Payment transactions have long been a source of headaches for small-business owners in the B2B marketplace. Using complex invoicing systems and traditional transaction methods like ACH and business checking, wholesalers and distributors frequently deal with delayed reimbursements and tight margins while trying to protect razor-thin profits.
Today, owners of small businesses frequently use corporate business cards for their purchasing. Further, more than half of all business-to-business transactions are performed by credit card. To be a successful B2B company, it is essential you offer your customers a variety of payment options.
At Merchant Card Advisors, we offer complete merchant payment services, along with a robust suite of tools to help you address the challenges of B2B transactions. Our goal is to ensure you process payments as efficiently and profitably as possible.
B2B Payment Transaction Challenges
The complexity of B2B payment transactions and the high sales value of each transaction can cause payment processing services for this sector to be expensive — or in some cases, simply not available.
Many mainstream banks and financial companies don’t give B2B businesses the desirable rating of “low risk.” As a result, these companies may not offer merchant services, or offer them only at top dollar. To compound this problem, many types of B2B business are prone to fraudulent transactions, making B2B merchant accounts even more expensive.
At Merchant Card Advisors, we can help you traverse these pitfalls with a customized merchant account solution for your B2B, wholesale or distribution company.
