East Berlin, CT (PRWEB) February 10, 2009
Merchants wanting to collect multiple quotes to find the best merchant account now have a new resource to make the process more efficient--CardFellow.com. The innovative Web site provides businesses seeking credit card services with an array of free tools, valuable guidance and exceptional support to help them find the best merchant account for their specific needs. "CardFellow serves as every business owners' personal merchant account consultant by making the task of finding the best merchant account quick, easy and more secure," said Founder Ben Dwyer.
Using CardFellow to find the best merchant account is simple and easy. Here's how it works: Merchants answer a series of questions about their needs to open an account. Providers with suitable credit card services can contact merchants with a quote, or merchants can actively search the directory for providers. They can view each provider's profile including ratings and reviews and--if interested--request a quote.
Merchants negotiate rates and fees via CardFellow's Merchant Message Board, which records all communications. Either party can request mediation and other assistance from a CardFellow representative through the MMB. When a quote is accepted, CardFellow "locks" the selected quote so providers cannot change the agreed-upon rates and fees. Merchants work with the winning providers outside CardFellow to finalize their merchant account.
Businesses that use CardFellow will find a host of benefits to assist their quest for the best merchant account. They can search for potential providers in a variety of ways, view profiles of each provider, request quotes with a single click and complete a side-by-side comparison of different quotes. Moreover, merchants are able to work with providers under the supervision, support and assistance of a neutral third party. CardFellow monitors and records rates, fees and all communications, so they can be referenced at a later time to help settle misunderstandings. The Web site also offers a merchant account knowledgebase, support ticketing, online live help and email support to merchants while they are researching quotes. Representatives of CardFellow are also available to assist merchants and providers with the completion of the application process.
CardFellow provides a more feasible alternative to using a traditional lead generation service. Typically, lead generation services collect and distribute merchants' information to multiple vendors, leaving merchants with the daunting task of choosing a provider on their own. However, CardFellow delivers a comprehensive solution that saves merchants time, money and hassle. "CardFellow facilitates the sales process for both merchants and providers by taking ownership and oversight of the development of the business relationship," Dwyer said. "CardFellow is the first Web site to harness the total power of the Internet and apply it to credit card services industry to create an end-to-end, mutually-beneficial acquisition environment for both buyers and sellers."
