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. Not familiar - Cryptocurrency is a digital currency built with cryptographic protocols that make transactions extremely secure.  It is a currency that is not controlled by any central authority, in fact, the decentralized way that cryptocurrency works allow everyone in the network to play a critical role in the transition of funds.

As a new(ish), tech-forward form of payment, we have taken a look to see how this currency will transition into the payment processing world.  Simply put - will all businesses eventually acc...

When a consumer can purchase a product or a service from a company - they are seeing the final visible end of a much longer road.  There is a process, steps & stages that a product or service must go through in order to be launched out into the world!

It starts with an idea. We generate lots of ideas every day, but finding the RIGHT idea - the most strategic and/or coveted idea is what we are looking to do in the idea generation stage.  Businesses come up with ideas based on a number of different factors: customers, competitors, industry trends, general needs in the market - and many more. The more ideas the better.  Not ever...

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...

There is a reason why the "🎉" emoji is one of our top used emojis internally here at PayHub Payments. The last month was full of some pretty amazing celebrations.

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,...

Your to-do list is long. Trust us, we can relate. Owning a business, and juggling the rest of life can be overwhelming at times. Most of us have multiple to-do lists. Time and time again we hear about work-life balance.  It's something that everyone tries to practice on a daily basis. It's easy to get caught up in prioritizing our time in being able to cross those to-do's right off the lists, rather than setting aside some time on how to prioritize our priorities better and simplify the daily grind.  

Here at PayHub Payments, we took the time to figure that out.  We set aside our to-do lists for a little while and...
