Wanting to accept credit cards in your business? Please read this column before you decide on a credit card company to go with.
Credit card companies and banks can always setup any business to accept credit and debit cards, however beware of predatory credit card companies. Please do your research. There are companies like STRIP , SQUARE, PAY PAL etc. Your best bet is to stay far away from these three companies. Stripe, will lower you in with ease of acceptance, without asking you for much information on yourself or your business, however when you start to make money they will flag your account and will start asking you for documentation about yourself and your business. They will actually block you from accepting credits and debit cards if you cannot produce certain documentation and seize your money until you produce documentation. This company is very bad for small businesses. Stripe charges 3.70% plus 30 cents on a transaction that is almost $ 4.00 out of every $100.00 you make. This is what you call highway robbery in the credit card industry, Square, now Block duplicate the same practices as Stripe. This (Square) company comes out with flashy credit card processing machines. Do not let them fool you. PayPal, an EBY company is not a real credit card company it is what you call a wire service. PayPal will stop you from processing credit card on their platform but will eventually let you continue once you produce some documents about yourself and your business. Paypal, have phone numbers to contact them at anytime, unlike Stripe. All of this could be avoided if these companies would only vet you and your business up front before leading you on and then taking your money over something silly. If you are an accountant or a person who take payments online and you have three or more credit cards decline in one hour, Stripe will literally block you from doing business.
These companies are considered predatory. A real credit card company or bank will have you fill out and sign an application before you are able to accept credit or debit cards. There are companies like Englobe WorldPay, First Data now Fiserv, Global Payments, Capitol Bankcard etc. These companies will vet you before you can start accepting credit or debit cards from customers, which is normal. With these companies you are in good hands and your business would not be interrupted because of transaction amounts or declines. If there's an issue with a card transaction decline / approval which may prompt an internal security alert these companies would give you a phone call or send you an email. Unlike Stripe or Square who doesn't have a published phone numbers to speak with any one if you have a problem. Englobe WorldPay (www.englobeworldpay.com Tel. 800-642-9632 First Data ( www.Fiserve.com) Tel. 1800-228-0210 These tcompanies offer the latest in POS and credit card equipment also wireless systems. The fees charges by these companies are normally between 1.50% + 10 cents per transaction.
