Business Day

When dealing with many organizations you’ll run into the concept known as a “business day.” This is an important designation to understand. Federal Reserve banks observe all national holidays and are closed on the weekends. The first thing to keep in mind is that Saturday and Sunday will never count as business days. That means that Monday is the first business day following Friday.

There are approximately 15 national, regional, or public holidays in the United States. These days do not count as business days and the banks are closed on these occasions. All 11 national holidays are celebrated in all 50 states. When a national holiday ends up being on a Saturday, it’s held on Friday instead. In the event of it falling on Sunday, it’s bumped to Monday for the observance. State holidays are not observed by the post office or banks, although many private businesses will close on those days. You can always check a holiday calendar or contact your bank specifically to ask them whether they’ll be open on a certain day.

On business days which are not holidays, weekends, or special days where the bank has decided to close, any person with an account can present their transactions to the bank for approval. Business days can be confusing if they’re ignored. People may wait for a transaction to go through, only to find out it hasn’t happened yet. If you ever have a question about processing times, ask the institution to give you the specifics. Financial companies follow “business day conventions” which govern how they handle all transactions. For many credit card processing companies, approvals are done at the time of the sale. When checking your statements, you may notice that credit transactions take several days to go through. This is a normal part of the process for credit transactions.

It’s useful to familiarize yourself with your statements and to keep track of your transactions. You can avoid ever going over your limit if you pay attention to business days conventions and your current transaction totals. The process is easier than ever to track because of online access.



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.

It is a pleasure dealing with these folks. Their pricing is fair, their statements are understandable and their employees are knowledgeable and friendly.

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.

Linda Garner from Regali Da Forno

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.
