“This is very exciting”, offered Jim Douglas, President of CCA, “and I know this will be good for CCA, our members and Clearent.  This is a win-win-win situation for all involved.  Very recently, I changed my provider to Clearent and realized a big savings over what I was paying.  It was an extremely smooth process, and I was very impressed with the follow-up I received.  Their support staff was responsive and was available when I needed them.”

Benefits of the CCA/Clearent Partnership include:

Keep more of your profits and grow your business.
Legally share credit card processing costs with your customers. Clearent’s Empower Program gives you the tools you need to add a surcharge or non-cash adjustment or offer a cash discount. They navigate the card brands’ discount offer rules so you can rest easy knowing you’re compliant.
Save money on your processing. Clearent’s rates start at less than 0.75% for CCA members.

Reduce your PCI scope with layered security.
Dramatically reduce your compliance burden. Clearent offers PCI-scope reducing technology, such as tokenization, PCI-Validated Point-To-Point Encryption (P2PE), and EMV, which work together to dramatically reduce your PCI scope, allowing you to take a shorter PCI questionnaire, and potentially forgo quarterly scans.

Run your business more efficiently.
 Accept payments wirelessly. With Clearent, you can accept payments from drive-thru customers with a wireless credit card machine.
Save your customers time with faster pickups. Securely store cards on file to quickly process future payments.
Get your money the very next business day. Clearent offers the option to enroll in their Next Day Funding service. With an 11:00 PM Eastern cut-off time, you can fund payroll and inventory purchases as soon as the next business day.

Get the support you need.
 Friendly, reliable customer service. Clearent’s U.S.-based customer support team is available to answer your questions every day from 7 AM to 11 PM Central.
Online, easy-to-read statements. Clearent has a clear conscience about their pricing and takes a hard stand against hidden fees. Plus, Clearent’s online reporting tool clearly breaks down every fee so you can see exactly what you’re being charged.

“This partnership was a long time in the making,” observed Peter Blake, CCA Executive Director.  “We started exploring this relationship over a year ago, and are excited to be able to bring it to fruition. We do not take endorsements and partnerships like this lightly.  We do a great deal of investigation on behalf of our members, and we do all we can to make sure the endorsed vendor will perform as agreed to.  By entering into this agreement, we are confident that Clearent will treat CCA members well -- and will save our members time and money over the course of the agreement.  One of the key components of the program is a direct link to Clearent and a liaison between CCA and Clearent that we can work with to resolve any issues that could arise.”
