Why Customer Service is Important in Payment Processing

By Jeff Kohl on Oct 17, 2019 11:28:35 AM



When it comes to business, there is nothing more important than providing the best customer experience for your customers. Many companies do the job when it comes to signing clients but do they go the distance when it comes to customer service to retain their clients? Almost half of U.S. consumers have deserted a purchase due to poor or lack of customer service. Many times, the customer gets a robot teller and menu that is difficult to navigate or even get placed on hold for an excruciating amount of time. This can obviously lead to great frustration and make clients walk away from your business. Customer service can end up making or breaking a company or organization. When selecting a merchant service provider you want to select one that provides live 24/7 support to fulfill requests or to answer questions and get any inquiry resolved quickly and painlessly. It is important to have a payments provider who is there when you need them.
APS Payments 24/7 Live Support is there when you need it, so you can run your business efficiently . Our commitment to transparency and the dedication of our payments expert to answer fully answer any question you may have sets us apart!

Understanding Fraud in the eCommerce Payment Chain

By Brian Nunes on Sep 19, 2019 1:17:31 PM

 
Guest Post by Rafael Lourenco, EVP, ClearSale

Many merchants are so focused on winning a sale — getting a customer to click “Buy” — that they don’t realize a transaction is not over when a browser has converted into a buyer. Not only are there multiple steps going on behind the scenes to successfully process a customer’s payment, but a sale is never truly won until the chargeback window has closed and the customer is satisfied with their purchase.

The more educated eCommerce retailers are about the payment process, the better prepared they will be to make sure every fraudulent order gets declined and every legitimate order gets approved. When this goes wrong, fraudulent orders turn into chargebacks, and legitimate orders can be falsely declined – both of which hurt the retailer’s revenue and aggravate the good customers.

5 Consequences to PCI Non-Compliance

By Jeff Kohl on Sep 7, 2019 12:30:00 PM

What are the consequences for merchants if they are not PCI DSS compliant? 

PCI-DSS compliance can be difficult and time consuming to accomplish without the right guidance or help provided to you and your business. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards that help keep you and your business safe from a breach in the system, which could be costly. Being PCI compliant not only gives peace of mind but it makes your business stronger and more secure. Trying to attempt the complicated process on your own can, in some cases, steer a business down the path of being PCI Non-Compliant. This leaves your company and clients at risk in multiple ways, as this blog will demonstrate. Non-compliance can lead to many different consequences such as monthly penalties, data breaches, legal action, damaged reputation, and even revenue loss.
