Changing Credit Card Processing Providers

There are dozens of credit card processing providers on the market these days, which can make it a bit difficult to know which one is right for any given business. For the most part, these companies offer similar services; they process credit card and sometimes even check payments while charging a small fee to the business owner for each transaction. From there, the money is transferred to the business and a record of the transaction is kept. However, there are some significant differences among merchant accounts, which is what makes it so important that business owners do their research carefully before choosing one.

After all, the process of changing credit card processing providers is not typically an easy one. Since some processing companies require contracts of anywhere from six months to two years, business owners may find that they have to pay a fee for terminating a contract prior to its official end date. This fee can be quite expensive. Even companies that do not require a contract can make it a real pain to switch services. Account numbers and other information have to be transferred to the new processing company and this can be a time consuming and laborious process.

Still, it is often worth it to make the switch to different credit card processing companies in the end for those business owners who want to make more profits in the long run. For example, it may be worth it to make the switch if the business owner is able to find a merchant service that has a much lower processing rate for each credit card or check that is run through the service. Over time, the switch can save the company a large chunk of change.

For those who are interested in making the switch to a different company, then, the best thing to do is to speak with a service representative to find out exactly what the switch will entail and what fees, if any, will be assessed. From there, it is also important to gather needed account numbers, download copies of transactions, and take any other necessary steps before making the switch.



It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this 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.
