CHICAGO, Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- FeeFighters has declared war on a notoriously inflated business expense, credit card processing fees, and so far they're winning. The comparison shopping website today announced it has saved businesses over $75 million in credit card processing fees over the past year, with many businesses owners seeing this expense practically cut in half since using FeeFighters. This company is also reporting rapid growth and plans for international expansion.
To date, over 25,000 businesses have used FeeFighters' free online comparison shopping engine to quickly find the best rates on credit card processing services. Merchants instantly get apples-to-apples bids and save an average of 40% on their credit card processing costs.
Since the beginning of 2011, traffic on feefighters.com has grown 5x. The site, which functions like Kayak or Expedia for credit card processing, allows merchants to search through vetted credit card providers for the best match and lowest rates in the same time it takes to comparison shop for airfare.
Since its U.S. launch in 2009, the FeeFighters team has tripled in size, and the company launched in Canada at the beginning of this year. Plans for full international expansion will be realized by the end of 2011.
"We are thrilled to be making such great progress and are glad so many businesses are seeing the value of our product," said FeeFighters CEO and Co-Founder Sean Harper. "There's no need for business owners to pay more than they have to for a parity service like credit card processing. FeeFighters makes it quick and easy to find the best rates, so businesses can get the same service for less money. It's an easy way for any company to improve their bottom line."
