Who Benefits from Merchant Services
As a business, if you process credit card payments, you are likely using merchant services. The capabilities of a merchant services provider vary according to the business’ needs and the industry.
Customers love convenience, and those same customers are rapidly adopting new technologies. Businesses that go beyond merely accepting credit card payments to include the acceptance of NFC technology, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Microsoft Pay and other virtual “Wallets” are staying ahead of the curve and keeping more customers happy. Convenient payment processing solutions are a benefit to your customers, and can even be a competitive advantage for a business.
Expected Fees for Processing Payments for Your Business
Finding a great merchant services company involves finding the right fee schedule and the right customer experience. Ask yourself, will this be more convenient for my customers? If so, how much of an impact will it make on your business? As we said before, consumers today love convenience, so make sure to take that into account when selecting the ideal merchant services provider for your business.

What to look for when choosing the best payment solutions for your small business?
Do you ever have to call your patients or customers to remind them to make a payment? Or have you had a patient or customer who was running late, and didn’t have time to stand in line at a busy office waiting to use the terminal? Merchant services can be very helpful in these instances, especially when you choose a provider who focuses on providing convenient payment processing solutions to your customers! You want merchant services that are easy, fast, secure, transparent and personalized. In short, you want Weave Payments.
Find a platform that speeds up making and receiving payments
Traditional invoicing time can take up 25-30 days. It also requires printing, envelopes, stamps, and employee time, which costs about $12-$30 per invoice. Weave’s robust Text to Pay feature is easy and takes the hassle out of collecting and making payments allowing the employee time to focus on other office tasks.
Instead of chasing down customers to pay their bills, simply open the payments icon, find the customer’s name, and send their invoice via text with a personalized message, using a secure link to request payment. Text to Pay helps your office collect payments on the same day of the service, within a few seconds, with absolutely no paperwork. If you are going to accept credit card payments, consider the time that it takes to get paid by the merchant provider as well¹. Faster collection means better cash flow and sustained business growth. Text to Pay is also HIPAA compliant for medical offices! This convenience is just one of the payment processing options that you should expect from your merchant services provider.
Have you ever been standing at your dentist’s office reception desk ready to pay only to realize that you forgot your wallet? Weave has you covered! Weave Payments accepts all major credit card brands as well as digital wallets. In addition, a business can send a simple text to any customer to collect payment if they don’t have any form of payment. This makes life easy for you and your customers!
Besides Text To Pay and the physical in-office terminals, Weave Payments offers a virtual terminal payment tool that enables the merchant to process payments without the physical presence of the card (card not present transaction) or customer by manually inputting customer information online. For example, if a client wants to make a credit card payment over the phone, the business can collect the customer’s information and process it just using a computer connected to the internet, to log into a website or merchant account. This is just one of the features that make a merchant account with Weave a no-brainer.
Branding for your payments
The right merchant services can provide major value to businesses that are trying to build their brand. If a company is going to be consistent with their branding efforts, they must do so in every interaction with the customer, including the payment stage. Branding presents your company in a professional way and customers are more likely to feel comfortable using your services or spending their hard-earned money with you when they can associate your business with a quality brand.
Furthermore, branding helps customers recognize your business thus securing business. With Weave Payments, businesses can customize customer or patient invoices, receipts and payment page with the company’s billing information, name and logo. Making a payment is a memorable activity for a customer, so get your branding in their faces. Study shows that patients who are satisfied with the billing processes (or the last part of the customer transaction) are more likely to pay medical bills in full, return or recommend the office.
This key in any sale, because transparency results in trust and confidence. Will the merchant services provider’s product offer the quality of service you are expecting? Whichever provider you choose, ensure that they explain specifically when and how you will be charged, the length of the contract, cancellation terms, and early termination fees so that there are no unexplained surprise charges on your merchant statement.
Weave Payments is contract-free and has no early termination fees because we want our customers to find the best processing solution for their needs and understand the apprehension in committing to a product that they have yet to experience.
This is equally as important when considering the best merchant services provider for your business. For example, if you provide on-line payments it is critical to choose a provider that uses a secure method utilizing encryption when running credit or debit card transactions. This is the best way to provide a high level of payment security to your online customers.
