Rate Doesn’t Equal Cost
Selecting the right merchant account service provider for your business shouldn’t only be about shopping for the lowest rates. From fraud protection to live customer service and support, what one company offers at a certain rate won’t always equal that of another. From saving time to handling potential business risks, it’s important to think about added out-of-pocket costs and time spent solving business-critical issues.
TIME IS MONEY
Time spent arguing with customer support when dealing with a potential fraud risk, frozen assets, or chargebacks hinders your business. The time wasted on the phone or spent sending email after email could have been used on more important business matters, including meetings with clients and creating sales. Time is money, and when dealing with time-sensitive matters, spending undue amounts trying to figure out a solution to a problem hurts your business.
LESS INITIAL PROTECTION MAY COST YOU MORE
When your business isn’t protected against fraud, chargebacks, or other business-critical issues, chances are you’re going to lose money dealing with the fallout. In the event of a chargeback, not only can you lose your product or time spent on a service, but you lose the money from the sale. In addition, you may have to go outside your merchant account provider to handle the issue.
MORE IN-HOUSE TECHNOLOGY MEANS LESS OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS
Some merchant account providers offer in-house technology to help your business grow, including payment gateway technology, point-of-sale solutions, and other features. This may bring initial costs to a higher point, but it saves money overall. It gives you the opportunity to keep all systems with the same company. When utilizing technology from several different companies, maintenance cost will be at a high. Using one company’s programs and features will save time and can give you a discounted rate, as you’re using more of the service provider’s features.
