Partner with CMS
Complete Merchant Solutions is a Full Service Provider (FSP). This means we are one of only a handful of payment processors in the U.S. that manages all aspects of the merchant life-cycle internally. This includes underwriting, merchant boarding, risk management, customer and technical support and product development. This distinction from other processing companies who are merely Independent Sales Organizations (ISO’s) affords us far greater control over the accounts we accept and maintain and greater flexibility over the pricing we’re able to extend to our partners. CMS offers our partners multiple programs that can be tailored to fit your individual needs and we are firmly committed to offering you every product and service you need to stay relevant in this hyper-competitive industry. As a partner of CMS you are automatically connected to a dedicated team of support agents and consultants that have a vested interest in your success. Take advantage of our extensive industry experience, deep technical knowledge and innovative solutions to take your business to the next level.
