Many business owners ask us why they should choose a top rated merchant services company over one that offers bare-bones service and limited features outside of basic credit card processing. There are many reasons why you might want to choose the best merchant services you can find, but here are a few of the major points of differentiation.

You shouldn’t skimp on business-critical services

For many businesses, taking credit cards is an extremely important service. Unlike some services, where it doesn’t really impact your business too much if the service fails, or doesn’t work quickly, credit card processing needs to operate flawlessly in order for your business to function.

One key point of differentiation between many top rated merchant services and lower tier companies is their ability to maintain rock-solid credit card processing services around-the-clock. You don’t want a decision based on small (if any) savings in processing fees to open up your business to large potential losses due to a serious problem with the credit card processing service you choose.

The other services that you get matter, too

Your merchant account may seem like it only needs to process credit card transactions, but you also should be able to turn to your merchant services company whenever you have a problem with your credit card processing, or with the equipment that you use. Our firm offers full-service technical support around the clock, ensuring that your business always has an expert on hand to help you troubleshoot any problems that come up.

You have expert advice, on demand

One service that we provide, which differentiates us from many companies who process credit cards, is our support when choosing a credit card machine for your business. We can help you decide between a simple credit card machine or a POS system, and we tailor our recommendations based on the needs of your business. This allows us to suggest options that can help you move your business forward, which can be far more valuable to your business than the combined cost of all the credit card processing fees you pay in a given year.
