Guardian wasn't founded by bankers, huge corporations, or Silicon Valley hotshots. We were founded by small business owners who (after going through 10 processors in a 20-year period) were fed up with "business-as-usual."
Hidden fees, misleading sales tactics, and undisclosed contracts run rampant in the payment systems industry. The reason we exist is to restore trust in a broken industry, prove there is a processor who will honor their word, and put your best interests first.
A handshake still means something to us.
We sell all of our equipment at cost. Wanna learn why leases suck?
Everything is clear and easy to understand.
A human is always ready to take your call.
You get to speak to someone in Amercia.
Cost + pricing keeps it clear and simple.
"I have thoroughly appreciated the responsiveness and intelligence of Guardian! I've never had a credit card processor that was local, and it has made a huge difference. Whenever I have any type of issue, they either answer it over the phone or visit me the same day. You can't get that kind of service elsewhere!"

We've had a great relationship with Guardian at all of the retail stores we own. I will be honest, as many rates as there are on credit card processing, it's hard to make heads or tails of the bill. I have always found Guardian to be honest, straightforward, and super helpful on any questions I had. Guardian has built a solid, reputable business.
