Credit Card Processing

About Us

We believe all businesses should have access to fair and transparent credit card processing

No business should have to worry about the cost of accepting credit cards

So we built Zilment as a tool to empower businesses to find the best credit card processing solutions on the market. Although they are shown in percentages, getting a competitive processing rate can add up to thousands of dollars a year in savings. You work hard for your money, and at the end of the day you shouldn't have to pay to get paid.

Zilment was founded because we grew tired of seeing business owners overpaying for payment processing. Accepting credit cards is a necessity, yet too often payment processors and their sales agents use this fact to their advantage. No longer should small-to-medium sized businesses pay higher rates than the Fortune 500. We negotiated to get industry-low rates with features like no cancellation fees and monthly contracts, and pass it all onto you, so you can put more money in your pocket. 

We're here to help businesses of all sizes - so let's get saving today.
