Providence, Utah - March 19, 2003 - WestHost Inc., a leading web hosting provider (www.westhost.com), and payQuake, a premier provider of dynamic bankcard processing solutions, recently announced their partnership to offer low cost Merchant Accounts with dynamic Merchant pricing.
Businesses can now choose from multiple payment processing plans and fees each month to decide which best suits their needs. The entry plan Pay for Play, offers a no setup, no monthly fee, and no minimum requirement solution to get started. Merchants only incur the discount rate and transaction fee as they make sales.
This is an incredible opportunity for small businesses that are just getting started with ecommerce, said Bevan Erickson, Director of Marketing & Sales. Now the opportunity to set up shop online is easier, more affordable, and comes with practically zero risk to the new merchant.
Since partnering, WestHost has already seen numerous new businesses take advantage of payQuakes affordable payment processing solutions, and expects the number to grow exponentially as more businesses discover the cost effective alternative to traditional merchant accounts.
"WestHost best exemplifies the pro merchant ideology that is paramount for all service providers in the world of e-commerce said payQuake CEO, Tony Perre. The versatility of the WestHost turn-key e-commerce packages is exactly what todays e-merchants are looking for.
