Products and Services 

Durango Merchant Services offers multiple basic products and services to its customers:

  • Gateway Services: Durango Merchant Services offers a wide variety of in-house gateway services, including demo logins, control panel quick start instructions, integration options, shopping carts, QuickClick details, recurring billing, Authorize.net emulator, customer vault, QuickBooks, SyncPay plug-in, Android and Apple mobile processing app, APIs, and resources for download.
  • Check Processing: Durango Merchant Services utilizes the latest technology to allow businesses to easily accept payments by check or credit card, either in-person, over the phone, through the mail, or via the Internet. Businesses will run more efficiently with payment options designed to boost sales, reduce expenses, speed up collections, and protect against fraud.
  • Equipment Sales: Durango Merchant Services fully discloses the cost of every single credit card machine it offers and encourages businesses to make the smart decision and buy outright. 

Multi-Currency Accounts 

If an individual wants to open their business up to international customers in a way that will make things simple both for the shopper and for them, Durango Merchant Services offers a multi-currency merchant account. An international multi-currency credit card processing account will allow businesses to accept payments via MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, Diner’s Club, PayPal, JCB, and debit cards (in the United States) through a single payment gateway. This payment gateway translates into 15 languages and is compatible with 26 international currencies used by buyers and sellers in more than 200 countries globally.

Allen A Miami, FL

I was searching for a Company that would work with me since i have what is considered "High Risk" business. Saw, a company called Durango Merchant Services and I immediately clicked on them since I have lived in Durango before. Asked to speak to a person in new accounts and I got Nathan. He worked with me getting my account approved with no hassle, anytime i have a question, he replies immediately. I pride my self on customer service since its hard to come by and the service i have received from Durango Merchant Services and Nathan are second to none. I highly recommend this company, also.. I got a lower rate than my previous processor. Amazing right:??? Anyways, be sure to ask for Nathan, you wont be dissapointed.

I'm in a high-risk industry and was recommended Durango Merchant Services after being terminated from a 3rd party payment processor. Brad responded immediately and was able to acquire me my own merchant account in an incredibly short amount of time. 7 years later i am still loyal to this company and wouldn't be in business without them. I am extremely grateful they are just an email away to assist me when something comes up. Thanks so much Brad. I look forward to another 7 years with Durango Merchant Services!

After an atrocious experience with a competing processing company (Payline Data), Durango Merchant Services has been a stellar experience for me. The sales representative was extremely transparent and explained every fee that would be charged and why. The signup process just took a couple of days, after which I was rolling, processing credit card transactions. So far, everything has been smooth sailing, without unexpected surprises or excessive fees. Thanks, Durango!
