Referring Merchants to Credit Card Processing Companies

Merchant accounts are a necessity for businesses of all sizes. More than 80 percent of consumers use credit cards or debit cards to make most of their purchases. Therefore, every business could increase its profits by using credit card processing machines and accounts. Merchant accounts are special accounts that allow a business to accept endless credit card transactions. A business owner can obtain one of these accounts by completing an application with a reputable company. The business will be capable of accepting credit card payments shortly after the account becomes active.

Credit card processing companies help a business to run smoothly. These companies provide bank accounts into which the merchants can receive credit card funds. The processing company usually charges at set fee per transaction for the merchant. That fee is somewhere between 2 to 4 of each total transaction. New businesses will have higher charges because of a limited credit or business history.

The charge varies with each processing company, which is why it is imperative that a business owner conduct thorough research before signing up for any merchant account. The person must be extremely careful by reading all the fine print in the agreement. Some card processing companies charge fees that are much higher than the ones that other companies charge are. One company may charge “additional transaction fees,” which can add up fast for a busy business. Additionally, the processing company may charge fees for chargebacks and such occurrences.

A merchant account may have a monthly maintenance fee if the business does not conduct a large volume of credit card sales. In such a situation, a merchant account may cost the business owner an additional $10 to$25 per month.

Referring Merchants to Credit Card Processing Companies for a Fee

A business owner who has an established merchant account may be eligible to earn additional money by referring other merchants to the same processing company. Processing companies that issue these referral bonuses usually state such on their front page. The terms of different processing companies may vary. Some of them state that they will give a $100 bonus shortly after the new customer creates a merchant account. Other companies ask the merchants to wait a certain amount of time before they receive their referral bonuses. Some companies may have a limit on the amount of referrals one client can perform. Information on referral bonuses is available through the processing company.



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.
