Merchant Consultant Sales Job

Merchant processing sales is an up-and-coming industry for hard-working, savvy professionals. For those whose ambitions rule, there is no limit to what they can achieve—professionally and financially.

The truth is that cash is no longer king. Every retailer, from small mom and pop stores to multi-million dollar box chains, enjoy the convenience and ease of credit card sales. The world has become plastic—and retailers have followed suit.

Merchant sales consultants serve as the gateway for these businesses so they too can get a merchant account and access credit card processing solutions.

But you know better than anyone else that not all credit card processing companies are the same. Some don’t offer the best professional opportunities for its merchant sales consultants while others are more about their bottom line than providing the first-rate merchant services that they promise their clients. So for professional sales people, leveraging their books of business in merchant services can be difficult, to say the least, without the right support from their employer.

And of course, you know that a great merchant consultant sales opportunity from a trusted provider is hard to come by.

Moving Up in the Merchant Services Industry:

If you feel like your current employer doesn’t make the cut, it’s time to learn for another sales opportunity—one that has the right support, equipment, leadership, and level of commitment. Not to mention a better agent agreement and commission plan.

As an experienced and profitable merchant sales consultant, you already know all of the industry’s secrets. You know every trick in the book. You know what separates the premier credit card processing companies from the amateurs: things like having the best processing platforms and funding banks, having the ability to work with business of all sizes and processing needs, as well as possessing the expertise and integrity that every company should—but not always does.

But most importantly, the right credit card processing company should provide its sales agents the:

  • Knowledge to further educate them about the latest industry news
  • Equipment and technology for clients
  • Tools and resources to help its employees succeed

So does a better merchant sales opportunity even exist?

What if there was a premier card processing company that has a great processing platform—First Data—and funding bank—Wells Fargo—with the most passionate, knowledgeable staff that aren’t just concerned with their bottom line?

Doesn’t seem possible, does it? Wrong.

Are you a good rep at a second tier platform? You'd kill it at MerchantPro Express (MPX).
