If you are anything like me, having credit cards is extremely difficult to obtain, or obtain. I mean, credit cards can usually be purchased with cash, checks and cheques from a variety of issuers, all of which are allgivably offer available in all currencies. With the variety of store credit cards available today, though, the burden of proof, and especially the cost of setting up an application for a credit card, reaches new highs! Once this all has already been cleared away, it becomes exponentially more difficult to obtain the kind of credit card you want.
To aid those with poor credit histories in times such as these, obtaining a credit card is no easy task. Yet, with the sheer volume of credit card offers and advertisements available on the Internet, it is highly probable that you’ll find credit cards for a wide array of good causes. Whether it’s helping individuals struggling financially to pay off their credit card debts, educating a new generation about personal finance, or assisting with a medical emergency, credit cards are a necessary part of a working man and woman’s relationship. It is more important than ever that they be able to get out and utilize credit responsibly, and ensure they get the help they need at the right moment.
Those are some of the reasons why I personally prefer to work with credit card companies and merchants on a regular basis (in all countries when it comes to credit card purchases). All of these organizations and businesses should make sure that they provide clients with products and services that will meet their needs and that they will be able to make the purchase that a merchant agrees to when they receive the order. That way, if there is someone knocking on your door, they may be able to give you the product that they will be able to get you on a deal that will ensure that you begin to make the purchase. This is one of the most vital reasons why I have decided to work with credit card companies and businesses on a regular basis.
Now, that said, the majority of credit card companies (and many smaller businesses) would rather not share my experience of many different scenarios because they would never get in the business of helping people get out of debt by providing services that they may not be able to if they have a credit card company or merchant account at a later date (that could be inconvenient, but it allows them to serve as an invaluable service to all parties involved). I know the frustration it can bring me to realize when I have to rely only on what I hear or read from friends, family, or the general public. Any service that is provided would be very limited and probably are far from ideal, as I am not a planner or a person who would let myself get carried away with too much detail into the finer details.
For instance, one thing should be kept in mind when it comes to services provided by credit card companies. Payment options should be limited and should probably be for a limited time. They should be able to offer cards in situations where the borrower may not be able to make the payments on time or they may have made a late payment or both, which could hurt the chances that the borrower will qualify for the products they are looking for. That being said, there should also be a wide gap in terms of the terms that will allow for more flexibility in accepting or refusing service before it is established that it is viable for that purpose.
While I agree that credit cards to be considered when someone’s situation warrants them providing credit, I do not agree that a credit card company is taking a chance on those ‘people’ they help, and thereby provide some assistance when no-one is looking.
Help with Credit Cards
Unfortunately, buying a product through an online store and paying for it using traditional methods does not make any sense if you don’t own a credit card. As a retailer and an online credit card merchant, I have seen many cases where the card I use on purchases has actually helped me sell my products more successfully and in a more attractive manner.
What many people should be aware of is that there are actually a few companies that provide credit card processing services to customers. These services are commonly referred to as ‘granting services’, and they often are offered through direct mail, on-line ordering, or through other methods.
For instance, most direct mail companies that I think operate and charge through sites like Amazon or other such sites will be offering direct mail services to the credit card merchant. A traditional merchant’s bureau would send mail to the credit card merchant, which serves as a physical address and tells them that they are eligible to receive a credit card. The merchant’s bureau then picks up the phone to complete the transaction.
