Our FinTech company Priority Payment Systems Local is proud to serve one of the most famous cities: New York City, home to Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. Read on to learn why hundreds of NYC based businesses have looked to us as the best payment processing company, but first, if you’re not sure exactly what a FinTech company is, allow us to elaborate.

What is a FinTech Company?

FinTech stands for financial technology – something every merchant needs to accept credit cards for their small, medium, large, or enterprise-sized business. Finance publication PwC best defines what a FinTech company is:

The term FinTech is often tossed around in the media and in casual conversation. And while many use the term, its specific meaning often gets lost somewhere along the way. Startups use technology to offer existing financial services at lower costs and to offer new tech-driven solutions. Incumbent financial firms look to acquire or work with startups to drive innovation. Technology companies provide payment tools. These can all be seen as FinTech.

When people think of FinTech, they often focus on startups, breaking into areas that banks and other legacy financial institutions have dominated. But we think about all the players in a larger FinTech ecosystem, which we refer to as the As, Bs, Cs, and Ds.

As are large, well-established financial institutions. We sometimes refer to these as “incumbents.”

Bs are big tech companies that are active in the financial services space but not exclusively so, such as Apple, Google, Facebook, and Twitter.

Cs are companies that provide infrastructure or technology that facilitates financial services transactions. This broad group includes companies like MasterCard, Fiserv, First Data, various financial market utilities, and exchanges such as NASDAQ [and Priority Payment Systems Local].

Ds are disruptors: fast-moving companies, often startups, focused on a particular innovative technology or process.
