For nearly a decade, 360 Payments has earned a reputation as one of the best credit card processors out there. We’ve grown from our roots as a local Bay Area payments company to serve businesses all over the US and Canada, but our values and commitment to excellence haven’t changed. We have especially become known as the leading credit card processor for the automotive industry, a responsibility we take very seriously. We wanted to take this opportunity to explain how we’ve earned it.

Industry Expertise and Experience

Over the past several years, we have worked hard to learn everything we can about the automotive industry – and not just about how shop owners process payments. We wanted to know how you run your shops, what pain points you and your customers experience, what tips and tricks bring you success, and how you manage your teams. We learned all this so that we could fit our payment solutions seamlessly into your daily life. When you talk to a member of our team, you can be assured that you’re talking to someone who has worked with hundreds of other shop owners and learned the ins and outs of each of their shops. You’re talking to an industry expert – just like you.

Peace of Mind for Difficult Situations

Sometimes things go wrong – even in payments. If your terminal goes on the fritz or you receive a chargeback, you need a support team that understands the specific ways these developments impact your shop. With 360, you can count on responsive and capable professionals who will answer your call promptly and help you solve your problem. Again, our industry experience means we’ve probably seen the error or situation you’re describing before and know how to fix it.

Contactless Payments Solutions

The future of payments is touchless – even for busy auto repair shops. Shop owners around the world are looking for ways to service vehicles effectively while protecting their customers and teams. 360 has developed numerous solutions for contactless payments, including our Text-to-Pay product. Designed to allow customers to pay their invoices from their smartphones when it’s convenient for them and without ever setting foot in your shop, Text-to-Pay has helped hundreds of shop owners adapt their business models to incorporate remote payments.

Painless Installation Process

We know you don’t have time to wait for lengthy software downloads and that you can’t afford to stop taking payments while your new system is set up. Our installation and deployment teams are trained to move at the speed of your shop. They work alongside your employees to ensure that the installation process is seamless, painless, and quick. We have great relationships with dozens of leading shop management software products, and we work closely with them to ensure that whatever solution you choose works exactly as you expect, every time.

A Partner You Can Trust

Have you ever heard the phrase “good help is hard to find?” While this certainly applies to hiring reliable employees, it also applies to building and maintaining vendor relationships. We think of ourselves as true partners in the success of our customers’ businesses, and we’re honored every time another shop trusts us to manage something as important as their payments. If you’re ready to upgrade your payments experience and work with the automotive industry’s leading credit card processor, give us a call at 1-855-360-0360 or drop us a line on our website. We’re ready to prove to you that we’ve earned our place at the top.
