Today, when camera & photography supply stores need a way to process their customer’s payments, one company has all the tools necessary to accommodate them. Merchant Data Systems (MDS) has the experience and knowledge to assist camera and photography supply stores with any type of credit card processing as well as debit card or electronic check processing with their new and expanding services.
Doing business in today’s world requires every company to have the ability to accept credit cards whether in person, online or over a mobile electronic device.
Many companies have their retail location as the core of their business. Credit card terminals are essential for taking payments at retail locations, and MDS provides some of the best in the industry. The Verifone and Hypercom merchant terminals are some of the finest available in the industry and when provided by MDS, these credit card machines can come with lifetime warranty.
MDS also supports POS Integration from such major companies as IcVerify, Verifone, Micros and Aloha. They are designed to offer merchants a variety of POS options to meet their individual needs.
Another important aspect of doing business today is e-commerce or the ability to sell goods and services over the internet from a website. In order to do this effectively, a merchant has to utilize shopping cart technology. This provides visitors to a company’s website an ability to put items in a virtual shopping cart. MDS provides merchants with the latest type of this technology available. Drew Freeman, President at Merchant Data Systems, mentions, "Merchant Data Systems, from inception through present day, has focused on staying at the cutting edge of technology. That mission has never and will never change."
Merchant processing with MDS provides a gateway that makes it possible for a merchant to take customer payments at their website as well as through an Internet Protocol (IP) connection. An online merchant account with MDS is the best way a company can obtain all the benefits of doing business on the web.
The ability to take a payment at any location is an important aspect of doing business in today's world. Mobile credit card processing offered by MDS makes this a reality for any merchant.
The program is called ROAMpay and provides merchants with the ability to take payments with a cell phone, smartphone or any mobile device. It is mobile payment processing technology that has been designed to work well with all major carriers.
There is never any worry about security when it comes to customer information. ROAMpay meets all the high standards set forth by Payment Card Industry (PCI); ROAMpay is PCI certified. Not only are all the transactions with ROAMpay guaranteed to be processed accurately, they’ll also be processed securely. All customer payment information is completely encrypted prior to leaving any cell phone or electronic device. None of a customer’s payment information is left on any of the electronic devices used for the transaction.
When a merchant decides to use ROAMpay, there is no need for them to purchase additional hardware. If a merchant has a cell phone without a data plan, they can just use the pay-as-you go for data usage. When this is done it translates into each ROAMpay transaction costing only pennies.
MDS is dedicated to helping companies succeed, and the merchant services it offers is not limited to just credit card processing. MDS can also provide a company with payroll solutions to meet any need. A merchant who uses the payroll program provided by MDS can be confident their payroll will be processed accurately and is in accordance with all governmental laws and regulations. All necessary employee compensation confidentiality is maintained. This program from MDS also enables merchants to offer their employees such things as life, health and disability insurance as well as IRA plans.
Another important aspect of doing business is the ability to properly invoice customers. MDS provides merchants with invoicing solutions designed to meet their needs. It is important to be able to track incoming payments and take appropriate action when necessary. The invoicing program at MDS has been designed to make the invoicing process a fast and efficient aspect of doing business.
There may come a time when a business has a bit of a struggle with their cash flow. MDS offers a program to assist merchants who face such a dilemma. It’s called Money for Merchants and provides a merchant cash advance to companies that can easily repay it from anticipated credit card receipts. Companies are able to use this money for payroll, purchase inventory, pay taxes, advertising programs and more.
If a new business is struggling a bit financially, they can also obtain money from MDS with the program called FASTCASH. The amount of funds that can be obtained is based on a new company’s projected sales.
