MacLellan – Merchant
Cost Consulting

Key Takeaways:

  • How can you plan to hit the ground running when current pandemic is over?
  • Merchant Cost Consulting helps you evaluate your merchant processing company and analyze what they’re charging you in fees
  • Now is the time to tighten down and get lean & mean
  • Merchant services are very deceptive, they’re designed to confuse and obfuscate
  • Fees tend to increase 3-4x per year, nobody has the bandwidth to keep checking
  • MCC does all the legwork and negotiation with the merchant processor
  • They’ll negotiate reduction in fees going forward, and will also obtain refunds for situations you’ve been overcharged
  • Then they police & audit monthly statements to ensure against fee-creek
  • MCC is only compensated when clients save money
  • MCC splits savings 50-50 – for Bulletproof listeners they’re offering 55-45 split (Practice receives 55% of savings, MCC receives 45% of savings)
  • $10,000 in sales is $10,000 minus the cost of labor and goods sold. $10,000 in savings is $10,000.
