March Madness is upon us. Right now millions of people are rooting for their favorite college teams while chasing the dream of a perfect bracket, the odds of which, according to Forbes, are 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808. As you witness the triumph of victory and the agony of defeat on basketball courts across the country, payment processing may not be the first analogy that comes to mind. However, there are a few interesting lessons you can take away for your business.
Don’t Underestimate the Underdog
Upsets happen, and being a top team doesn’t mean you can consistently deliver the best results. When it comes to payment processing, many merchants overlook smaller companies that frequently offer a more personable service than larger ones can. A 24/7 in-house customer support, for example, can prove to be invaluable to your business, so don’t make the size or prominence of the organization the deciding factor alone.
Transparency Goes a Long Way
This year several teams were left out of the tournament due to their involvement in illegal activities. Despite being good enough to qualify, they lacked transparency in their approach. Transparency matters a lot in payment processing, since it’s your money that’s at stake. Always seek out a merchant services provider that offers transparency, from helping you understand your statement to placing you in the right pricing structure.
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
Ever witnessed a team on path to a sure loss that suddenly came together at halftime and made an impressive comeback? That’s teamwork, and it matters in payment processing too. At Transnational Payments it’s one of the things we take pride it. Whether you are looking for a place that will support your credit card processing or help you achieve your career goals, TransNational Payments is the winning team for you.
