Processing Mail Order Credit Card Payments

Although a lot of businesses operate solely in person or online, the mail order catalogs of yesterday can be just as popular with many shoppers. However, some business owners who are interested in marketing their products through mail order catalogs and other similar advertising methods wonder about one thing: How will they accept and process mail order credit card payments?

Even though one option is to accept checks and money orders only, this really isn’t preferable in most cases. More and more people are beginning to rely on using their credit and debit cards each day, and those who can’t use them with one business might just make their purchases somewhere else where they can. Therefore, it’s always a great idea for any business owner who is interested in opening a mail order business to look into payment processing options that will allow him or her to take credit and debit cards.

In order to offer payment processing for credit and debit cards via mail order, business owners must seek out a credit card processing company that will allow them to do so. Luckily, there are quite a few companies out there that offer credit card processing, but it is important for business owners to look for merchant accounts that offer specialized services for mail order purposes.

For example, merchant accounts that require for a card to be present and swiped in order to be processed won’t work for mail order credit card payments. Instead, business owners who run these mail order companies must look for merchant accounts that will allow them to enter the credit card information, such as the credit card numbers and expiration dates of their customers’ cards, in order to accept the payments. Although many credit card processing companies do offer this type of service, it is important for business owners to make sure that they do before signing up for merchant processing that won’t work for their mail order businesses.

Those who are seeking out credit card processing for this type of business should also look at other things to make sure that they are choosing the right company for their needs, such as a company that doesn’t charge exorbitant rates and that doesn’t require a long-term contract. Fortunately, these options are out there as long as business owners take their time in looking for exactly the credit card processing services that they need for their mail order companies.

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.
