UPDATE 2/27/19: The Vendmerce website is currently unavailable and appears to have been inactive since early 2016. We are unable to find any new DBAs for the company, and all signs indicate that it is no longer an operational business. We will therefore no longer update this review. If you have any information about Vendmerce’s current status, please share it in the comment section below this review.
Based in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Vendmerce (vendmerce.com) is a merchant account provider that serves standard-risk and high-risk merchant types in the United States. The company does not list a backend processor or acquiring bank on its website, but it probably resells the services of a larger credit card processor. Vendmerce also does not not disclose the names of its executive leaders or owners, but it does share an physical address with a web hosting company called “Vaultem” (vaultem.com). Alex Woodstock is the CEO and co-founder of Vaultem, and this Manta profile seems to suggest that both companies are owned by the same entity. Alex Woodstock is also the CEO of a company called “ShopPay” (myshoppay.com), which describes itself as “a Vendmerce platform.” A commenter named Robert Scifo has stated that his family owns both Vendmerce and Vaultem, but we are unable to independently verify this claim. Vendmerce was founded in 2014 and lists headquarters at 1275 Glenlivet Drive, Allentown, Pennsylvania 18106.
