I see there is alot of talk on credit card acceptance and some confusion as there are so many options out there. As some of you know I am the sales and marketing manager at a decent sized general contracting company. On another note I own a small merchant services company with a partner that specializes in credit card processing, check services, Gift cards, and Loyalty programs. I actually started this business to be able to better understand the industry to save myself some money and since has grown quite a bit. My partner has about 12 years experience in the business myself a couple. This is not a solicitation what so ever. You may or may not know but all credit card service companies buy from visa and mastercard at the same rate for the most part, it is just how much they mark it up in between from rates to fees. I would be more than willing to answer any questions anyone has in regards to credit card processing for their business.
