Verisave Merchant Services Review: Talech

Talech offers a great system for accepting credit and debit card payments in any situation be it a physical store location, phone order, or online storefront. Talech’s POS software is design specifically for retailers and restaurants. While not being our top recommendation for large corporations, it’s a great tool for small to mid-sized businesses.

Talech’s developers have created a POS system that includes in-house marketing tools, advanced inventory features, and the capability to integrate with most payment processors.

Most businesses accept credit cards as a form of payment from their customers, especially in retail stores and restaurants. However, the credit card processing industry is complex and the fees for these services are often unnecessarily high. Many businesses simply accept fees associated with credit card processing as a “cost of doing business” with no attempt to understand and reduce them. Verisave helps to reduce these fees with simple strategies developed through years of practice and implementation. If you’re looking for a change in POS providers, speak with Verisave to see how much you could save by restructuring your merchant account.

Paying for your POS system is only one fee among many involved in credit card processing. Looking at your merchant account statement is a clear indication that there are many players in this game. Most financial executives we speak with do not truly understand their credit card statements where their fees go. Structuring your merchant accounts to lower your monthly fees is possible when you know where to look and with whom you should speak. We have found that businesses that engage an auditing firm generally pay 25% lower fees than their industry counterparts and save significantly more per month than do those who go about it alone.

Talech Contract Lengths

Talech does not trap their customers into lengthy contracts and they do not charge a fee for canceling services. However, they do offer an incentive for paying for their services on a yearly basis instead of monthly.

One thing in particular that Talech seems to do better than most of their competitors is working the bugs out of their systems and improving their services on a regular basis.
