Here are the top 5 reasons to sell credit card processing.
What really convinced me to sell credit card processing was the possibility of earning residuals and essentially building my own business. Not a day goes by now that I don’t thank myself for taking a risk and trying something new! This year I am going to make more money than most of my friends and if I continue to hit my goals I plan on not needing to work anymore within the next few years!
Being in commission-only sales my entire career embedded in me an entrepreneurial spirit. I knew the value of a full day’s work, the more time I put in the more money and success I would gain. I did not care for the 9-5 mentality the majority of my co-workers shared. They chose to be content with doing the least amount of work possible to squeak by and not get yelled at. The opportunity to sell merchant services with Beacon Paymetns allowed me the freedom to make my own decisions, set my own schedule, and gave me the uncapped income potential I was looking for.
A year ago we hired a gentleman in the midwest who had retired 10 years ago and was living on social security. His checks were just enough to pay his bills - but he wanted something more. After almost a year of searching for a sales job he had no luck. He contacted us knowing that while we could not guarantee him a salary - we could give him an opportunity to increase his income substantially on his own timeframe.
Sell merchant services as an outside sales job and succeed. It takes more than just getting hired to make it in the credit card processing industry than just getting hired.
