In today’s market, merchants are aware of the growing reliance of consumers on credit cards as a preferred form of payment. Whether your business is online, on-site or a combination of both, you must have the capability to accept credit cards if you want to stay on top of this trend. With the help of a gateway payment organization such as the Merchants Bancard Network (MBN), you can use your existing computer terminal in combination with a mobile credit card reader to quickly and securely accept credit card payments.
When processing payments through a desktop or laptop computer, the first step is to connect a credit card reader to your computer with a USB cord. This way, the information is automatically transferred when you swipe the customer’s card. As opposed to the old method of hand-keying the information, when you connect to a computer, you save time and ensure the accuracy of your customer’s information.
Along with state-of-the-art credit card reader equipment, MBN will supply a DVD which, when inserted into your computer’s disk drive, installs the mobile credit program. As simple as that, you’ve now turned your computer into a mobile credit card payment processor!
Spend less time with accounting
Most small businesses rely on software-based accounting systems like Quickbooks. Accounting software comes with modules for each area of business accounting; everything from accounts receivables, billing, sales orders, inventory and more. When you accept credit card payments directly through your computer, all of the information is automatically input into the appropriate modules of your accounting system. The integration of your sales and accounting system saves valuable time in terms of having to key information in after each sale.
Start accepting payments fast
When you open up a merchant account with MBN you’ll be surprised at how easily and quickly you’ll be ready to start accepting credit card payments using your computer. MBN provides you with easy, accurate credit card readers, integration software, and the backing of their decades in the industry. And perhaps most importantly, they are unparalleled in their attention to both accuracy and security.
Your customers can rest comfortably, knowing that when they make a purchase their private financial and personal information will be well-protected.
