The credit card processing sector is a multi-billion dollar industry. Millions of people nationwide have contact with merchants every day. Many of these merchants do not accept credit cards, or pay high rates to their banks for accepting credit cards. U.S. Merchant Systems provides you with simple, flexible choices for payment on your earnings. Whether you prefer a percentage of the profits for the life of your referred merchant accounts or a fixed compensation per account, we will work with you to determine the best solution to help you earn the most money possible.

The USMS merchant processing affiliate program requires no special technical experience, expertise or knowledge about how merchant accounts work! Our affiliate program is ideal for web hosting companies, web designers, coaches, consultants, business owners, home workers, marketing companies or anyone with a web site or an online business who wants to make passive/residual income.
