The Payment Technology You Need, The Personal Service You Deserve

Payments, Your Way

Your needs are unique. Don’t settle for an off-the-shelf merchant services solution. Design a payment program that is the best fit for you.

There is a Big Difference Between a Payment Processor and a Payment Partner.

Other Companies

A Payment Processor sells software integration and payment processing services. Service levels are often spotty and impersonal. You and your customers are just account numbers to a vendor.

Wind River Payments

A Payment Partner works with you on your payment strategy. A partner ensures your merchant services program is modern, secure, and cost effective. You are a name and a face that a partner cares about. The one thing you are NOT? Just an account number.

Flow Like a River

Creative Problem Solving

Obstacles may arise but having access to Wind River’s experts and creative problem-solvers, those obstacles are just a rock in a river – we make sure the water keeps flowing right around it. Our software partners and merchant services customers get their own relationship manager who ensures your payment processing remains uninterrupted.

“I have…personally [experienced] card testing on five separate occasions with three different merchant processors and Wind River was the best to work with on this issue. [Our Relationship Manager] was knowledgeable on the steps to take…and [was] helpful in getting our account back up and able to accept payments quickly. It was a refreshing experience!”

No matter how your business changes, we’ll always be right here for you.
