A merchant account with a social impact
The preservation of values like equality and social justice takes on a whole new meaning in today’s world.
For Pride, a gay-owned and operated credit card processing company, the importance of playing an active role in protecting
the core beliefs of our community is an integral element of our business model. At Pride we use our income from merchant
services to generate a consistent flow of donations to causes that are critical to the wellbeing of the LGBTQIA community.
As a business owner you know that a merchant account is an unavoidable necessity. With Pride you will find satisfaction knowing that your processing dollars matter. In fact, they create a lasting social impact because processing with Pride allows you to support any cause near and dear to your heart without reaching into your pocket.

Who We Are
Pride Card Services started in 1997 as a small gay-owned and operated credit card processing company with the purpose of providing honest and affordable services to hard-working business owners. Our company was built on the principle of putting people above profits, and 20 years later, it remains our foundation and a big part of how we do things around here. We’ve grown into a well-respected company with a team of extremely talented individuals dedicated to supporting our merchants’ growth all the while contributing to the greater good. In 20 years, Pride has become one of the fastest growing companies in America and a major philanthropic organization. With a business model set on a guiding principle of generating a constant stream of charitable giving, Pride Card Services takes credit card processing beyond its primary purpose by providing ongoing support to causes that are important to our merchants and to the LGBTQIA community.
