Welcome to Merchant Sumo
Start saving money on retail transactions today!
More than three quarters of all retail spending is now made with credit or debit cards, and that figure is forecast to rise substantially over the next 10 years.
For businesses to remain competitive they must accept card payments, but in order to do this, you will need to set up a merchant account.
With this in mind, making sure that you choose the best merchant account for your business is important for both customer satisfaction and your own retail success.
