This week’s BLUE THING #2 featured solution is provided by GICBC™ member company Metro Merchant Services™, a premier provider of merchant payment processing solutions.

We respect your time…so here’s the…

Blue Bottom Line: (Why should I care? Why should I read on?)

  • You can learn how to re-vamp your expensive, outdated, poorly-supported payment processing system with something much better
  • You could reduce processing costs and increase sales

Metro Merchant Services™ specializes in processing payments for merchants while helping them operate better and keep more of their money by controlling their merchant processing costs. They are proud of their reputation as an innovator who consistently maintains the highest levels of security, customer service and client satisfaction. They have a rapidly growing client base, numerous attractive recurring revenue streams, and an impressive 96% retention rate.

Whether you commenced operations last week or you’re running a company that has been in existence for five generations, it is imperative that you make it as easy as possible for your customers or clients to pay you for your products or services. Whether you are a technology-driven e-commerce company operating in cyberspace, or a diversified organization with brick-and-mortar physical branch offices throughout the world with actual walk-in visitors, the driving principles are the same:
  • The easier you make it for a customer to make a payment, the more likely he or she will actually purchase and pay

  • The more methods by which you can accept payment, the greater your prospective customer base.

The challenges are also the same:
  • Most merchants, whether start-ups without any credit history or well-established, credit-rated companies are using payment processing solutions which may be ineffective, cumbersome, unreliable, inflexible and incompatible

  • Most systems are too expensive compared to the level of service provided.

The Metro Merchant Services™ payment processing solutions fully address the driving principles and challenges your emerging enterprise may face by:
  • Seamlessly, rapidly and economically capturing, collecting, and processing payments made in the form of credit cards, debit cards, PayPal exchanges, checks and bank transfers and converting them to real cash

  • Integrating your payment processing solution (e-shopping cart, button, point of sale….) into your administrative (issuing receipts and confirmations), logistics (delivery tracking), accounting and customer account relationship management systems.
