Green Payments, a merchant services provider located in Asbury Park, NJ would like to

announce our Small Business Relief Program for trade and professional associations.

There are more than 8,000 trade and professional associations in the United States. These

association members own and work in local businesses building relationships, developing new ideas and creating jobs. We understand how valuable associations that serve these entrepreneurs can be to their growth and success. Additionally, these associations often rely partly or wholly on membership dues and professional fees paid by their members. Collecting those payments involves time-consuming processes like recurring billing, collections and accounting.

With that in mind Green Payments has developed a partnership program that not only helps these associations collect their fees in a timely, efficient and cost-effective manner but also allows the association to participate in our Small Business Relief Program.

We are committed to helping small businesses by lowering their credit card processing fees, improving their operations and the means by which they accept payments from their customers, offering working capital and assistance in applying for Covid Relief Programs as well as connecting them with other merchants and customers to help grow their businesses.

Cliff Green, President and Chief Executive Officer of Green Payments said “This program was designed to help reach as many small business owners as possible. By partnering with industry specific associations, we are able to help their members lower their operating costs, implement safer payment acceptance methods to protect their customers and staff and give back to the association itself to help their groups grow.”

Green Payments strongly believes we do not just need to help our local businesses, but we need to support the groups and organizations that bring these business owners together and provide valuable resources for their growth. Our partnership program will allocate 20% of the income we generate from trade association members to be given back to the association as a thank you for participating in the program and a means to help these associations continue to support small businesses.

The American Culinary Federation (ACF) is a great example of a local organization helping to provide value added services to their members through this program. Their President, Nick Mircaglion said “Over the years Green Payments has been a great sponsor and contributor to our largest industry event Winter Fest and we are excited to help our members and the association.”
