5 Little-Known Facts About Credit Card Processing That Therabill Users SHOULD  Know

Posted on Fri, Feb 24 2017 @ 03:36 PM

If your therapy practice accepts credit cards, you may think you already know everything that you need to know. But here are 5 extremely important facts that you may not be aware of. Being armed with this information will save your practice money and improve your bottom line.

therabill1-1.jpg

5 Little-Known Facts About Credit Card Processing That Could be Costing Your Practice More Than It Should Be Paying

1.  Credit card processing fees are tax deductible and it's typically a sizable deduction for businesses that accept cards. As tax season approaches, don't forget to take this deduction!

2. Using your local bank does not save you money on credit card processing. Most local banks outsource credit card processing services to third party sales teams who work for larger processors. By using your local bank you are likely paying more than if you went direct to the processor since it's adding another layer to the pot.

3. There is only one part of your credit card processing cost that is negotiable and that is the processor's markup over interchange and assessments. Interchange and assessment are the same for all credit card processors. This is why Novera's fixed flat fee merchant account pricing structure is so attractive to businesses. It saves them money and there are no surprises.

4. Not using AVS (address verification service) can cost you money. Visa, MasterCard and Discover require the customer's billing address be entered for all card-not-present transactions. If you don't provide it, it will result in a downgraded transaction (resulting in higher fees).
 
5. Tiered merchant account pricing costs you more. You know you have a tiered pricing structure when your processor quotes three different rates: qualified, mid-qualified, and non-qualified. They suck you in with a super low "qualified" rate ... but what they fail to tell you is that most of your transactions will actually fall into the non-qualified higher rate. Novera Payment Solutions' fixed flat fee merchant program takes the mystery out tiered pricing by offering a single flat rate to save you money.

Get some straight talk and learn why a merchant account including our “flat fee advantage” can be one of the best business decisions you’ll ever make. This is just one of the many reasons that Therabill has teamed with Novera Payment Solutions for their integrated payment solution.

We are happy to offer a FREE savings analysis to show you how Novera Payment Solutions can save you significant money on your credit card processing fees.

The EMV Transition & Your Small Business

Posted on Fri, Sep 18 2015 @ 02:01 PM

October 1, 2015 is rapidly approaching. As a small business owner, if you don't know what this date means, it's time to start paying attention.

emv transition

 

What is EMV?

If you have a personal or business credit card, more than likely in the past year you received a new EMV card from your bank. This new card has special chip in it that your old card did not have. EMV is a global payment system that includes a microprocessor chip in debit and credit cards. The intent is to make them less vulnerable to fraud for in-person transactions. Because EMV uses better data security, this standard has been adopted in the United States and the transition is well underway. EMV terminals are already in use all over the world and growing more popular in the United States as the EMV transition is implemented and as integration deadlines approach.

 

Why does this matter to your business?

Starting on October 1, 2015, the liability shifts to businesses (large and small) for fraudulent chip card transactions. This means if you accept a chip card with a magnetic stripe reader(instead of with an EMV-ready reader), your business will be responsible for the cost if the transaction is fraudulent. This could be extremely costly for your business.

 

What do you need to do to be ready?

The time is now to ensure your credit card terminal is EMV ready.  Changing out terminals and processes can be intimidating for many business owners simply because they are not comfortable with the technology. Unfortunately, delaying this transition for your business could ultimately be very costly.

Novera Payment Solutions is here to make the EMV transition simple and seamless for your business. With 24/7 world-class support, upgrading your business card reader(s) couldn't be easier. You'll have the ability to accept credit card and debit cards anywhere at any time; and with Novera Payment Solutions innovative flat fee merchant account, your business will also save a significant amount of money on credit card processing fees.

October 1, 2015 is a mere two weeks away. Contact Novera Payment Solutions for a free consultation on the EMV transition. We are here for you!

The EMV Transition - How It Affects Your Merchant Account : Part 3

Posted on Tue, Mar 17 2015 @ 05:57 PM

How does EMV apply to payment gateways?

