As a business owner or decision maker in a larger organization, your goals include saving money, reducing debt, and building your business in any way possible. You probably know that accepting credit and debit card payments, both in-person and online is one of the most important ways to meet your goals. However, you may not realize that every payment processing provider is different—some vastly different. That’s why it is important to research the options and choose the best one for your business. Consider these five things you should look for from your enterprise merchant services company.
Works In-Person and Online
Today’s business world is much different than it was even 10 or 15 years ago. Many firms operate both online and off. If you do not have an online presence yet, there is a good chance you may think about it in the future, so having the ability to take payments through a website or by phone is an amazing feature that cannot be overlooked.
Added Payment Features
Did you ever think about how helpful it would be to be able to email invoices? What about setting up reoccurring billing plans? These little features are not found with every enterprise merchant services program, but when you have them, you can save time and provide added services to your customers.
Accepts a Variety of Payment Types
Customers today expect you to take more than just Visa and MasterCard. Being able to accept major debit cards, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express, as well as electronic checks (ACH), gives you an edge over the competition that is still struggling to find a way to work with credit payments in the first place.
Once you accept the payment, the transaction isn’t complete. The best payment providers will give you tools to make accounting a breeze. If your payment provider integrates with your accounting program, you will find that your bookkeeping process is much faster and less prone to errors.
Affordable and Scalable Payment Processing Solutions
There can be numerous costs involved with accepting credit and debit card payments. Finding a payment provider that is upfront about the expenses, and offers a fair pricing plan is key. Additionally, having a plan that can start small and grow with you will allow you to save money now and in the future too.
While you may think it would be difficult to find one payment processing provider that “does it all,” it is not only possible—it is simple: Quickbooks. Yes, the same same company that has revolutionized business accounting has also made it simple to accept credit and debit payments too.
