LIGHTNING RELEASES (2/5/2014) – The Question:  In today’s techno world what’s the best option for a non-retail business to collect from their customers?  The answer:  eCheck21.  Non-retail businesses have relied on virtually the same payment processing methods as retail stores.  This, of course, presents various problems because the customer is not present, hence the name: Customer Non-Present Transactions.  But yet banks and credit card processors have forced businesses with back office payment processing to use the same payment products, making it much more expensive to process transactions.  As we continue to see the credit card processing fees increase, businesses are desperately trying to find better ways to process their invoice collections.  An option now available to all non-retailers is:  eCheck21.  It’s an ACH format transaction using a Check21 settlement.  This means that you can capture the information you need from your client electronically over the phone, and have your payment enter your account on the same day.  This makes eCheck21 far superior than  a standard ACH collection.  When comparing the cost savings of eCheck21 with credit card transactions, the savings can be as much as 80% for a business.
