A merchant account (often times referred to as merchant services) is an ongoing service that gives you the ability to accept payments for the goods or services you provide others with ease and simplicity. As simple as that answer may sound to you, the logistics that make a merchant account possible can be complex. The complexity generally arrives when you answer the following question… what kind of business are you?
The answer to that question is going to define two key aspects that shape the details of a merchant account designed for your business needs, what and how you deliver your goods or services.
The tricky thing about merchant accounts is they all perform the exact same function of allowing you to accept payments electronically, but how they do it is a topic for another day.
Regardless of what kind of business you are, the key things to remember is that a merchant account needs to provide you with the following:
- Simplify the income side of your book keeping
- Save you time, by reducing the amount of time you spend at the bank depositing checks and cash.
- Strengthen your position as a business owner in your local community
