There are many credit card processing companies that offer great packages for their merchant. However, few can compare to the new services and amazing customer service that Merchant Data Systems gives to their valued clients. The ability to accept credit cards is essential to running a business in today's society. Whether or not a company chooses to have old fashioned credit card terminals or they would rather have an entire POS integration is up to them. MDS simply offers the tools for a business to succeed and gives them lots of choices to do so. Golf Courses are one such business that can benefit from the new services of such a great merchant services company.
The putting greens are a great way to spend the day, soaking up sun and laughing with friends. Most people do not carry cash these days, for obvious reasons. Rather, they would choose to swipe their credit or debit card for all their needs. When MDS teamed up with Karma Snack, they expanded their abilities to service their customers. Karma Snack allows MDS to specifically target industries, like that of the Golf Course. Whether it is an online merchant or one who has a physical location, together Karma Snack and MDS can help to extend their services to accommodate both types of businesses.
Mobile credit card processing allows a business to accept credit cards in places they never thought before. Community events are a great way to get new memberships to a golf course. Unfortunately, many people will want to pay right then and there with a credit card. People are becoming more "plastic" friendly and that can create a problem for the businesses that prefer to do things the old fashioned way. Thanks to the ability to accept a mobile payment, they can effectively service their customers on their terms. By simply plugging a reader into a smartphone, a cellular phone becomes a credit card terminal. The funds are processed just like they would be with any other transaction.
Credit card machines are a common feature at most business establishments. Merchant processing is also important because it allows a company to accept the cards and have them deposited into an account of their choice. Because MDS has been in business since 1997, they have the years of experience behind them to show their dedication and quality of service. As a matter of fact, they have an outstanding customer service department that is open year round, 24 hours a day. What that means for the merchant is if there is a problem with their credit card terminals at 2 am, they can get the help they need. Located in Miami, Florida, they are on the Eastern Time Zone, but regardless of what time of day, they can service any customer, anywhere in the country.
Let's face it, most businesses have times when the cash flow is low. Rather than stressing about where the money is going to come from, why not opt for a merchant cash advance from MDS. Sounds strange but it’s true, MDS provides cash to their valued customers when they need it. Whether it’s for payroll solutions or for the need to fund a much needed expense, MDS is there for their merchants. FASTCASH is a program that will help merchants get cash when they need it. The amount that will be loaned will be dependent upon the amount of credit card transactions that are being processed. Using a formula based on average the loan will be payable from future transactions.
Wouldn't it be nice to take checks from members of the course? So many businesses have avoided accepting checks because of the fees and risk associated with returned checks. Taking electronic checks has never been easier. MDS will give each merchant a terminal, similar to the ones used for credit cards. These check readers will instantly look up the account and verify funds and the account standing. If the account is in good standing, it will come back with an approval code. If the check is not honorable, it will decline it and the customers will have to call to find out why their check was declined. The customer’s confidentiality is never breached, but the business remains protected. Each declined check saved the business a ton of money and stress. What this does for the business is ingenious. Being able to accept checks and also offering an additional method of payment to the customers only offers more options, which customers like.
Most businesses have an online presence. Customers can load their shopping cart with goodies and head over to the checkout process. MDS can help the company to not only succeed, but excel in e-commerce. Their well trained staff is ready to always help and offer tips and even design ideas for making invoicing solutions or any other online problem solvable. MDS is the merchant services program leader in the United States. They stand behind their merchants and give them the valuable tools they need to be successful.
