'Twas The Night Before Settlement

'Twas the night before settlement, and all through the house,

All the merchants were busy, clicking their mouse.

Their batches were sent to their provider with care,

With hopes that their settlement soon would appear.


The customers had paid with their cards for a purchase,

And the batches were all made, and sent with a purpose.

The end of the holiday shopping season was near,

It is time for all batches of transactions to clear.


When into my inbox arose such a clatter,

“Your settlement may take a week, due to various factors.”

So onto my keyboard, I jumped in a flash,

To find another provider whose times could out match.


The internet search had too many providers to show,

Especially because I knew not where to go.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,

But a purple zebraff, and a promise to be clear.


With a customer focus, right their as the schtick,

I thought to myself “this must be a trick!”.

The ability to help with issues as they came,

Bambora, I felt, almost knows me by name.


Now this payment solution, I can get behind,

It also helps that their customer care is so kind.

A real person to talk to, when I need it most,

They answer as quick as it takes bread to toast.


I picked up the phone, and dialed right away,

My call was answered quickly, and not the next day.

They set me up fast; the integration was easy,

When I uploaded batch files, the process was breezy.


The settlement cycle is almost complete,

With Bambora’s payment service, it’s tough to compete.

The typical wait was three days, from a week,

I could now run my business and put up my feet.


Bambora has landed, I knew not from where,

But they saved me time, and from pulling out my hair.

I got one last message, as my batch went out of sight,

“Happy settlement to all, and to all a good-night!”
