Powering payments for government agencies and municipalities

More than just a payments processor, Elavon is a leading single source payments provider in the government sector. Through our consultative service and advanced technologies, we help digitize and innovate the payment experience for our public sector customers and their constituents.

American Express

Accept American Express just like any other card program – with the same speed, a single statement and a single point-of-contact – exclusively with Elavon.

Focus on your purpose; not payments

Your mission is to serve the communities in which you live and work. Time and effort spent on paper-based processes, payment security and validating and maintaining PCI DSS compliance takes away from your ability to be responsive to the needs of your citizens. We understand that payment acceptance is only a small part of what you do - we are here to be your partner to help streamline and secure your transaction processes.

End-to-end transaction security

Mitigate risk through a layered security approach including encryption and tokenization.

Simplify PCI DSS compliance validation

Reduce time and cost to validate and maintain PCI DSS compliance.

Committed to public sector

Our dedicated government team and 24/7 customer support staff are here when needed.
