Community Bank Partners

Solutions for Banks

If your bank is seeking to differentiate by offering unique value-added services, consider partnering with Vantage Card Services to deliver payment processing to your clients.

Businesses with revenues of less than ten million dollars felt they were under served in a recent Bank Administration Institute survey. As a result, many businesses are prepared to switch banks for the right type of payment services. Vantage can help you take advantage of the payment opportunity to win new customers. And with a competitive fee structure, we provide your relationship banking team confidence in its ability to earn the client's business.

Banks that lose business in the payment processing segment to a competitor see a greater impact to their revenue and net income. To secure the payment relationship of your small-business customer base builds value in the overall bank relationship.

After months of meeting with other merchant card processors, we were introduced to Ty Hardison of Vantage Card by a mutual business associate. Our Management Committee reviewed several proposals however we always came back to Vantage's proposal. We were looking for a company that could address our small business customer's needs and provide excellent customer service for both our customers and our sales team. First Chatham Bank has not been disappointed and it has become one of our best partnerships.

B2B Payments

Vantage provides comprehensive business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-government (B2G) payment solutions including Level 3 payment solutions and a trade credit payment platform. Work with entrepreneurs and businesses to implement Level 3 purchasing card solutions and A/R best practices to increase working capital from trade credit receivables.

Business-to-business sales represent over $17 trillion in annual sales - 62% of the US economy. Buyer demand for free and flexible trade credit requires sellers to provide credit terms to their customers to encourage the purchase of goods and services. As a result, this is their largest use of capital - greater than plant, property, equipment, or other uses of capital.

Let Vantage show you how your sales team can attract and retain business customers by helping them implement payment acceptance best practices. Our referral program pays no risk fee income.
