Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 22, 2013
Bluefin Payment Systems, a leading provider of secure payment processing, has introduced their Small Merchant Approval Program (SMAP) for U.S.-based companies processing $1,000 or less in customer transactions per month.
The unique features of the Program include instant approval, which means merchants can begin accepting payments from their customers immediately; low rates, with only a $9 monthly minimum; and the highest level of security from Bluefin’s payment gateway.
The Program will fulfill a growing market need for account options specifically customized to smaller merchants.
“The payments landscape is evolving. Companies of all size must have the ability to accept electronic payments, even the smallest enterprises,” said John M. Perry, CEO of Bluefin Payment Systems. “SMAP caters exclusively to companies with $1,000 and under in customer transactions per month, giving them the benefit of low rates and the ability to begin transacting right away.”
Bluefin Payment Systems works with integrated software vendors (ISVs) and software as a service (SaaS) companies in a variety of industries to integrate their payment gateway into the software platforms, or offerings, creating an all-in-one solution for vendors’ clients. Bluefin was ranked as the 6th fastest growing private company in the U.S. by Inc. Magazine in 2012, and today serves over 15,000 U.S. and Canadian merchants.
“Many of our ISVs have companies in their portfolio that are just starting their own business,” said Perry. “SMAP helps us offer our partners even more value by specializing in account programs based on merchant size.”
The Bluefin gateway offers merchants debit/credit/ACH acceptance, plus recurring billing, a virtual terminal and a hosted payment page – all with security features, including tokenization and end-to-end encryption.
