Merchant Services

Community Bank of Louisiana has partnered with Direct Connect to offer you best-in-class processing services to power your payments!

We’ve partnered with Direct Connect because unlike other payment processing providers who take a “one-size-fits-most” approach to merchant services, Direct Connect approach payments differently. Choosing from a robust suite of products & services, Direct Connect’s payment experts will define a payment acceptance solution to meet the unique needs of your processing environment. And, Direct Connect's “one-size-fits-none” philosophy doesn’t stop there. Customers receive personalized POS device training and ongoing support any time they need it from Direct Connect's in-house Customer Care team.

With our preferred partner rates, and Direct Connects Meet or Beat pricing promise, processing payments with Direct Connect is the most cost-effective choice for Community Bank of Louisiana’s customers.

If we can’t Meet or Beat your processing rates we’ll pay you $250*. Take advantage of this significant savings opportunity!
