Everyone knows that in order to succeed in the business world today, a company has to be able to accept credit card payments online. Many customers prefer to pay this way – because it is fast and secure – and they will usually deny their patronage to businesses that cannot take plastic. To be able to process credit cards (and other) forms of payment, the company would have to obtain an online merchant account and affordable services from a credit card payment processing company. This can sometimes be a challenge – some credit card processors have a way of duping their clients into paying high fees and rates for shoddy services and weak security. Even worse – the merchant accounts these processors give their clients are not always private. A company applying for one could be told that it has been approved, but – in reality – the processor is simply running the company’s credit card payment information through the processor’s own merchant account so it can control the flow of money and charge hidden fees. This kind of treatment would make any business wary about dipping its toes in the waters of credit card services.
Charge.com is the one processor that believes a business deserves its own, individual merchant account at a fair price. There is no fee to apply for one, and it takes almost no time at all to complete the application. Once approved for a private, PIN/EIN-secured merchant account, a client can begin using it within 24-48 hours to safely process all forms of payment. Charge.com customers do not have to worry about lengthy financial holds and hidden charges, either. They have complete control over the funds once the monies are deposited in their accounts, and there should be no discrepancy between the amount that is expected and the sum that is delivered. Charge.com offers its clients upfront pricing at some of the most affordable rates around. Businesses can pay as low as 0.25% for credit card processing, and only $0.15 for each transaction. That is fair, indeed.
The affordability and excellent that Charge.com can offer is above-and-beyond the industry standards, and this has not gone unnoticed by top trade reviewers. Apple Computer, for example, gave Charge.com its highest rating, and praised the processor’s customer support when it came to Internet payment gateway services. NBCi highlighted Charge.com’s generosity to new clients, including the absence of application and software set-up fees. AOL also gave Charge.com’s clear and simple processing their highest possible ratings, and Yahoo lauded the company’s extremely low rates and willingness to forgo charging a fee for the application process. Other benefits Charge.com customers can look forward to include:
- FDIC-Insured accounts
- Real-time payment processing
- Instant e-check verification
- Immediate transaction notifications
- Free technology with software
- Free expert technical support available 24/7/365
- Domestic and international accounts easily accessible
- Better market exposure for small and independent businesses
Accepting credit cards is a necessary part of doing business today – as any company can attest. Taking payments on plastic, however, should not be costly or inconvenient. Charge.com leads the industry in providing first-rate services and reasonable pricing for its clients – and people are starting to take note.
