Credit Card Processing

"I have used the New Hampshire Retail Association's credit card processing program since the very beginning when I opened my business in 1995. I have found their program to be the best for rates, service, and consistency. Over the years I have been solicited by other services which may look good, but upon closer inspection none have offered the value that the NH Retail Association’s does.”

Credit Card Processing – The New Hampshire Retail Association has entered into a partnership with the Retail Council of NY State and its subsidiary, Retail Council Services Corp. to bring a highly competitive credit card processing program to our members.  Administered by Global Payments, we’ve combined our member’s volume with the retail associations in NY, VT and ME members, and negotiated rates on $450 million dollars, resulting in lowered rates and waived fees.  We offer processing for all major credit cards and full debit card capability.  Your daily settlement is electronically transmitted to the bank of your choice, so there is no need to change your current banking relationship.  Your processing will be streamlined by utilizing the latest in electronic equipment, including Verifone and Hypercom terminals.  You can either use your own existing electronic equipment, or purchase or rent equipment with our program.

“When you are making business decisions you must have a good confident understanding that you are making the right decision.  I really needed a resource to help me through this process.  Working with the New Hampshire Retail Association has truly been a great experience.  The support I received from them has been way over the top.”

“As we pass our 7th year as part of the New Hampshire Retail Association's worker’s comp program, we have saved tens of thousands of dollars and could not be happier.  If anyone is looking for a way to cut expenses, they should take a hard look at this program.  Don’t underestimate the potential savings.  Not only have we saved money monthly, but at the end of the year, we have received a substantial dividend.”

"One of the treasures that the New Hampshire Retail Association has is their affiliation with MESCA Freight Services.  I didn’t realize that until 2008 when we started looking at how to tackle the complex issues of shipping, receiving and the constant rise in cost. I’m amazed and pleasantly surprised at the level of service, effectiveness and quality that MESCA has provided. They are always diligent and able to answer any questions at all times.  Certainly, being a member of the NH Retail Assoc is worth every penny!"

"It is imperative that Retail have a voice at the statehouse, as other industries do.  The New Hampshire Retail Association provides retail with the pathway that is necessary to communicate with our very large legislature.  The NH Retail Assoc provides valuable services to its members, but also allows its members to speak out on issues of importance, and funnels those thoughts and concerns to our elected leaders. Without the NH Retail Association, each retailer would have to independently attempt to reach out to our leaders, and that would be inefficient and certainly less impactful."
