Shopping around for merchant services can be overwhelming for business owners who are seeking lower rates and better service. Two entrepreneurs have developed a tool for determining how much the credit card company charges when you use your credit card. You simply enter the first five digits of your credit card company to obtain the information.

If you are uncomfortable with entering your credit card numbers, there are samples of charges listed at the bottom of the website. The tool compares the charges on items purchased and the credit card charges.

There is also a tool on the same website which will compare the different programs for business financial services. These are great tools to use and will greatly enhance your transactions with your merchant account representative and help you to determine frm whom you will secure your merchant services.
