The National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA) entered into extensive negotiations for more highly favorable deals with payments process providers to help members purchase EMV-ready terminals at an affordable price. In addition, NSGA took this opportunity to renegotiate per transaction fees to provide further longterm cost-savings for members.
We now have the ability to offer terminals to our members at practically no cost, with lower-than-market transaction rates, the assurance that EMV-ready terminals will be made available without delay and with highly personalized consulting throughout the certification process. Our recommended processor is prepared for the surge of orders and has programing in place to help minimize any predictable delays, particularly with high-end terminals. We have also found a vendor that is able to provide smart business knowledge to keep you ahead of the game in terms of payment processing technology and rule changes.
