“If you want to know the differences between being an ISV versus an ISO versus a Payment Facilitator, let’s talk.  If you need to know the obligations of a Payment Facilitator to its sub-merchants, I can explain.  There are models that fit every technology company wanting to better leverage the economics of payments.”

Compliance is hard enough when you’re dealing with governmental and industry regulations that you have worked with for years.  Can you comfortably answer your Acquirer’s Regulatory Compliance/Anti-Money Laundering (AML) questionnaire?  A compliance program is more than approval of a concept.  It is the everyday management of policies, procedures, and internal controls.  

The RPY Innovations has the expertise to assist you – from writing your policies to implementing them to streamlining your practices. Let us make sure you are auditable and managing your risk to the lowest level possible.


If your project requires a merchant pricing analysis, or you need an interchange analysis, we can develop a spreadsheet that delivers the information you need to make decisions.  Perhaps you require a partner analysis for vendor selection. We can untangle the variances in proposals so that you have a true picture of which solution provides the best financial return. A product gap analysis?  We can do that!
