It will also give your customers another option of paying for your services. More choice equals more value. how to select the best credit card processing service So what does a Merchant Account do? It provides access for the seller and buyer to make a transaction. Banks in the past would set up the majority of Merchant Accounts, it has recently changed hands to private financial businesses that specialize in the setting up of a merchant account. Free Credit Card offers a free merchant terminal or software when you sign up for one year.

Credit Card Processing is the action of the processor receiving credit card data and transaction details from the customer. It then debits the amount of the sale from the customers credit card. It delivers the funds into your account. Here are the steps that occur:

» Your business creates a sale and then your Merchant Account provider is notified.

» The provider then sends in an authorization request to the credit card proccessor to verify that the card is not expired, stolen, or reported lost. Once this phase is complete you will recieve an authorization number.

» Once the information has been verified, it then checks the customers bank for the available funds and deposits the funds to your account.

» The final stage is the process in which you are deducted fees for the completion of the transaction. These are the fees associated with the account... i.e. 25 cent transaction fee. The funds are then directly deposited into your account.

This process usually takes between 2 to 3 business days, but may take longer due to the risk associated with the account. If your products and services are high risk then it could take longer. At the end of the month you will recieve a statement detailing the transactions and fees.

Three methods of accepting credit cards

» As you may know there are three ways of accepting credit card transactions. One of the popular methods you may be accustomed to is through a retail terminal or "swipe machine".
