United Payments International Services

United Payments International Services go live.

We are proud to announce that after 10 successful years operating in Australia and New Zealand we now have the ability to provide merchant facilities in most countries around the world. What has triggered this move is the number of foreign interest we have had, businesses from around the world contacting us asking if we can assist in acquiring merchant facilities for them. These inquiries have been primarily coming from Asia, the United States, Canada and Europe.

We were interested in finding out why people were looking and, why they were looking outside of their own country for merchant facilities. The answer was the same with almost every inquiry;

  • Pricing
  • Flexibility
  • Useability

Pricing: Merchant processing can be expensive. Many companies advertise teaser rates but, when you sign up you find that you may be paying extra for statements, or tiered pricing for different card types (e.g. an international visa card as opposed to a domestic one). We will always endeavor to keep these variations to a minimum. In some countries we will not be able to avoid this, but for the most part we will maintain flat rate pricing for all services.

Flexibility: Brick and mortar businesses and retail outlets often need to process transactions outside of the office or store, and mobile businesses often sit down in an office and would like to process their transactions, so why shouldn’t your facility be available to you whenever, wherever and however you need to process payments?

Useability: This really does encompass everything, pricing, flexibility, ease of use, statements and reports available at the click of a button generated in real time. We have spent 10 years working on what our customers need, so where other facilities seem to charge or penalise people for extras, we endeavor to make all of this available to all customers. In some cases this may not be possible, but we think with our mix of service providers we can satisfy your current needs and build on your future requirements as they arise.

Most new businesses lack the ability to negotiate a low rate (through no fault of their own). Many have no trading history, often do not have a business plan, nor do they have the time to send application after application for a merchant facility. If a merchant facility is approved it often attracts higher merchant service fees, transaction fees, tiered pricing and holding fees etc. A small business cannot get ahead, and never quite knows what they will be paying with each transaction they process. This is where we come in.

Through multiple service providers scattered around the world, we can find the right merchant facility for you. Don’t want to pay a premium for something you will never use, or don’t mind paying a little extra for something like a mobile payments platform etc. ? Let us know, by visiting our plans and pricing page and tell us what you want. We will use all resources at our disposal to find the best facility for you. We only deal with large multinational merchant account providers, so the price we can negotiate on your behalf should be a lot lower than what you would usually be able to acquire on your own. From our small test base we have found that we can reduce the cost of processing by several hundreds of dollars for the smallest of merchants or 10’s of thousands of dollars per annum savings for larger merchants.

Once you complete the form on the linked page above, a customer service representative will contact you either via email or phone and ask for a few more particulars. They will then get back to you with an offer, which at that point you may choose to proceed or not. The decision is yours and you are under no obligation to accept.

As for our Australian and New Zealand customers we will still continue to provide our United Payments credit card facility, but if you find the need for something different or need something specific created for your business, we are now in a position to facilitate additional services if you have outgrown our standard product offering. Send us an email and let us know what you need and we will see what we can do for you.

If you have any questions or queries do not hesitate to contact us, we will be happy to answer any questions you may have. with almost 10,000 applicants over the years our sole interest is getting what is best for our customers.
