How We’re Different
We created Gravity Payments because thousands of hard-working business owners were being overcharged and underserved by credit card processors. Today, we serve over 13,000 merchants across America, saving them millions in fees and hours of frustration. Though we’ve grown substantially over the years, we treat each of our clients as if they’re our first client. We are devoted to complete transparency. We don’t confuse our community business owners with credit card gibberish or hide anything in the fine print. Instead, we strive to make credit card processing as simple as possible.
We owe our values-based philosophy to our founder, Dan Price. In 2004, it was his commitment to level the payment processing playing field that launched Gravity.
Since then, Dan’s leadership has earned him Entrepreneur Magazine’s Entrepreneur of 2014, the 2014 Seattle Business CEO Excellence Award, GeekWire’s 2013 Young Entrepreneur of the Year, and the 2010 SBA National Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award presented by President Obama.
In 2015, he launched a $70,000 minimum wage at the company, which led to more employees buying homes, having babies and paying off debt. Employees stayed with the company longer and were more engaged, helping Gravity’s revenue to triple. He has since written about his fight for worker rights and standing up for small businesses on his social media and in media publications around the world. The results of the minimum wage experiment have been covered in the New York Times, BBC and CBS News.
