Minimizing Credit Card Processing Fees

Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Nearly every merchant today must accept credit cards to run a successful business.

That said, few merchants, if any, have ever been "trained" on how to open a merchant account. Since all merchant account agreements are a minimum of three years, making a mistake in this area of a merchant's business will not only be costly, it will create unnecessary pain for the business owner.

This webinar provides vital and enlightening information to help new merchants open a merchant account, and will help merchants who already have a merchant account and are thinking about switching suppliers to look for ways to decrease costs and to protect themselves from credit card scams.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
