Apex Merchant Solutions Introduces eChecks.

Saves Up to 50 Percent per Transaction for E-Commerce Merchants

PEEKSKILL, N.Y., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Apex Merchant Solutions (, a leading independent sales office for credit-card processing banks, today announced the availability of eChecks for its merchant clientele. eChecks lets visitors at e-commerce sites pay for their purchases through business or personal checking accounts.

eChecks costs merchants 1.5-to-2.0 percent per transaction compared to 2.5-to-4.0 percent for credit-card processing. In addition to saving as much as 50 percent per transaction, eChecks also provides access to an estimated 10 million online households without a credit card, thus providing an additional revenue flow for the merchant.

Linda Thompson, President of Apex Merchant Solutions, said, "eChecks is an ideal solution to increase your customer base, provide a convenient alternative for your e-commerce visitors, and reduce your cost of accepting payments. It may be used for almost anything sold over the Internet and is rapidly growing in size and popularity."

She went on to note some of the target industries for eChecks including most e-commerce and business-to-business companies.

Other features of eChecks include user authentication, age verification and a reduced liability window for charge backs, 60 days for checks compared to 180 days for credit cards.

eChecks also offers additional service options such as payments management, returns management, OFAC compliance and Canadian ACH processing.

Ms. Thompson added, "Offering eChecks is a matter of simple arithmetic. Many more potential buyers use a checking account than a credit card. And those with both may experience temporary financial constraints regarding one or the other."
