Everything you need to know about Merchant Services
The area of merchant services can appear daunting from an outsider looking in and can appear complicated to business owners and cause confusion amongst business owners with so much to choose from.
Wireless Terminal Solutions are experts in the area of merchant services, and we hope to make things as simple as possible for our customers.
Are business bank accounts the same as merchant accounts?
Put quite simply, no! Business owners sometimes confuse merchant accounts with bank accounts. They are two totally separate entities. A bank account is where your business funds are stored. A merchant account is a credit account arranged between the merchant and acquiring bank. Not all acquiring banks offer the same merchant services.
Merchant services misconceptions
There is a common misconception that you need to get your merchant services from the bank your business account is with. This is not the case – you can bank with one financial establishment and have your merchant services account with another. There is no extra cost to have this facility. This allows you to shop around for the merchant service best suited to your needs.
