How do we do it?

When it comes to Payment Processing charges, for example, you could challenge your existing suppliers, or switch to an alternative partner – but how confident are you that you’ve got the best deal?

In practice, it’s time-consuming and difficult, unless you understand the complex charging mechanisms used by UK acquiring banks and have considered each one’s strenghts and weaknesses.

As the original designers of the software used to calculate 30% of all debit and credit card transactions in the UK, and backed by years of experience in helping businesses to compare the market, we’re experts in the field, with up-to-date understanding of what’s good right now – and in the future.

That’s the CPRAS effect.

Case study - Paul James Jewellers

"Paul James Jewellers recently engaged with CPRAS as part of a Joint Procurement service being offered by the Oxted Business Improvement District, of which we are a member. CPRAS initially undertook an analysis of our monthly credit card charges before recommending an alternative provider. We did expect to make some savings but were delighted with the estimated saving of over £2,000 per annum. We are currently engaged in the process of switching which CPRAS are guiding us through. We have found CPRAS to be very professional in their approach and we would not hesitate to recommend them.’ - Tom Barrs, Owner
