Every business that accepts credit card payments is expected to be PCI compliant.  Businesses that are not compliant can incur liabilities to card providers or face card company audits.

Our clients have told us many stories over the years about some of the sales pitches they have been given about credit card processing fees.  Some companies promise rates of 1% and even less.

Credit Card Processing Fees are Often Presented in Deceptive Ways

If you have shopped for credit card processing services for your brick and mortar ret...

There are more ways to accept a credit card now more than ever. For such a simple act - take payment, provide goods/services, receive payment in your bank account - there is actually a few layers of complexity to this routine task.

First, we need to consider, do you accept cards in person and/or not in person?

If you are actually seeing the credit card with your own two eyes at the point of sale - you are accepting cards in-person.  Part B to this equation - does the credit card have an EMV chip (or not) and/or does your customer prefer to pay with their phone - where they store their credit card information and/or ApplePay or...

Familiar with Cryptocurrency? This has been buzzing since the great Bitcoin spike (and fall) of 2017.

We've been talking about EMV for what feels like an eternity now. With a massive year-long effort to get all of our clients' set-up with EMV compliant equipment, we were very successful. Backing it up a bit - in 2015 consumers began receiving their chip cards and these cards set the groundwork for many industry related changes and benefits. Businesses needed to gain the capability to accept these new cards and without a very clear picture and/or a proven track record, the thought of updating their equipment and changing the way they have done business forever wasn't exactly met with a smile. However, we are pleased to be here tod...

It's National Employee Appreciation Day!

March 1 marks the official National Employee Appreciation Day. No matter if it's today, or random days during the course of the year, taking a little time to stop and acknowledge your team matters so much.  An interesting study was done by CareerBuilder that found 50% of employees would stay if they were tangibly recognized. It's an interesting statistic that we should dive a little deeper into.

What does "recognized" mean to your employees? Each person may have a different answer.  Perhaps someone just likes a verbal pat on the back, someone else may look for it in the form of a gift,...
