Tuesday, March 21 2023

If you are a business owner, you know that the best solutions are those that are custom-tailored to fit your needs. There are dozens, if not hundreds of providers out there that can provide you with merchant services, but very few that can actually provide a customized solution using tried and true methods to help your business succeed and make payment processing a breeze. If you’re looking for the ideal partner for merchant services and know that there’s a better option out there than the other cookie-cutter merchant services products on the market, then work with us and our team of specialized merchant account providers that can finally provide you with the solution you’ve been looking for. 

Why is it important to have specialized services?

Any business owner knows that there is a clear difference between a product designed for anyone and a product designed specifically with the needs of your business in mind. However, does the same always apply to merchant services? In our experience, yes it does! It’s so important to work with a merchant services provider that truly understands your needs and provides you with solutions to meet those needs because your business depends on your ability to function efficiently and effectively while also expanding the benefits that you’re able to provide your customers. 

We’ve been doing both of those things for years and working with automotive professionals every step of the way to ensure our service selection is made to tailor the automotive industry’s needs. WIth our specialized services, you’ll be able to be at the forefront of your industry and gain a competitive edge in local markets with our services that put the power back in your hands. 

What are the benefits of our automotive industry merchant services?

If you are looking for a reliable merchant services partner to use for your automotive business, then you’ve come to the right place. Our comprehensive suite of services and solutions will provide you with exactly what you need to take control of your credit card processing and give you the benefits you need to thrive in a competitive economy. Here are some of the benefits that you can enjoy when you choose our merchant processing services that are specifically designed to help your business succeed. 

Accept a wide range of payment methods

One of the main benefits of our merchant processing program is that you will be able to broaden your customer base by accepting a wide range of payment methods. From credit cards to online wallets, we can accommodate your business and provide maximum convenience to your customers. With more payment methods comes happier customers, and with happier customers your business will be in a great position to succeed. 

B2B solutions made easy

Our processing solutions are not just designed to help you interact with customers--but businesses too. If you have large business clients that your current payment provider is just not helping you meet the needs of, then our processing services are right for you. Our processing services are designed to help you accommodate any client, large or small. 

Online processing offered for scheduling convenience

All business owners are aware of the reality that the industry now exists in. Convenience is king, and that is why you need to have an online presence, booking platform, and payments portal. We can help to accommodate your online presence with a payments solution that is suitable for deployment on your website or other online property. 

Mobile and versatile payment solutions

If you value versatility, then our solutions are well-equipped to meet your needs. Whether you want to take a payment in the lobby of your business or out in the shop area, we can provide you with a mobile payments solution that makes your business versatile, easy to operate, and more equipped to deal with the desires of your customers. We’re ready to help you find a payments solution that is easily deployed in a variety of areas. 

Automatic recurring payments and financing options

Recurring payments and financing options are both things that automotive professionals deal with on a regular basis. Many processing solutions do not offer convenient options for these business deals, but we do. Our payment solutions are designed to equip your business with the resources that it needs to properly facilitate these arrangements and serve your customers in the best way possible. Through a robust set of recurring payment settings and payment options for financed purchases, we are the most financing-friendly processor on the market.

Fraud and chargeback prevention

Fraud and chargebacks can be one of the most damaging things to happen to automotive businesses. When fraud and chargeback occur, it basically means that you have given away the goods and services that were rendered in exchange for the reversed payment. Many merchants don’t have the tools they need to fight these claims and fight for the money that they are rightfully owed. However, when you work with us for your merchant services, we provide you with the tools that you need to regain your margin. 

Extended warranty upsell options

With the right upsell options, your business can greatly increase its margin on each purchase and create an additional stream of reliable revenue. We believe in providing our partners with the maximum range of tools that we can and making it easy to achieve more in their industry. That is why we offer one of the most robust upsell interfaces in the industry to help you optimize cash flow and build more revenue for your business. 

Integration support for maximum functionality

If you have purchased a processing solution in the past,  you know the struggle of lack of integration options. As a business owner, you want all of your technology and systems to flow together easily to provide you with organization and ease of use. Unfortunately, other providers don’t often offer robust integration functionality. However, we do. We have always had one of the most versatile payments processing platforms in the industry and we can provide your business with a payments solution that integrates with the other technology found in your business.
