Electronic Payments Launches Payments Blog @ PymntsBlog.com

Calverton, New York - October 19, 2010 - National payment processor, Electronic Payments, Inc. (EPI), today announced the launch of an interactive online blog focusing on the payments industry. The blog gives insight on the company's operations and serves as a communication tool for EPI merchants.

The blog enables Electronic Payments to post current and cogent analysis of industry trends, alerts and updates as well as receive feedback from blog comments, postings and other social networking sites, including Facebook® and Twitter®.

Michael Nardy, Founder and CEO of Electronic Payments, commented, "As social media continues to grow as a prominent platform for corporate advertising and marketing, as opposed to just a personal status update, it's imperative to connect as closely as possible with clients and sales personnel."

PymntsBlog.com will be maintained by Electronic Payments' employees, advisors and strategic partners. Industry-related posts will encompass both updates and analysis of industry developments, direct-to-merchant promotions and special offers (sales to be facilitated by sales agents of Electronic Payments and related companies), and real-time network updates should any network functions be impacted by weather, electricity or bandwidth down-time. Mr. Nardy continued, "As a leader in developing innovative technology, we want to be on the forefront of new processing methods, software and hardware. Additionally, we strive to utilize all communication channels to reach our target audience. PymntsBlog.com will put us in the right direction to accomplishing that goal."

Electronic Payments is a recognized industry leader and conducts business in all fifty states. The company is based in Calverton, New York, and has garnered the support of more than 400 producing sales agents nationwide.
