Powering everyday giving

Over the past few years Merchant Warrior has grown, exceeding all our expectations.

We were able to do it this, because of you!

If you use one of our super-cool payment solutions already, you have most certainly experienced the quality of customer focus and commitment to outstanding service.

We care about you, our customers. We know you LOVE us, because our growth, till date, has mostly been with your support (through our referral program etc.).

Now. It is our turn to give back.

We plan to expand into, and continue our support of the Not for Profit (NFP) sector, in the great work that they do every day. We are committed to supporting our client NFPs in their endeavours.

How do we plan to do this? 

We already have some amazing solutions and plans in place for the Not for profit sector including:

  • 50 % off your Annual fees
  • Very low transaction fees (Yes. As a NFP, if you are paying anything more than $20c/transaction, you are paying way too much)
  • Support in integrating with your existing online donation page, platform or solution.
  • Testing facilities for the solution
  • Expert advice

Need more reasons to give us a call?

We are very proud of our referral program. It helps our customers profit by helping others.  Read more about it here.

We are serious about helping you.  We mean it.

To get things in motion, we have hired a new Marketing & Communications Manager. Please welcome, the newest addition to our team, Treassa Joseph (Tina). Tina brings with her a wealth of experience of working not only in the IT and Telecom sectors, but has also worked in various Business Development, Marketing and Communications roles in the Events, PR and NFP sector.

Together with our existing partners we offer a variety of online payment solutions for the sector. In her role, Tina will also be working on building partnerships with other platforms that support the NFPs.

Give Tina a call today to discuss the needs of your NFP organization.

Seasons Greetings

Christmas and the New Year are upon us once again and there is no better way to celebrate than to relax, take some time off and enjoy the holidays with your family.

Here at Merchant Warrior, we regard our merchants as our extended family and as 2013 draws to a close, we would like to thank you (our merchants) for your support.

In 2013, we made a few (major and minor) strides to ensure we continue to provide you with the best payment solution you can ask for.

Our platform continues to be rated by our acquiring partners as one of the best payment processing platforms available in the market today.

Early 2014 will be an exciting time for our merchants as we continue to expand our operations and improve out processing platform.

Come Easter time and we will have some “Easter Egg” surprises that will also be available to our merchants as we look at beneficial partnerships with our acquiring partners.

Every year we thank our merchants for their input into our platform. Without their feedback we would not have been able to improve and grow our platform to what it is today.

It has been our pleasure serving merchants around the globe in 2013.

As always, it is our constant endeavour to provide our merchants and their customers with the payment platform of the future, Today.

We hope that you have a safe, enjoyable and prosperous holiday season with your family and friends and look forward to working with you in 2014.
