Gotmerchant.com Corporate History Printer Friendly

It began in 1998, with the formation of a web hosting company called Simple Solutions (sshost.com). We soon realized there was of great need for merchant services among our ecommerce clients. Unfortunately, we were unable to find significant information while doing our extensive research and it resulted in the formation of an online guide called "Got Merchant Accounts" in 1999. The business name changed to Gotmerchant.com in early 2001.

In 2000, we formed a referral partnership with a merchant service provider. In 2003, we decided to get more involved by selling merchant services ourselves. The only way to guarantee our customers received the exceptional service they have come to expect was by dealing with them entirely. We are proud to announce Gotmerchant.com is a registered ISO of Visa, International, and MSP of MasterCard, International. Being a registered ISO/MSP not only displays the professionalism of our industry, it is also required by Visa/MC for any company soliciting credit card processing.

Over the past few years, we have setup merchants of all sizes ranging from small startups to multi-million dollar corporations. As we have done for thousands of Simple Solutions' customers during the past eight years, we will continue our efforts with Gotmerchant.com in providing top quality service. Given that we have access to the same pricing as any other provider or bank in the world, our customers have found us to excel in providing them with quality personal service not normally found in any industry today.
