​"I appreciate it when I am buying instead of selling and find a real pro on the other side of the deal. Kelly Nelson at Emerald World, who had opened my eyes to the high prices I had been paying PNC for processing, had done everything right. He had taken the time to educate me about something I didn’t know. He had proven that his solution was better for me than my current situation. He had outlined a deal that was very low risk for me: my fixed costs were low, and I could back out whenever I wanted."

​​​​​​​​​​​- Paul Downs - "You're the Boss"  NY Times  March 2013


​​​​​​​​​​​"We originally became acquainted with Kelly when he was Director of Sales at US Merchant Services.  When we found out he opened Emerald World ET we followed him over.  We've been very pleased with the quality of service."

- Cathy Bunke - Controller, Trikke Tech Inc - Buellton, CA

"Emerald World is saving us 18%-20% per month, and it's refreshing to deal with knowledgeable, competent people who actually pick up the phone.  On more than one occasion "Kelly" has gone beyond the call of duty in helping us to rectify some rather complicated processing issues." 

- Eugene Bott - owner, Power Solve, Inc.- White Plains, NY​

"I signed with Emerald World only because the owner, 'Kelly', was the son of one of my oldest friends.  We had been with the same bank for over 20 years.  I was pleasantly surprised at his level of knowledge of the Merchant Services industry.  We're saving a consistent 25+% and couldn't be happier."

- Jenny Hillson-Robinson - owner, Hillson's Western Wear - Albuquerque, NM

"Kelly helped us save over 22k a year in Merchant fees."

- Tracy Frost - CFO, Alisal Guest Ranch - Solvang, CA

​"It was with Kelly's mentoring and expertise that I can honestly say that I am as successful as I am today."

​​​​​​​​​​​- Dave Holman - Owner at WeProcess


​"I worked for Kelly for many years and I wanted to recommend him because I believe in supporting folks that work hard and stand for the honest way of doing business."

​​​​​​​​​​​- James Cassidy - Owner at Payment Pros


​"He knows the credit card processing industry like the back of his hand and always had an open door policy to share his knowledge. If I were to ever get into sales, I would want Kelly as my mentor."

​​​​​​​​​​​- Rachel Wang - Executive Assistant at Meritus Payments


"Signing on with Emerald World was well worth the move from Heartland.  We use the Aloha system and the transition was surprisingly smooth."

- Michael Najjar - owner, Fish and Farm restaurant - San Francisco, CA
