First Merchant Payment Systems is a national merchant bankcard processing company established in 2001, and headquartered in Fort Myers, Florida. FMPS has grown into a leading provider of credit and debit card-based payment processing services to small and medium sized merchants across the United States. We have enjoyed and earned double digit growth each and every year by providing world class customer service to our merchants and unparalleled sales support to our agents and sales offices.

FMPS has earned a solid reputation as one of the premier processors in the country. Our senior management team has an average of fifteen years in the merchant banking and cash management industry which has allowed us to become a recognized and respected player in the payment processing industry. We forge lasting partnerships with merchants of all sizes, providing the same quality services to all. Our legacy of customer satisfaction and appreciation is well known.

We feel that First Merchant Payment Systems is unique in that we provide a one-step approach to transaction processing. We approve and activate merchant accounts, provide a competitive leasing program, ship and install equipment and provide 24/7 customer service, all in-house.

Our founders bring many years of transaction processing experience to the business and are committed to the ideal that the satisfaction of our merchants and agents is our most important responsibility. We appreciate the fact that our accomplishments are not completely our own. Without the merchants who place their trust in us and our loyal and growing sales team, we could not have achieved the level of success that we enjoy today. We feel that we have built the best team in the industry, and feel fortunate that you have taken an interest in learning more about us.

FMPS’ transaction processing capabilities include credit/debit cards, EBT, purchasing cards, stored value cards, proprietary cards, gift cards, checks, and other payment types. Additionally, First Merchants provides payment-processing services to many local and regional financial institutions.

First Merchants’ marketing philosophy is one dedicated to customer service. The Company has a team of highly experienced personnel to handle your customer’s needs. This includes custom software, providing back-office support functions including settlement reconciliation, risk management, security/fraud investigation, application processing, terminal programming, deployment and equipment repair. We believe that by delivering leading edge products and services combined with world class customer service we build long term relationships with our merchants.
