Some of the people who count on us.

‘What is Cost Plus pricing?'

'Are your solutions PCI Compliant?'

'Is there a better way for us to process our payments?'

'Who do we call for support?'

There’s no question you can’t ask us. We’ve heard them all.

Payment processing can be confusing. But when you find the right people, it all makes sense (hint: we think that's us).

We've rolled out payment solutions for hundreds of law firms across North America, so we know a thing or two. Leverage our experience to identify inefficiencies and opportunities, and to get the most out of your payments systems.

Our common process for unique solutions.

You talk, we listen.

Anyone can reduce your fees (even a robot). We want to create a better payments experience for your staff and customers. That starts with having the right conversation.

We tailor a solution for you.

Your business is unique. Why settle for cookie-cutter? Our large network of payments partners means we always deliver a tailored solution based on your needs and our experience.

We support, you save.

If you like 1-800 numbers we can recommend a good therapist. Working with us means saving time, money and frustration. We are your passionate first point of contact, always.

A customer relationship that's really a partnership.

We have a different way of working with our clients, which we call 'partnering'. Foreign as this concept may seem to many in the payments industry, we think it makes perfect sense.

We find that this approach helps to deliver smart, customized and cost-efficient solutions. And, as any of our clients will tell you, it saves them a heck of a lot on headache pills.

“We’ve reduced the time our team spends on collections and modernized our payment options for clients. Choosing Baseline has been a great decision for our firm.”

Janine Kroser, COO, Alexander Holburn LLP
