What we are thankful for.

Posted on

Here at Securus Payments we are thankful for many things. First and foremost, we are thankful for our employees that help us run the company. Portland Business Journal for naming us fastest growing company in Portland, OR. Inc. Magazine’s recognition of our hard work, dedication, achievements and naming us to the top 500 fastest growing companies in the nation. First data and their global leasing department for continuing to do business with us and naming us to their President’s Club. TASQ technologies for providing the world’s most reliable and secure terminals. The Military order of the Purple Heart Chapter 72 for their support and using our donations for a just cause. Payprotec for believing us in the beginning and helping us move to the next level. Thankful for our families and friends for their continuing support.

But we are most thankful for the merchants that have chosen US as their credit card processor. Without our merchants, we could never be where we are today.

Every single one of our merchants is important to us. They are the ones driving our business. That is why we will ALWAYS offer the lowest price on credit processing as our gift back to them. We guarantee the lowest prices by offering a $500 dollar incentive to anyone that can find a lower price than us.

If you have questions or would like to find out more about how we can save your company money please call us at 1-866-649-1324 or email

We wish everyone to have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!



A New Credit Card Standard, Is Your Business Ready?

Posted on

Coming in 2015 Visa and MasterCard are switching to a chip based credit card (EMV) instead of magnetic strips. This will dramatically lower the amount of stolen credit cards and fraud. The major advantage to using a chip based credit card is that it is nearly impossible to counterfeit. Each transaction has a unique “value” assigned to it. Even if the credit card is counterfeited, because of this unique “value” the card creates the transaction will be automatically rejected.

This standard has been adopted in over 130 countries with the United States following quickly. Over 1.34 billion EMV compliant credit and debit cards have already been issued by Visa and MasterCard. When the EMV standard is enforced by the major credit cards, liability of the sale moves from the card issuer to the merchant if the merchant used the magnetic strip as the swipe method. This will increase the risk of liability to the merchant who have chosen not to make the switch to new EMV compliant terminals.

Securus Payments offers multiple terminals that will allow your company to be in compliance when chip based card transaction will be enforced. Being just a year away get your business up to standard now, so that the transition will be seamless with no downtime. By being compliant your company will cut costs significantly in terms of fraud.

To inquire or take advantage of our new chip based card terminals please call us at 1-866-649-1324 or email us:



Why Choose Securus Payments

Posted on

Securus Payments offers the lowest cost merchant processing service nationwide. But we also have many other facets to merchant processing too. That is why over 7000 merchants and counting have chosen us as their processor. We offer stability, security, simplicity, service, and savings.

We are a direct processor for First Data, which is the world’s largest payment processing company. Because we have a direct relationship with them we can offer the fastest processing time, minimal time outs, and least amount of downtime. This decreases your downtime and increases your profits.

All of the machines we offer have the upmost security. The machines we send out are all PCI (Payment Compliance Industry) compliant. We send out security updates as soon as they are available to all of our machines to ensure loss of data does not happen between the machine and us.

Our customer service is what really keeps over 7000 merchants with us. Our account executives knows our services inside and out so if you have questions we can answer them in a timely fashion. We also have a local team of customer service agents based in our Portland, OR office. They can answer all of your billing or account issues. We also offer after hours support through First Data.

The simplicity of our billing statements is second to none. Instead of having more than 1,000 different rates for cards (interchange) we only offer 5 rates. This type of billing is easy to understand so when you run a card, you’ll know exactly how much it will cost your business. Our machines will automatically detect if the card is debit and charge accordingly. This decreases any confusion you may have when you run a card.

And the main reason most companies switch to us is the savings we can provide. Once you sign up, you are guaranteed the lowest rates available. We back that statement up with a $500 guarantee in writing that no one can beat our rates. This is because we know there are no other companies out there that can beat our rates.

With our charitable donations program in place, we are the nation’s leader in credit processing and look forward to doing business with you! For more information or to take advantage of our services please call us at 1-866-649-1324 or email:

Charitable Donations Program

Posted on Updated on

Since 2009 Securus Payments has been involved with charitable giving. Our founders had been involved with the Army Wounded Warrior and given back generously their time, effort, elbow grease and money. With our company continuing to expand and reach unprecedented levels, we decided it was time to start our charitable donations program.

Our new program allows the merchant (if they chose to) to donate $100 to American Red Cross, National Breast Cancer Foundation, Make A Wish Foundation, Coalition for the Homeless, or any other charity of their choice when they sign up for credit processing and merchant services through Securus Payments. The form is simple and uncomplicated to make sure the whole donation goes to where it is intended. The merchants can also designate a charity of their choice.

Securus wants to give back to the community as much as the community has given to us. We would like to thank all of the merchants that will participate in this program. Their donations will make a world of difference to the recipients.

For more information, inquiries or to take advantage of our donations programs today please email us at We look forward to hearing from you today!
