Merchant Industry is Statewide merchants and National E payments. It is crazy that this one company, keeps changing names! They f*** every merchant they get and then changes their name to get a new group of clients to screw. The worst part about it is when they screw you, they then charge you $500-$1000 for cancelling, after they took their high fees. Plus their rates change every month and when you call to fight it they only bring it back down for only30 days.

Guys please dont get baited and switched by this company.

 The owner is Leo Vartonoff, which owns 22 cell phone stores and was under arrest to sim card fraud

His partner Clark karmier is a pimp just google him and you will see it all.

If their not a fraud company, why change the name every 6 months????? ask yourself that before moving forward with anyone from this company. 

well knew scam artists that work for them

#1 UPDATE Employee

Uneducated People Write Uneducated Statements

AUTHOR: Anonymous Employee - (United States of America)

I work for the company many years, and I personally know that what Merchant Industry does is not rip people off, but rather lower people's rates.  If they were doing something illegal or unethical, trust me VISA and MASTERCARD would have shut them down a long time ago.  WHich is not the case obviously.  The credit card processing industry is so heavily regulated, that companies doing illegal things or ripping people off would not be in business.  And as far as NAtional E-Payment and Statewide Merchants, they are sub-ISO's of Merchant Industry.  Merchant Industry never chnaged their name once since they started in business in 2007.  BTW, a sub-ISO is a sub contractor of the main ISO, Merchant Industry. 

The people writing these false and libelous statements are disgrubtled ex-employees caught doing illegal things and got fired.  Trust me, don't listen to these uneducated people.

this is bull

AUTHOR: Mike Greenburg - (United States of America)

i've worked for this company over four years and i've never seen this happen. this is an ex-employee which mostlikely couldn't cut it. not many people will make it to 4k a month because they couldn't deal rejection.

i no longer work with Merchant industry and they still pay me no questions asked.  if this ex-employee is for real why dont they put their name out there????
