Opening your very own merchant account offers a wide variety of benefits. All of
them contribute to your income.
1. It's Easy
Accepting credit card payments online is convenient for your constituents.
By accepting online credit cards, your constituents will be able to pay their
municipal bills and fees from the convenience of their home or office.
2. You Get Paid Faster
Credit card transactions are deposited into your bank account within 24-48 hours
– much faster than the time that it takes to receive checks in the mail and then
wait for them to clear.
3. You Save Time
You'll have secure, real-time credit card processing that allows you to authorize,
settle, refund, and manage credit card transactions online.
4. You Save on Bank Fees
Governments that accept credit cards reduce or eliminate the volume of bad checks returned
for "non-sufficient funds" (NSF) and the associated bank fees, penalties, and collections
5 Your Municipal Building is Now Open 24 / 7
In this day and age, residents are looking for convenience. The average
resident may not be able to get to your municipal building during standard
hours. By accepting credit card payments through your municipal website,
you remain open long after your doors are closed.
