Evaluation Criteria: Best Credit Card Processing Agent Programs
Residuals
Residuals

For many ISO agents the residuals they can earn from the accounts which they produce are a major factor in determining which ISO to work with. It is vital to have an understanding of what level of residuals are considered competitive. During our analysis, we compare the residuals offered and actually provided to ISO agents compared to the residuals offered by the ISOs most renowned for their agent programs.

Marketing
Marketing

In addition to receiving a cut of the funds based on the accounts they produce, ISO agents require marketing support and collateral in order to be able to connect with and convince potential merchants to sign up for a merchant account. We analyze the amount of marketing assistance and collateral is provided to agents in order to assist them in attracting and obtaining a variety of merchants.

Customer Support
Support

When agents are in the process of promoting the services being offered, it is important to have access to support professionals capable of handling any concerns which potential merchants may have in specific case scenarios. In addition, agents require a support team produced by the ISO which can handle the accounts being obtained in order to prevent the agents from having to support the merchant themselves.

Variance
Variety

We believe it is important for ISOs to offer their agents a variety of options and solutions to merchants which are looking for payment processing or merchant services. Having a variance in solutions will provide the agent with a level of flexibility for what they are able to offer to their merchants while ensuring that the ISO will be able to maximize the potential of the account and profit from the relationship.

Equipment Quality
Equipment

We also analyze the availability and quality of the equipment offered to merchants being introduced through an ISO agent outside of the ISO’s own marketing initiatives. It is important for agents to have access to quality equipment for the merchants they are connecting with and to be able to provide the equipment at a reasonable price with the right expectations and factual specifications relating to the equipment.
