MCSNet had a 1.5% discount rate and 99% of our business was "card-not-present."

Yes, we worked HARD to get that. The best rate was found with the bank that handled our business accounts, and I shopped it HARD.

No, I would not have paid 3% or more. That was ****ing loan-shark territory, and there were plenty of people trying to get us to take such a "deal".

They all, to an individual, got a string of 4-letter words back at them, and most involved some sort of threat of dismemberment or non-consensual sex aimed at the salesperson as well.

This was in the 1990s, so... yeah.
