Nothing is worse than denying a customer's request to book a shipment due to credit issues. Especially in this today's economy in which every shipment counts. Because freight brokers are becoming similar to banks, it is typically bad business to accept these orders. The risk of not being paid promptly, or at all, significantly outweighs potential profit for that shipment.
Credit card processing is one solution to this dilemma; however there are many of obstacles to overcome, such as the task of credit card processing for each individual load by your accounting staff. This process can be very time consuming.
What if there was a software application which allowed your customers to pay by credit card as they book shipments from your website? Meaning a customer can conveniently enter a shipment online, choose a carrier rate, transit time, and pay by credit card at once directly from your website.
