A Dydacomp client in called in recently with a question about payment gateways that integrate with Mail Order Manager. He is in the gift industry and processes a large volume of credit cards with an average ticket of $50 and over 90,000 transactions per year.
I explained all their options and they were interested in the First Data Global Gateway and Merchant Services Bundle Package especially because we can negotiate better rates and, in some cases, be able to secure a free global gateway on their behalf. In addition, the First Data Global Gateway and Merchant Services Bundle Package integrate perfectly with M.O.M. 7, our PCI compliant version of M.O.M.
The client then addressed another concern, asking “What if we sell cigars and alcohol or adult material? Would we still be approved?” I let him know that with our First Data Global Gateway and Merchant Services Bundle Package we can approve all merchants as long they provide certain financial documents and meet website requirements such as including disclosure of privacy and return policies. One of the reasons we recommend that our clients use SiteLINK as their ecommerce platform is that the SiteLINK team is very familiar with these requirements and will make sure that the client site meets them.
Needless to say, that my client ended up sending me 3 recent merchant statements to analyze and in return I negotiated lower rates through First Data on their behalf as well as a Free Global Gateway. The client’s Gateway savings alone were over $9000. The client is very pleased with not only the savings but the level of service they are receiving.
