Alternatives Federal Credit Union has partnered with Newtek, The Small Business Authority to provide your business with a complete menu of payment acceptance options.
Newtek, The Small Business Authority will pay $250* to your business if we cannot meet or beat your “true effective rate” from your current merchant processing provider.
Rate and price comparisons are based upon the calculations provided by Newtek Merchant Solutions. The most recent two (2) month’s credit card processing statements are required to calculate the “true effective rate.” Pricing comparison applies to Visa®, MasterCard®, and Discover Network® credit card processing rates and other normal monthly fees only, but not to include one-time set up, hardware or software fees.
Select business types are not eligible for the $250 Meet or Beat Offer. Ineligible business types include, but are not limited to: travel agents, ticket brokers, airline tickets, debt consolidation/collection services, dating services, online dating sites, financial consulting, recurring billing or continuity merchants, computer software sales, discount clubs, or custom furniture retailers. The $250 will be paid in the form of a check within 45 days. Limit one offer per merchant relationship/business entity.
*If Newtek cannot meet or beat your current merchant processing program cost, you will receive a $250 check. Check will be provided to the Alternatives Federal Credit Union member by Newtek within 45 days of initial consultation.
Offer is only available to new Newtek Merchant Solutions – The Small Business Authority customers.
