4 Things You Need to Consider When Choosing a Payment Partner

May 9, 2019 0 Comments

Your business relies on your ability to collect payments for the work you do. Sounds perfectly obvious, but when it comes down to the details of how you will accept payments for all of your future transactions, the importance of your decision on who to work with as a payment partner becomes crystal clear.

  • Will the partner you choose be able to handle your special and personalized circumstances?
  • Will they be able to help if there is an issue now, or years from now?
  • Can they adapt as your business hopefully grows to new heights in the future?

These questions can cause your business to suffer, simply because it delays the process of finding the right payment processor for you.

As a result, it’s a decision that has to be made quickly, but also has to be a smart choice – a balance that’s hard to reach.

To make a smart decision, keep the following attributes in mind when selecting your payment processor.

These are the characteristics you’ll want your chosen partner to have to effectively handle electronic transaction processing now, and for years and years to come.

1. Reliability

If you can’t accept payments, you can’t do business! So, be sure your payment partner has support readily available to help with any questions that arise.

2. Budgeting

A payment partner with integrity will tell you upfront what you can expect in terms of fees.

They will also help you avoid:

  • Hidden fees
  • Cancellation fees
  • Penalties
  • Small print items that can surprise you along the way

They will also have competitive rates that are fair for the market.

3. Experience

If you are launching a new business, or are aiming to grow in the future, it helps to work with a company that has both the personal and professional experience to assist you as your business booms.

You want a company that is inherently familiar with the potential growing pains that occur when you start to enjoy success.

This means they have:

  • Training materials
  • Merchant best practices
  • Resources to keep this success moving forward in the future

4. Personalized Service

Determining how you will accept payments is not a one-size-fits-all operation. Every single business has different needs and goals. With this in mind, it’s essential not to work with a one-size-fits-all-company.

Your payment partner should listen to your unique challenges and goals, and come up with individualized solutions based on your specific criteria.

This is how an optimal partnership is launched! Your payment partner understands your needs and can face future questions or new challenges based on this shared background.
