Customer Education – Concise Lesson on Rates

There are three major areas to understand:  interchange rates, assessments fees, and processor costs.

Interchange Rates are a percentage of the volume for each credit card transaction.

Assessment Fees are a flat transaction fee added to each transaction. For example, fees that are associated with Visa/MasterCard and so forth.

Processor Costs. These are the fees that credit card processors charge for their services.

Are any of these fees negotiable?  Interchange rates and Assessment Fees are non-negotiable.  These fees are set by the Issuing Banks which are the banks that issued the card to the customer.  These rates and fees are the same for all businesses.  If the business is in Florida, Michigan, or California, they pay the same rates and fees.  It does not matter which processor (merchant account provider) the merchant chooses; these rates are the same.

What are the variable costs in all of this?  The variable costs are the Processor Costs.  These costs vary from provider to provider.

Do you want to know more about this?  Please give Payline Data call.  It is their commitment to educating their merchants so they can be empowered to make the right decision for their business needs.

Customer Education – PCI Compliance

The purpose of Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance rules is to make sure that merchants do not keep credit card numbers.  The whole point of this is to prevent the theft of credit card numbers.  New merchants using credit card payments should learn all they can about this because they want to avoid complaints that are hurtful to their customers and to their own business reputation.  Customers considering Payline Data should telephone customer service to learn what they need to know about PCI Compliance.  It can be a bit complicated but the customer service people at Payline can demystify it.

 I can honestly use the term “excellent” with regard to your business because you have greatly exceeded my expectations with your professionalism and integrity.

 Payline is all that they say… The switch of our machine and addition of an online gateway was simple and easy; we are saving on fees, and they give a portion of their fees to a charity of our choice.

 Thanks for the assistance with regard to the issue that I contacted you about. I would like to take an opportunity to provide appreciation for your business (Payline Data). Payline is the third electronic payment company that we have dealt with as a business and is by far superior to the other two entities …

 I thought it was time I dropped you a line just to say “thank you.” We’ve been with you guys long enough for me to feel good about the decision!  We’re saving money, and everything’s been smooth sailing. Thanks for working with me all those months ago to earn our trust.

 The service that Payline offers is excellent and they have the cheapest rates around. The Payline Giving program isn’t offered by anyone else, and it’s great to see a company who cares about giving back to charitable organizations. It was a no brainer for my business to switch to Payline. Talk to Payline today and ask about switching your business to too.

 Payline was able to significantly reduce my costs. My company saves over 40% each month on our credit card fees. We also have been able to integrate with Quick Books very easily and it is not any more work than it was before. Plus I actually get paid a lot faster now than I did with Intuit Quickbooks. I highly recommend that others look at what Payline Data is doing and give them a chance like I did. They won’t regret it.

 Payline is all that they say… The switch of our machine and addition of an online gateway was simple and easy; we are saving in processing fees, and they give a portion of their fees to a charity of our choice. …Remarkable.

Thank you, Payline.

 As business owners, the solutions offered by the Payline Data team has far exceeded our expectations. Previous companies we have used for credit card processing provided very poor customer service. Switching our service to Payline was easy. When we have had questions, the customer support has been friendly and helpful. We would also recommend their credit card processing services to any other company.
