Hayward, WI - In northern Wisconsin, it is very difficult to find a local merchant services provider, merchant services agent or merchant services ISO (independent sales office). The ISO agents are from Minneapolis MN, Green Bay Wisconsin or Milwaukee Wisconsin.
That's quite the haul if you're located in Eau Claire Wisconsin, Rice Lake Wisconsin, Hayward Wisconsin, Minocqua Wisconsin, Ashland Wisconsin or even Duluth, Minnesota.
Fortunately, Electronic Payments Inc., has recently provided an opportunity for ISO Agent, Curtis DeCora, to launch Electronic Payments Lake Superior to service northern Wisconsin.
Electronic Payments Lake Superior is a new sales office under the Electronic Payments umbrella. Electronic Payments is an Inc 5000 5X Honoree and recently featured in Inc magazine for the massive growth experienced in the most recent years. This new partnership provides an opportunity to gain access to the latest and great technology, services and offerings from Electronic Payments Inc., while also enjoying the presence of a local in-person representative. It’s truly the best of both worlds to have a local office present in Northern Wisconsin to bridge the gap between tech giants, and local business specialists.
Electronic Payments Lake Superior is owned and operated by Curtis DeCora, a tribal member from the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa and 40-under-40 Award winner from the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development, as well as recipient of the Service Excellence Nomination from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, Northern Wisconsin's Local Businessperson of the Year Award by Alignable, award-winning author, and multiple award winner for digital marketing services.
Credit Card Processing Services
Any company will process your payments on a flat rate like Square, Paypal, Stripe or even GoDaddy. You'll experience an effective rate of 5%+. Some will tell you to add a 5% charge to your receipts to ensure that you're "passing the fee" to your customers. Unfortunately, there are a lot of non-compliant practices that are misleading merchants like you and me into fines ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 from Visa, Mastercard or Discover.
Where the rubber meets the road isn't placing credit card terminals and processing your payments. In 2023, the rubber meets the road with compliance, security, and payment optimization.
The programs like Dual Pricing, Cash Discounting, and Surcharging all business owners to drastically reduce some of their largest business expenses while also keeping their profit margins in check.
Point of Sale Systems
Electronic Payments, Inc. has their very own POS System, the Exatouch POS, which includes a wide range of capabilities for food service business like fine dining, restaurants, or food trucks, and come with a great deal of retail applications for grocery stores, deli-style businesses, and convenience stores - to name a few. Electronic Payments builds, programs, tests and deploys all of these units in-house before shipping. There is no 800# to call, just contact Electronic Payments Lake Superior for any service or training needs as it relates to the Exatouch POS system.
Local Support and Service
Knowing your customers is vital to Electronic Payments Lake Superior’s vision. Most customers are now friends. “It’s a true ‘shop local’ experience. You go to the fish market, and the fish market is a customer,” DeCora says. “Taking the kids out to dinner on a Friday night and the restaurant is a customer using the POS System I set up for them is a great feeling.” You really don’t see Square, Paypal, Stripe, Heartland or other large companies walking into your place of business to dine, have a drink, or do some shopping.
We're your neighbor; we live, work and play in the very neighborhoods we provide services to. This is the cornerstone of what makes Electronic Payments Lake Superior your best bet for a payment processing partner in the Lake Superior region.
Grow Your Business
Very few payment processing companies will talk about how payment technologies can help you grow your business. Our payment technology can help you integrate customer loyalty and patronage programs into your daily operations. Track your customers' sales and reward them for repeat visits. Businesses are growing by as much as 25% with a strong customer loyalty and rewards program.
Industry standards indicate that repeat business accounts for up to 65% of your total revenue. That implies that we're constantly chasing 35% with costly advertising, marketing, and promotional programs that may include newspaper, radio, visitor guides or other costly mediums. Additionally, it is 500% more costly to find a new customer than it is to keep a current customer happy and coming in repeatedly.
These are the statistics your payment partner should be sharing with you, and helping you come up with programs to help reduce your expenses associated with bringing customers in through the door. To learn more about Electronic Payments Lake Superior visit www.LowerYourFees.us.
