But is what you asked for really what you're
going to get...
If you have seen, or even been offered, a cheaper rate elsewhere
we may be able to match it or possibly
beat it, even if you are new to online payments. However
the deals people receive aren't always what they seem...
We have been around a long time and know the tricks
Sometimes we get potential customers
who state that they have been offered a merchant account
for as little as 0.6% and that our standard
offering is expensive when compared against it. Unfortunately
9 times out of 10 what they are comparing us against isn't
actually the same offering, therefore it isn't a fair
comparison - for example 0.6% may just be the processing
fee, but what about scheme and interchange fees? Even
worse, sometimes what they have been offered isn't what
they will actually get!
Our rates are the same for all cards (Visa, MasterCard,
Amex) and there’s no difference between EU or Worldwide
Cards. Plus all rates offered include all associated fees
added together - scheme fee, processing fee and interchange
fee. Therefore you will always know exactly what rate
you will pay on each transaction.
Unfortunately it's not always due to a lack of understanding,
but often deliberate mis-selling...
always blame the customer
We know of a number of banks who are offering
standard merchant accounts and not explaining clearly that
they are for offline payments, such as chip
and pin. On top of this they are also offering what
is known as 'capture' pricing where by they advertise, even
offer, a very low online transaction rate. It's not until
right at the end, when the merchant has been waiting weeks
for their account to go live, that they suddenly show the
real pricing on their
contracts. It is hoped that as the merchant has been
waiting so long, and is so close to going live, they will
just sign. With Web-Merchant what you see is what you get!
It pays to know our
Obviously not all our competitors are
mis-selling. In fact 90% of online payment service providers
are genuine and honest companies. However we do keep a
very close eye on them and know exactly what they offer,
the terms that they provide it and, most importantly,
what they charge.
Are they offering the
same as us
Do other online payment companies offer the same elements,
features, level of service and FREE ad-on's? Do they provide
both the internet merchant account AND gateway?
When comparing please make sure that you do get
the repeat billing facility,
multi-currency processing, virtual
terminal and PCI compliance
for FREE. Unlike us, many providers charge an extra monthly
fee for each of these functions.
Beating genuine transaction
If you are an established business already taking payments
online we will be able to help. We may even beat your current
deal. You don't even need to be making squillions or have
been trading online for years. We'll even waive the set-up
fee. And remember, this offer is available to all business
types - low or high risk!
As we're sure you understand, we can not match
a quote based on transaction rate alone if the other company
is charging an extra fee for the same elements and features
that we provide FREE.
To kick start the process

we will be unable to make you an offer.
