San Antonio is a town significant in the rich and vast history of Texas. The San Antonio River flows from its heart and head south, to join the darker waters of the Guadalupe. Several historic missions – including the San Juan Capistrano, San Antonio, and of course, the Alamo – are here, too, as is the divine Spanish Governor’s Palace – a reminder that Texas was once land under Spanish colonial rule. Many national monuments and parks also dot the terrain, which they now share with an increasing number of ultramodern attractions designed to entertain some of the city’s 33 million yearly visitors. Sea World San Antonio is here, along with Six Flags Fiesta Texas, and a Japanese tea Garden. There is a stadium that can seat thousands upon thousands of screaming basketball fans, too. There is no doubt about it – San Antonio is moving onward and upward with its eyes on the future.
What is not changing are the high payment processing fees merchants in the city get charged by processors as part of conducting business. Every time someone inserts their card into credit card readers, payment processing companies bill the merchant a sum for running that information through a merchant account to collect the funds. Ideally, each business should have its own merchant account with its processor, but that does not always happen. A good portion of the time, a credit card payment processing company will run all of the clients’ information through its own merchant account, but still charge them hefty fees as if private accounts were being maintained for each business. After collecting a business’s money from the customers, a processor will sometimes sit on the funds before releasing them to the owner.
These actions by the processors are neither efficient nor secure. Hackers could break into a processor’s merchant account and steal information from dozens – if not hundreds – businesses. Preventing business owners from accessing their hard-earned funds does not provide any commercial stability, either. If they cannot get their money, then the companies/stores will run out of supplies/merchandise and lose business – it is that simple.
