Credit Card Processing
Credit Card Processing is the staple of our business. As a broker, we present businesses with the best processor that will suit their needs including lower rates, and the most compatible hardware or POS systems available.
Credit card processing is the only product of the banking industry where the profits for the bank are not capped. This means, rates from processors are open to unlimited charges. Third Coast Merchant Services goal is to bring rates to the lowest possible margin above interchange, based upon industry and volume. To offer this type of rate we needed agreements with the finest processors in the industry. Which we believe we have.

What they are saying about Third Coast.
“We wanted to offer a cash discount program where our customers would offset some of our credit card fees. Jeff and Hank came in and set up the program and then took it one step further. They ran Cat 6 ethernet cable throughout both of our bars so our credit card terminals would run faster. None of our previous providers would have done that. These guys go above and beyond. They get it done!”
Scott | Bootleggers Bar, Dillinger’s Pub
“We were Third Coast’s first customer. I knew Hank for a while so I took a chance on him and his new business. It payed off. Third Coast has kept our rates steady for three years now and they have been there whenever we needed them. We now have 4 hotels, a retail store, and an automotive dealership that are using their services. They continue to earn our business and we wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Rob | Superior Hospitality
“When I bought my restaurant, I had no Idea how to setup my POS system correctly. Third Coast came and configured it for me for free. Now whenever I need anything credit card related these guys are always available. I will not use any other company. They’re Awesome!”
Dennis | Lockview Restaurant
“It took a year for us to work through our previous processor’s contracts, but once resolved, Third Coast came in and setup three of our hotels. Whenever we are need of service or have questions, they answer the call directly and they take care of the problem immediately. Their processing rates are great too!”
Kelly | Sweet Onion, Inc.
“Our credit card terminals would keep showing a communication error and wouldn’t process. I thought the terminals were at fault. Third Coast came in and found that our internet connection kept dropping because of where our modem and router were located. They told me they would fix the problem. The next day they came in and ran all new high speed internet cable throughout the restaurant. They installed a brand new Ethernet switch, hooked each credit card terminal to the switch and then the switch back to the router. They could have easily told me to call my internet service provider to fix the problem, but they handled it themselves. Now that’s service!”
