PaymentCloud Ranks on Inc. Regionals 2024

Inc. Magazine has announced that PaymentCloud Inc. is No. 121 on its fourth annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: Pacific list. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the region's independent small business sector.   

PaymentCloud has propelled its growth by establishing itself as an innovative merchant service provider for all merchants from all industry types. PaymentCloud’s CRO Shawn Silver says, “Small businesses play a vital role in the economy and in our neighborhoods, and we’re all so proud to be able to support them. Receiving this award is a testament to our team's dedication, innovation, and unwavering commitment to the merchants we work with every day. PaymentCloud has experienced remarkable success, and we eagerly anticipate further growth as we expand in the future.”

Eric Hagerman, Special Projects Editor at Inc. Media, says, “The honorees in our Inc. 5000 network are the Who’s Who of private companies. They’re energizing regional economies as they engineer the future of their industries. Learn who they are and what they do — they’ll be impacting things for a while.”  

Silver launched PaymentCloud from his garage in Los Angeles, driven by a vision to leverage technology in support of small merchants while delivering unparalleled levels of service. PaymentCloud earned a spot on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list within just a few years of inception and has been chosen three times since. 

In July 2023, Electronic Merchant Systems (EMS), a large payment processing powerhouse, acquired PaymentCloud. This strategic move bolstered the distribution channels of both entities, enhancing their technology offerings and unifying sales, support, marketing, and operations channels. PaymentCloud will maintain its headquarters in Encino, CA, while EMS will continue operations in its Cleveland, OH, headquarters and multiple field offices.
