Our mission is to provide tech-enabled services that help small-to-medium-sized merchants compete and thrive. We are dedicated to providing you with the best customer service and technical expertise in the industry, 24/7.
Mercury is the original payment processing integrator, putting our technology into hundreds of POS systems for free. We pioneered a dealer-centric model for the sale of merchant services, instead of employing traditional distribution channels such as direct sales agents, independent sales groups, or agent banks. This model benefits merchants because it eliminates the need for salesmen who sell their payment processing and are never seen again, though they continue to make money on the merchant’s account. These middlemen are often not accountable when it comes to providing support, and have no contact with the merchant’s POS dealer, and no knowledge of the POS system functionality. Mercury changes that dynamic. Our unique business model eliminates third parties and allows POS vendors to become their merchants’ one-stop payment technology liaison. Mercury works closely with the dealer and the POS system developer, ensuring that everyone involved is knowledgeable about each merchant’s needs. Mercury also gave the industry its first card less loyalty solution that integrates mobile and social technology into POS systems. MercuryLoyalty™ is designed specifically for small — to medium-sized businesses to increase revenue and customer retention — helping put them on the same loyalty marketing playing field as big box retailers. MercuryLoyalty makes it easy to attract new customers, retain existing customers, understand buying behaviors, improve customer engagement, and measure ROI — all automatically.
Mercury has experienced rapid growth since its inception, with triple digit growth between 2004 and 2007. According to the Nilson Report, which ranks payment processors, we’re currently the 12th largest processor by transaction count. In addition, we now rank among the top five largest non-bank merchant acquirers in the U.S. by number of transactions. Mercury has received several esteemed awards from the payments industry in recent years. The awards given are voted on by thousands of professionals within the industry.
