One of the worst credit card processing companies ever. They hold your 50% of your transaction minimum 180 days then they will review that case to decide to release it or not. Some companies rely on full amount of every transaction but TransFirs doesn't care.…

Evaluation Criteria: Best Retail Credit Card Processing Services
Competitive Rates
Competitive Rates

Retail businesses and merchants often require a payment processing solution with highly competitive rates associated with their large sum and quantity of credit card and debit card payments. During our analysis of retail credit card processing companies, we compare the different fees and costs associated with accepting a large number of transactions over a period of time to industry averages and leaders in the industry.

Reliability
Reliability

Many retailers have their own set of hours and expectations for how their payment processing services are being implemented and maintained. As a result, it is important for a retail processing company to take into consideration the explicit needs of each retail customer to ensure the optimal uptime and performance of the processes responsible for accepting and processing a client’s payment request at time of purchase.

Efficiency
Efficiency

Retailers look to use payment processing solutions which integrate directly within their point of sale solution or use retailers which provide an all-in-one point of sale solution. It is important for the payment process to be as efficient as possible to ensure the processing solution will work with whatever systems the retail partner uses in order to track the purchases of their clients and access important reports.

Variance
Variance

In addition to the overall quality of the service, it is important for retail processing companies to offer their retail merchants the opportunity to accept payments through other means. Many retailers look to have an online store for their sales in addition to their retail stores while others may require the acceptance of checks or other forms of payments including gift and loyalty cards for the long term benefits achieved.

Customer Support
Customer Support

For many retailers it is absolutely crucial to ensure that any issues they have with their payment processing and merchant services to be resolved in a set amount of time. It is expected for merchant service providers to invest heavily into their customer support to ensure any issues which they encounter during their normal use of their payment processing systems can be easily alleviated quickly and efficiently.
