A pleasing profile

I want to personally thank you for having our company recently profiled. I consider The Green Sheet to be one of the most influential publications in the payments industry today. We are a small player in a big space and being profiled helps us reach the banking and merchant community with a positive message about how our technology is driving safe, secure transactions through global online banks to the benefit of everyone.

Thank you for taking the time to appreciate our work. It is im-portant to us that companies of all sizes and within all niches of our industry be able to have a voice and contribute to our common good.


How do I get a fair contract?

I'm drawn to this industry, and I know, if I'm going to make a go of it, I'll have to sign a contract with an ISO, but I'm not sure what to look for in order to best protect my interests.

Can you help?

"Pitfalls to avoid in acquiring relationships," by Adam Atlas, which appears in this very issue of The Green Sheet is an excellent place to begin gathering knowledge about how to successfully negotiate a contract.

Also, to find additional pertinent information, look for phrases such as "MLS agreement" and "MLS contract" using Fast Finder, our search engine in the upper left-hand corner of our home page (

Another ideal resource is GS Online's MLS Forum. You can pose a question there and get answers from merchant level salespeople (MLS) who have been through the contract negotiation process.

To join the Forum, click on Register Today! in the upper right-hand corner of our home page, and follow the prompts from there.

Best of luck to you.
