Be sure to audit your monthly statement

If you are a merchant make sure you audit your monthly billing statement.  Many times increases in fees slip through and is has become common to see penalties for unknowingly being out of compliance with one or more of the new rules or regulations.  These penalties likely generate profit for a processor, bank, or sales organization.  With a little legwork they can be eliminated.  Contact your service organization as ask that they help you remove any unnecessary fees.  If they won’t … move your business.
