Government Merchant Services

Most City, County, local and State government offices today have a need for rapid and efficient collections – thus the need to accept Credit & Debits cards. However, most government offices do not have a budget to pay Credit Card processing fees. That's where GovTeller™ comes in! GovTeller™ is a solution that makes it simple to accept Credit & Debit Cards for Tax payments, Fines, Registrations, Licenses, Utility bills, Traffic citations, and much more.

GovTeller™, a Division of US Merchant Systems, LLC, is a payments platform that allows government agencies to accept multiple forms of bankcard payments ( i.e., MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, and PIN Debit) with no processing costs to government agencies.

At USMS- GovTeller™, we offer a full range of solutions that provide a zero processing cost platform to the government office. At the time of payment, the consumer agrees to a nominal convenience fee that is automatically calculated and added to the transaction. The consumer has the option to cancel before being charged. GovTeller's™ consumer convenience fees are extremely competitive and reasonable.

The GovTeller™ solutions enable government offices to process transactions via the web, face to face utilizing PC or the latest POS terminal technology. For larger offices that have special "integration needs", the GovTeller™ technical team provides all the APIs and assistance needed to integrate.
