Are Credit Card Companies Ripping You Off?

What exactly happens from the moment a customer swipes (or dips) their credit card and when those funds get deposited into your business bank account? Who is making money off of your business, and how?

Join us on a trip down the rabbit hole, as we follow the money on its journey through the mystical land of payment processing networks. You’ll learn:

  • How Interchange fees are determined.
  • How to avoid unnecessary processing fees.
  • How to lower bottom-line business costs while enhancing customer experience.
