Back when I did this in 1998, the bank (merchant provider) was very nervous, and I almost had to put a $5000 deposit and had to pay 4.5% commission. After a couple years I got this down to 2.25%.
The new owner will want the same sort of deal, but wants to deal with a differnt Canadian Bank.
ie they don't want to put down a deposit and they want a discount rate the same as the one we got. Something tells me that this is not going to be easy.
Anybody had any experince with this scenario?
I don't have a clue on what it takes in Canada to get a good merchant discount rate in Canada in 2005, since I haven't done it in 8 years.
New Owners credit is clean (All R1 for 6 Years), so this looks like it is going to by easy.
What a difference from 8 years ago, when they look at you like you had 2 heads, when you said you were going to take credit cards over the Internet.
