The Latest Rebranding of Certified Payment Processing
Cypress Bay Solutions is a merchant account provider that appears to be a reseller of First American Payment Systems and a member of the Certified Payment Processing family of companies. These companies include Certified Payment Processing, Altiras Advisors, Axis Payments, Intrepid Payment Processing, Summit Merchant Solutions, Apex Merchant Group, and TransTech Merchant Group, all of which are either poorly rated on CPO or no longer operational.
Cypress Bay Solutions History
Founded in 1991 and based in the Carrollton, Texas area, Certified Payment Processing was an all-purpose credit card processor that also operated under the names Summit Merchant Solutions and TransTech Merchant Group. All three companies shared the same CEO, Tony Norrie, who is currently the CEO of Altiras Advisors. A former employee of Apex Merchant Group has stated in the comment section of our Apex Merchant Group review that Apex Merchant Group’s portfolio was merged with Certified Payment Processing following the March 2015 settlement of legal action against Apex in the state of Minnesota, and that Axis Payments and Intrepid Payment Processing were later launched as DBAs of Certified Payment Processing. All of these brands are now inactive except for Altiras Advisors, and Cypress Bay Solutions is their most recently created DBA. As of 2022, the Cypress Bay Solutions website features a “by Deluxe” in addition to its usual logo. Though there is no other information we can find about this, it appears that Cypress Bay Solutions is now a part of the Deluxe business and payment services brand.
