When it comes to keeping your small business afloat, investing in merchant services can often seem like a luxury. You might decide that the money would be better spent on additional inventory, for example. However, spending money on merchant services is an investment in your business’ future that can help you flourish in the long run. Here are some reasons why your business needs our help:
- Rough Economic Conditions
In this economy, consumers have less money to spend. This means businesses have to compete harder for customers. When you hire Merchant Advocate, you know that you will save money. Because Merchant Advocate negotiates with processors to get you the best possible rate, you will be able to keep more money from the credit card transaction you make. In these economic conditions, that extra revenue could be enough to give you the edge you need to stay ahead of the competition.
- Excessive Rates
Credit card companies generally try to get the most money out of retailers as possible. Instead of offering fair rates that are mutually beneficial, they set rates that allow them to extract the maximum possible revenue out of their clients. Unfortunately, because so many consumers rely on credit cards to make purchases, smaller businesses lack the leverage to negotiate for lower terms on their own. At Merchant Advocate, we have a thorough knowledge of how the credit card business works. We use and apply this knowledge in order to get you the best possible deal from your processor.
- Ensured Savings
At Merchant Advocate, our only job is to help you. We don’t even charge any upfront fees. First, we analyze your cost reports and find out how much you are paying per month to accept credit cards. Then we compare that figure to our benchmarks to determine whether you are paying too much. Only once we have secured savings for your business do we collect a fee. We are so committed to helping you protect your money from credit card companies that we will monitor your financial reports after negotiating a lower rate to make sure you continue to save.
If your small business is struggling, don’t be hesitant to seek out merchant services. We can help you save money and stay competitive in a rough economy. To learn more about what we do, call Merchant Advocate at (732) 727-2073.
