UPDATE 2/18/2019: The Merchant Data Systems website (merchantdatasystems.com) is no longer an active website. At one point it redirected to a website for “Company.com,” a business services provider whose services include payment processing. It is unclear whether Company.com acquired Merchant Data Systems or whether it is simply a rebranding of Merchant Data Systems, but the two entities appear to share the same management team. It appears that Merchant Data Systems is no longer an active credit card processing brand. We will therefore no longer update this review, and we plan to publish a review of Company.com soon.
Merchant Data Systems (merchantdatasystems.com) provides merchant accounts for retail, restaurant and e-commerce businesses. The company also offers its own payment gateway as well as the First Data Global Gateway. Founded in 1997, Merchant Data Systems is headquartered at 1688 Meridian Ave Suite 802, Miami Beach, Florida 33139 and is sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., Walnut Creek, California, and Deutsche Bank AG as its Acquiring Banks. The company’s president is Drew Freeman.
