Many credit card processors have decided that the adult industry has become too risky to do business with and have left in droves — leaving the adult services industry without a way to service their customers using something other than cash. Not Humboldt Merchant Services. For more than 20 years, we’ve worked hand-in-hand with merchants in the adult industry to provide best-in-class credit card processing.

We believe all merchants should be treated with respect and professionalism, no matter what industry. Size doesn’t matter, big or small. High-risk doesn’t scare us. The merchants we partner with should expect a personal and lasting relationship, because we’re focused on your success from day one!

Before we move forward, let us introduce ourselves. We’re Humboldt Merchant Services — a private processing company that offers a wide array of payment solutions for the merchants we work with. We are not brokers. As a registered MSP/ISO for more than two decades, we underwrite all files and manage risk in-house. We have gained the experience and knowledge to surpass industry standards for our clients. We have one simple goal: help you make the most out of every transaction with payment solutions that fit your needs.

We pride ourselves on hiring a team of experts that understands each business is unique and deserves one-on-one attention to provide you with the solutions that will work for your business. We also follow, and lead the way in the latest payment acceptance solutions, including both card-present and card-not-present options.

Humboldt also offer a number of e-Commerce, mail order and telephone order (MOTO) solutions that help grow your business by offering additional revenue streams that may not be available to some high-risk merchants. Processing is available for both U.S. and Canadian businesses, and we offer daily chargeback reporting and fraud reporting.

In the retail space, Humboldt helps you offer your customers quick, reliable payment options. The free equipment program we offer provides merchants with an EMV and NFC terminals(s) that are certified by First Data.  Each transaction we perform for you is safe and secure, and you’ll be paying some of the lowest rates in the industry!

So how do you sign up for a merchant account? It’s easy, quick, and convenient. You can reach out to one of our experienced, and knowledgeable sales representatives who will walk you through our services and products, and recommend a payment solution based on your business needs. Those reps can be reached at 877-387-5642.

Still have questions? Totally understandable, picking a company to handle your credit card processing is a big step that you shouldn’t take lightly. Feel free to send all questions to, or call 877-387-5642.
