AlignCloud has partnered with Host Merchant Services (HMS), an online credit card processor, to provide their customers with secure, cloud-optimized electronic payment processing solutions. Web hosting and cloud customers serviced by AlignCloud will now have full access to the credit card processing services platform from HMS.
The two companies call it ‘an exciting opportunity for customers to benefit from the combined expertise of these two companies’. Based in Louisville, Kentucky, AlignCloud was recently founded by internet veteran Stacy Griggs. The company tailors services for web hosting and cloud providers and end-users alike, from cloud readiness assessment planning to the training of sales staff and cloud vendor management. For Host Merchant Services, the partnership with AlignCloud is part of their strategy to partner with the web hosting and cloud services industry. Companies like AlignCloud can better serve clients by integrating credit card processing into their offerings.
Through Host Merchant Services, AlignCloud’s web hosting and cloud customers will experience ‘hassle-free’ credit card processing with 24x7x365 hour technical support and responsive website. Clients of AlignCloud can also earn extra revenue by referring their customers to the program.
Based in Newark, Delaware, HMS is offering products like credit card processing, gift and loyalty cards, e-commerce, PCI compliance, mobile payments and other merchant services.
