Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) October 28, 2007
With many businesses banking on the holiday season to make a large percentage of their yearly sales, A1 Merchant Accounts is making it possible to take advantage of the retail possibilities. Online shopping is more popular than ever, and A1 Merchant Accounts is enabling businesses to get online and start accepting payments immediately.
In the last few years, holiday shopping has just continued to increase, and a large portion of that is online. During the 2005 holiday retail season, United States shoppers spent $30 billion online. In just one day during the holidays of 2006, U.S. consumers spent a total of $667 million. These Internet sales are only possible, however, for businesses that have functioning Web sites with merchant accounts and shopping carts.
While it is up to the business to make their product marketable and design the graphics and content of their Web site look and sound great, A1 Merchant Accounts will provide the most vital part of the online sales package. Businesses must have a merchant account before visitors can pay for their purchases with credit cards. It is unreasonable in today's society to expect consumers to send a check before they receive their purchase.
A1 Merchant Accounts is preparing to make more businesses ready to handle online sale during the 2007 holiday season. With the ability to process multiple product transactions in a shopping cart and to take payments using credit cards, businesses will be able to make the most of the biggest retail blitz of the year.
