What to do when your overpriced merchant services don’t deliver

Nov 24th 2015 at 8:39 PM

It’s ironic, in the days of everyone doing high-speed business around the world, that businesses are still lumbered with antiquated merchant services and time-consuming, infuriatingly unproductive, bureaucratic issues. It may be as simple as technology not working, a terminal which has its own ideas about whether or not to process payments, or something equally annoying, but the bottom line is that the merchant services are not delivering.

Almost incredibly, it’s not at all uncommon for something as basic as credit card processing to be an ongoing problem for retailers, for example. This situation is nothing short of absurd. It’s also expensive. If you consider the amount of extra work that manual credit card processing involves, you can actually put a dollar value on it.

Grotesquely, this seemingly easy to fix issue is still a major issue for retailers around the world. This is what happens if your merchant service provider doesn’t stay up to date, or decides to stay cheap and nasty while rest of the world is using better technology.

Now the other, understated issue – How do you get out of a merchant services contract? It is sadly true that the little guys don’t really have much clout when it comes to dealing with major financial institutions, for example.

The short answer – Get a new merchant services account. Sign up with a better merchant service provider and minimize your costs that way. Let the old contract run out, and simply don’t use that service any more. Use the new, better merchant service account instead. Unless you’re under an obligation to use the old merchant service, you can save money that way pretty easily. (Don’t guess about this – Make sure that you are not in breach of an existing contract.)
