About Priority Payments Local: A Top Payment Processing Company
Priority Payments Local is a team of real people, knowledgable people, and responsive people who help merchants across the United States streamline the way they accept and deliver payments.
Sometimes that may mean helping them upgrade their poor-performing fintech.
Other times it means putting them on a new pricing structure to save them thousands of dollars each month on their payment processing fees.
And sometimes, it means something completely different, but we take the time to get to know our merchants, provide them with the best possible payment processing solutions and service, and earn their trust.
Because of this, we have been able to expand outside of NJ to help merchants from the east coast to the west coast.
Get to know the faces behind this top payment processing company - Priority Payment Systems Local or Priority Payments for short.
How Priority Payments Local Came to Be: Payment Processing in NJSeeing the value in the merchant services industry, longtime friends and business partners Sal DiDonato and Angelo Mendola formed Priority Payments Systems Local, a payment technology and payment processing company. The two started out in a small one room office on Broad St. in Red Bank, New Jersey quickly expanding to a multi-story building on Monmouth St. The year was 2013, a time when Red Bank was gaining popularity.
Due to the demand for a reliable payment processor so that merchants could securely and quickly accept credit cards, debit cards, ACH, cash, and check payments, in 2017 Priority opened a second office in Miami, Florida with childhood friend Jack Zahra. Over the years, the trio has worked with various partners such as Green Payments in Asbury Park, NJ to build independent offices that provide credit card payment processing and fintech to merchants across the USA.
