Credit Card Sweep Image

Most Credit Unions make every attempt to offer a clean, tidy and efficient financial haven so members walk into an aesthetically pleasing and welcoming environment. However, many of the processes that take place behind the scenes may not employ the cleanest, most simplified way of doing things.

A prime example of such untidiness occurs when Credit Union employees routinely enter all of their members’ credit card advances and payments into their core system—only to repeat the entry into the processor’s website. Most likely, your staff finds these tasks tiresome and would prefer a more efficient way to handle such processes.   

Let Sharetec do a “clean sweep” of your process with its Credit Card Sweep—a product that immediately “clears the way” for improvement and ends untidy repetition. This innovative feature enables employees to simply enter a credit card advance or a payment like any other transaction, allowing it to be processed over the counter in a single transaction. And at the end of the day, the Sharetec system “tidies up” the process by forwarding all of your credit card transactions in the form of an aggregated payment file to your vendor/processor.

Clearly, Sharetec’s Credit Card Sweep offers a “sweeping” improvement, one that simplifies processes and has the potential to reduce errors, all while saving your staff valuable time to devote to other important tasks.

Credit unions rely on non-interest income as a reliable source of revenue. Courtesy pay is one of those services that credit union can offer their members to help the member stay in the good graces of their creditors and other vendors. Sharetec provides credit unions with the next generation service in which tiers dictate what fees the member pays for this service.

Courtesy Pay covers overdrafts, up to an approved limit, in exchange for a flat fee per overdraft transaction. The member receives the protection from bouncing a check, which saves the member embarrassment as well as protecting their credit score. A fee is then charged to the member for the service of covering the check despite insufficient funds in the member’s account.

Under a tiered approach to courtesy pay, members that use the service the most get charged the higher tier rate while the other members enjoy a reduced rate. Because of this increased rate tier, many credit unions see a significant boost in their monthly income. One credit union saw an 11 percent increase when they made the switch from a flat rate to the tiered model. Click here to read our case study on Tiered Courtesy Pay.

Tiered Courtesy Pay offers all the benefits of its flat-rate predecessor and comes highly recommended by industry leaders. All In all, credit unions see increases in monthly income while members enjoy the benefit of lower fees. Sharetec continues to provide cutting edge solutions for all size credit unions and is an industry leading core processing provider.
