How to change your merchant services account:
Offering credit card processing as a business owner is critical to establishing a successful business. One of the questions that many business owners have is how to go about changing their credit card processing provider. The process of changing providers is fairly straight forward.
One of the first steps that you’ll want to take is to contact the new company to ask about their rates, fees and installation process for your own benefit. Once you choose your new service provider, be sure to cancel your old one. If equipment needs to be returned, a technician may be sent to retrieve specific hardware, POS system, and credit card terminals.
Once you have had all of the older equipment taken away, the new merchant services provider will properly equip you with the latest technology. A properly trained customer service agent will train you on how to use and troubleshoot your new equipment.
Don’t forget to lock in any current rates or discounts being offered by opening a new merchant services account. Review your new contract carefully to ensure all deals and rates were properly applied to your new account.
