What is a Terminal Provider?

When accepting credit card payments, one can do so over the phone, on the Internet or on their smartphone applications. While true, most people don’t think of their terminal provider, and that is the reason there is some confusion. With this in mind, here are three things a terminal provider does.

Online, or in person:

First and foremost, when accepting money, one can do so with a physical POS system or on the Internet. Both have advantage, and a person should know what he or she wants. Luckily, when using a terminal provider, one can get to the bottom of it, and they can figure out their wants and needs. For this reason, when thinking about credit card processing with a provider, one should know that they have multiple options.

Provides it all:

Think about the average business owner, and it’s easy to see that they are busy. They don’t usually have time to worry about credit card processing, and it’s easier to trust it all to a large and well-established provider who can help the client figure out his or her short and long-term needs. While true, it’s wise to shop around and find the provider that does everything the client needs. When doing so, it’s easier to figure out what one need and wants. Otherwise, without this approach, when looking for merchant accounts, one will struggle.


Finally, one must know that merchant accounts are tricky, and mistakes can cause a company owner a lot of frustration. To combat this, one should choose a company that offers a lot of phone support. This isn’t usually hard, and one should have no trouble if they simply call the provider and ask a few questions. Ideally, a terminal provider will offer phone, email and in person tech support. Otherwise, without this, one will struggle when they want to accept payments when there is a problem. Remember, while it’s not fun to think about, one must remember that issues will occur, and it’s easier to do well if a person has a hardworking and dedicated person on the other end of the phone helping out with the problem.

When looking to run a company and accept payments, one should have a terminal provider. When getting a good one, it’s easier to run a company, accept payments and ensure that everything works right the first time. otherwise, without one, a person will struggle.



It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this company.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
