UPDATE 10/22/18: Century Payments was acquired by WorldPay in September 2013 and the company’s URL currently redirects to a page for WorldPay US. It appears that WorldPay has decided to retire the Century Payments brand and board new merchants under the WorldPay brand. We therefore will no longer update this review. Up-to-date information about this company can be found at our WorldPay review.
Century Payments (centurypayments.com) appears to be a fairly new merchant account provider within the credit card processing industry. Based in Frisco, Texas, and founded in 2009, Century Payments has grown rapidly with a $50 million investment from venture capital firm Austin Ventures. Century is one of two providers (the other one being Mercury Payment Systems) to provide backend processing for SalesVu. Additionally, the company claims to have been listed in Inc. Magazine’s 500 fastest growing U.S. companies list four years in a row, which would mean that it made the list in its first year of operation. The claim was not verified for the purposes of this review.
