Who is the team behind WineDirect Payments?

WineDirect Payments is powered by Change Merchant Solutions (CMS), a leader in the payments business since 2006 and a WineDirect preferred partner since 2012. They support hundreds of wineries on our platform and have proven to be a trusted payments provider with great service and competitive rates. To date, Change Merchant Solutions has processed over 5 million transactions for our winery clients. This strong track record made them the obvious choice to partner with for deeper integration.

I'm currently a Change Merchant Solutions (CMS) client. How does this affect me?

As an existing WineDirect and CMS client, you are already realzing the benefits of this partnership.

There is nothing changing about your service or pricing. Please just note that your billing and other documents will now say "WineDirect Payments" instead of "Change Merchant Solutions". 

You can also look forward to more streamlined customer service and exclusive new features, including the EMV card reader.

Who should I contact for WineDirect Payments and hardware support?

How do I set up my WineDirect Payments account?

You can get set up in just a few simple steps. Follow these directions to link your account.

I don't want to make a change. Can I continue to use my existing payment provider?

WineDirect Payments is our preferred payments solution as it is fully integrated with all of our products and services and offers exclusive access to features including the EMV card reader. 

In early 2020, we will be moving away from supporting multiple payment gateways, so that we can put more resources behind WineDirect Payments -- all in an effort to provide you with the best experience possible, from superior service to advanced security and functionality.

What if I am in a contract with an existing gateway provider?

 Oftentimes you can cancel your service with your existing provider without penalty. In the rare cases that your existing provider wants to charge you a cancellation fee, the savings you will experience with WineDirect Payments usually exceed any cancellation fee in a few months.
