To celebrate our 20th anniversary we are updating our brand image for the next 20 years. Our founding principles will continue to guide everything we do to deliver useful, usable and valuable solutions.
Vantage Card Services, Inc., a Georgia corporation, was established for business in February of 1996 to market and manage payment card processing services and payment systems for merchants, businesses and banks. Today we service clients in all 50 states maintaining excellent records at the Better Business Bureau and with Dun & Bradstreet.

Catering to the sophisticated merchant, our clients' average processing volume is three times larger than the industry average. We currently support thousands of merchants processing millions of transactions on multiple network platforms including Global and TSYS. We attribute our success to our business philosophy, our team experience, and our personal commitment.
We call it "building a business." Our entire program is built around this basic principle. We start with a fee structure based entirely on processing revenue. Vantage Card Services charges no up-front fees, has no hidden monthly fees, and does not sell expensive equipment leases. Our processing contract can be terminated at any time without penalty or fee. No one gets paid for signing a contract. The Vantage compensation program is tied to the monthly processing volume of our satisfied customers.
This program dictates the type of people who make up the Vantage team. It does not support fly by night, get rich quick attitudes. The Vantage leadership and philosophy attracts only top quality, customer oriented professionals who are committed to our long-term business goals of building a financially strong and loyal merchant base.
We build our business one merchant at a time, from multi-million, multi-location, to the small one owner business. Through client education about the payment industry, we operate under the premise that the more knowledgeable a customer is, the more likely we will be selected as their provider. This philosophy also results in a more sophisticated and loyal customer.
A great deal of our business comes from referrals and added locations of existing merchants. Your decision to move your bankcard processing account to Vantage is a no risk proposition backed by competitive pricing and professional service.
The Vantage management team has more than 85 years of experience in the payment systems industry. We have serviced every kind of merchant: retail, restaurant, hotel, professional, and mail order. This is a complex and ever changing industry. Each year, new regulations and new fees are announced that affect our business and merchants that accept credit cards. The Vantage team consist of seasoned professionals who understand the value in helping merchants stay in compliance, working with them to qualify for the best pricing.
We have spent countless hours on site with merchants analyzing processing statements for savings, training employees, reprogramming and installing all types of credit card systems, trouble shooting technical problems, fighting fraud and chargeback issues, and helping with bookkeeping and accounting issues. Sales and service of your account is performed by the same representative to ensure quality and provide a stable point of contact.
Personal commitment is easy when you believe in what you are doing. The Vantage program can lower your processing cost and directly improve your financial bottom line by hundreds, even thousands, of dollars - each and every year.
Vantage is committed to earning your business through straight talk from industry experts, and fair and competitive pricing. We are committed to retaining your business by doing what we say, keeping your cost low while setting a higher standard of personal service.
We invite you to invest in our way of doing business. When you select a vendor, you are investing in their way of doing business, so why reward those with business models that only serve to acquire your business, not service it. Vantage offers an alternative - a personal commitment to provide value through service.
Thank you for your time and consideration of our services. We look forward to having you as one of our valued customers.
