Financial services company’s no-cost payment processing option improves bottom line for merchants

TEMECULA, Calif. – June 29, 2018 — National Merchants Association (NMA) – an innovative merchant services provider, pro-business advocate and payments acquirer – is empowering businesses to earn and save more revenue through its progressive No-Cost Credit Card Processing Program.

A Super-Charged Program
NMA’s No-Cost Processing Program affords merchants the opportunity to pass the cost of accepting credit cards on to the consumer – eliminating the need for merchants to pay processing fees associated with credit card transactions.

How Does It Work?
Using a pass-through processing system integrated with a merchant’s existing point-of-sale software, NMA’s program pre-analyzes transactions and automatically detects whether a customer is using a credit or debit card. Upon detection, the system will display the transaction amount – including the processing fee – before giving customers the option to authorize or cancel.

Program Benefits:

  • Merchants receive 100 percent of the item/service sale price when customers pay by credit card
  • Compliant with major credit card networks and with individual state restrictions
  • Merchants have the ability to offer consumers a discount on transactions paid with cash or a debit card
  • Automatic surcharge alert and notice of alternative payment options
  • Seamless integration with compatible POS systems
  • No additional hardware needed
  • Expedited, in-house tech support and customer care provided

A testament to its commitment to merchant advocacy and success, NMA seeks to empower businesses through its No-Cost Processing Program.

“Throughout the course of a year, many merchants absorb excessive costs that they often don’t anticipate – all in an effort to better serve customers,” says NMA CEO, Heather Altepeter.

“NMA’s new No-Cost Processing Program puts merchants in control to accept payment methods preferred by customers without penalties.”
