TIMESTAMPS

[00:01:35] Positive Energy in Business.

[00:08:15] Level Playing Field in Payments.

[00:11:44] Personalized Approach in Retail.

[00:16:58] Having a Physical Storefront.


In this episode, Kevin Spencer and Eduardo Alvarez emphasize the importance of being a direct point of contact for their clients, rather than having them call a generic 1-800 number or wait for a response. They believe that building a personal relationship with their clients and being readily available to help them sets them apart from their competition.


Furthermore, Kevin and Eduardo emphasize that the merchant service industry operates on a level playing field. This means that companies of all sizes, whether processing a large or small volume of transactions, pay the same interchange rates. This equalization of interchange rates ensures that all businesses, regardless of size, have an equal opportunity to compete in the industry. They also mention that their company competes with larger companies and continues to win business by offering better optimization, fee savings, and improved payment processing solutions to underserviced merchants.
