The Strawhecker Group released the newest edition of the Directory of U.S. Merchant Acquirers to a receptive audience. The Omaha-based analytics and consulting firm noted that payments industry stakeholders have indicated the annual report is now an indispensable resource, bringing it to industry-standard status in the acquiring community. The comprehensive guide lists the top 300 merchant acquirers in the United States in a searchable format. Selected companies are ranked by processing volumes and merchant portfolios, the company stated.
Jared Drieling, senior director of business intelligence at TSG, said, “Many entities and industry journals in our space reference this report when discussing their status compared to other competitors,” he stated. “In terms of comprehensiveness and depth, there is not another source for this type of data in our space. We have a lot of clients that eagerly await these results.”
