How did Chosen Payments get involved in the funeral industry?
For years Chosen Payments has provided service to the limousine industry. While serving the limo industry, they found a strong association between funeral homes and limousine services. Their client, Saxet Funeral Home also owns Limousines Unlimited in Corpus Christi. Their client, Limousine Scene in Bakersfield provides service for Greenlawn Mortuaries. Both the limo industry and the funeral care industry have fairly high transaction amounts resulting in a large business expense for accepting credit cards. Processing credit cards for thousands of locations in the limo and funeral industry allows them to provide much lower pricing very similar to what national chain stores pay by having many locations.
What makes Chosen Payments unique?
Their Funeral Payments program was built with a true understanding of the needs of funeral care providers across America. Through their partnership with many funeral director associations, they are dedicated to providing the lowest cost, fastest funding and technology-driven solutions for the needs of funeral care providers.
They consult with each care provider to determine the best solutions to help improve financial cash flow and increase bottom line profitability.
How does Chosen Payments provide a solution for funeral homes?
Because they understand most death cases are often unexpected and things flow rapidly, they know that having your money in your bank the next day is important. Their Funeral Payments program makes sure that your transactions today are in your bank by tomorrow morning. They can even send you a text to let you know when the process is complete. They understand that families sometimes write checks with good intentions of collecting the funds, but you end up with a bounced check. Their check verification system insures that funeral homes are never left holding a useless check after the service.
They guarantee the rate they provide you during the comparison quote process is a rate you will be guaranteed for the life of the relationship. There is absolutely no one that can provide a lower effective processing rate for funeral directors.
They are so confident in that promise that they will pay $500 if they can’t beat the current rate paid by any funeral home. They also understand that no one likes to be locked into a long contract and that is why they don’t have them. Through their membership in national, state and regional associations of the funeral care industry, they attend educational sessions to keep abreast on such issues as the new trend of meeting families in their homes and processing credit card payments on mobile devices. They don’t simply process credit cards. They know the industry inside and out.
