How to plug a pin pad into a Verifone VX510 credit card terminal

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Before you plug the pin pad in to the Verifone VX510 make sure that the power is unplugged.  If you do not unplug the terminal you risk blowing out the encryption on the pin pad.  You will then have to send it back to your merchant card service processor to have it re-encrypted.  This can take up to a month – so – make sure you unplug the terminal!

When you look at the bottom of the terminal you will see the power port and 3 other ports.  The pin pad plugs into the port on the far left of the terminal (see picture below for reference)  Plug it in securely and power the terminal back up!

If the pin pad is not working you may have the following issues:

- The pin pad is either not encrypted or is not encrypted for your credit card processor.

-Your credit card terminal is not programmed to have pin debit entry as an option.  Have your independent sales representative call in to support to add pin debit to the file and re-download the eVx510.

-You merchant card services account is not set up to accept pin debit.  Have your sales rep get an addendum to add pin debit card processing.

Square Payments iphone credit card processing puts consumers and business owners at risk

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

We get a lot of questions about  credit card processing through Iphones and Blackberries.  We do offer this service – but currently only with the option to key in the credit card number through a secure connection.  Multiple times a day we get requests for swipers that will plug directly into these devices.  More often than not we are being asked to sell a product similar to the  Square Payments credit card swiper.  Our fear has always been a lack of security involved with these types of  merchant card service transactions – and now it looks like we have been correct in not offering a product similar to Square’s.  Take a look at the link below  - From Verifone,  the largest credit card terminal manufacturer in the world, regarding security issues.

Are you sure you still want that cool new credit card skimmer – er – credit card swiper?

What does it take to sell credit card processing?

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

We get a lot of applications from independent sales reps who want to sell merchant services for us.  The one question these people always ask is:  ”what exactly will I be doing?”  The answer:  Saving business owners money on the monthly bill that they pay to Visa and Mastercard.

Whenever a business swipes a credit card as a payment for one of their products they must pay a percentage of that sale to Visa or Mastercard.  This fee typically runs anywhere from 1-3% depending on the card type.  Capital Bankcard has the ability to save anywhere from 10-50% off of the monthly fees that these merchants pay to process these credit cards.

Your job as a merchant account sales representative requires you to approach these businesses and get a copy of their monthly credit card processing bill.  You will then fax it directly to us so we can put together a cost comparison.  If we can save the business money ( which we can 95% of the time) then we will email the comparison back to you to present to the client.  Then all you have to do is sign them up to work with us.

We will be there to help you close the deal over the phone and answer any questions the client may have.  As the sales rep on the account you will earn an upfront bonus plus residual every month that the client accepts credit cards with us!  To find out more about how you can sell merchant services and help small businesses save money click here!

How much money can you make when you sell merchant services and credit card processing?

Monday, July 19th, 2010

We often get asked by new independent sales reps how much they can make when they sell merchant services.  Below is a breakdown of how they can make over six figures in their first year.  While not everyone does – the top performers and best  If you work hard only 4 hours a day, calling on 20 businesses a day, you WILL bring on 1 new client every day. Over the month you will average 20 deals per month….

So – if you write 20 deals a month for a year you will earn the following:

Monthly bonus: $22,000 Quarterly bonuses: $3,600 Upfront account bonuses: $14,400 (assuming all are paid at our lowest bonus level!)

This equates to an annual salary of $40,000 – BEFORE your monthly residuals on all of these accounts!

Now lets factor in your monthly residuals. If you average $25-$50 per account – which is very possible – you will build your residual by $500-$1000 per month. At the end of 12 months this will mean a recurring residual stream of between $38,500 and $75,000!

Your total compensation for your FIRST year will be between $78,500 and $115,000!

Now imagine if you worked 8 hours a day and brought in twice this number of accounts….You CAN do this job part time and make a very nice living!

So – what are you waiting for??? Get started now! Learn More!

How will the new financial overhaul bill affect credit card processing?

Thursday, July 15th, 2010
6. Lower minimums for credit card purchases at stores
Say you walk into a gas station and pick up some soda, candy, and gum. The total is $11, but there’s a sign at the register saying you can only pay by credit card if the purchase is $20 or more. Under the new legislation, the minimum can be no more than $10, and only the Federal Reserve can raise it.
As many of you may have heard – the senate and congress have finally come to agreement on a financial regulation bill.  When the bill was initially drafted there was much concern in our industry that we would be fully regulated.  After they have chopped up their bill this fear has waned and at the end of the day we will see the following changes:
1.  Lower minimums for credit card purchases at stores
After years of not being allowed to do so – it will be legal for businesses to have a minimum charge amount  on a credit card. Under the new legislation, the minimum can be no more than $10, and only the Federal Reserve can raise it.
Many businesses with a lower average ticket have been enforcing minimums for years – now they will be able to do it legally – and for now, it can be no lower than $10.
2.  Limits on debit card fees
The Federal Reserve will have the power to limit the fees that card issuers can collect on debit-card transactions.   ( The interchange portion of the transaction that is kept by the issuing bank – NOT the transaction fee charged by the ISO)   Stores and restaurants say lower fees would allow them to cut prices, and to hire more people. But even if prices do fall at the store, banks might raise fees and rates for their customers. They could also scale back “reward” cards or free checking to make up for the money they’ll lose from stores and restaurants.
At the end of the day our industry will not see any massive changes in the pricing of accounts.  We will see a reduction in debit card interchange – which will be positive for businesses and for those clients still on a tiered rate structure , will create a great opportunity for savings by switching to interchange plus pricing,
