Let’s get started with 1 of 10:  Excessive Merchant Fees

Abusive pricing practices run rampant in the merchant services industry—and—in many ways, software providers with integrated payments applications bear the brunt of the burden. This includes (but is by no means limited to) the use of excessive, aggressive pricing tactics where merchants are nickel and dimed for fees that even the merchant services providers themselves can’t explain.

Here are the signs your customers (and your business) are suffering from excessive merchant fees:

  • Customers express frustration and after reviewing monthly processing statements wonder why revenue is leaking from their business.
  • You’ve lost integrated payments revenue because hidden fees have caused customers to switch providers.
  • You’ve lost software customers to competitors because of your processing providers excessive pricing practices.

If any of this sounds familiar, it’s time to reevaluate your integrated payments partner.  Get ready to Experience the Difference.
