An ISO with an offer

We love The Green Sheet, and now that we are looking to hire a merchant services customer support specialist, we'd love to see if there is a way to share that opportunity with The Green Sheet community. Could you please let me know who I could talk to about that?

A note of gratitude

We received the following note from Mike Morris in response to "Getting off to the right start," in the Forum section of The Green Sheet, June 13, 2011, issue 11:06:11. The entry contained advice from Jason Felts on how to embark upon a career in the payments industry:

Thank you so much for the information. I didn't think someone of Jason Felts' stature would respond to me personally, but I will heed his advice and absorb from every source all I can to shore up my resolve to do this position well.

I look forward to reading the future Green Sheet magazines. This past week I read Paul H. Green's books, Good Selling!SM and Good Selling!SM 2. They really explained the salesperson process extremely well. I look forward to reading them again to glean even more. The cartoons and especially the quotes from so many sources are truly encouraging. I would think that these books would be a "must read" for anyone entering or needing encouragement to continue in this endeavor.

I continually recall Green's mention of SWSWSWN (Some Will, Some Won't, So What, Next"), as it deflects rejection as a personal item and makes me dust off my shoes and move on.


It looks like you are indeed getting off to a fine start in the payments industry. I hope you check in with us from time to time to let us know how your career is unfolding. Best of luck to you.



Wowed by Paycloud

In "ETA annual docks in San Diego," The Green Sheet, June 13, 2011, issue 11:06:01, we listed several Electronic Transactions Association award winners honored at the association's 2011 Annual Meeting & Expo in May.

We regret the article did not mention that SparkBase won the ETA's 2011 Technology Innovation Award for Paycloud, a smart phone-enabled mobile wallet for loyalty and gift card programs. In a press release about the award, SparkBase noted that Paycloud securely integrates with merchants' existing credit card terminals.

SparkBase Chief Executive Officer Doug Hardman added, "We are thrilled to receive this highly coveted award. For years, consumers have been forced to carry around rubber bands full of gift and loyalty cards to save money at their favorite stores. Paycloud provides an alternative that is perfect for those people who rely on their smart phones for nearly everything."

We mentioned Paycloud's win in issue 11:06:01's SellingPrepaid section but should also have included it in the article about the ETA. Congratulations to you, SparkBase, for this achievement.
