Certified Hosting Partners with Host Merchant Services for Payment Processing

What is the most significant source of revenue from your website? For some businesses, web hosting only offers a return because it keeps their website and contact information online, promoting business leads through phone calls and emails. Others with particularly high traffic volumes can generate income through advertising or sponsorships. For most of us, though, a web presence earns its keep through taking and completing orders online. Now more than ever, a robust ecommerce platform and dependable payment processing system is incredibly important.

However, the world of payment processing and merchant services can also be incredibly complex. Almost every webmaster needs to make effective use of the solutions available from merchant service providers, but doing so requires knowledge of how fees are charged for each transaction. Without taking the time to understand this, it is impossible to plan your online sales strategy.

Certified Hosting is proud to announce a new partnership with Host Merchant Services (www.hostmerchantservices.com), a leading provider of merchant services designed exclusively for web hosting providers and their customers. If you would like to take credit card payments online, this new relationship makes doing so easier and more affordable than ever.
