Cut Costs on Credit Card Processing

Monday May 11, 2009 | Filed under: Education, Guest Blog, Industry Initiatives, Member Benefits

Do you know what you are paying in credit card processing fees for your customer orders? 

I can tell you most distributors, suppliers and decorators significantly underestimate the rate they are paying associated with accepting credit cards.

Your monthly merchant account statement will have a rate posted on the front page.  However, hidden additional fees are typically on the back pages.  Hidden fees can be confusing and may not even be posted as a percentage.  When you add the posted rate and the hidden fees, the effective rate can very easily double and even triple.

The ASI Merchant Account Program, provided by Access Group, can help you understand your current costs by providing a FREE, no-obligation savings comparison that will identify your current rate and all of the additional hidden fees.

The program typically saves members on average 30%, and can be as much as 50%.  That's a potential new savings of $100 - $1,000 per month for most companies.
