Our Story

Back in 1999, Jeff Skelton started the family-owned S&S Bankcard Systems. By fostering strong, longstanding relationships with important gatekeepers like Elavon to ensure the smoothest possible experience for merchants across the country no matter what they were selling. When the CBD market started to pick up in 2017, Skelton noticed that a bunch of services were popping up to serve the new trend. But where newer companies were just starting to hit the ground running, Skelton had already built the key relationships with banks that he needed to facilitate the process of opening commercial CBD merchant accounts. In the 2000s and early 2010s, before CBD was a hot market trend, Skelton was busy strengthening his relationships with Elavon and PayPal, paving the way for the new oncoming wave of CBD merchants across the country.

That’s where S&S can help

When it comes to CBD sales, the plain truth is that many banks and lending services simply don’t know what the rules are. S&S has been doing this work for over 20 years to be able to give merchants instant access to the types of relationships it takes years to build with banks and services like Elavon and PayPal.

So why should you trust us?

Simply put: We’ve been doing this for a long time. Let’s assume you’re just starting out in business. You want to treat CBD like any other product. However, as soon as you begin, you start to encounter problems. Both Elavon and PayPal shut down your account. You’re frozen out, and you have nowhere to turn. Your options are to trust random gateways anonymous middlemen with your business and hope you can somehow regain access to your money, to contact payment services directly and explain your situation, or to wait for account access to be restored so you can land right back at square one.

Thankfully, there’s another way.

While most pop-up merchant services specializing in CBD products have just started to appear due to the recent legalization and increased commercial potential of CBD products across the country, S&S Bankcard Systems has been in the game from Day 1. Back in the early 2000s, when CBD was barely a byword in sales, Jeff Skelton was working to build relationships with companies like Elavon to make the act of buying and selling CBD products easier than ever. Skelton had the foresight to build a sales-enabling platform that actually worked so that your business could someday reap the benefits. Now that all the new middlemen are swooping in to get your business, you might believe that you have tons of options when it comes to processing sales. What most merchants, along with the card systems they trust, don’t know is just how complex the process is.

What Happens If I Trust Another Service With My Money?

Picture this: Your account gets put on hold by a distrustful bank and you don’t know how to get your money back.

While you might not immediately see the difference between S&S and a newer company, it will come out pretty quickly in the details. In addition to having a client retention rate of 7+ years, CEO Jeff Skelton makes it his priority to treat clients with the respect and care they deserve. Navigating the confusing world of CBD merchant processing takes a lot of hand-holding, and that’s precisely what S&S is prepared to do. If you want the kind of company that’s going to take time out of a busy Saturday to drive you down from LAX to Orange County, S&S shares your priorities.
