Choosing a merchant service provider

All small businesses need to have some type of credit and debit card processing. If you’re in the market for a merchant service provider, you may find the search process to be overwhelming. But, ultimately, your decision should be based upon your customers’ preferences and your pocketbook.

Merchant service providers offer services that enable your business to process credit and debit card payments from your customers. Think of them as the “middleman” between your bank account and that of your customer. They facilitate the transfer of funds between the two accounts.

The type of merchant service provider that is best for your business depends upon your specific situation. Many of today’s merchants are conducting their business online so it is vital that they have a stable and secure payment gateway in today’s world of increased electronic theft and credit card fraud. If you’re a brick and mortar retailer, you’re going to want to consider the type and quality of hardware including POS terminals, credit card swipers and PIN Pads that a merchant service provider has to offer.

Rates the fit your business needs

Another consideration when selecting a merchant service provider are the fees and monthly costs involved for setting up your merchant account. The fees that a provider charges are based on the volume of transactions and the total amount of revenue that is generated as well as the type of credit cards you take.

Rates can vary depending on whether you are going to process payment through an online shopping cart, at a brick and mortar location, over the phone, or a combination of all three. When comparing fees and rates between providers, make sure that you ask questions about installation, programming and annual fees. Will you need to sign a lease or contract? Are there cancellation fees? Are their fees and rate policies easy to understand?

Integrating your shipping softwarewith your merchant account

If you run an e-commerce business, you know that the number of credit card transactions that are done over the internet are growing in leaps and bounds. Now that you can keep your online store open 24/7, you need to be able to concentrate on your business without having to worry about logistical issues such as shipping. If you are using two separate systems and are entering customer data more than one time, this leads to an increased risk of errors which could cost you time and money.

By integrating shipping software into your payment platform system, you’ll save yourself time and money, and you’ll be able to focus your energy on your growing business as well as providing good customer service. Shipping software integration can help automate and streamline the shipping process by:

  • tracking shipments
  • prioritizing orders

  • coordinating purchase orders and invoicing
  • creating a link between product production and warehousing
