, with a solid processing company, one can install a shopping cart and accept payments on the Web. Of course, one must verify that this is the case before signing the paperwork. Remember, without an Internet presence, most small businesses will lose to the competition.

Reviews: When looking at merchants, one should read online reviews. With this step, a business owner can uncover and negative information about the company. Often, an entrepreneur will go online and discover that a credit card processor offers terrible customer service or has a poor track record. Luckily, with a five-minute Google search, one can uncover these problems and find a better company.

Without a doubt, a small business owner must do copious amounts of research before finding a merchant company. When taking the time to research and ask questions, one will not overpay or use a poor company.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
