Charge Administrative Fees!

Recommended Posts

Stop subsidising other industries and charge your administrative fees!

 

For example if you do towing and you have to write out a check to pay towing fees to other providers, charge an administrative fee.

 

Data entry, getting all details correctly and chasing down paper costs money. We charge a $25 to $35 fee depending how much time the clerk has to spend working on the case.

 

You should have a line on your billing system so your clerk automatically ads the admin fee when they process the payout to the other service provider.

      I get the daily calls of wanting me to switch CC processors and with MUCH (misplaced) confidence, I refused to have a discussion with any of these guys, because I already had great rates.   Then, I had a persistent one call me back and ask why I didn't want to talk.  She said enough right things that I let the salesman come visit me.  
      My rates were and supposedly were going to get better over time as I built up history.  Original Quote:
      Credit Card Rate - 0.05% + Interchange (AMEX 0.055%) Debit Card Rate - 0.05% + Interchange Credit Transaction fee - 0.05 cents per transaction Debit Transaction Fee - 0.05 cents per transaction PCI Compliance-$9.95/monthly Chargeback fee-$10.00 (VISA, MC, Discover) $30.00 (AMEX) Paper Statement-$5.95 monthly (online statements free) The other guy comes in and tells me that my current processor increased my rates and added numerous junk fees.    The rate raised to 0.25% for most cards and .75% for AMEX and now have a $34.95 platform fee and numerous other fees.   At this point, I stand to save $250/month minimum by switching CC vendors.     I did confirm that on day 1, my bills had way fewer fees.  The bills also stated that they were raising rates along the way, so they were disclosed and allowed by contract.  I'm halfway thru a 3 year contract with a $495 cancellation fee.   This is what I'm paying now with the same processor: 
      Credit Card Rate - 0.25% + Interchange (AMEX 0.75%) Debit Card Rate - 0.05% + Interchange Credit Transaction fee - 0.05 cents per transaction Debit Transaction Fee - 0.05 cents per transaction PCI Compliance-$9.95/monthly Annual PCI Audit Fee - $99 Chargeback fee-$10.00 (VISA, MC, Discover) $30.00 (AMEX) Paper Statement-$5.95 monthly (online statements free) New Junk Fees - $41 To be clear, the interchange fees don't change on either deal.  We are only dealing with CC processor markup fees and junk fees.   The 0.05% is a markup fee over interchange.    The new deal is:
      Credit Card Rate - 0.05% + Interchange (all cards including AMEX) Debit Card Rate - 0.00% + Interchange Credit Transaction fee - 0.05 cents per transaction Debit Transaction Fee - 0.05 cents per transaction PCI Compliance - $0 (with a successful audit and $9.95/month penalty without one) Annual PCI audit fee - ?? Chargeback fees - $25.00 (VISA, MC, Discover, AMEX) - refundable if you win Monthly Charge - $10.00 As best I can tell, it looks legitimate.   I'll be carefully reading the new contract tomorrow.   So, the real question is whether or not I'm switching from one liar to another liar?     This second one is telling me that my contract will have the rates guaranteed and locked in.   If I see the right things in writing, I'll be switching.  Will recoup my cancellation / startup costs in 3 months.
      I guess the moral is get an annual checkup from a competitor. 
      Supposedly these rates are available as a result of being low-risk from my transaction history (or it's just marketing-speak).  I don't know.    My original deal was reasonable, but it isn't any longer.   My plans were to wait for the 3 year contract to end before shopping around.

      Loma Solutions represents a 0% credit card fee solution.   We have 1000's of customers in the US and our solution makes auto shop owners thousands of extra dollars every year.

      How does 0% processing work?
      When your customer decides to pay with a card, they have 2 options.  If they use a credit card, a small percentage of the transaction will be charged to their card.  If they use a debit card, there will be no fee to the customer.  Our software does all the work and explains to the customer of their choice prior to the card being authorized.

      What exactly are the costs to the merchant and to the customer?
      For credit cards: Merchant pays zero credit card fees, the customer pays 3.5% of the transaction
      For debit cards:  Merchant pays 1% + $0.25/authorization, the customer pays 0 fees

      Facts:
      - A card swiper is not needed: credit card information can be typed in a phone, computer or over the phone.  There is a 'brick' card swiper if needed*
      - No set-up costs or any other fees
      - Our agreement is month-to-month
      - If you auto batch by 8:00 PM EST, you get your money the next day
      - The solution complies with all card rules and regulations
      - We'll have you up-and-running within a week

      Benefits to the Merchant:
      *** You are being fair to your customer by offering them a choice to pay a fee or not, while you are eliminating your credit card fees, which can be up to 2.5% of your total card sales.
      - Simple to use and all charges are viewable through our real-time online portal.  
      - Support: our team is there when you need us.  We will show you and anyone on your team how to use the solution, but it’s very straight forward.
       
      Making you more money!
      If your current credit card fees are 2.5% of your total card sales, for every $50,000 in credit card transactions, you'll put an extra $1,250 in your pocket.
      * we will provide you with a ‘brick’ terminal: $35/month if needed.  This includes free paper re-supplies.
        Reach out if you'd like to discuss.

      We currently pay 2.5% in credit processing fees. Is this average rate or does this seem high?
