While a vast number of today’s consumers hold credit and debit cards, it is important to realize that not everyone is comfortable using them. This especially holds true online, where fear of hackers and identity theft makes many people stand steadfast in their refusal to enter their digits online. Whether you own an online store or a brick and mortar business, making sure that you accept the forms of payment that your customers want to use is critical, which is why it is still vital to accept checks in a credit heavy market. AVP Solutions makes it possible to accept checks from anywhere without having to worry about having them returned unpaid.
There is no doubt that many of today’s merchants are hesitant to accept checks, but this fear is largely based on an outdated model of check acceptance. While the honor system used to be the only strategy, combined with keeping a list of bad checks, merchants today have real options for check acceptance. ACH merchant accounts enable you to easily verify that an account is active and that it contains the necessary funds before offering approval. For brick and mortar merchants, this offers guaranteed funding, and for online merchants it also means that you can accept checks online while waiting for the funds to clear before shipping the order.
At AVP Solutions, we offer merchant account solutions designed with businesses and consumers in mind. We make it easy to accept checks online, on the phone, or in person, and we have the systems needed to ensure that you can seamlessly accept all forms of payment. Whether you need an ACH merchant account, a merchant cash advance, or any of our other services, we implore you to give us a call today at 1-800-719-9198 to learn what we can do to improve your business!
