Visa ® has millions of credit cards in circulation. As a large provider of credit lines, Visa® processes billions of dollars in credit card processing transactions each year. Obviously, choosing Visa as a merchant account credit card option is essential to your businesses success. But what other options do you have to accept credit cards?
MasterCard® holds a sizeable percentage of the credit card market. The credit card processing volume for MasterCard in the United States alone reaches into the billions. This astonishing fact gives reason and motivation to add MasterCard to the list of your merchant account credit card options.
Two other popular forms of payment methods are Discover® Network and American Express®. These two cards are not usually packaged together like Visa and MasterCard and may require a different credit card processing fee and set-up cost. However, since many cardholders rely on American Express, it may behoove you to accept credit cards like Amex as a standard form of payment. By adding a merchant account to your online or offline business, your customers will feel comfortable knowing their personal credit information is being processed safely and securely.
