The future of your company, be it a small store or a multinational corporation, depends on how you do business. No business is too big to fail or too small to succeed. It all depends on how you do business. How you do business, and who you do business with.
Choosing the wrong manufacturer, the wrong courier company, the wrong IT staff, the wrong marketing firm, it can do a lot of damage. Lost packages, tone-deaf TV ads, security breaches, the headlines are full of stories detailing companies losing a lot of trust with the public not because the company itself dropped the ball, but because they chose to work with another company that dropped the ball. Choosing the right people to do business is just as important as any other aspect of running a business.
The Best Retail Merchant Services
You know how to keep your customers happy, but does your distributor?
Does your web designer?
Does your payment processor?
All retail stores are unique, they all have different needs, different strengths and weaknesses, they focus on different products and services, they appeal to different demographics. But there is one thing that all but a select few have in common, and that is the need for a safe, efficient, economical and easy payment processing system. A processing system that can handle consumer preferences. Whether your customers prefer credit, debit, EBT, gift card, or checks, Maverick makes it all possible and seamless.
Why Your Retail Store Should Use Maverick BankCard
When your retail store uses Maverick, your company’s payment processing systems will run efficiently and securely. Our payment systems will enhance your business flow so that your management and staff will be able to focus on interacting with customers and keeping the business in shape while we take care of your processing. In other words, we do our job so you can do yours!

Save More money
Growth is great, but creating a sustainable business has less to do with the money you’re making than it has to do with profit margins. This means that long-term success might not be found in expanding your market share or increasing your sales (at least not just yet). Long-term success might mean spending less, not earning more. One way to improve your profit margin is by cutting costs that can affect the quality of your product. This will generally cost you, customers. The other way is to look at where money is being simply wasted. You can save money with Maverick’s low-cost retail credit card processing fees and free retail credit card terminal program. Already processing? We will provide a no-obligation analysis to show how we can save. This will allow you to improve your profit margins in a way that won’t cut into the quality of the work that you do. And if you do hope to grow, if you’d like to open up a new location, that extra money you’re saving scales. Every multinational brand that started small, they only succeeded in the long run because they set an efficient, sustainable blueprint back when they were just a small business.
Increase customer service
Happy customers are the foundation of any successful business. Focus on creating satisfied customers, and you’re halfway there. Unfortunately, a happy customer can become an unhappy customer very quickly through no fault of yours. You charge a fair price for a great product, your staff is always very friendly, you keep all of their favorite items in stock. But, maybe their credit card information gets stolen by a hacker, or a payment takes a week to come out of their account, by which time they’ve forgotten all about it, or your payment processor doesn’t accept EBT, and it’s not your fault, it’s the payment processor that dropped the ball. This is why it’s so important to make sure that the services you rely on are there for you and your customer. Improve customer satisfaction and experience with quick, safe, efficient checkouts and advanced credit card processing terminals that include EMV and Apple Pay/NFC payments along with credit, debit, EBT and gift card acceptance.
Payment processing can be a bit of a minefield, legally speaking. It’s not uncommon to hear of companies getting into trouble nor for deliberately defrauding anyone, but because they simply did not know what was expected of them. PCI-compliance is a bit like the tax code: It can be a bit confusing, but you can get into some very hot water for not adhering to it. That’s why we’re here to worry about it for you. With PCI-compliant terminals and easy-to-use PCI validation tools, your business will be handling card data in such a way as to adhere to the strictest requirements.
Branding goes a long way. Using Visa and American express stickers will serve a functional purpose in letting your customers know which cards you accept. But, beyond this, it simply instills confidence in your store to display these logos in the window or elsewhere. It’s a relatively simple trick, but it works. Seeing those stickers triggers something in the customer’s brain that says “This is a legitimate business, not some shady corner store or fly by night pop up.” You can increase buyer confidence by displaying card logos for all of the credit cards and payment options that your business accepts. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover offer free credit card stickers, decals, and signage for you to display on your store window or at the checkout. Order free Visa, MasterCard, Interlink and Plus Mark acceptance decals here; order free MasterCard and Maestro acceptance decals; order free American Express decals, signage, and supplies here; order free Discover decals, signage and supplies here; order free JCB decals and signage here.
You have a lot of choices to make in running a business. There is no industry, no field, no specialty that is as simple as it may seem from the outside. Running a fresh produce store, for example, doesn’t just mean finding a supplier and some commercial real estate. A produce seller has to hire staff, they have to be FDA-compliant, they need to oversee advertising on radio, television and the internet, they need to learn how to manage their taxes as a business owner and so on and so forth. Running a business, any business is a lot more complicated than one might think, and every day it seems like there are a dozen new choices that need to be made.
One of those choices: Who are you going to trust with your payment processing?
