Merchant Card Services Now Available At CCU!
Merchant Card Services allows business owners to accept credit cards (VISA, Master Card, Amex or Discover) or Debit Cards for products and/or services provided! This service will allow your business to grow and keep up in today's tech savvy word!
Let's look at an example of how this service may be used . . . I own my own nail salon. Merchant Card Services allows my customers to use credit and debit cards at my nail salon for purchases they have made. At the end of the day, all of my customer's credit and debit card transactions are electronically submitted in a batch as a credit to my checking account that will be credited the following business day.
