Dog Lost for Ten years Returns Home A family dog returned home 10 years after becoming lost.  Debra Suierveld mourned the loss of her dog Abby when she ran away from her home in Apollo, Pennsylvania.  Despite being microchipped, they never heard from Abby again until last Saturday when Abby turned up on the front porch of George Spiering, some 10 miles away from her home.  He took her to have her chip read and then got in touch with Debra.  Despite seeming to have been called a different name for a decade, Abby still answers to Abby. Knocked Out...Read more

We have recently learned that many credit card processors have implemented fees in 2018 to merchants who don’t have a chip reader terminal.  Really, this isn’t a fee.  It is a fine that is unfairly implemented by unscrupulous credit card processors who are simply making an extra buck off you.  It’s not just a buck though.  One processor is charging an annual fee of $299 to all merchants who don’t have an EMV chip reader terminal. They are blaming MasterCard and Visa.  This is absolute hogwash.  Although we do recommend that you implement the chip reader terminals for your own...Read more

Christmas Eve 2017: Not A Fraudster Was Sleeping

christmas eve

We made it through another Christmas season.  There is probably no time of the year that eCommerce takes such a prevalent place in society.  As we got closer to Christmas Day, eCommerce was ramped up to its highest volume with last minute rush orders being handled as fast and furious as merchants can process them. But, it’s not over yet.  In the week following Christmas, $700 million dollars a day will be transacted with online sales.  Some of the biggest purchases will come in the form of party goods for New Year’s Eve parties, travel, lodging and of course, champagne. ...Read more

The Damage a Not Quite Right Employee May Cause

Outside it might be freezing, but a “Spring Cleaning” early in the new year may be in order. It’s a challenging time to operate a business, with changing customer expectations, increased competitive pressures and difficulty finding the right employees can often force us to “settle” for an employee that may be wrong for your business. But, are the not quite right employees worth the risk?   A case in point: I recently contacted my airline to let them know that the 2,800 miles I had earned from a recent trip were not credited to my frequent flyer account. The rude...Read more

M-Commerce May Kill Thanksgiving Day Shopping

shopping

Have you heard the term “m-Commerce”?  It’s a cousin to e-Commerce, or Electronic Commerce which simply means that you are shopping online.  Online shopping became a thing when websites began selling products and processing credit cards through a website to place those orders.  Many people choose to shop from the comfort of their home while scrolling through product.  It is like the Sears catalog without the actual book. In the recent past, Google has penalized website owners who do not optimize their websites to be “mobile friendly”.  Being mobile friendly simply means that you are able to see website pages...Read more
