The Top 5 Benefits of Merchant Processing For Your Business

Are you debating whether or not it's worth the effort to offer credit/debit card payments at your business by getting set up with a merchant account? Most who do so find it's more than worth it! Here are five reasons why — any one of which can justify the effort, but all five together should give you reason to seriously consider it.

  1. Accept credit and debit cards – The greatest benefit a merchant account can bring you is the ability to accept credit and debit cards. While this may seem obvious, it's now become the norm that your customers use the plastic in their wallets over cash and check, and it's important that you provide that payment option to them.
  2. Increase enrollment and sales – A study done by The 'Sloan School of Management at MIT found that customers spend more using credit cards instead of cash — as much as 100% more! Think how this increase could directly boost sales and overall growth of your business.
  3. Better money management – Accepting credit cards, and specifically moving to online payments, streamlines how you handle transactions. Instead of counting cash, chasing late payments, and dealing with deposits, electronic payments will keep you organized and allow for better cash flow management and budget forecasting. It also reduces or eliminates the problem of customers who build up large balances due to fluctuating personal income. They can now pay their full balance and go into a payment program with their credit card company instead of your business acting as their personal bank.
  4. Avoid bad checks – By using merchant account services and accepting electronic payments, your business can avoid the hassle and costs associated with bounced checks.
  5. Customer convenience – A merchant account can lead to happy (and returning) customers simply because it gives them the flexibility to make purchases in different ways. Whether it's with credit or debit cards, online payments or recurring billing, your customer can be at ease knowing the payment process is fast and easy.

Project Update: The New Customer Portal

We have started the initial round of beta testing with real ClassJuggler clients like you. Our goal is to get feedback on the user interface and user experience in order to polish any rough edges on the new customer portal.

And speak about simplifying things. With this new rollout, we will be officially renaming the system to the "Customer Portal", updated from the old name the "Customer Self-Service Center." While this isn't a big change, we feel that more customers (e.g. parents) will better understand the new simplified name.
