Merchant Business Solutions

Offering A Competitive Edge
Our consultative sales agents work with merchants so they have value for their processing dollar. We want merchants to understand their processing programs and employ technologies that will enable efficiency, regulatory compliance and processing security. Once merchants are on board and processing with us, our skilled Merchant Relations staff is eager to assist them with any issues or concerns. Our goal is customer satisfaction.

We competitively price our products and services. And, we are pleased to connect with other like-minded leaders in the payment processing industry embracing transparency, fairness and communications with customers.

 

Merchant Assurance Policy

CCI is committed to providing its customers with honest merchant processing at competitive rates. If you are offered a deal that sounds better than ours, call us. We will analyze it based on your actual processing history. We are confident in our ability to be competitive and will show you a side-by-side comparison to prove it.

If during the term of your merchant processing agreement with us, you receive a legitimate written offer – which includes all applicable rates, fees and charges, and without limitation monthly fees, discount fees, surcharges, per item fees, among others — that would result in you paying less per month for your merchant payment processing, CCI will meet or beat that offer or pay you a merchant assurance fee of $100.

Please call our corporate office at (224) 353-6863. We will provide a quick cost comparison on what you currently pay and how it stacks up to any competing offer. We appreciate your business!

The Future Is Now with EMV and NFC

Assisting merchants converting to EMV compliant equipment is a priority, as is explaining new payment technologies such as contactless payment systems like Apple Pay® mobile payments and Google Wallet™ payment service.

Europay MastercardVisa (EMV® specifications)
Designed to reduce counterfeit/fraudulent usage of payment cards worldwide, EMV specifications continue to roll out in the United States. Merchants are vulnerable to the cost of fraudulent charges if they do not employ EMV-ready equipment.

Near Field Communication (NFC)
NFC is a set of communication protocols that enable two electronic devices to exchange data when they are brought close together. One is usually a portable device such as a smartphone.

Security and Compliance
Combined, security and compliance are the No. 1 priority in the merchant services industry. We meet or exceed all industry standards, including Payment Card Industry (PCI), Data Security Standard (DSS) and Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP), and along with our business partners continually seek new measures of security for merchants and cardholders.
