FPB and Accept help SMEs with merchant services charges

The Forum of Private Business (FPB) is helping small businesses cut adrift by the providers of credit card merchant services or struggling with the cost of processing card payments.

The FPB has joined forces with Accept Cards Ltd (ACL) in order to reduce the expense of taking card payments and the hassle of seeking out alternative providers.

Members of the FPB already accepting card payments make an average saving of 30% via ACL, with no joining fees for switching to an alternative acquiring bank. Members of the FPB new to cards save an average of £465.

In addition, ACL provides independent advice on all areas of card processing, and a choice of providers and terminals with flexible rental terms.
