The National Portable Storage Association (NPSA), a nonprofit membership association dedicated to the advancement of the portable storage industry, has partnered with Merchant Essentials (ME) Payment Solutions. ME Payment solutions is the only NPSA preferred credit card processor.
"We are proud to partner with ME Payment Solutions, and we encourage all NPSA members to take advantage of the power that comes with 'group buying'," said John Finnessy, CMP, Executive Director of the NPSA. "Many of our members, including Mobile Mini, Martec and Moveable Cubicle are seeing the benefits of credit card processing with ME Payment Solutions already."
There are many benefits to accepting credit cards, including increased profit. Credit cards allow customers who don't have enough cash on hand to complete the transaction. Credit cards can also help with cash flow by reducing late payments. Accepting credit cards can also lower a portable storage company's overhead because it costs less to accept a credit card than it does to create, print and mail an invoice.
Merchant accounts are not expensive to set up, even for smaller organizations. Electronic payments have indeed become an affordable option and portable storage companies of all sizes are tapping into the many benefits of accepting credit cards as a form of payment.
"If you are doing business in the 21st Century, a merchant account is a must-have," said NPSA Operations Manager Joel Rathbone. “Because the NPSA has a partnership with ME Payment Systems, are members are assured the best possible pricing. By tapping into these bulk rates, NPSA members can save a bundle while leveraging all the benefits of accepting credit cards."
