MRAA offers discount with payment processor

The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas announced a new affinity partnership with TSYS Merchant Solutions.

The partnership will provide dealers with preferred pricing on credit card processing, check guarantee and conversion, mobile payment solutions and gift card processing.

“The ability to easily and securely accept any type of payment has become a fundamental element in maintaining dealership customer satisfaction and is a critical component to any marine retailer’s business,” MRAA president Matt Gruhn said in a statement. “TSYS Merchant Solutions offers a secure, low-cost solution to this problem, allowing our members to focus on what they do best — running their businesses.”

Through the agreement, MRAA members will have access to competitive pricing, an array of hardware and software solutions for payment processing, and customer and technical support. TSYS also will offer to pay members as much as $500 if they can’t meet or beat their current processing costs.
