The Green Sheet gets resourceful

In its mission to educate the payments industry and provide actionable intelligence for ISOs and merchant level salespeople, The Green Sheet has added new resources to its award-winning magazine and website. Among the new features are a buyers guide and an up-to-date outline of current state and federal legislation that targets the industry.

GSQ Buyers Guide

The GSQ Buyers Guide is a one-stop resource for payment professionals. "People have been asking us for a buyers guide for ages," said Kate Rodriguez, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager of The Green Sheet. "In answer to this demand we developed the Buyers Guide as a 'go to' resource."

Rodriquez noted the guide offers new opportunities for advertisers as well. "We feel this gives readers one place to look for services they might require," she said. "It also gives some of the small companies a chance to advertise at a very reasonable rate. So now we can give smaller companies a chance to get their names out there to our readers."

The inaugural GSQ Buyers Guide was published in May 2011, prior to the Electronic Transactions Association's Annual Meeting & Expo. The guide will continue to be published annually in time for the ETA event. Copies are available free to subscribers of The Green Sheet. The guide can also be accessed online at (click on Publications, then GSQ - Current Issue).

Legislative Roundup

Also new on The Green Sheet website is Legislative Roundup, a compilation of pending legislation that keeps readers up to date on state and federal initiatives designed to regulate the industry. The information is presented so that readers can easily discover who introduced a particular piece of legislation, what it says and its current status.

"There is so much legislation out there it is difficult to follow all of it," Rodriquez said. "This is a way for readers to go to one place to see what is going on with the government with up-to-date information."

The Legislative Roundup listing can be accessed at (click on Resources, then Legislative Roundup).
