Wilmington, DE (Vocus/PRWEB) February 03, 2011
Electronic Payment Exchange (EPX), a global, full-service provider of credit card, debit card, and electronic check processing services, announced today that they have entered into a long-term, exclusive payment processing relationship with Private Quarters, Inc.
Private Quarters, the nation’s premier, direct selling company focused on high-quality linens and comfortwear for the bed and bath, selected EPX as their processor of web-based and point-of-sale Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover transactions. Private Quarters selected EPX because of EPX’s fully integrated, tokenization-based payment processing solutions that facilitate PCI compliance, reduce risk, and enhance efficiency and because of EPX’s ability to integrate with direct selling software from PartyPlan Solutions. Private Quarters, a corporate member of the Direct Selling Association, is a fast growing, national business with hundreds of independent consultants selling millions of dollars of home textiles annually.
"Securing the payment data of our loyal customers is extremely important to Private Quarters," says Private Quarters Co-founder, President and CEO Jeff Stroud. “The PCI-compliant credit card processing services provided by EPX protect Private Quarters’ customers and streamline our operational workflows associated with accepting credit card payments.”
EPX Marketing Director Steven Kendus believes the EPX/Private Quarters relationship demonstrates the direct selling industry’s increased need for secure, cost-effective payment processing. “Direct selling and direct buying are integral components of American culture,” Kendus says. “There are more than 16 million direct sellers in the U.S. who are generating increasing numbers of credit card transactions, and these merchants and their customers deserve strong protection from payment data theft, identity theft, and exorbitant processing fees.”
