Aren’t all processors the same?

Absolutely not. There are a myriad of processors available today, and no two are the same. Here with schmooze inc. and Nationwide Payments, we work extremely hard each day to separate ourselves from the pack by offering services that the other simple don’t: 24/7/365 technical support, guaranteed lowest rates, highly-trained and professional customer service and much more.

What is your Rate Guarantee?

Regardless of who you are processing through currently, you are charged a fee every time you process a transaction. These rates are set by your processor and are often highly inflated. Our rate guarantee assures you that our version of this per-transaction rate will be the lowest in the industry. If you receive a quote from a competitor, we will happily match and do our best to beat that rate.

Why choose schmooze inc. and not my bank?

Would you call a credit card processing company to open a checking or savings account? Of course not…you call your bank. So why call a bank for credit card processing? Most banks have “agreements” to send businesses to a particular processor. The bank and the processor get their fees and from there on out, the bank does not provide customer service or technical support.
