Technology for business changes quickly and Merchant Data Systems is on the very edge of those trends.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
The need for credit card processing is substantial, especially for Paint & Wallpaper Stores. People come in ready to remodel their homes and freshen it up with a coat of paint, and no one carries around large amounts of cash these days. Merchant Data Systems is offering new merchant processing services for those who need the ability to process credit cards. Since this is a cashless society for the most part, it is essential for stores to have credit card terminals and the ability to accept credit cards.
Since MDS is not just another processing company, they can offer their valued merchants way more than just credit card machines, they offer many services that others don’t. First, their availability is one of the main key factors when considering this company. They are open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. They NEVER close their offices. That means that on President’s Day when other businesses are taking a break, MDS still has operators manning the phones. So anyone who needs assistance in the middle of the day, night or on a weekend has the ability to get the help they need.
It is hard to ignore the benefits of mobile credit card processing. Being able to process credit cards from a remote location is the latest craze. The benefits are that anyone who has an Apple or Android phone, which has the ability to use HTML 5 can use these services. Mobile payment options allow a person to get paid for their paint and supply purchases, even when they don’t have accesses to credit card machines. For instance, if the phone lines are down in the store, a person with a smartphone and a mobile payment scanner can still run business as usual. This process is still safe and it allows the merchant to still have the funds added to the account of choice. Drew Freeman, President at Merchant Data Systems, mentions, "Technology for business changes quickly and Merchant Data Systems is on the very edge of those trends." There is never a need to say “the credit card machine is down.” With the new advances in technology, it is possible to give customers what they need, when they need it. Whether attending a fair, charity event or other happening around the city, a merchant still has the ability to take credit card payments.
The online merchant may see having a company like Merchant Data Systems behind them as a way to really excel in e-commerce. Because MDS has been in business for more than 15 years, they have ample experience in dealing with the online shopping cart and other features. They have helped many companies get their e-commerce off the ground and shown them the methods it takes to be successful online. In fact, most businesses are finding that they are doing more business online than they are on their stores. It is said that in the near future, storefronts may be a thing of the past and that companies will avoid excessive overhead and operate online only. Whether this happens or not remains to be seen, but having the online system in top shape is essential to a business functioning.
Another perk of dealing with MDS is their merchant cash advances. There is not one company in existence that has not had some type of financial problems at one time or another. Because these low times can happen to anyone at any time, it is important to have a plan of action. A merchant cash advance gives a company the funds they need to help them stay afloat. It can be an expensive repair that there is not money for in the budget or an unforeseen expensive that funds cannot cover. Similar to that of a regular cash advance, the income is figured on previous reporting sales. Anything that has been run through the credit card processing terminal can be used to figure the amount that can be loaned. The money can easily be paid back at a later date, using future credit card funds. Having the ability to get a loan without all the bank paperwork is a nice extra from using Merchant Data Systems.
Whether looking for payrolls solutions or invoicing solutions, Merchant Data Systems has what is needed. Providing merchant services is what they do and do well. They want to ensure that the business has everything they need to be successful. Not everyone starts out on top and MDS realizes that. They deal with companies who need POS Integration and who have yet to even set up a merchant account. Because they are their own underwriters, they have the ability to get a company set up with an account and have them ready to go in no time. This is why so many people use Merchant Data Systems for all their processing needs.
