Financial services company’s progressive offerings improve bottom line for merchants, partners

TEMECULA, Calif. – June 13, 2018 — National Merchants Association (NMA) – an innovative merchant services provider, pro-business advocate and payments acquirer – is heading to Chicago to showcase industry-leading, e-commerce and brick-and-mortar solutions at the 2018 Midwest Acquirer’s Association (MWAA) Conference, July 25-26, 2018.

Leading the industry in surcharge and High Risk Done Right® – including the acceptance of trial and nutra business – for nearly 10 years, NMA is on a mission to keep more money in the pockets of merchants and partners by mitigating risks and lowering business overhead. To aid these efforts, NMA is presenting not only its recognized Surcharge program, but also innovative e-commerce solutions to MWAA attendees.

NMA’s Surcharge program is aimed at saving businesses money by passing processing costs along to customers. For years, regulatory requirements forbade merchants in many states – including California – from imposing a surcharge on credit card customers. However, with the surcharge ban recently ruled unconstitutional in states such as Florida and New York, NMA’s Surcharge program is the ticket to improving merchants’ bottom lines.

A crucial key to merchant success, NMA’s Surcharge program is just one way the company is working to meet business needs. A testament to its commitment to merchant advocacy, NMA is also accepting partners with hard-to-place deals, and assisting their portfolio of merchants with chargeback and risk mitigation solutions. These unique offerings are timely and necessary in a payments landscape impacted by fraud and stringent regulatory guidelines.

“NMA leverages exemplary merchant service to offer customized solutions that ultimately keep their businesses thriving longer,” says NMA CEO, Heather Altepeter.

“Merchants absorb ample costs outside of payment processing, and partners work meticulously to land hard-to-place, high-risk deals – NMA is helping them save and make money, not waste it.”

NMA will be available at booth PW02 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.
