What is a merchant services account?
Merchant services are a business’ ability to accept non-cash payments for their goods and services. A good merchant services provider will enable you to offer your customers a variety of convenient and safe payment options. This does wonders for customer satisfaction, customer experience, and it could give you the edge on your competition.
Your merchant services provider should offer a solution for every payment type.
Today’s terminals, or the hardware equipment you place on your countertop alongside your cash register, come equipped with the latest in technology, security, and convenience. Your customers can pay with their debit, credit or chip card, or make a contactless payment.
Some merchant service providers also offer payment gateways––the platform on which online businesses accept payments. This allows customers to make the same types of payments they would in-store.
Ever do business on the go? Mobile payments allow you to accept payments from your mobile device. Either enter the cardholder information manually, or have your merchant service provider send you a portable card reader that’s compatible with your preferred device.
