What Value Does Your ISO Agent Program Provide?
August 31, 2016

ISO Agents look at a number of different criteria when evaluating which agent program that they should ultimately establish a sales relationship with.  There are many factors to be considered beyond just residual splits; from support to equipment & processing alternatives; the considerations can be daunting.   The options and programs available seem to be boundless with processors offering catchy enticements -  Residual Splits up to 90% - $5,000 signing bonuses – Production Bonuses – Free EMV Equipment… Many of these programs have fine print, and do not truly line up as advertised.  Agents often are provided non- competitive pricing, are required to jump through hoops to get benefits, and are left with sub- standard support and processing options.  Wouldn’t it be great if, there was a processor out there that truly delivered on it’s programs as advertised?

Enter, First Direct Financial, a Scottsdale, Arizona based merchant services and processing company that does just that.  First Direct Financial also offers a unique and refreshing twist on the traditional agent ISO program and is seeing rapid growth.   The First Direct Financial program touts the usual competitive offerings points such as aggressive revenue shares and pricing, multiple point of sale solutions (from mobile to gateways/ API’s), and dedicated operations & boarding support teams.   However, First Direct Financial has a differentiator in its ISO Agent - Sub Agent program.

Here’s How it works. First Direct Financial has developed a proprietary marketing and recruitment tool that is used to provide experienced ISO agents, who want to run a team, with a trained sales force in their immediate area.  The First Direct Financial Sub Agent program eliminates the cumbersome and time consuming process of recruiting, hiring and training new sub agents for their ISO Agent partners.  The program provides immediate override revenue streams and is truly a differentiator versus other ISO Agent programs within the industry.   Contact First Direct Financial at www.fdfagent.com or visit them at Booth 29 at the Western States show.
