Kirkwood Inn Celebrated as OMEGA MVP

kirkwood inn breakfast-blend-larger - Copy (2) - Copy

Nestled between Mason and Lebanon in Southwestern Ohio, you’ll discover the enchanting inn and centuries old colonial home that is Kirkwood Inn. This charming country inn, along with the on-site Kirkwood House offer a historic atmosphere, scenic landscapings and updated personal accommodations as a charming alternative to the everyday hotel chains.

Family owned and operated since 2002, Sandra and David Eves opened Kirkwood Inn after recognizing the home’s historical significance. They transformed the on-site 1970s-style roadside motel into a fully renovated 48-room country inn. Each morning, guests are treated to a complimentary breakfast buffet in the Historic Kirkwood House.

kirkwood-inn-mason-ohio-3Built in 1799, Associate Judge Jacob D. Lowe opened his two story, colonial home as a farmhouse inn to accommodate travelers. The inn quickly became a routine stopping point for politicians like Congressman Henry Clay, traveling to and from Washington D.C.  Soon after, Postmaster William Kirkwood opened a post office at the farmhouse, saving locals a half day trip to pick up mail, and sealing the home’s spot in history.

Today, the Eves continue to restore many of the home’s original features, keeping the authenticity alive, yet updating to modern conveniences.

“The Inn is a wonderful family-owned alternative to large hotel chains,” Sandra Eves, owner of Kirkwood Inn said. “Where travelers seeking comfort, value and a historical atmosphere can come and enjoy their stay.”

Step outdoors to find six acres of scenic landscapekirkwood inn new-gazebo-couple where guests can stroll, sit, eat, or just be. Whether at their seasonal pool or brick patio, or at a covered picnic table or white gazebo, Kirkwood Inn’s park-like grounds are filled with places to go. Throughout their gardens and trails, you’ll find a wide variety of flowers and wildlife.

Whether you’re looking for a wedding venue, taking a family trip to Kings Island (just 2 ½ miles away!), or are in need of a couples getaway, Kirkwood Inn is one vacation you’ll never forget.

Kirkwood Inn has been the recipient of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award since 2013.

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.
