Onboarding Large Merchants with Electronic Check Processing

Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Sat, Nov 04, 2017 @ 07:00 AM

Before the ink even dries on new merchant contracts, CrossCheck shifts into high gear to setup the accounts and ensure they are operational. The heavy lifting is carried out by the Account Implementation and Retail Systems Support departments with help from the Sales or Partner Relations departments as needed. The goal, of course, is for merchants to start processing checks as soon as possible in order to increase sales, mitigate risk and simplify transactions.

The onboarding process varies as a function of the services chosen by the merchant, the size of the merchant and whether or not it has multiple locations processing checks.

Declined Checks by Competing Companies

Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Wed, Jun 14, 2017 @ 01:37 PM

CrossCheck has two telesales offices as well as field representatives all over the country who provide payment solutions to auto dealerships, dental and veterinary offices, home furnishings stores, building supply centers, specialty retailers and other merchants.

Those sales people talk to hundreds of merchants daily about increasing sales with effective check processing services. On any given day, at least one of them will hear a merchant say, “Our current guarantee company doesn’t decline too many checks, only the big ones.” The dialogue continues.

Electronic Check Processing and Other Banking Choices

Posted by Brandes Elitch on Thu, Oct 20, 2016 @ 04:00 PM

Today I read an article by Alessandra Malito called, “Why it still takes so long for checks to clear — and what you can do about it” with the subtitle, “Sometimes a good old-fashioned paper check can feel like it takes an eternity to clear.”

In her opening arguments in the case against paper checks, Malito says, “For all their seeming simplicity, checks can get complicated — there are numerous ways they can be processed, and even if a check clears quickly through electronic processing that doesn’t necessarily mean the funds are immediately available.”

Later in the indictment, Malito dismisses banks as being “usually known for their archaic technology.” Seriously, it would be hard to find a more cliché-ridden, off-base and inaccurate picture of how checks are processed.

Finding a New Payment Solutions Company When Yours Closes

Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Tue, Sep 13, 2016 @ 02:23 PM

At one time or another, nearly everyone needs to deal with the closing of their favorite establishment or the discontinuation of a go-to product. The local pancake house goes under; the small manufacturer of an effective cleaning agent sells to a conglomerate that jacks up the price; or the producer of a soft drink changes its age-old formula. But what if the favorite product happens to be the payment solutions company that your organization has used for a number of years?

The short answer is “don’t panic and don’t jump on the first ship that passes by.” Now is the time to act quickly, but decisively. It's very possible that your replacement check processing company will be equipped with a silver lining that can increase profits.

CrossCheck Premiums: the Better Widget of Check Processing Services

Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Thu, Jul 21, 2016 @ 04:00 PM

Most new products or services enjoy an extended honeymoon sans any competition for several years or even decades. Given enough time, however, they are often replaced with “new and improved widgets” that provide even greater utility to consumers and businesses.

The founder of CrossCheck developed “the better widget” of check processing services in 1983 after receiving a pitch for check guarantee services while operating a record store. Per “The History of CrossCheck in the Payments Industry,” he was dissatisfied with the approach that was presented to him, so he created his version of Standard Check Guarantee to improve the existing model.

Stop Talking About Yourself: Praise for Our Check Processing Services

Posted by Isabella Passey on Tue, Jul 12, 2016 @ 04:00 PM

Listening to others talk about themselves can be exhausting, so sometimes it’s best to stop talking and just let others do it for us. The same holds true in social and traditional media where third-party endorsements are way more powerful than advertising when it comes to reaching people and making a connection. We are well aware of all these parameters. Thus, instead of telling you about our suite of payment solutions covering a variety of industries, we’ll just let our customers do it for us.
