Merchant account processing website

I have decided to review some websites as a filler to this blog i.e. When I don't write about investment, I will try to keep this blog updated frequently with such reviews. These reviews may be of interest to some of you.

Today I am reviewing a website that deals with merchant accounts It provides merchant account processing services to small and big merchants. If you don't know what a merchant account is used for, read it here.

The website accepts Visa/Mastercard processing and also accepts Credit Card Payments processing. Retailers who accept such cards from their customers are expected to have a merchant account. Without a merchant account, a retailer has to wait for weeks for invoice to come and more for the payment to clear. With such accounts it is a matter of days when payments get cleared. Merchant account are provided by banks as well as third party like the website being reviewed. Banks are very selective in opening such accounts, so third party solutions are the best option in that case.

As far as the website is considered, it is decent with every page having at least three links at various places to "Apply now" link. The navigation could be improved though. For example, there is a FAQs section, but it would take some serious effort to locate it. Similary, the help/tutorial/information section is difficult to reach from the main page. These two sections should be on the homepage. Sitemap is not the most obvious place to place those links, and many readers don't even click it.

Overall, it is a good website to go look out for more info on merchant accounts and to get in touch with a processor of such accounts.

since my business has started to process credit cards, my revenue has jumped almost 60%. i'm finding that once people find out that we now accept cards, they buy more things than they had originally planned on. i did a lot of research before deciding on a merchant account, and learned a lot. if you are trying to make a decision for your business, make sure you do your research.
