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

Posted by sandy Waggett 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.


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.
