Edge Advertising Group Develops & Launches Website

Edge Advertising Group has developed and launched a client's website: https://stresslessforwomen.com/ . This website is an example of one size DOES NOT fit all. The sole proprietor of Stress Less for Women had content and images which presented well on a one-page site. While viewing the site, you will note traditional tabs take you to the relevant section, of the one page! For this type of digital need, a one-page website can save time and ultimately money.



Heartland's Surcharging Program

Is passing credit card processing fees to your customers right for you?


Now more than ever, businesses are looking for ways to cut their spending and lower the fees they are paying.  Many businesses in the area are beginning to do this by offsetting the cost of accepting credit card payments, with surcharging. Every little bit helps these days!


The cost to process credit card payments has always been the business owner's responsibility and recently we have seen an increase in the number of owners passing the credit card processing fees off to their customers. This helps the business owner retain more revenue while offsetting the cost of accepting credit cards in a way that doesn't break the rules!

Heartland’s surcharge program ensures that your business is registered and compliant with all the rules and regulations.  One important rule to remember is that surcharge fees can only be applied to credit cards, not debit, gift cards or prepaid cards. 

Of course there are some rules and regulations that you need to keep in mind when considering this for your own business. And this is where a free consultation proves to be beneficial. Click to consult:
