Merchant Advocate helps businesses save money on credit processing, WITHOUT SWITCHING PROCESSORS!

Merchant Advocate will:

✔ – Negotiate lower rates
✔ – Eliminate hidden fees
✔ – Fix coding errors
✔ – Monitor your account every month


Merchant Advocate is NOT a credit card processing company. MA’s approach to payment processing is VERY DIFFERENT than a traditional payment processing company that wants to SWITCH your merchant services business. MA is NOT suggesting that any company change from their merchant services’ processor. MA is an “expense auditor” company that partners with clients and helps to expose the hidden and excessive fees that are not transparent in the unregulated credit card processing industry. MA uses a three-step process without changing your systems1) Analyze: Merchant Advocate will review your statement at NO charge to uncover inflated rates, hidden fees, and any coding errors. 

2) Adjust: Merchant Advocate will negotiate with the processors on your behalf to reduce your rates and eliminate hidden fees. 

3) Audit: Merchant Advocate will monitor your statements monthly to watch for rising rates and additional fees to ensure savings throughout the year.
