Today, we are pleased to introduce you to Zach Carson, president of operations at Praetorian Payments in Plano, TX.
Industry: Merchant Services
What do you do, and who do you serve?
We are a merchant service provider, offering low cost payment processing for all small businesses nationwide.
Could you tell us the story behind your business? What inspired you to start this venture, and what makes it unique?
I started Praetorian Payments with a dear friend as a result of working for other payment processors, seeing how they took advantage of small businesses and over charged them. We decided we wanted to offer them a honest, low-cost alternative with great service.
How does your business contribute to the local community? Are there any social or environmental initiatives you support or participate in?
We contribute to various organizations, including the VFW, American Legion and many others.
Can you share a memorable success story or a positive customer experience that highlights the impact of your business?
We had a merchant who owns a large BBQ restaurant that was paying $5000+/month in credit card processing fees. He was so upset as the fees were hurting his bottom line, ruining his profit margin. We switched him to our processing and now he is paying 70% less and with the money he saved, he was able to purchase his daughter a new car when hers broke. That truly was a great story to see unfold and the happiness in his daughter’s eyes when she received that gift.
