How to Increase Revenue and Energize Enrollment

One of the BIG expenses we have as business owners is credit card processing fees.

No matter what business you are in, you can literally save thousands of dollars a year with very little effort or time!

I have found that checking this on a yearly basis can make a big difference to your bottom line. Best of all it is easy to do, will take very little of your time and can be switched in a matter of days. You will need to send the new company a copy of your processing statement and they will do the audit based on your current transactions.

Tips to remember:

  • Make sure the new fees you are being quoted is not a teaser fee for just a few months that will increase after that.
  • Once you find a great rate make sure that you are locked into that rate for long as you keep your account active and that you can switch out of at any time with no penalty or fee
  •  If you have reoccurring payments make sure that it will automatically transfer to the new processing company.
  • You can see who offers the best prices by doing a Google search for "best prices for credit card processing fees"

If you are looking to fast track this process I have already done the work for you. I am currently working with a company called Bank Associates Merchant Services that can offer you great rates that they will guarantee are the lowest in the industry. They will perform a FREE audit for you and give you specific details on how much you can save.

Below is an image of how much we will be saving each month and over the next year and three years.

WOW… I love the fact that we can save over four thousand dollars a year. This is found money that has taken ONLY thirty minutes of my time.
