So you have QuickBooks and QuickBooks Point-of-sale clients who have grown increasingly unhappy with Intuit Merchant Services. They are looking for an alternative, but they just don’t know how a different Merchant Service is going to work with their Intuit Software. You are wondering what is going to happen to the revenue stream you receive from Merchant Services if these client ‘shift’ away from IMS. Well the answer for both your clients and you may well be Pensmore and the Pensmore Partner Program (they call it P3).
Pensmore provides Intuit Solution Providers, Intuit Premier Resellers and Retail Solution Providers a phenomenal partner program, while at the same time providing your QuickBooks and QuickBooks Point-of-sale clients with an integrated solution to process credit cards with a merchant service that will match or beat their current IMS pricing. As a member of their Partner Program you can realize the benefits of recurring revenues, sales performance incentives, marketing support, leads, a dedicated channel account manager, customer portal access, and pre-/post-sales support.
Partners refer leads to Pensmore for customers that accept credit cards in the course of their business. These customers can receive free software enabling them to take advantage of Pensmore payment applications that are fully integrated into QuickBooks POS or QuickBooks. Customers can also choose to utilize one of Pensmore’s Mobile or Virtual Terminal products to accept credit cards. Regardless of how your clients choose to use Pensmore they can expect better rates and customer service than they currently receive.
Pensmore offers recurring revenues based on the Net Proceeds of Merchants you as a partner refer. This monthly revenue is guaranteed for the life of the account as long as you remain a Partner in good standing with Pensmore. Monthly residuals can easily grow into the five figure range
The Pensmore Partner Program is founded on an ‘Ease of Doing Business’ model. This means we will maintain one platform where our partners can access marketing/training materials, track their prospects’ status, review their residual streams, or submit a support ticket.
While there is no Certification process, online training and support tools are available to Partners along with periodic webinars for new products. Pensmore ensures that resellers know the products and the value propositions they offer to customers. In addition, Pensmore partners have direct influence over Pensmore’s product roadmap so everything built is because they have asked for it. Pensmore’s 24/7 local customer support and solid IntuitivePay software makes it easy to support your clients.
