Establishing a merchant account with Harbortouch is easy. Take advantage of our free equipment offerings, or use your existing equipment, and receive competitive processing rates. Harbortouch enables you to accept all major credit and debit cards as well as emerging payment types such as EMV chip cards and NFC mobile payments.
If you are already processing credit and debit card payments, we can perform a rate review to ensure that you receive the best rates available.
EMV Chip Cards
Harbortouch can enable your business to accept EMV chip cards for enhanced security. Chip cards include an embedded microprocessor that provides powerful security features not possible with traditional magnetic stripe cards. Merchants who don’t accept EMV payments may incur increased liability for data breaches and chargebacks. With Harbortouch, you can future-proof your business and keep your business secure!
Harbortouch supports near field communication (NFC) technology so that your customers can simply wave their smartphone to pay with Apple Pay™, Android Pay™ or other mobile wallets. The number of NFC enabled phones is growing at an astounding rate and an increasing number of consumers are using their phones to pay. With cutting-edge mobile payment solutions, Harbortouch makes sure you aren’t turning away customers because you don’t accept their preferred form of payment.
Lighthouse provides you with immediate access to your account information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This includes processing details such as your transactions, batches, deposits and chargebacks. If you have a Harbortouch POS system, you will also be able to run real-time sales, labor, inventory and financial reports and even make updates to menu or product offerings remotely.
Harbortouch offers 50 free customized, full color cards and a 60-day free trial to all of our merchants. We offer a variety of card options to best suit your specific needs. Choose from a broad selection of professionally designed card templates or produce your own cards with custom artwork and images.
A simple and intuitive online interface allows you to easily select a template or upload your own image and then customize the cards according to your unique business requirements.

Our advanced check guarantee system will scan customers’ checks against our database of negative check writers and alert you of negative and NSF check risks. With check conversion, checks will automatically be deposited in your bank account, eliminating the need to make trips to the bank.
