Annual Membership

Who should sign up?

This is designed for a new or existing merchant looking for the best payment service provider for their specific requirements for in-store or online payments.

What are the benefits

Taking up an annual membership provides full access to the website which enables you to:

  • Save time – Instead of taking more than 20 hours to properly research a range of service providers and short list to one or two for a quote, this can now be done in 30 minutes to an hour. We've done all the hard work for you by completing detailed research on each service provider, going through all the relevant pages of their website including operating manuals and support pages, analysing their fee structures, and in many cases speaking to senior executives in each organisation to ensure we clearly understand what they have to offer. We present this information in easy to understand and consistent formats, with search and filter tools to help you make easy comparisons.
  • Save money – Most people don't have the time investigate all the service provider options available to them and so risk selecting a service provider or plan that could cost them hundreds to thousands of dollars more per year or per month than needed. Our pricing calculator tool also allows you to quickly compare the pricing plans of different service providers and products. You can run the pricing calculator as many times as you want with different assumptions, so you can look at different scenarios (e.g peak months or seasons, start-up phase, growth phase).
  • Be confident that you have made the right decision for your business – We are independent and have filtered through the marketing speak found on many websites to give all the information you need in a consistent and easy to follow format. By giving you the tools and resources to assess and compare all the major service providers in the industry you can be confident that you are making an informed decision that meets the requirements of your business.

What’s on offer

Annual membership provides full access to:

  • Quarterly email newsletter – receive updates and news on the latest trends, product developments and special offers on in-store and online payments acceptance.
  • Four (4) benchmarking reports – can be generated at any time during the membership period as your business grows or to separately compare in-store and online payments service providers. The reports enable you to compare your key pricing metrics (e.g. cost per transaction) to other businesses in the same industry or with similar monthly sales. The reports also highlight the service providers that have the best pricing, customer service, features and functionality, and ease of implementation. To generate a report, all that is required is for you to complete a brief 5 to 10 minute online survey.
  • Pricing calculator – enter your payments volume and card mix, select any 4 service providers at a time and view a summary chart and table on how their pricing compares. You can run the calculator as many times as you want comparing different service providers each time.
  • Detailed service provider profiles – view 40+ service provider profiles laid out in an easy to read format that highlights key differentiators and allows you to filter on specific features and functionality critical to your business.
