Some companies have employees, and yet don’t have the ability to hire someone to take care of their payroll or provide invoicing solutions. MDS offers its customers a program called Merchant Payroll, which provides payroll solutions to any size merchant and also invoicing solutions for companies with a small staff. With this service they can be certain their payroll is handled effectively and securely. It is designed so MDS customers can focus on other important aspects of their business knowing their payroll is being processed on time and all confidentiality maintained. MDS customers who use Merchant Payroll can also offer their workers such insurances products as life and health insurance, IRA plans and more.
In the world of today every merchant must be able to accept credit cards or debit cards for payment from customers. MDS is able to meet every unique merchant needs when it comes to credit card processing. Any business with a need to process payments for mail order or telephone orders knows that MDS provides the most up-to-date online merchant electronic payment processing technology. Today most businesses have an e-commerce component to their sales program. MDS has the tools to help merchants with everything from web design and hosting to credit card authorization and settlement.
Merchants may also need to process checks taken for payment. MDS is able to process checks as easily as credit card transactions. A paper check is turned into an electronic transaction when the sale is made, and the information goes through an Automated Clearinghouse. In seconds the merchant’s account is credited and the customer’s account is debited. This service is also available for brick & mortar businesses as well as for e-commerce, telephone and mail orders.
In these difficult economic times MDS can help merchants accept Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards and also debit cards. The benefits of these types of transactions are that there is a flat fee per transaction, no chargebacks; cash back feature for customers and more.
Many companies and even news stands are always looking for a way to take payment as quickly as possible. MDS offers its customers the ability to turn their cell phones into a payment processing center with mobile credit card processing. Their ROAM pay service is Payment Card Industry (PCI) certified, which means merchants can be confident their mobile payment transactions will be processed properly. There is no customer personal data left on the cell phone and all the information is encrypted prior to it leaving the cell phone.
When it comes to communication solutions, MDS provides merchants with the ability to process payments over wireless networks. This is a valuable asset when doing business at a non-traditional location. Those merchants who use dial up or other traditional ways of processing credit card payments can also be accommodated by MDS.
MDS offers its customers the latest version of credit card terminals and credit card machines to be used with Point of Sale (POS) transactions such as the Verifone merchant terminal and Hypercom merchant terminal. Their POS Integration is done with companies such as IcVerify, Micros and any other third party POS provider.
All aspects of merchant processing it handled through their two gateways. Merchant Data Gateway enables merchants to take credit card and electronic checks via their Web site and on an Internet Protocol (IP) connection. First Data Global Gateway is internet based and once a merchant logs in they can begin to take payments. MDS is able to provide its customers an online shopping cart system that is connected to their POS integration.
Every company may run into trouble from time to time. When this unfortunate event occurs MDS is there to help with a merchant cash advance program they call Money for Merchants. This cash advance can easily be paid with future payments made by credit card. It’s an easy way for merchants to not worry about meeting payroll, paying taxes or even obtaining additional supplies and more.
