While most people may not think of elementary and secondary schools as needing to process credit cards, they would be wrong. Oftentimes, parents want to pay for school fees, yearbooks and other misc. items by credit cards. Since “plastic” is much safer for kids to transport than cash, it is often the payment of choice.
There are many options for elementary and secondary schools, as far as who to choose for their credit card processing company. Merchant Data Systems, out of Florida, is a great company which has expanded to offer new opportunities for elementary and secondary schools. This customer service oriented company helps other merchants to be successful in their business by offering their valued support. The decision to enhance their services and to offer companies what they needed, lead to a new joint adventure with Karma Snack which will bring about an array of new services for elementary and secondary schools.
For instance, companies who operate with e-commerce must have a shopping cart and an easy checkout for their shoppers. This online merchant will want to bring as much business using the website as possible. MDS can give assistance in setting up the website to be attractive to all those who use it. The most important things about the ability to accept credit cards is to make sure it is safe and secure. All transactions that MDS conducts are PCI compliant, which means they are safe for all parties.
Mobile credit card processing is another fascinating feature that MDS offers to its clients. Elementary & Secondary Schools that host events that take them away from the traditional credit card terminals may be interested in mobile payments. When there are no credit card machines around, these little devices can hook right into the top of any smartphone that can read HTML 5. The smartphone turns into a hotspot that can accept credit cards anywhere there is service. Everything processes just as it would before, and the funds are deposited into the checking account of the merchant’s choice.
Processing credit cards is a great way to collect revenues fast. But what if the revenues are just not flowing that month, what should a company do when they need extra money? Bank loans require a great deal of red tape and can be difficult to obtain. Thankfully, MDS has thought of all avenues to help their merchants, including those who may find themselves strapped for cash. FASTCASH is a program that is amazing and can provide businesses with the money they need when they need it. Anybody can go get a cash advance from a local vender, but what about a business, they have little options? Thankfully, MDS understands how companies can run short and offers this program. Getting the money a company needs when they need it just got a whole lot easier with a merchant cash advance from MDS.
Most people expect great merchant services and MDS does its part to deliver. Wouldn't it be great to be able to accept checks with little to no risk? It is possible with MDS and their check readers. Simply insert a check into the slot and wait for an approval code. The machine is verifying the check, the funds in the account and making sure it is okay to process. The funds are withdrawn electronically and put into the designated account. The check can be shredded or returned to the customer without problem.
From payroll solutions to general merchant processing, MDS does it all. Most companies hate to mess with payroll. Dealing with Uncle Sam and all the taxes can be a bit overwhelming at times. If an employee has deductions, it can make the entire process even more difficult. MDS has teamed up with 2 payroll giants in the United States to bring their customers the help they need. No more sitting in the office once a week calculating taxes and deductions. With these programs, all a company has to do is simply call in the hours and the rest is taken care of for them. MDS has a service center that is open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, there is always someone there when a company needs help or just has a few questions.
Companies interested in POS integration can integrate all the registers together. This allows the ability to pull a report on all the registers at once with no problem. This new wave of the future is saving business owners time and money. Having everything linked is not only smart, but it is essential. If the equipment in the business is old and outdated, MDS offers financing and leasing on new equipment tailored to the specific business. These new systems can be great for invoicing solutions, payroll reports and anything else one could think of.
MDS offers all the tools that a business needs to be successful and to process the revenues without issue. See why so many people are making the switch to this industry leader.
