Located in the heart of Silicon Valley California, Agora Advantage was founded after we realized that the way business owners find the best products and services for their business was broken. Traditional companies in the "merchant service industry" revolve around the idea of rewarding their sales teams for bringing in new accounts, while focusing considerably less time rewarding their loyal customers and affiliates. This resulted in high fees for business owners on credit card processing, uncertainty in how to find additional products/services to help grow their business, and many businesses switching services trying to find the right partner. Inevitably this brought confusion and frustration to those running a business.
So we set out to bring clarity to this chaotic industry. With 25 years of experience in merchant services, Agora Advantage was created by industry veterans to bring more value to businesses, business owners, and resellers than was ever done previously. Our system of "Inclusion" hyper-rewards everyone and gets them on the same team. We reward business owners with world class services at steep discounts in the Merchant Marketplace, and we reward individuals for sharing our Merchant Marketplace and Income Opportunity with others.
We're a company that helps businesses achieve their goals. Agora Advantage came about as a way to better service our Merchants. We are constantly being asked for recommendations for other suppliers. We came up with the idea of the Merchant Marketplace. We have done the legwork for you, the business owner, so that you may spend your time growing your business. We've screened the vendors in our Marketplace with you in mind.
