Course Description

Merchant services, like payment processing, are vital for businesses today. Whether you’re a brick-and-mortar business or you conduct most of your business on the world wide web, the ability to accept multiple forms of payment enables you to remain competitive in today’s global economy, as well as locally in your community.

Every year, businesses pay approximately $180 billion in credit card processing fees. These fees are convoluted, confusing, obscure, and often misleading. Credit card companies make money off cardholders in a wide range of ways and their income has been experiencing solid growth for years. They charge for:

  • Interest Income
  • Interchange Fees
  • Cash Advance Fees
  • Annual Fees
  • Penalty Fees
  • Enhancement Income

While the current environment is no time to ignore cost-reduction projects, many businesses nonetheless will avoid or abandon these efforts in the coming year. Unfortunately, this neglect is especially true around credit card processing fees—even as transactions skyrocket following a year of decline. In this CPE webinar, we look at current market conditions that have created a perfect storm of higher processing fees at a time when accounting teams don’t have time to manage them. As the economy ramps back up, cost reduction needs to be taken seriously.

Great job Jeremy! Your presentation was easy to follow, made great points, provided quality analysis of the overall impact in the economy. I commend you for your commitment to long-term. There is much pressure from banks to set up as many customers as possible on the "visa" payment program; why would anyone do that? I am a former employee of a cc processor and accuracy is not a core value.

I am working on a project at work related to credit card fees so I appreciated the information provided in the Webinar to get more understanding on the topic. I just won't typically use it in my daily work.

The webinar was very informative. I have a client who may benefit from Verisave. I'm going to relate what I learned from the webinar today. Also, I never saw the 3rd polling question.
