It’s not often you do a comparison of house or car insurance, utility bills or personal banking service charges, but we reckon it’s even less common for the owners of independent businesses to make comparisons of their business banking and particularly, customer card payment charges. So if there’s potential for you to save money by shopping around, what’s stopping you?
You can’t find the time – There are no price comparison sites for business banking and card payment solutions, so you’re staring down the barrel of at least an afternoon and possibly much of your evening, searching the web for good deals. However, 15 minutes on the phone with a UK Business Buddy Associate and a scan or photo of your merchant services statement* is all it really takes. Let us do the hard work, while you mind your own business. *(all completely securely, of course).
It’s too painful to look at finances – You’re not looking, we are! It’s always best to start a journey of improvement by knowing and understanding your numbers. How are you going to measure successful saving without understanding how much you were over-spending to begin with? If it really is painful to look at your numbers right now, we can only advise you to rip off that plaster and start as soon as possible.
Card payment services and business banking are too complicated – All you have to do is show us your latest statement and we will take care of the rest. It can’t get much less complicated than that!
‘I’m not over paying, thank you very much’ – It’s great when the card payment charges from your bank fit within your budget, but there’s always a chance you could be paying even less. We recently spoke to a lady who thought she was paying £19 a month for her card terminal, however upon analysis of the statements, there was a host of hidden expenses she didn’t recognise.
You trust your current card payments provider – UK Business Buddy has 7 acquiring banks we can go to for comparisons. They are world-wide trusted providers, but because there are no ‘meerkats’ for commercial customers, you won’t find them online. We understand that you might have a great relationship with your existing card payment provider, and we wouldn’t want to step on any toes, we just want to make sure you’re getting the best deal for your money, and if you are we’ll tell you.
All our customers enjoy having access to advice and support from their personal Business Associate. UK Business Buddy is an independent business and as such do not rely on call centres, or split the responsibilities between sales departments, installation and after-sale support teams. The person you speak to about your cost comparison, will be the person who installs your new card machines, shows you how to use them and answers the phone for support as your contract progresses.
