I am trying to learn more about the competitive landscape in the ISO industry. Does The Green Sheet have any resources I could read that would provide an overview of the industry for a beginner?
Additionally, do you have a listing of ISOs in the United States, or could you suggest a place where I could look for such a list?
To the best of my knowledge, no official list of ISOs in the United States exists. However, the listing "ISOs Looking for Agents" appears in every issue of The Green Sheet in print and online at www.greensheet.com. And our December 2007 issue of GSQ, Vol. 10, No. 4, "2007 Acquirers Report," will familiarize you with many of the largest acquirers in the industry. This can also be accessed online.
Our Web site also contains a wealth of information about the ISO landscape. While our archives do not extend to our 1983 inception, all issues of The Green Sheet and GSQ are archived online back to 1995. You can access the entire archive with our search tool, Fast Finder, which appears right below our logo in the upper left hand corner of our home page.
In addition, the following books and reference materials are helpful resources:
