Clearent: An introduction and FAQ's Bookmark

Dear Business Owner,

Thank you for taking the time to read this.  This is simply a sheet to inform you on Clearent as well as frequently asked questions about the industry.  Besides the possibility of us doing business together it is also my job to inform.  I have been in the industry for 8 years and am familiar with a lot of the same frustration you are surrounding card processing and your business.  I understand that most business owners at some point in time have been taken advantage of and when someone like myself walks into your door a wall goes up, which is why I have created this sheet for you.
