SMALL BUSINESS RELIEF PROGRAM
Dear Universal Processing merchants and partners —
Universal Processing’s leadership team has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, primarily as it affects the communities in which our partners and customers are located. Though more and more confirmed cases are appearing all across the country, our team is dedicated to taking steps to ensure business continuity as well as the health and safety of our team.
We would like to reassure you, our partners, that during this time we will continue to assist small and medium-sized business merchants in accepting payments using our various payment processing terminals.
For many years now, our team has effectively used cloud-based tools as part of our daily operations. Though the COVID-19 outbreak has brought with it an abundance of complications and dangers, these tools grant our staff the ability to work remotely as they need to, based upon local conditions. Since the beginning of this pandemic, we have been preparing and devising plans to enable our team to be available for sales duties and merchant support, whether they are working from the office or remotely. Through intensive training and technology, our team is prepared to serve you as if everything was working as normal, regardless of the local conditions.
For the past 2 months, Universal Processing has always been fighting this anti-coronavirus battle with our own efforts. In February, we launched the Wuhan Donation Campaign (www.uprocessing.com/wuhan). By March 5th, we were honored to have over 100 merchants on our donation list with a total amount of $10,800 directly given to three international charities. Given the situation rapidly evolving, we feel no hesitation to step forward again and help out our local merchants in the U.S.
Since March 16, Governors in at least 19 states have all announced policies that place restrictions on restaurants and bars. It’s a heavy strike on the restaurant industry and everyone’s daily life. After careful preparation, Universal Processing integrated all the available talents and resources and is ready to launch a contact-free support program to facilitate our restaurant merchants with their take-out and delivery services. If your businesses are affected by the restaurant restriction, we’d like to offer you free and professional support, including delivery poster design, online ordering website setup, social media account setup, low-interest business loans, and guidance on applying for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program at Small Business Administration. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a one-on-one consultation.
Undoubtedly, you are concerned about the continuity of your business at this time, and are focused on maximizing your productivity despite these unfortunate conditions. On behalf of all of us at Universal Processing: we are here to serve you and help you through every step of this trying time. If there is anything our team can do to help you in your efforts, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
Thank you for taking the time to read through this information. We will continue to be in touch as the situation progresses, and we urge you to reply to this email if you have any questions.

Universal Processing, LLC.
Helping small businesses has always been at the core of Universal Processing’s mission. As the situation continues to develop and new policies affecting business owners come to light, we are ready to launch this Small Business Relief Program to all of our current and prospective merchants to help them maintain their businesses during these trying times.
We’re offering the following free services to impacted small businesses, with a special focus on assisting with the transition to comply with the mandated shift to online-ordering and take-out only business.
