Optimal Payment Systems specializes in lowering overall credit card costs, streamlining accounting procedures and simplifying processes, using proven, integrated, cost-effective solutions.
At OPS, we look at more than the advertised “rates”, we scrutinize fee structures, unnecessary downgrades and other hidden fees. We also want to understand a company’s specific requirements and wants. Oftentimes, we can then recommend additional cost-saving “better practices” and strategies that management may not be aware of.
Do you wonder if your business is paying more than it should for credit card processing?
When was the last time you reviewed your company’s payment processing costs and processes?
Do you have any issues or concerns with chargebacks, reconciliation or reporting?
Do you wonder if your processes and software could be more efficient, integrated and streamlined?
Are you concerned about compliance, security or fraud?
Consider this: $5,000 in new savings for an organization with a 5% pre-tax profit margin, is like adding $100,000 in new revenues. Also, reducing expenses may allow your organization to pursue and capitalize on opportunities that could not justified in the past.
Reducing Credit Card Fees
Credit card processing is by design, complicated and challenging to understand. Reducing credit card costs positively impacts profit margins, cash-flow and even the valuation of the company itself. Using a consultative approach, we help our clients better understand payment processing, reduce fees and simplify and streamline accounting procedures.
Several companies take a piece of the pie. Credit card companies and the banks that issue credit cards charge “interchange” fees, which are not negotiable and can’t be reduced. Processors confirm funds are available and make deposits into merchant accounts. Processors’ fees can often be reduced.
Optimal proudly represents most major processors. This allows to lower our clients’ fees without changing processors or provide the best processor for their needs.
Reducing Fees Using “Better Practices”
By lowering processing rates and incorporating “better-practices”, Optimal helps its clients lower their overall processing fees by as much as 50% or more.
ACH (Direct Debit or Electronic Check) eliminates unnecessary credit card fees by transferring funds directly from the customer’s bank account to yours for as little as $.30. ACH is ideal for any organization with recurring payments.
Corporate and Business card rates are expensive. Adding transaction detail such as customer name, transaction amount, tax amount, transaction date, PO number, etc. can reduce fees by as much as 1%. This is known as interchange optimization and Level 2 and Level 3 Data. This is information many businesses collect anyway.
