The Builders Merchants Federation’s (BMF) has partnered with Paymentsense, the provider of card payment solutions for businesses, to cut the cost of trade counter card payments.

The new service for BMF members is designed to simplify the merchant’s card payment process as well as reducing costs. The service is already saving one early adopter around £350 a month on card transactions at a single site.

Paymentsense combines cutting edge technology with the ability to design its service around each client’s needs, so they are not charged for elements they don’t use. Nor is there any charge for terminal rentals, and all funds arrive in the client’s bank account on the following business day.

Richard Ellithorne, BMF Membership Services Director, said: “Having looked at a number of providers we chose to partner with Paymentsense because their dedication to service excellence reflects the BMF’s mission to help our members build excellence within their  business.”
