New member of the Internet-based family accelerates online credit card processing for small businesses
SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA – November 28, 2012 - Unitedweb, a private equity investment and management firm, announced today that it has joined forces with Merchant Resource Group to launch a new company that serves the small business market, AcceptSafe, which delivers credit card payment processing services. The focus of AcceptSafe is to provide new and emerging online vendors, specialty retailers and small corporations in competitive markets with customized, streamlined payment acceptance and processing programs for online, offline and mobile credit card purchases. AcceptSafe's customized payment processing program is a robust, state-of-the-art product that is designed to maximize the value of every exchange.
"The portfolio of AcceptSafe products has been developed to be digitally powerful and safe," explains Unitedweb Chairman and CEO, Thomas Gorny. "As the small business market continues to evolve and become more sophisticated, the standard has emerged for them to accept credit cards as a form of payment. However, the approval process can be time-consuming, tedious and costly. Our goal is that AcceptSafe will accelerate and simplify that process for small business owners. The payment system is executed with extreme security and precision. We are proud to welcome AcceptSafe into the Unitedweb family, and we are committed to building this business."
"With more than 12 years in the financial services industry supporting small business owners that are often underserved in the typical payment processing world, we are excited to be part of a company that is dedicated to seeing small businesses succeed," states Peter Damato, president of AcceptSafe. "Unitedweb is the ideal business family for AcceptSafe, given the strong portfolio of Internet-based companies. Online payment processing complements the current technology services and contributes to a complete solution for business owners looking to advance their company online."
The ability for merchants to offer a protected credit card transaction option is an expectation in today's business world. The launch of AcceptSafe will enable small business owners an affordable, trustworthy payment processing option that has a simple application process and high approval rating.
