Payment processing with simple and honest pricing.

Simple and clear pricing contract icon.It's our belief that pricing should be simple, honest and easy to understand. We work constantly to educate merchants about interchange and are huge advocates for honest pricing. This is the foundational belief of our business, it's in our mission statement, and has remained that way since our launch almost 20 years ago.

If you have questions about discount rates, interchange, cross border fees, currency or foreign exchange fees (or anything related to the costs associated with online payments) don't hesitate to contact us.

I'm confused. What is a merchant account?

Question and answer icon

A merchant account is a bank account that is used to hold funds captured from credit card sales. Although you may not think of it on a day to day basis, whenever you use a credit card money has to actually move somewhere. That is what the merchant account is for. It holds funds that are captured from credit card sales. Funds are then transferred from your merchant account into your regular business bank account on a daily or weekly basis. We provide you with this merchant account so that your business can process credit cards. If you want to learn more about how it works you can take our e-commerce lesson.

Choose your preferred payment gateway.

We include the merchant account and payment gateway together as a bundled solution because it's everything you need to process payments. However, some merchants use specific software that requires a certain type of special integration. That's why we also support many popular payment gateway options such as Authorize.net. If you already have an existing or preferred gateway integration it shouldn't pose a problem. This helps to make implementing or migrating your payments to our processing service much easier because it reduces the possibility of technical or compatibility issues.

What's involved? How do I set it up?

When your application is received a review will be completed within a few business days. Upon completion of the review you'll receive an email with your account credentials and access to the payment system.

At that point you'll have access to the virtual terminal and can begin processing orders. If you have an online business you'll also be able to integrate your website to enable e-commerce payments.
