Get a Rate Review
As part of our on-going effort to help our customers save money, we'd like to suggest that everyone contact their merchant services provider and ask for a Rate Review. Market conditions and your processing patterns might have changed since your last review and it's possible that you could be eligible for lower rates. Changes in average transaction amounts, total sales volume, different mix of card types, etc. can affect your costs. Most businesses need to initiate rate reviews as processors, like insurance companies, are not motivated to review customer accounts by themselves.
Make Sure You Are Getting the Best Rates
We recommend annual rate reviews with all processing partners. If your current processor is unable to give you a review or you would like a competitive rate review from a RetailEdge processing partner, please contact Michelle Greenfield or Lisa Ford (see contact information below). PPI and MPS offer aggressive rates that should save you money. In addition, by accepting debit cards with RetailEdge and PPI or MPS, you can save even more.
When comparing rates, don't be fooled by promises that sound too good to be true. Comparing rate plans is like comparing apples and oranges. It's difficult and it takes effort. Beware of bait and switch tactics like seemingly low discount rates. Processing companies often make up lower rate structures with expensive extras like statement fees, high per transaction charges, rate surcharges, etc.
