Merchant Service Provider

Small businesses make up the vast majority of businesses in the United States, with more than 80% of existing companies falling into this category. That number jumps up to a whopping 87% when you consider the companies that have been created since 2010. Many merchant processing services formerly utilized only by larger companies are now being made available to smaller organizations, allowing them to be more competitive and profitable. One of these key services is a merchant account, which allows companies to accept credit and debit card payments through a special merchant account.

The Makings of a Good Merchant Service Provider

Let’s answer the obvious question “Do small businesses really need a merchant service provider?” with an emphatic YES!

A merchant account is the most cost effective method of accepting payments by debit or credit cards. The explosion of ecommerce businesses has created an even bigger need for merchant services. Either way, whether you have a brick and mortar storefront or an online website, you will definitely need a merchant service provider.

Can you imagine if you had to wait for a check or money order when someone placed an order for your product or service? A merchant service provider adds credibility to your business as it shows you are serious about what you do. To compete in today’s business environment, a business account is necessary to process payments quickly and easily.

Transparent is a merchant service provider that makes a commitment to each and every customer ensuring the best service, the most secure transactions possible, and with the least number of fees. Because the card transactions are encrypted both when entered into the system and when sending the funds to your merchant account, the risk of error and fraud is greatly reduced. You spend less time following up on issues and more time enjoying the sales process.

Small and large transactions are safely processed. You can rest assured that your monthly statements will reflect your actual business activity. The variance in fees is clearly stated before you make your first transaction. Both you and your customer are covered.

Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in the U.S., and customers are increasingly reluctant to share their personal information with sellers. A merchant service provider offers buyers the safety and security of allowing the purchaser to input their own information on your website, or swipe the card in person. This significantly reduces security concerns and errors that may occur. When the card is verified and approved, the money is deposited directly into your merchant account. With the added level of security, the customer has no issues with coming back again.

Choosing the Right Merchant Service Provider

There are literally hundreds of merchant service providers to choose from, and this daunting task can be both confusing and time consuming. A dependable, accurate, and customer-focused merchant provider will be very upfront about costs, all sorts of fees, and the processing of a transaction.
