The World's Best Merchant Service Provider



August 18, 2016

Riverside Payments is privileged to announce their recent nominations for the Southwest Washington Business & Leadership Awards 2016. Winners will be announced at an event that will take place on September 15th at the Hilton.

The first nomination is for 2016 Business of the year in the large business category where the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce (GVCC) recognizes businesses that invest in their companies and in their communities. The second nomination is Business start-up to watch, acknowledging businesses in their first five years that are both visionary and tenacious.

Riverside quickly grew from humble beginnings into a multi-million dollar a year corporation through the hard work and dedication of founders Brandon Skinner and Jason Reese, along with the best team of executives in the industry.

“We had a vision of simplifying a complex industry by offering the best product, at the best price, with the best service nationwide,” Skinner said. “Our goal of becoming the ‘World’s Best Merchant Service Provider’ is quickly becoming a reality.”

Riverside adds value for merchants across the U.S. by saving them significant sums of money every year, while improving their overall processing experience. They also offer incredible programs for non-profit organizations, receiving at-cost pricing to help as much as possible with their charitable endeavors.

A big part of the culture at Riverside is a commitment to charity, the community, and the Riverside family. What better way to marry these principles than participating in charitable events such as The Polar Plunge, The Ice Bucket Challenge, and Movember. Riverside also matches dollar-for-dollar merchant contributions to The Susan G. Komen Foundation and Dollar 4 Portland. They recently promoted one of their account executives to National PR Sales Director with the goal of becoming even more heavily involved in community events in the coming months/years.

Additionally, Riverside Payments has created amazing opportunities in the business community for career minded individuals. Their exponential growth has allowed Riverside to employ a staff of over 60, along with 100s of independent agents across the United States, who are rapidly advancing within the company.

Since Riverside’s inception, they’ve received many accolades from the community and the industry itself. Vancouver Business Journal recently deemed Riverside Payments “The fastest growing 1-5 year company,” an award they worked hard to achieve and feel privileged to have received.

Riverside earned TOP 5 status from TopCreditCardProcessors.com for Merchant Services and Merchant Processing and are the #1 processor in the country for restaurants, attributing the latter largely to their unique FREE POS program that allows merchants the opportunity to get a state-of the art system with no money down.

Riverside Payments is one of the fastest growing merchant companies in the nation, quickly growing from 400k to 5 million over the past two years, and projecting 10 million in earnings by the end of this year.
