During their 25+ years in the payment processing industry, partners Ian and Michael became frustrated with pervasive inefficiencies and disreputable practices.
Having witnessed firsthand the need for greater services and support in LGBTQ+ communities, they sought a way to give back.
PridePays is a social enterprise that operates to transform lives with every transaction. There are no shareholders or investors motivated by earnings. There are no commission sales agents with disreputable tactics.
What’s left is expert staff motivated to provide the best service at the lowest cost so there is more to give back. Participating merchants decide where the money goes. Every month LGBTQ+ causes across the country receive funding for the important work they are doing. It’s a growing stream of recurring revenue to each cause helping to ensure their impact continues to increase; and it doesn’t cost the businesses a thing.
