MJSA benefit partner targets credit card processing fees


Switching to the new company reaps rewards for almost all members

(ATTLEBORO FALLS, Mass.) - Manufacturing Jewelers and Suppliers of America (MJSA), the U.S. trade association for jewelry makers, designers, and related suppliers, has announced a new credit card processing partnership with Integrity Merchant Solutions, which boasts savings for the vast majority of members.

“Our question to members is whether the monthly credit card processing fee they pay is as low as it can be,” says David Cochran, MJSA president and CEO. “That’s what the representatives at Integrity Merchant Solutions ask all the time when they review a merchant’s statement - and the majority of the time, their review shows the answer is no. That’s why we’re so delighted to bring their services to our members.”

“We are able to show savings on about 80 to 90 percent of the statements we review,” says David Blanco, director of business development at Integrity. “Many processing companies make their statements extremely difficult to read. They combine fees from different months, or they may show the merchant a competitive rate for plain-vanilla consumer cards, but charge higher [and often hidden] rates on rewards cards, keyed transactions, or business or corporate cards. They make it almost impossible for merchants to truly understand the rates they pay.”

Integrity simplifies the switch to its service by offering conversion support, and avoiding a start-up charge, annual fee, or required equipment purchase. It also has no termination penalty, which “we believe is a sign of confidence in our ability to retain customers through sheer satisfaction and savings,” says Blanco. “Our company is in the business of saving people money. We do this primarily by educating our customers and simplifying the process.”

“Integrity’s ability to cut through the tangle of tiered fees, decipher lingo, and deliver potential savings - not to mention its nearly a decade of experience working with jewelry companies - is why MJSA has endorsed Integrity as a new benefit provider for credit card processing,” says Cochran.
