Credit Cards: Can't Live With 'Em; Can't Live Without 'Em; A High Level Overview for Businesses and Nonprofits - free webinar, Thursday, July 9, 2pm - 3pm.
This timely webinar on credit card best practices is available exclusively on venturneer.com. In today's electronic driven world, customers and donors want to, and expect to, make payments and donations to businesses and organizations quickly and easily by using credit and debit cards. Small businesses and nonprofits MUST be ready to accept plastic cards at any time, in any medium, by any method: face-to-face, email, fax, snail mail or online.
How do small businesses and nonprofits know if they are set up optimally for plastic cards? Are there special rates that they are not taking advantage of? How long should it take for the proceeds to arrive in your bank account? Should you let a third party operate your merchant account or should you have your own? These questions and more will be answered during this webinar.
Topics to be covered include:
- Card pricing criteria: debit/credit cards, card brand- and industry-specific pricing
- Processor and merchant responsibilities
- What happens in a transaction: soup-to-nuts
- Avoiding fraud and chargebacks
- E-commerce and online donation sites
Small businesses and nonprofits need to know what is standard and what is new in plastic cards to keep up and keep pace.
This webinar is ideal for:
- development directors
- finance staff
- business owners
- budding new businesses
- web designers
- anyone who wants to know more about this topic and be sure they have optimal pricing
Marc W. Halpert will be conducting this webinar. Since leaving corporate treasury eight years ago, he has started two companies offering specialized paperless electronic payment services to optimize cash flow and speed of collections to retailers, small- and medium-sized businesses (Your Best Interest LLC) and professional and membership groups, and not-for-profit organizations (e-giving).
Halpert told Ventureneer: "I am continually amazed at the level of misinformation at the grass-roots level about electronic payment techniques. There is so much opportunity and price variability in credit card acceptance. To adapt a quote from a large retailer, 'an educated nonprofit (or business manager) is our best client'- in this webinar you will receive the education and tools you need to save money and speed your cash flow." In today's challenging economic times, cash is certainly king and Halpert added: "Getting paid electronically will save administrative and banking expense if processed in an optimal manner." His webinar will provide insight into these fundamentals.
Marc Halpert has been recognized for client service and is a frequent speaker at national, regional and local conferences for small businesses and not-for-profits. He has also authored articles on innovations in cash flow technologies. He serves as Lead Instructor and Area Finance Chair at the University of Phoenix's Fairfield County on-ground campus, where he teaches finance, management, human geography and business ethics courses.
