The best in Payment Processing

Save your referrals up to 35% with Tidal’s transparent payment processing. To give businesses the best rates, we offer both interchange and tiered pricing based on projected monthly volumes. We have the most competitive pricing in the industry with custom plans made for your referrals, and we include a free payment analysis for every customer.


Future Proof

Businesses can pay any way they want. Tidal Commerce supports Apple Pay, Android Pay, EMV and Magstripe, and it’s future proof. Loyalty programs, wireless payments — you name it. Plus, we offer EMV upgrade services. With our custom integrations, supporting EMV doesn’t mean your referrals have to change their current POS. Whatever integration you’re curious about, the Tidal Smart Terminal can support it.


Diverse POS Compatibility

We’re industry and POS agnostic. Whatever industry you’re in, our payment processing solutions can help. With support for almost all existing POS software, our team is here to help your referrals, no matter the business.

Innovative Payment Technologies


Email Invoicing

With our email invoicing software, collecting payments has never been easier. Your referrals can make customizable invoices that represent their business and invoice from anywhere with an internet connection. And once a transaction is complete, the payment is automatically recorded in our web dashboard for easy data collection and analysis.


Recurring Billing

A lot of businesses deal with subscription models or amortized billing. Use our recurring billing feature as a selling point for businesses that are sick and tired of wasting time creating repetitive manual invoices.


QuickBooks Sync

Tidal Commerce makes it easy for your referrals to keep their current workflow if they would like to. Our software seamlessly integrates with QuickBooks, ensuring the transition is smooth and error-free.
