A CUSTOMER FIRST MENTALITY
In the ever changing world of payment processing you need more than just a processor. You need a genuine partner with the experience, knowledge and the expertise to navigate through increasing complexities. J & A Business Solutions over delivers on all of these, every time.
NO HIDDEN MERCHANT SERVICE FEE’S
Client retention is everything to our team, which drives us to continually exceed OUR customers expectations. We do this because we feel it’s the right thing to do and we strive to continually exceed client expectations. Many service providers may give you a great rate, but then add fees to every statement that add up to more than what you were paying prior and that eats into your profits hurting your bottom line. Not to mention the fact that this act of padding transactions is illegal and they are stealing from you.
We find this practice unethical and won’t do it!! With J&A Business Solutions, you own your data and we refuse to hold our client’s hostage with hardball tactics. We are here with a team of exceptionally experienced integration experts that will make the transition and migration of your processing stress free and seamless.
