I am certainly no giant when it comes to programming, but I know enough to get by! A simple job, sell some books and memberships online. I have my own shopping cart but needed basic credit card charging and recurring billing.
I tried PayPal first and after 3 weeks and 300+ pages of documentation the final straw was when I had a question and I couldn’t find an answer in their documentation. They replied with an email and quoted me a paragraph out of their manual! So long!
Next came an organization that touted 24/7 support. I signed up on a Wednesday, was approved on Thursday, and almost there on Saturday but could not get the recurring billing to work. No one answered the phone and the email reply was an auto response. On Monday I checked the link (in my email auto response) and found out the individual (tech support) was out of the office until Wednesday! So much for the 24/7 support!
I found Fast Charge on Tuesday, signed up on Wednesday, was approved on Thursday and was operational (live) at 1:10 pm on Saturday!
Support is where it is my fellow developers, and Fast Charge has it all! Friendly, reliable and available … what more could you ask for?
I am so very glad that a business associate recommended your service. I have still not heard back from some of the other merchant account providers that I contacted before I was referred to you. Pretty impressive to be up and running with our first transaction completed in less than 48 hours. Thank you for taking such good care of us, we are looking forward to a lasting professional relationship.

The help you people have given me goes beyond what anyone would
expect from a service company! When I started my business I was helpless when
it came to technical stuff and I wore out the patience of many techs at the
various companies I dealt with. Except you people! Whenever I was stuck all I
had to do was ring up your main number and in a few seconds I was being walked
through the process cheerfully and competently by someone who knew me by
my first name. I don't get to talk to you often these days because you're
system is so efficient I don't need help anymore. Maybe its purely
coincidental but our site has become a tremendous success since we hooked
up with Electronic Transfer and Fastcharge !

When I set up my online subscription service,
I searched for a vendor that would provide comprehensive service
(authorizations, processing, tools) and found Electronic Transfer
and FastCharge. Fastcharge's service is great, the costs are
low, and the interface tools are easy-to-use. Fastcharge helps
me provide quality low cost service to my members. I recommend
been running a one-person business online since 1994, but
until I threw out my swipe machine and switched to Electronic
Transfer the cost of accepting charges was always too high.
Even if I was on vacation or accepted mostly checks, my charge
card fees were always over $50 EVERY month.
Now with Electronic Transfer I pay only a modest fee each
month for retaining access to their services. I'm money ahead
and my clients get an automatic immediate email receipt letting
them know their charge has gone through.
This is how to do business online!

As our sales increased 700% in March and three times that
in April !"
"In February, I found an opportunity to sell Patriotic
lapel pins online. I had heard many horror stories from others
about the 'hoops' you have to jump through and the fees you
have to pay just to get a merchant account. But I found Electronic
Transfer Inc. online through a search engine, and inquired
about starting up an online merchant account."
"I spoke to ETI and was amazed at the level of customer
service and the ease of starting an account. Though we did
not have an established business credit history, Electronic
Transfer obtained an account for us with competitive fees."
"As our sales increased 700% in March and three times
that in April, we were faced with a real challenge. It was
only the 15th and we were approaching our maximum monthly
intake limit. I contacted ETI about this mixed blessing, and
that we were running out of time. Immediately, ETI procured
an additional merchant account for us, with twice our original
"Not only did their efforts keep us in business, but
allowed us to increase our marketing efforts to generate additional
sales. I would honestly say ETI is like our strategic partner
supporting our business goals and objectives."

Transfer has been great !
I called Electronic Transfer after going through another
big named company. With the old company I went through voice
system hell to ask a simple question. With ETI I asked questions
for 30 minutes before my account was set up and then another
30 minutes after my account was approved in one day. I had
alot of questions about my shopping cart and they walked me
through the set up and since I've had their service there
hasn't been a time I called that I couldn't talk to a real
person to get my questions answered. I would highly recommend
them for a merchant account and their shopping cart is so
easy even I was able to set it up within minutes.
me through setup
I applied with electronictransfer.com and they set me up
with the best gateway I've tried, fastcharge.com. They walked
me through the set up within minutes of being approved!

efficient, and helpful
Electronic Transfer has been wonderful to work with. When
we originally applied for the service, we had a very bad experience
with another merchant account company. Electronic Transfer
was like a breath of fresh air. Their customer service is
timely, efficient, and helpful. The merchant account system,
itself, has worked without a hitch. I would recommend their
service to everyone.

Transfer has been awesome"
"Thanks to the combination of ElectronicTransfer and
FastCharge, my business has grown rapidly! Having the ability
to process online payments has been a boon for myself and
my customers. I highly recommend ElectronicTransfer and Fastcharge!
Keep up the good work! "
way a company performs at taking care of its customers is
the most important factor in my decision about whom to do
business with and certainly ranks far above price. When it
comes right down to it, the customer is what this is all about
and Electronic Transfer has proven to me that the company
shares this view like none of the others."
