City of Industry, CA (PRWEB) July 03, 2012
US Bankcard Services, Inc. (USBSI) launches a new Facebook series “Best Practices for Merchants.” This series will feature tips and insights derived from USBSI’s more than fifteen years of experience at the top of the payment processing industry. It aims to give both its loyal merchants and those interested in accepting credit cards pointers in how to best navigate the world of credit card processing.
Each installment of the “Best Practices for Merchants” series will cover a specific topic that will illuminate how payment processing works, and merchants can request a call from USBSI if they have additional questions. A better understanding of the credit card industry will allow merchants to save money, make more money, and avoid potentially costly mistakes.
The first installment of the series, called “Managing Your Processing Cost,” gives merchants seven useful tips for minimizing their processing costs. One piece of crucial advice is to always swipe customer cards whenever possible, because swiped cards clear at lower rates, thus saving merchants money. It also advises merchants not to skip prompts by the terminal, and gently reminds merchants to send settlements on time.
While USBSI’s customer service and technical support teams make sure USBSI’s merchants know these 7 tips (and more) by heart, many new business owners who are accepting credit cards for the first time might not. USBSI hopes that its series will reach the Facebook community at large and help new merchants just joining the credit card industry or small business owners who need a refresher course. “Best Practices for Merchants” is just the newest example of USBSI’s commitment to helping small businesses, and local communities, grow.
