Merchant Account Rates

Merchant account rates and other costs are a critically important part of an overall merchant services program. Unlike Eagle Merchant Services, many merchant service competitors will list generic "pricing" on their websites to lure you into their sales process. This pricing typically does not take into account all the real merchant account costs.

The competitor's pricing also will not be tailored to your business. You see Visa and MasterCard have many different rate categories depending on your business type that will affect the overall cost of your credit card processing. The only accurate way to know your merchant account rate for your business is for the merchant account provider to know specific aspects about your business. You need to speak to a merchant account specialist to define the right merchant account rate for your business type.

By generalizing merchant account rates, competitors also fail to present other significant costs associated with credit card processing like:

  • Do they charge any monthly minimums?
  • Do they charge annual fees?
  • Do they apply early cancellation fees even if you're unhappy with their service?
  • Do they offer extended terminal warranties?
  • Do they provide free paper supplies?
  • Are rate up charges applied for different card types?
  • Are rate up charges applied for hand-keyed sales?
  • Do they force equipment leases? (most are non-cancelable!)
  • Are you charged for incorrect programming of terminals?
  • How long do you have to wait on funds deposits?

Get these questions answered BEFORE you move into a long-term contract with a merchant service provider because their rates are presumably low. Or better yet, contact us and we will walk you step-by-step through all of the costs associated with accepting credit cards.

At Eagle Merchant Services we know an educated client, one that fully understands all of the costs and how they pertain to their business, is our best, long-term client. We promise to take the time to fully understand your business and inform you of all the costs that are associated with accepting credit cards.

We will also work on finding the best credit card processing solution to keep your costs to a minimum. It is our goal to have you as a loyal and long-term client. Like Bill Rowland of Advantage Press, a client of ours for over ten years, who wrote us one day to say...

"PERFECT! I must have spent three months researching credit card processing services before I selected Eagle Merchant Services. In the process I found incompetent people answering the phones (and my questions), higher rates, complicated procedures, and much confusion.

I selected Eagle not because your rates are reasonable (they are), but because of your people: they are by far the best I have come across. During the process of setting up my merchant accounts I have had the occasion to call you 3-4 times -- and each time as I hung up the phone I congratulated myself on the great choice I made going with Eagle Merchant Services.

You are the best because your people are the best. Thanks to everyone at Eagle who helped me. I will most definitely highly recommend you to other businesses!"

Eagle Merchant Services' payment processing equipment pricing is held low to allow your business to start accepting credit cards without straining your budget. And as your business grows, we have the processing equipment and systems to grow with you.
