The decision to accept credit cards at your business is a major step toward generating greater revenue and improving customer satisfaction. It involves several important choices that can make or break your credit card processing experience. One of them is selecting your merchant services provider.

It might seem easy to just go with your bank or whoever promises you the best rate, but the truth is that banks don’t do credit card processing (they simply outsource it to their preferred payment processing company) and low rates may only be low temporarily. For best results, always look for top credit card processing companies that offer:


Payment processing has many moving parts that require any number of features, depending on the individual needs of your business. That’s why in this industry, like no other, you should seek out honest and transparent merchant services providers that will put you in the best position possible. It’s best to start your search online and look for high reviews from reputable sites like Google Reviews and the Better Business Bureau.


When it comes to payment processing, your money and your customers’ card data are at stake. Don’t risk exposing either of them to scammers — find a company that provides the latest security.
