Credit Card Payment Processing Made Easy

May 13
2 pm
Online Webinar
No Cost
Credit card sales have increased exponentially. Between a younger generation who does not carry cash and increased online sales due to COVID-19, not accepting credit cards is not an option. With the razor thin margins that many businesses have, choosing the right credit card processor is more important than ever.

Join Melissa Johnson, Payment Processing Strategist and Overall Processing Guru at Merchant Maverick, for a presentation about credit card acceptance issues. Melissa will discuss:
The difference between third-party payment processors (like Square and PayPal) and traditional merchant account providers
The various fee and pricing structures available, including tiered pricing and interchange-plus.
How to avoid hidden fees and bad contracts
What to look for in a reputable processor
