Sometimes using an online credit card processing company is the best thing you can do for your business. Did you know most customers are willing to pay a convenience fee in order to keep their account information safe? You will find that most customers do not carry their personal checkbooks with them anymore. The built in safety features like PIN protection and the ability to quickly de-activate a credit card with a simple phone call allow customers to rest easy on the fact that their money is safe. If you don’t accept credit cards, you may have experienced the shock and even anger at the inconvenience. You may be afraid that customers won’t pay a convenience fee if you charge it and that you’ll lose business. This is especially true of businesses that require many small purchases. But customers want to feel like they are safe when making payments and this is why they choose to use their credit cards. Using the right merchant services with a secure payment gateway allows you to connect better with your customers and increase sales.
