When is the right time to switch payment processors?
Is now the right time to switch your credit card processing provider?
Cash or credit? Statistically, most would say credit.
In fact, 80% of consumers prefer spending with a card over cash. Specifically, the breakdown is 54% who prefer spending with debit cards and 26% who prefer spending with credit cards. Point being, accepting card payments is a fundamental of business.
Accepting card payments is a necessity. Paying for credit card processing is a cost of doing business.
It’s easy to become frustrated with the fees of a merchant account. It’s just as easy to feel tied down to a provider.
You want to walk away. But you can’t. You need to accept card payments. You don’t have the bandwidth to make a switch. Plus, you signed a lengthy contract that doesn’t expire for … a while.

We’re not great at keeping secrets. So, here’s the truth: You have options.
As a payment processor provider ourselves, we know the ins and outs of the industry. We not only know what the competition is doing. We also know that you deserve better.
Woah, slow down! Do the words payment processor have you heading for the hills?
Hang with us. We’re not like the others. We don’t try to be.

But, that’s just us. Many other providers take advantage of their merchants.
You deserve better. Here are five signs you should switch your payment processor.
