In 2019, Audit Advantage helped merchants avoid hundreds of fee increases
Credit card processors are notorious for increasing their fees. They have created thousands of ways to boost their profit from unsuspecting merchants. Here are 3 of the most common ways processors raised their hidden fees in 2019:
- Inflating the Visa, MC and Discover Assessments
- Adding bogus or excessive monthly fees
- Hiding fees behind legitimate sounding names (i.e. Risk Assessment fees)
Thanks to the team of industry experts at Audit Advantage, our customers avoided hundreds of cost increases like these. If you know someone that is suffering from excessive processing fees, tell them to contact us.
Understanding the basics of a PCI network vulnerability scan
Every month, Audit Advantage schedules hundreds of PCI network vulnerability scans for our PCI customers. Even though PCI network scans are a requirement for most merchants, many of our customers don’t understand the true benefits of passing their scans.
Vulnerability scanning is one of the easiest ways to predict how hackers might get into your system.
Our approved scanning vendor, Security Metrics, has prepared an informative White Paper that explains the basics about vulnerability scanning and why it helps protect your business.
Audit Advantage will begin sending unique invoices for each service
PLEASE NOTE: Beginning in January 2020, Audit Advantage will be providing separate invoices for each of our programs. In the past, some customers may have seen combined invoices for PCI and MONITOR.
Despite increasing demands, we WILL NOT be increasing the overall prices for our services.
We are committed to providing you with trusted programs that continue to generate positive ROI.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
What our customers are saying…
“Recently Audit Advantage alerted us to the fact that our processor was going to be increasing our processing costs over 500%. As a business owner, I don’t have the time or the knowledge to understand the merchant processing statements and that is why Audit Advantage is great for my business.”
