In May 2019, Global Payments, another very large direct processor from Georgia, announced that it was acquiring TSYS for $21.5 billion. The combined organization will operate under the Global Payments brand name, and the TSYS name will eventually disappear. However, mergers of this size take a long time to complete, and as of May 2020, TSYS still has its own website, which lists the company as ‘TSYS – A Global Payments Company.’ We haven’t received any indication of how Global Payments plans to transition existing TSYS customers into its system, but we expect that you will probably be switched over to a Global Payments contract at some point. If you’re a merchant looking for a new provider, now is not the time to sign up with TSYS.

For such a large, traditional processor, Elavon offers a few advantages. The company deserves credit for eliminating its early termination fees and disclosing its flat-rate pricing plans. At the same time, it loses a few points for not disclosing the availability of interchange-plus pricing and for inconsistent customer service and support.

Overall, we’re quite pleased with Chase Merchant Services. The company has a solid reputation and ethical business practices. While I doubt it can give you the level of personal attention you’d get from a smaller processor, the competitive rates, fair contract terms, and state-of-the-art technology might be enough to make up for it, depending on the needs of your business. Chase Merchant Services earns a 4 out of 5 stars rating for its excellent terms, solid business practices, and up-to-date processing hardware.
