good insights provided on credit card surcharging issues. Also, the content was presented in such a way that it was easy to understand.

NB

I found this topic very interesting. I am going to approach 2 of my clients with the largest Credit Card usage to see if they would appreciate having an analysis performed on the their Merchant accounts. Novel approach to Merchant accountability.

KD

Data presented was informational but presenter didn't go into details as to how companies can edit set up with interchange to impact reduce their interchange fees. Info was really high level.

BM

Great webinar, learned a lot. I don't directly deal with this side of AP/AR in my current role but still helpful to learn and applicable if I move into a role on that team in the future.

KF

I love these webinars and I always learn something new. I can't believe they are free, they are better than the certain course I pay for and I will keep coming back.

BS

I work for Intuit as a Tax Expert preparing returns for self-employed clients. They need to know about the fees that are added on in addition to the 3% fee for offering the VISA or MC to their clients. Someone who paints my house will allow me to charge the amount by tacking on an additional 3% to pay for their fee. They don't know about the processors fees.
