How too for merchant

  1. 1. EPS - How to run an EPS90 transactionThe first step in running an EPS90 transaction is letting the customer know thatyou offer the EPS90 EZ Payment Plan. "I just wanted to let you folks know that we have just introduced a no credit check EZ Payment Plan. If you have any questions while you are looking around, please let me know."You then need to educate your customers how the program works. "Our EZ Payment Plan allows you to set up a guaranteed series of payments. If you are approved you can schedule up to 20 payments over a 90-day period. You only need to put down a minimum of 15% down today, and we can work out a payment schedule that you can work with. There are no interest rates to worry about, because we are not dealing with credit. There is simply a transaction fee to use the service. It is affordable, flexible and a responsible way to do business today."As a business owner, you can determine the amount that the customer is requiredto put down as a deposit. The program requires a minimum of 15%, more than thatis up to you. You can also set the program rate to your benefit as well. Werecommend a rate of 10%, but you can vary this to best fit your client base andyour needs. You then need to qualify your customer. "To use the EZ Payment Plan, you have only 4 qualifications: • You need to have a state issued id, and a checking account with commercially imprinted checks. • You need to show proof of income. This can as simple as a payroll stub (or if you are retired or self-employed, you can just show a copy of your bank statement showing regular deposits). 1

EPS - How to run an EPS90 transaction • We check your name and your account against a national negative check file. • The system pings your bank account to make sure your account is open, active, and has at least $50 in it. Meeting these qualifications, your transaction will be approved.Next you have to determine the payment schedule, collect the checks dated foreach payment, and fill out the one page 60-second customer agreement.

Check 1 May 1 $400.00 Check 2 May 15 $241.56 Check 3 May 29 $241.56 Check 4 etc ... From check #1, the merchant would net $346.88 ($400 less the $25 file creation fee and the 7.5% discount rate).
