Everyone is buying online today... using a credit card!

Everyone is buying online today… using a credit card!

As a publisher, you probably focus on getting your products placed in bookstores and other retail locations. Yet you know that you enjoy increased profits when you sell retail and keep the retail margin.

A credit card merchant account makes it easy to accept orders from small retailers, too. And you bank the money right away, without leaving the office!

You have a variety of business needs for somewhat non-traditional transaction processing. You need a merchant account to help with solutions for traditional mail order, telephone order, book fairs, trade shows, and for online ecommerce…

Mail Order, Telephone Order, and Special Events Sales

Selling books, CD’s, DVD’s, educational materials, and related products at special events can provide considerable additional income for a publisher.

Requiring cash can limit sales, especially if you’re selling bundles or multiple items. Taking credit and debit cards might make a world of difference in your business. Processing those payments can be a challenge. And we have good news!

You probably have little need for a retail store type terminal. Those little machines are great for retail business where card present sales are made constantly. Your needs differ.

You have a choice of methods for processing mail order, phone order, trade show sales, sales at other special events and even sales made in your office. Look!
