Thanks to the Internet, many businesses of all types are now being managed from home. Home-based businesses are a great boost to the quality of life for todays’ entrepreneurs. Running a business from home does not mean limiting your access to customers. After all, a web-based retailer reaches the world instead of just their local community. And some service providers meet their clients at a home or business location, so they don’t necessarily need their own separate business address. Goods from the kitchen, home art studio, or craft room can be picked up at your door, or you can deliver them. Every one of these types of business has the potential to increase their profits by accepting credit card payments, if they don’t already. Here’s how: apply for a merchant account, which is what you need to process credit card payments.
Virtually any home-based business can accept credit card payments
Almost any home-based business can accept credit card payments for goods and services online, by fax, over the phone, face-to-face and by mail order. This remarkable and secure credit card process works automatically for website orders 24 hours a day and manually for over-the-phone, mail-order and face-to-face orders using Internet processing software. Payment is automatic within seconds; you don’t have to do anything except fulfill the order. If the product, like ebooks, subscriptions, memberships and more can be delivered over the web, then that can also be automatically delivered. This is the most versatile credit card processing system because it works brilliantly for any and all transactions.
Many home-based businesses can also benefit from wireless mobile credit card processing. It can work with your smartphone so that you can receive credit card payments at your door, at the customers’ door, at flea markets, at a farmers market, on the street, or anywhere else that works for your business.
Accept credit card payments with no upfront fees
You could pay a lot of money for application fees, equipment, software, set-up fees, technical assistance and more. Some companies will charge you to cancel service. Home businesses that are just getting started might think they don’t have the cash flow for a merchant account provider. Of course, that means they can’t reach the masses so their business can’t grow. But there are some merchant account providers that don’t charge you anything to get set up for processing credit card payments. They don’t charge for the application, the equipment, the software, the set-up, or the technical assistance. And this doesn’t mean that the provider won’t have some of the lowest transaction fees in the industry.
You probably don’t want to wait a week or more for the money to appear in your bank account so we make sure that, you will normally see your money in your account within one to three days. This allows you the opportunity to grow your business, keep your cash flow moving and satisfy your customers.
