Choosing the Right Payment Processor
Many online business owners are considering the benefits of accepting credit cards as payment for goods and services sold. If your business has a website, you may be wondering if it is cost effective to add merchant account services. The answer is yes, but you need to do your homework to be certain that the process will work for your business and that you will get all of the benefits associated with accepting credit cards.
What Will Using A Payment Processor Cost??
The cost is low. You can accept credit cards for free using a third party merchant account. And if your business has a website, you can accept credit cards for $0.99 per transaction. However, if you use a third party merchant account, you will need to open an account with that provider. And if your business has a website, you will need to develop a way to accept payments from online, as well as traditional, customers. You will need to upgrade your systems to accept online payments, and you will have to monitor and adjust as necessary. But you may end up paying more for your third party merchant account than you would for your business to accept online payments directly.

Benefits of accepting credit cards for your business
* You can accept all of the major credit cards in the US and Canada. This includes Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB. You won’t have the restrictions of accepting MasterCard through a personal merchant account.
* It is quick and easy to apply for a merchant account. You can get approved in 15 minutes if your credit score is over 750. It takes a few days if your credit score is lower. Once you have an account, you can accept payments from almost anywhere in the world.
You can accept payments in several ways:
* Charge an hourly rate. This is a great option for businesses that are set up to receive invoices. You won’t have to worry about billing cycles. You can use a “recurring” payment method, which means you pay the account fees once per billing cycle. This is great for businesses that have recurring invoices.
* Accept multiple currencies. This is great if your customers speak a different language. You can accept all the major world currencies: Euro, USD, GBP, and JPY.
* Accept bank transfers. This is a great option for customers who prefer to pay by bank transfer.
* Be a third party payment processor. You can also be a third party payment processor and receive funds for PayPal funds transfer.
It is important to choose the best payment processor for your business. The merchant account option is more convenient for your customers but it can cost more for your business as well. Look at your operations, customer base, and finances to choose the most suitable option for your company.
