If you are able to receive payments for your goods and services via a credit card, then you are going to need credit card processing services. Finding the right provider for these services is crucial to your company’s success, especially in its early stages.
Understanding the process is key. There are two main stages that take place during the credit card processing period. These include the initial phase called “authorization”. This is where the funds are approved to be taken off of the customer’s credit card. It makes sure that the credit card is valid and that the funds can be successfully transferred.
The second part of the process then involves “settlement”. This is where the funds are moved from the bank of the credit card holder to the merchant account associated with your business.
Moving this process along requires the help of a special provider. Finding the right provider can be especially important in terms of speed, customer service, and most importantly charges for your company. Financial Guardian is familiar with these providers and is able to help your company set up these necessary services.
It is important to consider the costs and fees from these services versus the support and quality of service they deliver. Costly mistakes are certainly unwanted.
