Check Conversion

Guarantee

As a business owner, you are likely presented with checks for payment from customers with whom you don’t have an existing relationship.

You may also be seeking to streamline your check payment processing, or, are looking for secure ways to accept checks through your website.

Platinum Relations offers solutions which include:

  • Point of Sale Check Conversion

  • Check Guarantee

  • ACH Debit

  • Check 21

  • Checks By Phone

  • Checks By Web

The two most utilized programs are Conversion and Guarantee.

Through Check Conversion, the maker of the check, and their checking account, are compared against a database of those with known payment issues.

If you choose Check Guarantee, you will enjoy a robust safety net.  Should a check processed through a Check Guarantee program be returned for insufficient funds, or for other non-pay reasons, the program provider will actually credit those funds back to you, the merchant, and take over the responsibility for collecting payment from the maker.

Whatever your needs or questions about Check/ACH processing, we are here to help you and to design the best, most elegant solution for moving you forward.

If you have questions and you are a current Platinum Relations Client, please reach out to your Platinum Relations Consultant.

Contact Us if you would like more information and detail, or, to set up your Check/ACH processing system.

Merchant Cash Advance

We maintain relationships with both AmeriMerchant and AdvanceMe.  Your Consultant will discuss your needs with you and determine which of the various programs would be best for your situation.

 

AmeriMerchant:

Can your business use working capital?

AmeriMerchant can provide your business between $5,000 - $500,0000 in capital against its future credit card sales through our AmeriMerchant Traditional Merchant Cash Advance Program which is a fast and easy alternative to a traditional small business loan.

Need funds in a hurry?

AmeriMerchant can typically provide funds in 7 days or less.

Concerned about your credit?

No problem. AmeriMerchant has a very high approval rate. 

Since 2002, AmeriMerchant has deployed hundreds of millions of dollars to all types of businesses through our AmeriMerchant Traditional Merchant Cash Advance Program.

AmeriMerchant Traditional Merchant Cash Advance Program Requirements

You must process at least $5,000/month in credit cards from your customers for at least 60 days.

You must process credit cards at least 12 days out of each month.

 

AdvanceMe:

What is a Merchant Cash Advance?

Sometimes referred to as "credit card receivable funding" or "credit card factoring," a Merchant Cash Advance (MCA) is the purchase of future credit and debit card receipts.

Your business sells a fixed dollar amount of its future credit and debit card sales at a discount. Once approved, you'll receive a lump sum of the working capital as the purchase price.  Then you're all set to use this money for any business need.  It's not a loan--it's a smart way for businesses like yours to get the funds you need.

The good news:  No personal collateral is required.  Qualification is primarily based on the strength of the business. And that means things like a business owner's poor personal credit history is not an automatic disqualifier for an MCA from AdvanceMe.  Compare that to other lenders and financing sources. Plus, we can get the money in your hands in as few as 5 days with very little paperwork.

Best of all, it's a very cash flow friendly solution for your business. AdvanceMe gets paid when your business gets paid. It's that simple.

Charitable Funding

Platinum Relations is committed to sewing and strengthening the fabric of our communities through the creation of a cycle of sustainable giving.  We bring merchants and charitable organizations together to go forward, arms locked, side by side, making the world a much better place for those in need and those who meet those needs.

Connecting merchants and charitable organizations is Platinum Relations’ way of bringing two vital groups of servant leaders together to make significant impacts in our communities. We facilitate philanthropic programs which allocate a portion of  

merchant fees which were previously directed to large investor groups, for profit, rather than to support our communities.

 

When you select Platinum Relations as your merchant services agent and advocate, you’ll help support charitable organizations.  A percent of your processing fees will go directly to charitable organizations every month.

Let’s move forward together, arms locked, side by side, making the world a much better place for those in need, and for those who meet those needs.

Start the cycle of sustainable giving today.

Yours in service,
