What Merchant Processing Services are Right for Your Small Business?
Once you’ve decided on obtaining a merchant account for your small business, the question then becomes what kind of services are right for your business. Every business has different needs, especially when it comes to small vendors, which makes research a must when searching for your account provider.
For Vendors on the Go
Modern technology has made credit card transactions on the go simpler than ever. Many merchant processors offer convenient apps for vendors traveling to trade shows and markets. These apps require little to no additional hardware other than your smart phone, and offer all the conveniences of a merchant account. Vision Payments’ Mobile App requires no payment terminal or phone line, only your customer’s credit card information!
For Extra Security
One of the most important features of any merchant account should guaranteed PCI compliance. PA-DSS guidelines are the gold standard when it comes to transaction security—anything less might spell trouble for you and your customers in the future. For additional security, look for merchant accounts and merchant account software that offer SSL encryption, password protection, customer verification, and fraud protection.
For Easy Money Management
If you’re looking for simplicity, look for a merchant account with consistent, hassle-free management and reporting. Discuss your merchant account’s reporting system with your agent to ensure that you’re always informed of your company’s transactions. Vision Payments offers easy online reporting for vendors that want around-the-clock access to their transaction information, which makes it easier to track your business’ process, manage your profits, and make plans regarding your business’ future.
For a Little Extra Guidance
Look for companies willing to put their customers first. Some merchant account providers rely on one-size-fits-all solutions that unfortunately don’t work for everyone. Look for a provider that’s willing to work with your business to give you exactly the tools you need to get your job done. And make sure that you’re comfortable with your provider’s policies and practices. A good relationship with your provider can go a long way in providing you with peace of mind as you try to help your business grow.
