Arlington Heights Merchant Banc (ahmb.net) premium transaction services enable a merchant to securely accept credit cards and checks online in real-time. Simple instructions regarding the use of these services are provided. No installation is required.
What does this mean for you? Simplicity. There is no software to install and no hardware necessary. Your online business can begin accepting payments via the Internet immediately, hands-off, 24 hours a day. Every time a customer places an order with you, both you and the customer receive immediate order verification.
For orders received by phone, fax, email, or in person, ahmb.net provides a Virtual Terminal, which enables you to manually submit transactions for immediate authorization and processing. If you do not have an Internet connection, order information may be submitted to Acceptcreditcards-now.com by fax.
Needless to say, the Internet marketplace continues to grow explosively. Businesses can't afford not to allow their customers to purchase their products on the Internet. And the more payment options you make available, the more likely it is that a customer will purchase from you. ahmb.net services allow you to accept credit cards from the millions of customers who use them, and check payments from the even greater number of customers who don't. By enabling you to offer multiple payment options on the Internet, ahmb.net can greatly increase your customer base.
One study has found that approximately 80 percent of customers who say they will send a payment by mail never do. Instead of waiting for the "check in the mail" to match payments to orders, ahmb.net enables you to obtain payment immediately. Billing expenses such as postage, invoicing, and bookkeeping are eliminated.
You can also avoid C.O.D. and airbill orders by completing each sale over the phone. This dramatically increases cash flow and decreases missed or refused deliveries.
ahmb.net allows your customers to order online without the need to transmit account information unencrypted. Our services are designed for the Internet using a proprietary system, a Netscape Commerce Server™, PGP® encryption, and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. (These technologies are described in "ahmb.net/Security".) You do not need to invest in additional security features.
