We figure the best way to do this is to partner with those who help manage the payment portals/invoice processing. This means you can advise clients on our solutions which help them improve efficiency, save money, and at the same time you can receive a small reward from us as a thank you for referring business.
How this works:
Note for web designers:
For online payment gateways, you create a shopping cart as normal, then there are 3 ways to connect:
1. API (We can send you the technical details)
2. Hosted solution just adding 2 lines of code. This works like Paypal where it opens a 3D secure window for payment. It is very easy to implement and costs €6 less. This is what we recommend for most small businesses who want the quickest and easiest method.
3. Plug-ins (which we do not recommend as they require regular updating)
We are a Certified Reseller for New Payment Innovation (NPI) which is a cost-effective alternative to High Street banks or payment service providers with the added benefit of access to the NPI Revolution portal for transaction management information and consumer intelligence.
We provide multi-channel payment services including online processing, payment terminal and merchant services through partnerships. NPI’s award-winning analytics and customer insight portal called Revolution is widely acknowledged as the leading platform in the industry.
Check the NPI reviews on Google – all are 5 stars!
If your client takes in less than €1000/month in person, they’d probably benefit from something like Sum Up. If your client receives under €1500/month online, they’d probably want Stripe/Paypal.
If, however, your client receives more €1000-€1500/month, we can get them on great rates.
There is no one-size-fits-all system for this, but to give a simple example costs work out around:
€20-€30/month payment terminal/online portal
€6 PCI admin fee
Transactional fees of around 0.35% debit, 0.75% credit cards + 3c-6c/transaction
Online this equates to reduction from around 3% with Paypal to around 1% depending on their business. Offline, we’ll beat whatever rates they’re currently on and aim to stay competitive enough that they’ll never again need to change provider!
This quote above is a sample, in practice it could be a little lower or higher depending on the turnover, type of system needed and whether it’s online or in person. We can provide all the necessary information to suit their needs and ensure they have excellent service and support throughout.
