Powering everyday giving

Over the past few years Merchant Warrior has grown, exceeding all our expectations.

We were able to do it this, because of you!

If you use one of our super-cool payment solutions already, you have most certainly experienced the quality of customer focus and commitment to outstanding service.

We care about you, our customers. We know you LOVE us, because our growth, till date, has mostly been with your support (through our referral program etc.).

Now. It is our turn to give back.

We plan to expand into, and continue our support of the Not for Profit (NFP) sector, in the great work that they do every day. We are committed to supporting our client NFPs in their endeavours.

How do we plan to do this? 

We already have some amazing solutions and plans in place for the Not for profit sector including:

  • 50 % off your Annual fees
  • Very low transaction fees (Yes. As a NFP, if you are paying anything more than $20c/transaction, you are paying way too much)
  • Support in integrating with your existing online donation page, platform or solution.
  • Testing facilities for the solution
  • Expert advice

Need more reasons to give us a call?

We are very proud of our referral program. It helps our customers profit by helping others.  Read more about it here.

We are serious about helping you.  We mean it.

To get things in motion, we have hired a new Marketing & Communications Manager. Please welcome, the newest addition to our team, Treassa Joseph (Tina). Tina brings with her a wealth of experience of working not only in the IT and Telecom sectors, but has also worked in various Business Development, Marketing and Communications roles in the Events, PR and NFP sector.

Together with our existing partners we offer a variety of online payment solutions for the sector. In her role, Tina will also be working on building partnerships with other platforms that support the NFPs.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Seasons Greetings

Christmas and the New Year are upon us once again and there is no better way to celebrate than to relax, take some time off and enjoy the holidays with your family.

Here at Merchant Warrior, we regard our merchants as our extended family and as 2013 draws to a close, we would like to thank you (our merchants) for your support.

In 2013, we made a few (major and minor) strides to ensure we continue to provide you with the best payment solution you can ask for.

Our platform continues to be rated by our acquiring partners as one of the best payment processing platforms available in the market today.

Early 2014 will be an exciting time for our merchants as we continue to expand our operations and improve out processing platform.

Come Easter time and we will have some “Easter Egg” surprises that will also be available to our merchants as we look at beneficial partnerships with our acquiring partners.

Every year we thank our merchants for their input into our platform. Without their feedback we would not have been able to improve and grow our platform to what it is today.

It has been our pleasure serving merchants around the globe in 2013.

As always, it is our constant endeavour to provide our merchants and their customers with the payment platform of the future, Today.

We hope that you have a safe, enjoyable and prosperous holiday season with your family and friends and look forward to working with you in 2014.

Cool Gel Mat chooses Merchant Warrior

Summer is coming! And with that in mind we are happy to announce one of our most recent clients –  Cool Gelmat.

Introducing the Cool Gelmat,a special cooling mat that will provide users who struggle with heat issues with comfort and relief especially during the warmer months when many people find it difficult to get a good night’s sleep.

“Anyone trying to keep cool during summer will find relief with the Cool Gelmat, without the electricity bill,” says Nicky Buckley.

How does the Cool Gel Mat work?

The unique heat absorbing gel eliminates excess body heat allowing you to experience cooling relief for up to 2 hours, thus encouraging a comfortable night’s sleep and the opportunity to cool the body and fall asleep more easily.

The Cool Gelmat requires no electricity to stay cool or to recover its cooling ability, so you can enjoy instant relief again and again without ongoing power costs.

Cool Gelmat ambassador Nicky Buckley said the product is great for the whole family, especially during the warmer months; with rising electricity costs many families are wary of how much they switch on the air conditioner.

“Anyone trying to keep cool during summer will find relief with the Cool Gelmat, without the electricity bill,” Nicky said.

“It can be used not only when lying in bed, but also sitting on the couch, at the office, while travelling, or even while doing exercise such as yoga or Pilates.”

“The Cool Gelmat is quite outstanding. Anyone undergoing oncology treatment such as radiation therapy or experiencing the symptoms of multiple sclerosis may benefit from the Cool Gelmats cooling relief.”

What else do I need to know?

The Cool Gelmat comes in three sizes to accommodate different mattresses and a range of uses. These sizes include pillow size to target smaller areas like the head or feet, up to its largest size, which can fit two across on a king size bed.

Cool Gelmat’s manufacturing process is patented which means it is the only one that always stays flat and never goes lumpy – ensuring years of hassle-free cooling relief.

The Cool Gelmat is currently available from Chemmart, National Pharmacies, Pharmores Pharmacies, Bedshed, Snooze, Forty Winks, Sleep Doctor, Dreamland Bedding and Bedroom, Beds’R’us, Home Express, Sleeping Giant, Regal Mattress.

