Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Today, variety stores face the challenge of accommodating different payment methods their customers use to purchase products or services. Cash on hand is not as common as it used to be in the past decade. People visit stores with credit or debit cards in their wallet and zero cash at hand. If a business cannot cater to this plastic form of purchase, they can lose a significant volume of customers and profit ergo the need for the latest merchant solutions available. And today, no one has a more comprehensive service suite than Merchant Data Systems, which has recently expanded their firm to accommodate variety stores with new top quality services.

Another reason to join MDS' growing community of merchants is to take advantage of their competitive rates. MDS provides a complete, competitive, and advanced ISO/MSP agent program that is specifically designed to guarantee customer satisfaction, low rates, and a long-term selling affiliation.
The company has even generated extra tools to guarantee continuous success and implement initiatives to improve client experience in processing all payment methods, such as American Express.

Can variety store owners benefit from affiliating with MDS? The answer is a resounding yes. With MDS' smart merchant processing, variety stores can accept credit cards via credit card terminals and credit card machines. MDS carries only high-tech processing equipment that's backed up by lifetime equipment warranties on all hardware options.
Apart from the ability to accept credit cards, MDS also helps clients and partners speed up transactions via online merchant services. Variety store owners who plan on taking their business to the next level by making their products and services available online can find MDS' e-commerce services well-suited for their needs including state-of-the-art shopping cart software and fast mobile payment processing.
Online merchants can choose from multiple MDS' gateways that allow them to accept credit cards and process electronic checks from their website and over a secure IP network. The gateway supports a more merchant-oriented experience as opposed to huge third-party gateways that are less secure and efficient. Merchants using their gateway can install plug-ins that are compatible to mobile payments or integration to items when required. The gateway structure is designed to make it effortless and more cost-efficient for merchants to process payments via the web.
Apart from the Internet, merchants can also accept payments through mobile phones. Mobile credit card processing is another effective way of reaching clients and maximizing profit since consumers today are often accompanied by their mobile phone wherever they go and whenever they go out. MDS works with ROAMpay to provide secure and fully compliant payment processing. There are no additional hardware required. With ROAMpay, merchants can use their present mobile phone and service plan. ROAMpay is made compatible for all major mobile phones.