Some merchants connect to their payment processor through a payment gateway. Gateways used for card-present transactions will also need to undergo EMV testing and certification. Note that eCommerce payment gateways, which operate in a card-not-present environment, will not need changes for EMV.

 

emv credit card transition

What should merchants consider before making a POS device purchase?

Merchants should understand EMV-compatible POS device capabilities. POS devices that incorporate the EMV standard will be able to use up to four cardholder verification methods:

  • Signature
  • Online PIN
  • Offline PIN
  • No CVM

Determine if the new POS device that you’re considering will have contactless payment capabilities. Many POS devices bundle EMVcapable and contactless (NFC) payment features. This may allow you not only more secure transactions but also more ways to accept payments in the manner your customers want to pay.

What is my timeline for establishing EMV acceptance?

The payment network rules do not require you to switch to an EMV card acceptance process; however, if you do not switch to an EMV card acceptance process by October 1, 2015, you will be held responsible for the costs associated with use of a counterfeit EMV card in a card present transaction at your location.

We recommend that businesses upgrade their POS equipment to a version that is EMV “future ready.”

  • For most merchants October 1, 2015, is the deadline for EMV acceptance capabilities
  • For petroleum merchants using automated fuel dispensers (AFDs) October 1, 2017, is the deadline for EMV acceptance capabilities

How can a Non-EMV-compatible device accept an EMV card for payment?

EMV cards issued to US cardholders will be hybrid versions, meaning the card will have a magnetic stripe on back and chip on front. As a result, EMV cards presented for payment can still be accepted at a non-EMV-compatible POS device (payment terminal).

Is PCI DSS compliance still necessary after EMV POS devices are implemented in my business?

Yes. PCI DSS examine the payment environment and evaluate how your business accesses, transports or even stores cardholder data. PCI DSS compliance will remain a requirement.

Is end-to-end encryption (E2EE) still relevant with the introduction of EMV chipcards?

Yes. The chip in an EMV card protects individual transactions by adding a secret number only the card issuer knows, which verifies that the transaction is legitimate through an EMV-compatible POS device. However, EMV is not designed to encrypt the sensitive card information (Account Number, Exp. Date, etc.). Therefore, it is still possible for thieves to duplicate card data and create counterfeit cards that can be swiped for use at businesses that haven’t upgraded to EMV-compatible or EMV-enable POS devices or could be used with online retailers. Encryption removes this cardholder data for your POS device, which simplifies the scope of your PCI DSS obligations.

Merchants who participate in Worldpay’s E2EE program receive an indemnity waiver of up to $100,000 in total—which includes up to $30,000 in approved compromise associated costs, such as forensic audits and fines, as part of Worldpay’s PCI Program , plus an additional $70,000 if you experience a compromise as a result of the failure of Worldpay’s E2EE equipment to encrypt when used properly. Note, not all card transaction types are available for the E2EE service, and additional terms and conditions apply so contact your Worldpay representative if you are interested in learning more.

EMV capabilities along with E2EE are a great combination for highly secure payment acceptance.

What role will EMV have in payments for the online, card-not-present environment? (Internet purchases)

Currently, the EMV standard exists solely for the card-present, face-to-face environment. Worldpay will work closely with the card associations to monitor any new requirements for card-not-present transactions.

What is Worldpay’s EMV status?

  • Worldpay completed certification with all major card brand networks in 2013 (Visa, MasterCard, Discover & American Express)
  • Worldpay back-office systems incorporated EMV updates into the October 2014 Fall Release system updates
  • Worldpay’s EMV-compatible standalone POS device solutions are available now and incorporate NFC (contactless) capabilities too: VX 520 and VX 680 (wireless terminal). Soft ware to enable EMV will be released by Worldpay before the October 1, 2015, deadline
  • Testing and certification with Worldpay POS vendors is under way

 If you have additional questions, contact Novera Payment Solutions. We’re happy to help.
