4 Reasons Why Customer Support Is Crucial When It Comes to Payments

May 9, 2019 0 Comments

The success of your business is dependent on your ability to accept payments of all forms. And in a world that increasingly relies on paperless and plastic transactions, having the right company to handle your electronic payments is more important than ever.

And when it comes to selecting a payment partner, new business start-ups and established companies looking for a change will both quickly realize there are options.

The importance of choosing the right payment partner for your company cannot be understated. When it comes to making your decision, there are several significant considerations to keep in mind:

  • Cost
  • Options
  • Experience

All of these considerations come into play, but so does the level and availability of support both now, and in the years to come.

So why should you make stellar customer support a priority when selecting your payment provider? It all boils down to the following scenarios that can affect your bottom line.

1. A Successful Launch

For your business to be successful, you need to understand your payment system from day one, but you also need a full accounting of what you can expect in terms of fees to run your operation.

This is why Alliance Bancard Systems never includes hidden fees in our fine print. You will know exactly what costs you can expect to manage your budget for the long haul.

Also, with timely assistance through every step of the set-up process, (and surprisingly fast turnaround time), you’ll understand all the aspects of how your payment operations work from the very beginning.

2. Employee Mistakes

All employees can make an error from time to time, and if this happens with regularity – and without anyone noticing – it can impact your income.

This is why we have resources, support, and educational tools readily available for your employees, and can also provide detailed reporting for your managers and your sales team.

This way, you can continually:

  • Review your numbers
  • Verify your processing and funding operations
  • Ensure all of your team members are on the same page

3. Customer Concerns

  • What happens if there’s a dispute on an account?
  • What happens if a customer tries to rescind a payment they made?
  • How will you know when this occurs, and what steps you need to take next?

Payment disputes happen in all types of businesses, and they can catch a company off-guard in terms of time and money.

This is why smart payment providers, like Alliance Bancard:

  • Provide automated email alerts to notify you of any issues
  • Make outbound calls to ensure you don’t miss or lose any cases
  • Has online chargeback reporting tools readily available

These scenarios can be tough to tackle, but they don’t have to be if you have the right payment partner.

4. Emergency Situations of All Varieties

You never know what the future can bring, and you want a partner that is readily available to assist no matter the scenario.

From natural disasters like power outages, fires, or physical damage to your business, to unique situations where traditional payment solutions do not apply, we are here to help.
