National Merchants Association Talks High Risk Done Right at ASW 2019

Payments company now accepting hard-to-place business models shunned by competitors


TEMECULA, Calif. – December 27, 2018 — National Merchants Association (NMA) – a merchant advocacy group and innovative merchant services acquirer – is heading to Las Vegas to demonstrate the need for merchant advocacy and high-quality e-commerce solutions at the 2019 Affiliate Summit West (ASW) event, Jan. 6-8, 2019.

Leading the industry in High Risk Done Right® – including the acceptance of credit repair, subscription and nutra business – for years, NMA will focus on helping high-risk merchants and partners secure approvals at ASW. NMA will also present information about the Responsible Traffic Association (RTA) and the initiatives the payments industry can implement to demonstrate self-governance abilities.

NMA’s offerings at this year’s event are unique and timely in a payments landscape still reeling from recent regulatory changes.

“Every few years, card brands and governing bodies shake up the payments ecosystem,” says NMA CEO, Heather (Petersen) Altepeter. “This year is no different. However, what is different is our plan to tackle these changes through the Responsible Traffic Association (RTA) while still approving MIDs quickly and efficiently.”

Team NMA will be available at Booth K15 during exhibit hours for merchants and partners interested in learning more about industry-leading solutions. To schedule a meeting or get in touch with one of NMA’s payments experts in advance, please visit or call 866-509-7199.
