The “Personal Service” You May Expect From Your Local Bank.
You may wish to do business with your local bank because of the personal service they provide when handling your bank accounts. It’s only natural to assume that same kind of service with your merchant account. But this is often not true.
Most local banks do not have the payment processing or the technology expertise to support a payments solution. They often outsource their processing to a separate company, so you may not be doing business with your bank. Instead of dealing with the one local representative you have come to trust, you are calling an 800 number just like everyone else.
Here are the benefits of choosing us versus your local bank.

Does not impose a Cross Default Clause and lessens the risk of having your merchant account frozen.
We provide a FREE detailed pricing analysis – uncovering the effective rate you are paying for processing and how to improve upon it.
Most banks outsource.
The bank ends up being the “middle man” and the business owner ends up paying a higher marked-up price.
Supports more than 1,800 technology partners.
Specializing in payment technology since 1995.
