Accepting credit cards is a must for small businesses. If you only accept cash, you're missing out on sales big time. But for many business owners, the hardest part is choosing a credit card processor. With hundreds of credit card processors available and with the many ways businesses can accept credit cards, it's easy to feel like you're in over your head.
The best credit card processor is one designed with your small business's unique needs in mind. It not only allows you to pick and choose the types of services that are best suited for your products and services, but is also budget friendly and doesn't enforce stringent requirements or restrictions just because you're a small company.
Here is a roundup of our best picks and how we chose them.
Flagship Merchant Services is an all-in-one credit card processing solution that has everything you need to accept credit cards at your small business. The company offers a merchant account and a wide range of credit card processing options, including in-person, online and mobile credit card processing. If you need a more advanced solution, you also have the choice of using a full-featured iPad POS system. We also like Flagship because it comes with an easy application process, 24-7 customer support, and no long-term contracts or early termination fees.
