Nova Merchant Funding, a reputable firm offering seamless credit card processing services to merchants around the globe, offers advice on making informed decisions to save money when choosing a merchant funding services provider.
Online PR News – 03-December-2009 – New York, New York – “Making the decision to open a merchant account to accept and process credit and debit card payments is an important step for business owners,” says Jason Agivaive, owner and founder of Nova Merchant Funding (http://www.novamerchantfunding.com), a company dedicated to offering credit card processing services at affordable prices. “Unfortunately, many merchants don’t know where to begin their search for a merchant account and often end up signing on for costly services with little or no support.”
According to Agivaive, there is a misconception among business owners that accepting credit card payments is a costly expense. In some cases, he says, that is true. But it doesn’t have to be.
“One of the things to be wary of when searching for a credit card processing provider are promises of low rates,” Agivaive says. “These incredibly and often unbelievable low rates are usually nothing more than a smokescreen, meant to draw a potential customer’s attention away from unexpected fees.”
Agivaive says that merchants should consider all costs and fees, rather than relying solely upon percentage rates, when choosing a merchant funding service. He goes on to say that one of those fees, which should be avoided at all costs, is a termination fee.
“There are plenty of merchant funding providers that do not charge termination fees,” says Agivaive. “A quality merchant account provider will find more innovative ways to keep your business, such as quality products and good customer service.”
Another way to save money on your merchant accounts, according to Agivaive, is to look for discounted credit card processing equipment. Nearly all products will work with any processor, he says, giving merchants an array of products and price options to choose from.
“If you take the time to shop around, you will find the perfect solution for your needs and your budget,” says Agivaive. “Most importantly, look for a credit card processing service that will work with potential clients to help then choose the product and service that is the right fit for their unique business needs.”
