Carmen Gates

President of POS Consultants

When we talk financial numbers, we’re talking transparency, non-negotiable security, and a dedication to making your payment solutions as seamless and easy as possible.

Carmen’s payment acceptance career began in 1994. Back then, this ambitious professional woman worked for some of the largest payment processors in the nation.

Relationships We’ve Built for Your Advantage

Over the years, Carmen forged valuable industry relationships which allowed POS Consultants to attain highly competitive pricing from its vendors and leverage exceptional service and support.

By utilizing multiple processing partners and vendors, we can negotiate the RIGHT processing solution for YOUR business model, not the processing solution that other companies are exclusively contracted to that limit their pricing and product options to just one provider.

There are no shortcuts to finding the right POS Systems and Payment Solutions. There’s just insight and expertise.

    We Value Your Trust Over All

    If we had a dollar for every time a customer asked us about the security of our products, we’d be rich. We understand concerns over safety. It’s why we reassure potential clients with our A+ Better Business Bureau (BBB) reviews.

    It’s also why we espouse transparency in our own customer-focused communications. Want a look behind the scenes of our credit card processing procedure?

    How it works:

    • When we submit you for credit card processing, we’re using a highly secured connection with our well-established processing partner
    • The transaction is submitted through the Credit Card Network and then rerouted to the issuing bank
    • The bank approves or declines your submission, sending the decision to your POS System faster than you could say payment acceptance pre-approval
    • Receive funds to your checking account the next day when you batch-out credit card payments daily
