It is the method of accepting card payments, whether in store, online or over the phone. There are a number of steps involved in card processing:
Not only does card processing encourage spending, it helps your business to grow. In the UK, more and more people are using debit and credit cards as their primary form of payment. People expect to be able to pay by card. So by accepting card payments, you keep your customers happy. Additionally, customers are more likely to impulse spend with card more than cash. And by holding less cash on your premises you improve the security of your business.Credit card processing could also improve your cashflow. Card payments usually clear more quickly than cheques, however, this depends on your merchant agreement. Card payments are processed electronically and usually paid into your bank within a couple days. This means no more billing and waiting to collect customer payment.
Businesses that process card payments pay merchant fees on each transaction. This can be split into two categories - percentage and flat rate.Card processing fees depend on a number of things, like the type of business you run, turnover and which card processing machine you want.
