Ascent Processing

The destination for payment services

Ascent Processing has been focused on payment processing for Vacation Rental Managers for more than 20 years.

We understand the complex nature of the Vacation Rental industry and the need to streamline the payment collection process for guests and payment distribution for owners/vendors. Our innovative processing solutions are designed with you in mind, so we can address your unique business needs.

Ascent Processing is also very proud to be a longtime sponsor of the Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA). In fact, we were the first payment processor asked to speak at VRMA as an advocate for educating property managers on the benefits and best ways to process credit cards within this industry many years ago. With our extensive knowledge and experience, we strategize together on solutions to improve your cash flow while delivering excellent customer service. We consider ourselves an extension of your team.

We are constantly analyzing the financial, lodging, and vacation rental trends, allowing us to tailor our products and services to better serve our clients by saving them time and money.
