PolyPay is a provider of merchant processing services founded in 2013 in San Luis Obispo, California. In 2021, PolyPay opened their second office in Columbus, Ohio to support their ongoing multi-state customer base and grow their Midwestern and Eastern located opportunities. We have continued to grow our reach to businesses across a variety of different industries in the United States, supporting them with simple and cost-effective processing solutions to accept payments.
Jamie Barlett founded PolyPay to address this need for businesses to advocate for their own financial health. Business owners have much to oversee and deserve a partner like PolyPay who can ease the burden of processing payments for them.
Businesses require flexibility in the different ways they accept payments, whether through traditional terminals, software integrations, E-Commerce tools and mobile solutions. We have developed a deep knowledge base which allows us to tailor solutions that best fit each business’s operations.
Offering processing services is a critical component for any type of business and it is imperative that business owners choose a partner that will ensure the process is smooth and consistent. PolyPay was founded on the principles of transparency, honesty and education to differentiate ourselves from our peers and remain trustworthy to our customers.
If you are a new or existing business; if you are unhappy with your current processing provider; if you have questions or want to educate yourself further about what would work best for you – please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to helping you and learning more about your business so we can add to your success.
We will provide you with a perfect payment solution tailored for your business.
