Whether it be an FTE or a Consultant.

All we are hearing about in news articles is how retailers are closing stores. Brick and Mortar is not cutting it for the consumers we are today, in many cases. But are these retailers ready to be 100% online? Do they have a full-time payment professional? Someone to fill the gaps between reconciliation and engineering teams on payment projects? Is someone watching your chargebacks? Do you have a fraud tool for your ecommerce…because you MUST have one of those these days; thank you, EMV shift.

Payment Professionals are for those enormous, huge billion dollar businesses, or so you thought. There is such a thing as payment professional consultants. Pay as you go. You want a project that includes helping your business go global? You want to install that fraud tool, but don’t understand how it works? (Or is supposed to work?). Do you need help reconciling? You want to know what rates you’re paying to process those payment methods? Do you want MORE payment methods? Consultants can help you with all of these things, at your pace, at the right time for you.

If you have a full-time payment professional, congratulations! Do they go to industry conferences and learn about all of the new ideas and payment methods? Regulations? Are they coming up with new fresh ideas? Did they grow up in Card Not Present or are they scurrying to catch up?

Payment consultants can help, as corny as it sounds. Think about it…if you worked for 5 different business types in one month, how many different methods and business tactics would you learn? THAT’S WHAT THEY DO. They have a plethora of ideas, because at some point they customized it for someone. Let them customize it for your business.

There is so much to having a payment professional, whether it be full time or a consultant. Fresh eyes and fresh ideas are always welcomed by businesses that want to grow.

Payment Operations Group is a consultancy of Payment Professionals who ran away from home to join the circus. But seriously, if you would like to pursue a Strategy for your processing future or any payment engagement at all, contact information is provided below.
