Check Solutions for Specialty Stores

Marketing research shows that customers place as much value on the service a business provides as they do on the products that they sell. Welcoming customers to pay for the purchases by check is one of the best services a business can offer. By encouraging more good checks you help minimize the high costs in taking credit cards. Statistically, only 1% of all checks are dishonored, couple this with an average of 75% recovery by CheckMate, and loss on checks is minuscule.

Whereas, credit card discount fees together with transaction fees reaching over 6%, eat away at already low profit margins, with no opportunity to recoup those fixed costs. To make matters worse, when credit card fraud occurs there is little or no chance of recovering your monies. With the complexity of balancing a bank statement riddled with daily ACH transactions, many times businesses are completely unaware of their losses or costs regarding credit cards.

By encouraging checks, you're adding monies directly to your bottomline.

Our CheckMate program includes:.

  • Bank Authorization for quick reporting/processing of dishonored check
  • ACCESS Electronic Check Verification
  • Consolidated Check Returns to minimize bank fees.
  • Check Recovery is provided at NO COST to our members
  • Electronic Check Clearing Services via ACH
  • Second Placement Processing
  • Fraud Services
