People are told that it’s very expensive to accept a credit card issued to a business and that’s just not the case. - Ben Dwyer, CardFellow Founder

Noting that there are no comprehensive guides to saving money when accepting commercial credit cards, leading credit card processing resource CardFellow has published a detailed article on the subject. The guide, available to businesses at no cost, explains the intricacies of commercial credit card acceptance and lays out steps for how to save.
Ben Dwyer, CardFellow’s founder and president, explains, “People are told that it’s very expensive to accept a credit card issued to a business and that’s just not the case. We’re offering this guide to provide business owners with the facts that will show them how to process commercial cards for about the same cost as a consumer card.”
As businesses contend with rising credit card processing fees, finding ways to lower those fees without sacrificing service is paramount. Dwyer explains that in the case of B2B payments, the savings comes in at the interchange or wholesale level, by providing what’s called enhanced data at the time of a transaction. “Credit card processing isn’t cheap, but if a business can take a simple step like providing enhanced data and end up saving 1% or more, it’s a no-brainer.”
Dwyer says there’s no magic to lowering costs. Rather, “You need to know what you’re looking at and how to optimize it. In the case of enhanced data, processors aren’t incentivized to help you set it up, because it doesn’t benefit them if you save money. This guide shows you everything they don’t take the time to explain.”
