PaymentMax Processing Review

PaymentMax Processing Review


PaymentMax Processing is an ISO/MSP, established in 2004. This is a newer company in the industry but has been around long enough to have a decent reputation. PaymentMax Processing is based out of Thousand Oaks, California.

PaymentMax Processing has truly acknowledged the importance of social media in the digital era of business and this is one of the things that have added them in my good books. These social media pages provide an effective platform for communication. Over and above their active Facebook page and Twitter account, they also have a blog where you can easily connect with them. Not only this, they also have a Youtube channel of their own with 60different how to videos for educating merchants about how the merchant account or it’s features can be used. PaymentMax Processing is one of the very few companies in the industry that are spending both time and resources for educating merchants.

Another really good thing about them is their acceptance of the fact that customers have the right to provide both good and bad online reviews.  Great work!

Their testimonial section is not much good, so they need to work on that.

There weren’t any negative reviews that I could find.

I rate PaymentMax Processing 4.5 out of 5 as I expected more out of their testimonial section.
