Do you require a stand alone card terminal, virtual terminal or wish to set up an online e-commerce account?

Business Sense can help and advise on the best solution for your business

Did you know?

Taking payments over the phone and processing it through a standalone terminal? You’re charged a higher rate. This is called CNP (Customer Not Present). This can be as much as 0.05% on top of your standard charge for customer present transactions, and can have significant impacts on your monthly charges. Check the additional charges on your monthly statement (usually on the bottom under Card Not Present)

Are you aware of any hidden charges? Another factor to consider when choosing a merchant account are the charges for PCI DSS (payment card industry data security standards).

Are you PCI compliant? For the majority of merchant accounts, you’re required to complete an annual online PCI self-assessment. Otherwise, your acquiring bank will issue a PCI non-compliance fee (as much as £35 a month!) Business Sense advise on how to complete this and give due date reminders, to avoid any unnecessary fees.

Any questions? Call 01656 720999. We can advise on how to cut out these additional charges.