MW Supports B4B!

What is Bargains 4 Business?

Bargains 4 Business is the brainchild of Sydney-based advertising and media professional Mikel Kew. It is one of the first group buying sites in the market to focus solely on business-to-business sales. Their ultimate aim? To achieve huge savings for their Australia-wide community of business customers, while creating an explosion of new business for their suppliers. To learn more about how B4B deals work visit www.bargains4business.com.au

Why use Bargains 4 Business?

Building on the hugely successful group buying concept employed by Groupon, Spreets and Cudo, www.bargains4business.com.au has tailored the deal system to the needs of business customers to help them get back on track.

Bargains 4 Business deals bring customers extraordinary savings on business-related goods and services – everything from office cleaning and copy paper to top class chauffeurs – while delivering an explosion of new patronage to suppliers.

“CEOs, managers and purchasing officers shouldn’t have to sift through bikini waxes and pedicures to find great business deals like printing services and stationary supplies,” says Sydney-based Bargains 4 Business Director, Mikel Kew.

Unlike consumer driven sites our daily deals are selected specifically for their appeal to business customers”.

Businesses can no longer afford to take a risk with conventional “scatter gun” forms of advertising that may or may not hit their target. With group buying, suppliers only pay a commission on their resulting sales if target numbers of customers are reached and the deals go through.

“We are committed to featuring deals that achieve great value for both the customer and the business advertising the deal,” Mr. Kew explained. “We work closely with each supplier to carefully structure deals that are not only viable for their business, but also encourage additional sales and ongoing customer relationships.”

Australian enterprises need all the help they can get in the current financial climate, whether they are desperately trying to find new customers or diligently trying to reduce costs. B4B creates a win-win situation: business customers are guaranteed savings of at least 40% off essential products and services, while suppliers rapidly expand their customer base.

To further aid the business community Bargains 4 Business is looking for deserving businesses that need a hand to pull them through the downturn. If you know a business that offers top quality products or services, but is currently feeling the pinch, nominate them for our monthly “Deserve A Deal” promotion. We will reward their efforts with a free deal from one of our suppliers.

B2B with B4B!

PCI DSS v2.0

logo-pci

Each year we have an onsite audit completed by our registered QSA (Securus Global) in order to ensure that all components of our payment platform including our business processes are PCI DSS compliant.

Tier 1 PCI DSS v2.0 – Certified!

In August 2010 the PCI SSC announced that the PCI DSS v2.0 would be published in October of 2010. A list of changes that have been made between PCI DSS v1.2 and PCI DSS v2.0 can be found here.

Thanks to the efforts of all staff we have been certified by Securus Global as a Tier 1 PCI DSS v2.0 payment gateway.

Merchants that take advantage of the Merchant Warrior payment platform can rest assured that all products have been thoroughly assessed and will continue to maintain the highest level of compliance.

The introduction of our Token Payments solution (including Tokenized Batch Payments), Transparent Redirect and Hosted Payments has aided a number of organizations in maintaining the highest level of compliance and reducing the costs that are associated with the PCI DSS.

We owe a great deal of thanks to the support that we have received from our acquiring partners (National Australia Bank, Westpac Banking Group, Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Limited, Commonwealth Bank of Australia), our merchants and of course our QSA – Securus Global.

MW Welcomes Broo!

You Brooty!

Broo - Australia. Our Home. Our Beer.

As we all prepare for Australia day one man has set his goals helping all Australian’s ‘Live The Dream’. Kent Grogan is offering 10 shares for each carton of Broo beer purchased from his website come tomorrow. The idea behind this is to keep Broo 100% Australian owned and give each Australian the chance to take part in being a part of an Australian beer company. It’s also great to see the Broo team supporting the flood victims by offering to donate to those flood effected communities.

“Broo is 100% Australian owned and has the belief that beer is beer, great beer is better and we should all drink great beer. Broo stands for a lot of people. It’s for everyone who works hard, everyone who did, everyone who can’t, won’t or doesn’t need to. It stands for pride in our country and it’s dedicated to everyone who cared enough about this country to do something about it. It’s about having a go, getting it done, getting up and getting on with it. It’s a bloody road sign on a stubby of beer, nothing subtle about that, but deadly proud and broodifully honest. Come on the ride with us. Get onto the Broo. Stay on the Broo.”Broo.com.au

 

Have a Session!

We wish Kent and the Broo team all the best and would like to know that we’ll be right behind them doing our part to keep Broo Australian owned. What better way to celebrate Australia day than to crack open a nice cold Broo and celebrate the country we live in.
