Merchant Processing Audits

If you want to invest in merchant processing audits for your business, call Expense Reduction Analysts at +1 (877) 299-7801.

As most businesses today accept credit cards, a credit card processor is necessary for operating your business. Businesses process credit and debit card transactions through merchant services and processors so customers can pay quickly. However, companies that accept credit cards are subject to high interest rates, credit card fees, and merchant processing fees.

An audit of your business’s monthly ledger can effectively resolve your credit card processing issues. Expense Reduction Analysts evaluate your merchant processing fees statement to find errors in merchant fees and help you save money. Payment processors and banks frequently change their rates and add additional costs, but we can find hidden fees on your merchant documents and help you understand where your money is going.

Your business can save an average of 20% or more on fees from credit card charges with a merchant processing audit. At Expense Reduction Analysts, we are happy to help your business perform expense audits to identify where you can increase monthly savings. Contact us over the phone or via our website to discuss how we can help.

What Is a Merchant Processing Fees Statement?

A merchant processing fees statement is a detailed list of activities between customers’ processed transactions and processing fees. Merchants that accept credit card payments receive a merchant processing document at the end of each month. While these statements can be lengthy, they may contain hidden fees from your processor or bank that drastically reduce savings.

It’s crucial to improve savings by cutting down on transaction fees to avoid a substantial bill. Hiring industry professionals for a credit card processing audit helps reduce the total transaction cost. You can save time and money while learning ways to introduce cost savings strategies.

Expense Reduction Analysts find every fee error or overcharge on your merchant account statement and advise you on where and how to make changes. Our industry knowledge gives us an upper hand in finding benefits in your company transaction activity. Contact us via phone for a credit card audit when you need to reduce your average expenses and save money.

Merchant companies can avoid thousands of dollars in credit card merchant processing expenses with the help of professionals at Expense Reduction Analysts.

We take the stress out of company auditing so you can continue to spread your business name and focus on your clients.

  • Merchant processing fee
  • Service fees

Our monthly analysis services help us gain intel on your credit card payment processor’s setup. Revising your company’s customer payment strategy allows for significant savings while customers continue to have the same experience.
