About Inspire Commerce

Inspire Commerce is a financial transaction technology company focused on making the world a better place by improving the way merchants and their customers move money. We are passionate about empowering all businesses – from entrepreneur to enterprise.

Our innovative technologies are aimed at simplifying and improving the lives of business owners, employees, customers, and developers. Our current solutions include retail payment systems and cutting edge mobile and e-commerce technology.

By working with companies whose goals include positive social change as well as profitability, we enable the transactional side of business to be a powerful agent of change.

We became a Certified B Corporation to align with like-minded businesses whose focus is on economic, social, and environmental responsibility. We are proud to support the B Corporation movement and the change it represents in the marketplace.   

The Change We Seek™

Inspire Commerce is proud to be a part of the B Corporation community. We are focused on creating the largest collective benefit possible in the world in which we as businesses and individuals operate. We are committed to fostering a future where both merchants and their customers have clear and affordable options for requesting and receiving payments. 

·    Inspire Commerce offers the For Benefit Merchant Program, which both guarantees reduced fees for our merchants, as well as donates a minimum of 10% of our revenue stream to our merchants’ non-profit of choice.   

·    We love supporting our fellow B Corps, and to share and show that love, we go one step further. In addition to the charitable donations, we also help offset our B Corp merchants’ annual B Lab certification fees.   

·    As a triple bottom line company, Inspire Commerce is committed to corporate social responsibility. We believe that business success is measured through profits, people, and the planet.

By operating sustainably for these purposes, we believe we can benefit the greater community in which we live.
