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

TEMECULA, Calif. – September 12, 2018 — National Merchants Association (NMA) – a merchant advocacy group and innovative merchant services acquirer – is heading to Scottsdale, Ariz. to demonstrate the need for merchant advocacy and high-quality e-commerce solutions at the 2018 Western States Acquirer’s Association (WSAA) Conference, Sept. 12-13, 2018.

Leading the industry in High Risk Done Right® – including the acceptance of trial and nutraceutical business – for nearly 10 years, NMA will focus on merchant advocacy at WSAA. With talks of its competitive Schedule A, in-house underwriting and consultative, high-touch approach to merchant services, NMA is set to steal the show.

This year, NMA is providing unique and timely offerings in a payments landscape impacted by fraud and stringent regulatory guidelines. Additionally, the company is accepting partners with hard-to-place deals, and assisting their portfolio of merchants with chargeback and risk mitigation solutions.

“Everyone likes the rewards associated with doing work within the high-risk space, but few companies want to take the time to do high risk the right way,” says NMA CEO, Heather (Petersen) Altepeter. “NMA is different – we understand the industry and intricate needs of partners we serve, and work to empower them.”

NMA is a Platinum Sponsor at WSAA this year – presenting the Opening Reception with Exhibitors in the Vaquero Ballroom, Sept. 12, 5:30-7:45 p.m. Adding to event excitement, NMA will also host an exclusive, invite-only suite party; featuring a complimentary Sweet Oaks wine tasting.

Team NMA will be available at Table 69 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.
