Many fitness and martial arts centers, regardless of size, struggle with accounts receivable. Owners recognize that one of the most frustrating parts of running their business is collecting monthly membership fees, maintaining on-time payments, and managing customer information. Not only is this frustrating, but it is detrimental to cash flow and the resource management process. VeriCheck understands the needs of the fitness industry and provides ACH (Automated Clearing House) solutions as an efficient payment and customer management option. ACH payments provide fitness and martial arts owners the ability to deduct funds directly from a member’s bank account.
Leveraging an ACH payment processing solution can also save you money – processing monthly membership payments via ACH costs a fraction of the fee for processing credit cards. Depending on the size of your fitness studio or gym, you may be paying upwards of $500 or $1,000 each month to process credit cards. VeriCheck’s ACH solutions provide flexibility to design a customized solution for gyms of all types and sizes, and can help you cut costs while scaling your business.
