March Madness is here! Only I’m not referring to the NCAA basketball tournament, but L3’s travel schedule for the next few weeks. Despite the hustle and bustle of L.A. traffic and crowded airports, we’re excited to get back out there and discuss the myriad services L3 has to offer to new and existing merchants alike. Look for us at both the MAC Conference from March 11th – 13th in Las Vegas, and at the Phoenix Forum from March 27th – 30th. This month in useless trivia…did you know March starts on the same day of the week as November every year? Also, Daylight Savings Time begins in March and ends in November. With all that these two months have in common, I’m proposing we really seal the deal by celebrating my favorite U.S. holiday, Thanksgiving, in March too. Show of hands, who wouldn’t want two 4-day weekends and two Thanksgiving dinners per year? Exactly. If you haven’t already read Melody’s latest article titled “Six suggestions for Merchant Payments regarding Operation Choke Point”, I would strongly recommend taking the time to do so. Melody provides valuable information that could prevent you from being collateral damage when “the powers that be” make rash decisions in an effort to stop bad merchants. As discussed in Melody’s article, one of the most important factors in maintaining your business and its payment processing health is choosing a payment-processing partner that is committed to long-term success. And SBW is the perfect solution! With direct banking relationships, comprehensive intelligent routing technology and a robust, leading-edge fraud shield built around extensive empirical analysis, merchants can feel confident that their business is protected on all fronts.
