Card Payment Advice can offer free, impartial advice to help you find the best merchant service suppliers for your business requirements.
Financial consolidation and control is the cornerstone of a successful business. You need to be sure that money coming in is being processed and accounted for in a smooth, problem-free way.
However, you don’t want to find that the fees you pay to support your transactions are eating away at your profit margins.
Also, it’s equally important to manage customer experience. If someone is using your online store or visiting your premises in person, they want to be able to make payments in a streamlined and effortless way. Giving your customers confidence that you take security and privacy seriously can generate more sales.
This all means that having the right merchant services in place is pivotal to your business success and growth. And that means matching your business needs to the right provider.
What is a merchant services provider?
Merchant services is a broad term that relates to the financial support you need to run a modern business. This often focuses on systems to help you to take non-currency payments, such as credit or debit card transactions. Increasingly, merchant services are being developed to process Bitcoin and electronic payment systems too.
Whatever software you use as a payment gateway connects your online basket (or Point of Sale system) to whoever provides your merchant services.
Whichever provider you have chosen would then check and authorise the transaction. The next step would be for them to subsequently process the payment and add the funds to your bank account.
Wide choice for merchant services provision
There are increasing numbers of financial organisations offering a package of merchant services, from high street banks to specialist digital companies.
Each merchant services provider is likely to offer you their own software and devices to assist in processing transactions. These can range from online payment gateways to Point of Sale devices for a physical shop. Additional charges usually apply to the technology to support the merchant services.
