Saving on B2B Interchange

October 13, 2017

Did you know that by providing just a few extra fields of information on B2B transactions using corporate and purchasing cards, your business can qualify for lower interchange rates? This is often referred to Level 2 and Level 3 data and can result in a significant interchange savings over a typical consumer transaction.

Background

Level 1: This level of processing refers to business-to-consumer (B2C) transactions, during which consumers use their personal credit cards. The data required to process a Level I transaction is small, but the interchange rates are higher.

Level 2: Level 2 credit card processing refers to a more detailed transaction designed to support business-to-business (B2B) payment processing. Commercial accounts often require the ability to monitor and control credit card spending, and Level II processing simplifies these transactions.

Level II transactions can qualify for lower interchange rates. Basically, Visa/MasterCard recognize that if you, as a business, are providing all of this extra information, the sale is more likely to be legitimate. As such, they are willing to provide a lower cost for the sale.

Level 3: This B2B processing takes everything one step further. Most merchants will never have the opportunity to accept Level 3 cards, but if you’re processing a B2B-heavy industry or accept a lot of Government cards, having Level 3 data acceptance may help reduce your interchange costs even further.

How You Can Save

If you regularly process B2B transactions, utilizing Level 2 data will help you achieve savings on interchange rates, typically around 0.50% lower. To accept these transactions, you will either need to have a standalone terminal or processing gateway that allows you to input the extra fields. OMEGA VT, our virtual terminal, can be set up to do this. In addition to information collected in a Level 1 transaction, you will also need to input tax amount, Merchant State and Postal Code, Tax ID information and Merchant Category or SIC code. This can result in a significant annual savings for just a little extra effort — time is money in this case!

To learn more about how Level 2 processing can help your business, contact OMEGA Processing today.

When Should You Start Planning for the Holiday Shopping Season? TODAY

September 13, 2017

The countdown to Black Friday 2018 is on. There’s no need to panic yet, but the best time to start preparing for the upcoming holiday shopping season is NOW.

Gift cards are perennially the most requested holiday gift item. That means getting your gift card program in top shape is definitely a priority. Consider these facts:

  • Over $100 billion is spent annually gift cards
  • A majority of gift card recipients spend an average of 38 percent MORE than the face value of the card. That means a customer coming into your location and using a $25 gift card, will spend, on average, $34.50.
  • Card users are less price sensitive. Consumers are 2.5 times as likely to pay full price for an item when using a gift card.

How can you best leverage your gift card and rewards program to boost your holiday sales? Here are a few tips.

  • Display your cards in top traffic areas, including check out, hostess stands or customer service desks.
  • Include a gift card reminder on sales receipts.
  • Add an incentive to gift card purchases, such as an extra $10 card or a small gift.
  • Host a prize drawing for all shoppers who purchase a gift card.
  • Donate preloaded cards to a local charity, school festival or other community event.
  • Post gift card reminder messages throughout your website.
  • Train and incentivize your staff to sell gift cards, including messaging on name tags, buttons or hats.

There are a lot of gift card programs out there. How does OMEGA’s program stand out in the crowded marketplace? For one thing, OMEGA’s cards also act as a customer loyalty/rewards card. Enroll users in your loyalty program to strengthen ties with the customer.

In addition, we offer professionally designed and customized accessories, such as envelopes, card holders, display stands and signage. And, our program comes with a free mobile app, so you never miss the opportunity for a gift card sale or redemption.
