A Strong Foundation

Our Experience is Your Advantage

 

Founding

The founding of Select Bankcard began in early 2010 in Eureka, CA, when the founders of the company got together to discuss the merits of starting an Independent Sales Organization (ISO) to offer merchant services in the local community and throughout the United States. A need was identified in the industry for an ISO with a reputation of trust, direct control over key aspects of the business, and the technology needed to scale without sacrificing service to its customers. A few months later, Select Bankcard was founded with offices in Lehi, UT and Eureka, CA.

Shortly after its formation, Select Bankcard formed a close relationship with Mission Valley Bank, a community bank based in California, to sponsor its acquiring activities. As Mission Valley Bank's exclusive ISO, Select Bankcard is able to provide an offering to its partners that is unique to the industry, with flexible and attentive service to its merchants' needs.
