New York, NY (PRWEB) October 26, 2011

Subuno, a fraud screening software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, and MaxMind, a leading provider of IP geolocation and online fraud detection solutions, today announce a partnership to integrate MaxMind’s geolocation and IP reputation risk scoring services into Subuno.

Under the partnership, Subuno will integrate various MaxMind services, including GeoIP Country Web Service and minFraud fraud detection,into Subuno’s fraud screening SaaS platform.

Within Subuno’s platform, merchants will also have the ability to leverage MaxMind’s data for each transaction or on-demand.

“Subuno’s SaaS rules engine is very easy to use and does not require any code to be written,” said Jason Ketola, Business Development Manager at MaxMind. “With this partnership, more small and medium size businesses with limited IT or development resources will be able to build rules around our IP reputation fraud detection solution.”

In addition, MaxMind’s minFraud Network, which consists of thousands of merchants worldwide, allows merchants to protect each other by indirectly sharing non-personally identifiable risk factors.

“MaxMind is the leader in IP geolocation and IP reputation based fraud detection data,” said Ed Lin, co-founder of Subuno, “We are excited to offer their data solutions within our fraud screening SaaS platform.”

Education Is Key To Signing A Merchant Service Agreement

For those of you that know us, we are a huge advocate of educating merchants and giving them the power to make informative business decisions when it comes to credit card processing for their businesses. We have heard all the gimmicks and the horror stories. Well we’re here to try to debunk some of the confusion and the gimmicks and hopefully share some education. Let me start with those pesky telemarketers. Agents hire them to set appointments. If you own a business your probably on the “list”! Automotive industries are hit the hardest.

The agents will ask for certain industries that they market to or specialize in. These telemarketers are reading from scripts, promising you low rates. I especially enjoy the ones that tell you that they are offering you “wholesale” rates or since you have not had any chargebacks they can lower your rates. There are no “wholesale” rates. Visa and Mastercard Interchange (cost) rates are published on their websites. All providers pay Interchange (cost). It’s all the “other” costs where the provider makes their profit. Let me add that there is not a national database that all providers share. One company can not see another company’s information on any merchant account. So if you are talking to someone that claims something different, I say hang up the phone!! The rates a provider charges you can get confusing. Agents that sell your merchant account aren’t necessarily lying to you they just aren’t DISCLOSING all the fine print. So READ the fine print!! All contracts by law have to have all costs disclosed but whether or not you know what you’re reading and looking for is the problem. (Please see my previous blog on our website to understand the two different ways to price merchants.) One, of the top tricks, is to offer a low rate. It looks really great. The merchant signs the contract thinking that all of the transactions will process at that rate! Wrong! They aren’t disclosing all of the rates!

There are three rates that need disclosed! Ask for them!

Credit and Debit cards swipe at the same rate Wrong! Swiped debit transactions cost less than a swiped credit transaction. This is where agents can be deceptive. They will advertise or “sell” that low swiped debit rate but sadly to say you probably won’t see that rate. In order to get debit pricing, your account has to be set up for it or you have to be on an Interchange pricing plan. The only exception to this is if the agent is pricing the merchant below cost. However, this typically means the agent has increased the downgrades fees or is charging you other fees to make up for the loss. I don’t know too many people that will give away something for nothing!

]]>

Rates and fees disclosed in my contract are locked Wrong! Interchange costs increase and the providers have to adjust to those rising costs. Within the contracts, it gives them the ability to increase your rates and fees to adjust for those increases. Providers can pass on other fees that increase as well, such as statement fees, PCI compliance fees, etc. They pass on the cost of doing business just like any other business will do. Interchange rates generally change in the spring and fall. Your credit card provider should notify you in your statement prior to an increase. So read your statements!!

My contract turns to a month to month after my contract term is over Wrong! Some contracts will renew automatically for another term. Typically if you are in a contract you will have to give 30 days written notice that you are opting out of the service at the end of your contract date.

My bank offers me better rates and services Wrong! Don’t assume a big bank is either better or more ethical or has less costs. Most big banks outsource all their services which can result in higher fees.

After my lease contract is fulfilled, I will own my machine Wrong! First, unless you are extremely tight on initial start up money don’t sign a lease! A lease agreement locks you into a term of payments, typically 3 to 5 years, and when the term is fulfilled you have to pay a buy out or give the machine back. The buy out is almost what the machine cost in the first place. You can end up paying thousands of dollars for a machine that probably cost a few hundred in the first place. You can not get out of a lease after it is confirmed!! This is the number one horror story I hear about!! They will lead you to believe it is a rental or they tell you after the contract is finished you own it. Not true!! Some miscellaneous fees you may see on your statements are shown below. These fees are not bogus. They are legitimate costs that are incurred on a merchant account.

Authorization fees (or transaction fees) are typically from $ .19 to.30. These are typical costs associated with any merchant account.
Batch fees are costs that associated with closing the terminal out. This fee is a way to generate revenue on an account. The cost to the provider is minimal but it is a revenue generating stream.
AVS is an address verification system fee. Your account has to be set up to run AVS. If you aren’t inputting the address into your terminal but getting charged this fee you should check with your provider. Again, this is a revenue generation stream for the provider. The cost to the provider is minimal.
Decline fees There are providers out there that will charge you for a transaction getting declined. Decline fees can be costly for online merchants because they tend to have more declined transactions due to fraudulent attempts. This is a additional source of revenue for the provider but the cost to them is minimal.
Voice authorization fees Providers will charge for a voice authorization or an automated authorization because your terminal is down or the card won’t go through. Again, another source of revenue to the provider but the cost to them is minimal.

 

Monthly minimum fees are based on gross processing volume Wrong! This fee refers to the fees paid by the merchant to the provider. They don’t refer to the volume on the account. For example, if a merchant has a monthly minimum fee of , the merchant must accrue at least in fees or they will be charged the difference between their actual fees and the minimum fee. Besides the true processing charges, the transaction fee (authorization fees), statement fee, PCI compliance and possibly a monthly minimum charge the rest is just ways to generate revenue. I’m not saying these fees are wrong, I’m just saying be informed! They can be used to negotiate your contracts. Buyer beware! Don’t be one to get caught up in the gimmicks and scams!
