“Self-Driving” Gateway?

   |   By  |  0 Comments

Don’t you hate when you just finished a 5 minute monologue describing your issue to a customer service representative only to realize that you’re speaking to an automated robot representative?!

Some stuff does work better automated.

Like Level 2/3 data input on card transactions. 

Level 2/3 data refers to certain fields of information that, when provided in a transaction, can significantly lower the interchange rates on B2B transactions. We’re not talking small change.  The rates can drop anywhere from 0.65% up to 1.15% on each transaction! That’s a pretty penny right there.

Ahhh… you ask what’s the catch?  To be eligible for these great rate reductions, the merchant must provide additional information on each charge, such as SKU, product name, description, etc. (approximately 20 additional fields!) 

Now, savings are nice, but not at the steep price of manual labor.

Enter accept.blue. Our intelligent payment gateway will auto-fill the required information to qualify every B2B transaction for the lower interchange rates, without you lifting a finger.

Profit-conscious and lazy? We’ve got your back. Just hit reply to get started!

Do you have YOUR OWN gateway?

Professionalism. By having a gateway truly white labeled with your company’s name, logo, theme etc., you give your merchants the understanding that they are dealing with a processor that is a mile ahead. Your merchants will love that you are familiar with every aspect of the industry. 

They might not salute you the next time you meet them, but we’re betting they’ll be a bit more conscious of that coffee stain on their shirt.

Security.  This is how your merchants see it: If every aspect of their business is handled by you alone, that equals more security. You know how too many cooks spoil the stew, burn the broth, mess up the mousse (you get the gist). The less hands involved in their payments, the less systems involved in each transaction, the less possibilities for frustration.

Competition. Your merchants do not need to know how you run your side of the business. The less they know about the resources you rely on, the better. This way, they won’t be tempted to compare rates, features etc. with other ISO’s using the same systems and software. If the gateway they are using and enjoying is only available with you, they’ll think twice (actually, they’ll quit the whole thinking thing entirely) about entertaining a different ISO.

accept.blue is proud to offer full and free white labeling to its ISO’s, so get with the program and start playing the big leagues. Visit accept.blue and contact a rep yesterday (ok, today will do as well).

Once they switch it’s usually too late…

10:03am. Phone rings at the offices of Delayed Merchant Services, Inc. (ISO)…

ISO: (After a slight delay…) “Thank you for calling Delayed Merchant Services, how can we help you?”

Merchant: “I’d like to close my account with your company.”

ISO (a tad pale): “Can I ask what happened?”

Merchant: “Your service and rates were really good, but we switched to Ahead Merchant Services who provided us with a really neat online portal with a built-in invoicing system. Our staff really loves it… Sorry I can’t talk longer, I gotta take this call, thanks, good luck!”.
It’s not enough to offer great rates with stellar customer service. It’s not even enough to have great features – if you don’t put it in front of your merchants’ faces! Don’t wait for your merchants to ask. Make sure they see the full menu available to them at any time.

Merchants expect more than the ability to process payments. Tools and services which streamline, expedite and lower the cost of transactions are winning merchants over, and if you’re not actively offering them to your merchants, someone else will, and then… it’s mustard after lunch!

accept.blue is a fresh and modern payment gateway with the latest features any merchant can ask for. A robust Invoicing suite, Recurring Billing, clean and simple API’s and much more. What’s even better is that our pricing is one flat low fee – for “all you can eat”! Let them have it all!

So go ahead and answer that phone, you have nothing to fear.
