Merchant credit card processors--or processing companies--are designed to enhance businesses by allowing them to accept all forms of payment, from anywhere in the world, at all times of the day. These payment formats typically include all major debit and credit cards, as well as traditional and electronic or online checks. Credit card processing companies also provide clients with protection from fraud and identity theft by encrypting all financial data that is included in business transactions.
