Brewery & winery credit card processing


July 23, 2019

Running a brewery or winery means an endless stream of details demanding your attention. With so much to juggle, your payments need to pour smoothly every time. Like crafting the perfect mix of ingredients, credit card processing should be crafted around the tastes of your business. From high-volume restaurant point of sale systems to handling large volume transactions on the wholesale side, breweries and wineries have unique payment needs. You’ll need merchant services that adjust to the unique tastes of your business

Merchant service solutions for breweries and wineries

When you make beer, wine, and other spirits, you’re looking to creating something special. You’ll start with the fundamentals, selecting the finest ingredients and following best production practices. Then you add your own special touches that create perfect customer experiences, each unique and satisfying.

Just like creating the perfect recipe, each winery and brewery has unique needs. We understand these needs. We work with thousands of independent breweries and wineries just like yours to craft payments that work for your business.

Satisfying demanding customers: the front end

Operating a busy taproom means you’ll want to be equipped with the latest in payment processing services. You’ll want to accept credit and debit cards, of course, but that’s only the beginning. Meeting the needs of today’s savvy consumers means accepting eWallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay. Gift cards and loyalty programs can also help build your business as much as the perfect pour or outstanding service.

We understand the unique front-end needs of breweries and wineries. From simple and secure credit card terminals to the latest integrated point of sale systems and mobile payments, we’ve got you covered.

Satisfying demanding customers: the back end

Breweries and wineries are often lured by merchant service providers that are built to serve the front end or the back end, but rarely both. Yet wholesale is often a key ingredient in the channel sales mix. Serving the needs of wholesale customers is fundamentally different than those of retail customers. You’ll want merchant services that are optimized for your wholesale business-to-business needs.

We work with breweries and wineries to make wholesale B2B payments easy. We offer ACH and eCheck options for real-time authorizations with fewer hassles, and a virtual terminal for phone orders. We’ll work with you to serve your wholesale customers while reducing the risk and hassle of returned checks. We’ll help lower your B2B payment processing costs, so you can focus on crafting the perfect brew.

Safety first: protecting your business

There are many reasons why people are drawn to the hospitality business; learning how to become a security expert isn’t one of them. You don’t need to become a security expert to operate a contemporary brewery or winery. Yet the dangers posed by payment fraud and data breaches demand that your business partners with a merchant services provider that provides state of the art payment security.

We help protect breweries and wineries with the latest in payment security. From EMV technologies proven to reduce counterfeit transactions in-store, to sophisticated fraud detection and prevention online, our secure payment systems offer peace of mind for the busy restaurateur. We’ll help your business navigate guidelines that will keep your business safe and compliant with industry regulations, including PCI compliance.
