What We Are Not

We are not vendors of Telecom, Merchant Services or Small Package Shipping products or services, which means we don’t sell to you, but we do help you reduce costs.

What We Are

We are professional independent consultants helping you to profit by staying on top of the Telecom, Merchant Services and Small Package Shipping marketplace on your behalf – and making sure you don’t pay more than you should for those services.

Our Unique Offering – Contingent on Success

Schooley Mitchell will

Save you MONEY without sacrificing service

Merchant Services

Credit and debit card processing is often referred to as merchant services. Continuous calls from persistent salespeople are bothersome and time consuming. In such an over saturated market, it’s hard to know who to trust. Let us clear up the confusion.

Schooley Mitchell has developed robust analysis tools that identify and eliminate many of the fees associated with accepting payment cards. Our systematic auditing will reduce your electronic payment processing spend and improve services.

We analyze all of your merchant services systems including credit, debit, eCheck and ACH transactions. Oftentimes, savings can be implemented without having to change processors or switch equipment.
