Acquiring

Merchant Acquiring

Merchant acquiring is a critical element of credit card payment transactions processing. Acquirers enable merchants to accept card payments by acting as a link between merchants, issuers, and payment networks. They provide authorization, settlement, dispute management, and information services to merchants. To keep up with the high demand, merchant acquiring companies need to have savvy, forward-thinking executives leading their teams, and experienced and skilled acquirers out in the field. At IMPACT Payments Recruiting, we provide our clients with both.

With the increasing demand for transactions to be real-time, flexible, and scalable, acquirers often encounter “build vs. buy” decisions, technology assessments, and platform evaluations—often while being limited by their existing systems. Because of the very specific skills and industry knowledge needed to make these vital business decisions, finding candidates with this expertise can be a real challenge. Instead of taking on the task of sourcing, recruiting, and hiring executive talent yourself, trust the experts at IMPACT Payments Recruiting to do it for you.

  • We needed to hire some cornerstone employees for real-time payments to start our US operations. The IMPACT team quickly found and presented a number of qualified candidates and led me to two rock solid hires that were just what I required and good cultural fits. We could not have achieved quicker and better results without the IMPACT team’s industry knowledge, contacts, and recruiting expertise.
