Historically, in Canada the primary way to obtain a merchant account or credit card processing services would be to go to a local bank and get referred to whatever credit card processor the bank is referring businesses to. This is usually Moneris or TD Canada Trust which are by far the largest credit card processors in Canada right now. With the introduction of SquareUp and PayPal Canadian merchants have other alternatives but they do not address the real needs of Canadian business that need to accept Interac Chip Cards which is the preferred payment method in Canada. Just being able to accept standard credit cards does not truly meet the needs of the Canadian businesses.
We constantly get calls from Canadian business owners interested in our free equipment programs... Until now this was only available in the USA. In the past Canadian businesses would pay much more than US businesses for credit card processing services and equipment. In fact, the cost of equipment is exactly the same in Canada as the USA and the cost of interchange (the credit card processors actual cost to process the transaction) is lower in Canada than in the USA. So why do businesses in the USA pay so much less than their Canadian counterparts and in addition get provided with free credit card processing equipment?
The answer is simple... Canadian credit card processing companies (yes, Canadian companies) have been raking in the dough from businesses who continue to overpay for credit and debit card processing services and equipment. In addition, they have been known to increase fees every year and their contracts all carry heavy cancellation fees just for the merchant agreement (keep in mind I say merchant agreement not equipment lease). The Non Cancellable equipment lease you (most likely) signed is probably with an entirely different entity that they (the Canadian credit card processor) misguidedly signed you up with disguising it as part of their merchant agreement! I'm sure that many who are reading this article have been duped in just this way and are looking for a reliable honest company that does not overcharge for services and equipment.
