FTS Acquires Dependable Payment Processing and Discount Payment Processing

PITTSBURGH--()--Financial Transaction Services (FTS), one of the nation’s fastest-growing providers of payment acceptance services, today announced that it has acquired Dependable Payment Processing and Discount Payment Processing (collectively known as DPP), two affiliated companies based in Pittsburgh that provide electronic payment processing solutions.

With powerful online portfolio management tools and a leading-edge agent center, FTS and DPP will collaborate to provide outstanding service to their shared customers.

“We are very excited that DPP will be joining the FTS family. FTS’s in-depth industry knowledge and state-of-the-art technology will become a major asset to our agents and merchants across the country,” said Thomas Shanley, who will remain CEO of DPP. “Business with DPP will continue as usual with the same procedures and staff.”

Jeff Shanahan, President of FTS, agreed that the new partnership will provide benefits on both sides. "As one of the fastest-growing Independent Sales Organizations in the region, DPP will provide FTS with another strategic distribution sales channel and strengthen our presence in our home state of Pennsylvania,” Shanahan said. “We are looking forward to working with DPP and helping them to continue to provide best-in-class merchant services."

DPP will combine its sales and operational expertise with FTS and will operate from its headquarters in Mars, PA, near Pittsburgh. With thousands of clients processing billions of dollars annually, and an extensive network of sales-based referral channels, the partnership with DPP will provide FTS with a significant increase in annual volume and will deepen the company’s executive bench.
