We provide a well-rounded membership package so that you can tap into the programs and services that best fit your business needs.
NEW - Office Depot Supply discounts as a Chamber Member
NEW - Merchant Services Credit Card Discounted Processing with Affinity program member AdvoCharge
AdvoCharge has relationships with several merchant service processors, not just one, and works with their clients to pair them with the processor that best meets their needs. Rates are established at cost for the merchant, and AdvoCharge is compensated with a flat monthly fee equal to 10% of the savings they are able to generate for their customers compared to the fees charged by the merchant's previous credit card processor.
Chamber members working with AdvoCharge get the added benefit of an additional 10% discount off of AdvoCharge's already very low fees.
