SILVER SPRING, MD (September 16, 2022) – The Sports and Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) is pleased to announce Merchant Cost Consulting as a Supporting Sponsor for the 2022 Industry Leaders Summit (ILS). The event, taking place on October 25-26, 2022 in downtown Chicago is an annual conference for C-level executives in the sports and fitness industry.
At ILS, the most accomplished, respected, and influential executives in the sports and fitness industry come together to discuss pressing industry topics, such as advances in manufacturing, consumer behavior and insights, trade and supply chain, the changing landscape of sports growth and consumption, and more.
“We are grateful for the support of Merchant Cost Consulting as a sponsor for SFIA’s largest event of the year,” said Tom Cove, President & CEO, SFIA. “Our members and partners will use the services they provide to lower their costs and raise profitability for their businesses, helping their overall bottom line.”
Merchant Cost Consulting (MCC) was founded with the purpose of helping businesses audit, optimize, and reduce their credit card processing expenses without the hassle of making significant changes to their existing setup. MCC was founded in 2016 backed by a team with over 40+ years of merchant service experience, with a particular focus in merchant fee optimization, cost reduction, and payment acceptance.
Merchant service fees can be difficult to understand and one of the largest expenses for business owners to incur. Merchant service providers tend to have numerous hidden fees and surcharges, along with large monthly fees that are meant to be purposely deceitful. MCC becomes a part of its clients’ teams to handle their merchant service fees to ensure they are always paying a fair market value price. Merchant Cost Consulting is NOT a credit card processing company. Without switching credit card processing companies or integrated management software, Merchant Cost Consulting helps businesses reduce their credit card merchant fees expenses and audit their merchant account for rate increases, fee spikes, or padded pricing.
“Maximizing cash flow is a crucial part of running a business. By partnering with the SFIA, we are able to bring members a new, risk-free solution, to decrease the costs associated with their credit card processing companies with no disruption to the current operations. We are excited to educate more members about the complex payments industry,” said Patrick MacLellan, Director of Business Development, Merchant Cost Consulting.
