The payments and especially the financial industry can seem a mind field to navigate at times, especially if you are a business new to the industry. We often find businesses who are looking to start taking payment online or just want to re-asses the tools they use to manage their money, say there is so much information out there but it can be daunting to know where to go and who to trust.
With so many much needed changes on the horizon arising from the banking reforms, it seems that banks, who businesses have traditionally relied on for their business bank accounts and indeed merchant accounts may not always be the safest or most value for money option out there.
So with that in mind, I am going to be writing a series of blogs on how to navigate the payments industry, with practical advice on where businesses can find useful information, what solutions are out there, and most importantly how to gain value for money services to improve cash flow.
Watch the space for next week’s blog post!
