CardWeb.com’s CardData database of Company Profiles today features Integrity Payment Systems.
Integrity Payment Systems is a family owned business processing over $3 billion per year in credit card volume. The owners named the company “Integrity” because after working for many years in the credit card processing industry they came to believe that a company with strong values and a belief in playing fair with the customer would ultimately win over the shenanigans so often played by companies in the industry. Integrity boarded its first merchant in January, 2003. By putting their values into practice, Integrity quickly gained not only success, but a Premier Provider reputation. After only 10 years in business, Integrity is servicing thousands of merchants in all 50 states. Even more impressive, the company is endorsed by a number of well known, highly successful industry partners.
Headquartered in Des Plaines, Illinois, Integrity is made up of approximately 250 experienced people (about 90 employees) dedicated to delivering on the company promise. Unlike most processors who are really disguised sales offices, Integrity actually settles the merchant account, provides a flexible and robust payments platform and helps merchants solve their most pervasive business problems. Integrity implements all key business functions in-house, while employing top quality people and giving them the training and flexibility needed to meet the customers’ needs. Within the Integrity group is an internal sales force and a national network of independent sales organizations and individual contractors who know that Integrity offers Main Street merchants as much value as possible for every dollar they spend on credit card processing.
Integrity Payment Systems has historic roots in the Beauty and Hair Salon Industry. When the company was started, as a direct settlement institution for credit card processing, the owners set out to not only offer Salons fairness and cost savings on processing, but also to offer Added Value in business tools, support and equipment. Within a few years the Salon industry giant, Redken, endorsed Integrity as an Industry Partner, recommending Integrity to salons across their network. Today Integrity enjoys an exclusive relationship with L’Oreal and all of their professional products division companies (including Redken) as well as Salon Product Distributors, stores, schools, and various Salon-related companies. In the intervening years, Integrity has received endorsements from a number of additional Industry Partners who, like Redken, could see the value Integrity brings to their clients. Our Industry Partners trust Integrity’s credit card processing, knowing that their clients will not be exploited by hidden and unscrupulous fees. They also see great benefit to their clients in our Value Added services, equipment, software and in-house customer service.
