The Federal Trade Commission requires that we at CheapestMerchantAccounts.com disclose any relationships we have between the service providers covered in our reviews.
Here are the guidelines we operate under here CheapestMerchantAccounts.com:
- We are never paid to do a review. We will never accept money to review service provider outside of our normal review process. We try our best to select the merchant account providers that people are searching on the web for, and then go out and perform an in-depth review of that company to the best of our ability.
- In an effort to cover the operating expenses of running a website and performing the reviews, along with attempting to promote the website to small business owners across the country, we have decided to engage in affiliate relationships with the merchant service providers listed. As a result of these relationships CheapestMerchantAccounts.com may receive compensation from merchant service providers for the traffic they receive from this website.
- No advertiser will ever influence the content, or reviews made on this site. The way we have attempted to ensure this is to try and engage in affiliate relationships with every merchant account provider that we review. Whether they are the top ranked processor or the lowest, if they have an affiliate program we will attempt to join their program. In this way we hope to avoid individuals fearing that the reason a processor is rated where it is, is a result of how much they offer for traffic – this is not the case. In addition we highly encourage site visitors to provide their own reviews, and hope small business owners visiting these reviews that those reviews into consideration.
We feel very strongly that it’s important for you to understand the relationship between a person reviewing the product and the merchant account providers that we cover on this site.
If you don’t see a disclosure policy on any review site (or blog), that reviewer may be violating the law or at the very least the Code of Ethics. We stand by our reviews and review process and hope that the information provided helps our site’s visitors to find the best merchant account for their small business.
