Honesty, integrity & experience

Southwest Merchant Services was founded on the principle of helping small businesses grow and thrive by offering the highest quality San Diego credit card processing available. We understand that small businesses that hope to establish an online presence or attract more customers to their storefronts will need to offer credit card processing as part of their merchant services, but this can often be a difficult and expensive setup. At Southwest Merchant Services we take the guesswork out of setting up these systems so it is that much easier for our clients.


“We received the best services we could hope for!”

100% customer satisfaction and retention

Our Mission

Southwest Merchant Services hopes to be the San Diego credit card processor with 100% customer satisfaction and retention. We know that businesses need our assistance, but might be tired of shopping, however we provide services that are affordable, comprehensive, and reliable for all of our clients and never stop working for them.

Company History & Success

We’re here to help

Southwest Merchant Services was founded because we realized that there was an inadequate supply of merchant services with a conscience; merchant services that connected the nonprofit and for-profit worlds while providing outstanding customer service; merchant services that wouldn’t lock clients into unwieldy leases or interminable contracts. We hope to fill this gap to better address the needs of our future clients.

The consumer market is ever growing and changing. With the increase of electronic payment methods available in the market today, Southwest Merchant Services realizes that the days of writing checks or sending money orders are numbered.

While these methods still hang on, businesses that truly want to thrive need to be able to work with electronic payment processors. Whether businesses are just getting started with these payment plans or you are looking to renew and revitalize your credit card processing in San Diego, we will pair you with the tools you need.
