The National Merchants Association (NMA), a global credit card processor, works on behalf of businesses to eliminate the unnecessary and unreasonable costs associated with accepting credit cards. In addition to interchange fees, retailers also pay other charges, which can include PCI compliance fees, statement fees, customer service fees and/or debit access fees. While businesses can't eliminate interchange fees, they can avoid overpaying by having a third party group like NMA optimize their processing contracts. NMA currently operates globally through multiple US and international offices located in Australia, Canada, and Paris as it continues to dominate the retail independent sales organization space. NMA recently acquired the "military-friendly" employer and merchant services provider accolades, California small business certification, as well as gained the ability to bid for government and women-owned state and national contracts throughout the United States. The organization's international expansion allows the ability to market high-risk merchant services, while facilitating millions of transactions and educating business owners about merchant services rules and regulations & reducing fees. What distinguishes NMA from others? National Merchants Association works for small business owners to find maximum cost savings and long-term business success by using our proprietary account optimization process, which enables our clients to reap substantial savings.
