Due to the nature of our service, there are a number of merchant service providers which offer effective solutions for merchants which may not be featured in our rankings. Our rankings consist of those which we have found to provide effective solutions to merchants on a consistent basis. As our listings can only contain a limited number of providers, we have opted to display the best based on our internal processes for research and analysis. While not every merchant service provider is going to be the best fit for every merchant, those we recommend meet their objectives, in our opinion, on a highly consistent basis and thus are ranked as the best in our rankings. We certainly urge merchants to perform their own research in order to determine which merchant service provider offers them the best solution based on their own needs and to use topcreditcardprocessors.com as a resource for their own research.
