Payline Data Services are an ethical merchant payments provider. Their integrity is their promise to their partners, but this is done without compromising on value for money, or value added to the businesses using them. They are swiftly gaining pace as the major contender for enabling businesses to complete transactions in their favored way across the board: from stores, to online, to mobile Apps. They are one of the largest merchant payments providers in the country.
Utilising their financial sense, as well as understanding the market perfectly, they are able to process over 30 billion transactions with over 240,000 merchant accounts. Yet they do this ethically, and 10% of each account’s revenue (for profit-making organizations) is donated to a charitable organization. More importantly, it’s the customer who gets to pick the charity.
Additionally, they are a payment provider of choice for Non-Profit Organisations themselves, as they work the market and strategically manage their partnerships to ensure that these organizations receive the best bang for their buck.
With their headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, they are registered as an Independent Sales Organization/Merchant Services Provider (ISO/MSP) of Fifth Third Bank, Cincinnati, Ohio.
Flexibility translates to customisable yet simple options for all customers. Payline Data Services have transparent pricing structures and easily understandable contracts.

Payline Data get consistently great ratings and the web is full of great reviews and recommendations. There’s only been one complaint filed with BBB, back in 2013, and no easily traceable negative reviews on the web. It’s easy to see why: The Pricing is good, transparent and fair – it is easy to understand how Payline as a Merchant Processor can add real value to most businesses. We like that there are no hidden fees and what you see is what you get.
The customer service and technical support helps Payline stand out from the crowd. You as the user can choose which avenue of support suits you best and there is a fantastic knowledge base to draw on.
Concerns and negatives for Payline are minimal. The technical choices can be a little overwhelming, however the high quality customer and sales support plugs this gap. Similarly, the Add-On services are not straight-forwardly portrayed, but again, Customer Service and Technical Support are quick to help ensure you get what you need.
What really makes Payline stand out from the crowd is their integrity and ethical approach to business. Their charitable support is consistent, transparent and worthwhile, with 10% of each account’s revenue going directly to a charity of that businesses choice. Additionally, Payline employees are given paid time off to pursue voluntary roles. There are custom Charity Pricing Plans. Added to this, they are now formulating grants to charities and Non-Profit Organizations.
