A Subsidiary of North American Bancard
Formerly known as “Argus Payments,” Inovio (inoviopay.com) is an online payment gateway provider owned by North American Bancard. The company operated independently as Argus Payments until 2014, when North American Bancard acquired it. It was rebranded as Inovio in 2016. It is unclear at this time whether Argus Payments (and, by extension, Inovio) has any connection to Argus Merchant Services. Despite their similar names, they do not share branding, and Argus Merchant Services currently operates without any apparent link to North American Bancard. Most evidence suggests that Argus Merchant Services and Argus Payments are separate entities, but a lack of details about Argus Payments’s ownership and history make this difficult to confirm.
Location and Ownership
Like Argus Payments before it, Inovio emphasizes that it is a payment gateway provider rather than a conventional credit card processor. However, Inovio does offer integrated merchant accounts through North American Bancard, making its payment processing option indistinguishable from a North American Bancard merchant account. Inovio lists its headquarters as 21650 Oxnard Street, Suite 1200, Woodland Hills, CA 91367, and Conal Cunningham is the general manager and founder of Inovio. Inovio should not be confused with Inovio Pharmaceuticals, a large pharmaceutical company.
