Reliable Payments has joined the
Virginia Automotive Association (VAA)

Reliable Payments has joined the Virginia Automotive Association (VAA) as the endorsed merchant card services provider, which will provide value to VAA members through the promotion of merchant services for automotive accounting and receivable departments.

With over 50 combined years of industry and business experience, Reliable Payments is currently serving over 60 auto shops statewide representing $25,000,000 in annual credit/debit card processing volume. Reliable Payments has led the way in Virginia with the compliant cash-discounting and surcharging services, with the auto repair shop being the #1 industry to adopt this service. Through this exciting partnership with Reliable Payments, VAA members will receive ongoing education regarding how to improve efficiency and savings in the area of receivable as well as have access to opt-in to the Reliable Payments FlexFee program, where the business will be able to pass the credit card fee on to the customer with a fully compliant surcharging or cash-discounting program. Reliable Payments has also revolutionized the switching and implementation process with “The First 30” program, a 30-day dedicated support manager that focuses on setting up new accounts, regular check-ins, assist in canceling old accounts, and reporting/back-end training.

The VAA is designed to connect Virginia Automotive’s professionals and provide programs that help automotive businesses network with other owners in the industry, provide education to improve business and stay up-to-date on industry topics and trends and save money through access to community partners such as Reliable Payments.

“When we first met with Steve Harler of Reliable Payments, a few things stood out. One, he clearly understood every detail of the processing business, and we felt our members would get the best value from them. And two, we knew that he and his staff would work very hard to make sure our members had the information they need to make the best decision for their business. After Steve presented to our Board, it was clear this was the company we wanted to partner with. We are very excited to have Reliable Payments as an Endorsed VAA Program Vendor, and look forward to our new relationship and the value they will bring to our members,” said Steve Akridge, VAA Executive Director.

Reliable Payments President, Stephen Harler, and Reliable Payments CEO, Patrick Gallagher, acknowledge and appreciate the passion behind VAA’s members committed to serving customers throughout Virginia. “We place a great deal of value on this relationship and will provide VAA members with the white-glove service while providing the most customizable payment technology,” says Reliable Payments President, Stephen Harler.
