Step 1: Classification Review
Before we do anything else, we make sure your account is set up correctly under the right industry type. This might sound trivial, but it's actually an effective way to safeguard your account and maximize your savings. Ensuring accurate set up minimizes the financial risk you would otherwise be exposed to if your account was set up with an industry misclassification. This is something that can happen with processors who don't understand your business. So, beware of rock-bottom prices and companies that don't take the time to review your account. It can cost you more money in the long run.
Step 2: Side-By-Side Comparison
There aren't many payment processing companies that will take the time to review your bills to uncover hidden fees and price increases that hike your expenses up unnecessarily — but that's what we do. We commit to a thorough review of your monthly bills to pinpoint fees you can either lower or get rid of entirely by switching to BAMS. Our side-by-side comparison is a can't-lose solution. Either we save you money, or you stick with what you already have. (Spoiler alert: We will save you money!)
Step 3: Check for Updated Regulations
Like every other part of business, the regulatory environment governing payments and payment processing changes from time to time. When that happens, many other payment processors fail to adjust your account to keep up with the benefits new regulations offer. Our price comparison process ensures that you're getting the full advantage of the latest pricing regulations available to maximize your savings.
Step 4: Review Your Payment Acceptance Setup
It's easy to focus on the types of cards you accept and overlook the importance of your point of sale terminal or payment gateway. But the truth is, how you accept payments is often just as important to your bottom line. That's why our analysts review your current method before making recommendation to help lower your expenses. We're committed to saving you as much as possible in all aspects of the process.
Step 5: You Request a Quote
Once the rest of the review is complete, it's time to get a quote specific to your business to see how BAMS will stack up against the cost of your existing system. We said it before, and we'll say it again: It's a win-win. Our analysts will review what you're paying now to see where you can save money, and you can compare that to what BAMS costs. If our services don't wow you and if BAMS doesn't save you money while providing value-added features to boost your business, you can stay with what you have.

Our 5-Step Price Comparison
Our five-step process starts with you submitting your current merchant statement to us. This detailed document typically gives you a detailed breakdown of all the customer transaction you've processed and the associated fees. They also usually give you a detailed summary of the fees paid to MasterCard, Visa and other networks along with a deposit summary, transaction count and other details that give you a good picture of your payment processing picture.
Ideally, you’re already reviewing this every month. But, if you’re like many businesses, you might be overwhelmed by all the details and shy away from really looking at it. That’s where we come into the picture. We do an in-depth analysis of all the rates and fees you’re currently paying. We go line by line to figure out which items we can reduce or get rid of to save you maximum bucks without sacrificing the service you need.
