OUR SERVICE AREA
While we serve clients all over the U.S., our main focus is helping businesses in the Greater Charlotte area of North Carolina. We go out of our way to help as many businesses as we can, offering bilingual sales, service, and training to the growing Hispanic business community in the Charlotte region.
Why We’re Better
At Total Merchant Supply, we understand that merchant accounts and POS systems are two of the most important decisions merchants have to make – that’s why we are committed to finding client-focused solutions that work, rather than simply “making the sale.”
We view ourselves as POS system and merchant account consultants – not salespeople. We take the time to work with our clients – whether evaluating the needs of a first-time operation or assessing the functionality of an existing in-house system – in order to determine exactly where our services can be of most help. We ask the right questions – about current needs, expansion potential, business operations, training requirements – to ensure that our clients receive a manageable product that meets and grows with their needs.
For example, we have had several merchants come to us when they realized the software they purchased elsewhere was not effectively meeting their needs. Because software can be a substantial investment, these businesses did not want to spend more money on another new system. Rather than selling them something they could not afford, we found ways to help their current software work better for them – solutions that in many cases required us to learn entirely new software systems in order to be of service.
Unlike most merchant account and POS system providers, we maintain a retail location that showcases our wide selection of systems and services. The showroom allows us to provide hands-on demonstrations of different components and system configurations, which often help our clients better envision and feel more comfortable with the systems they’re purchasing.
But perhaps more importantly, our brick-and-mortar presence provides the security and reliability our customers want when dealing with a third-party payment processor. We don’t disappear after the sale is made; our clients know they can count on us to be there, week in and week out.
COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTIONS, BY CHOICE
It is our goal to provide start-to-finish POS solutions for our clients. Whether they need one component, an entire system, training, service, supplies, or merchant accounts, we offer maximum selection and flexibility to assemble the best solution possible. Our customers enjoy our one-stop-shop approach that takes the hassle out of enabling transactions and is fully supported by our knowledgeable, multilingual in-house sales and service staff.
Our hardware and software systems run the full spectrum – from cash registers to touch screens, credit card terminals to fully integrated cloud or computer-based POS systems – and all are available in a full range of pricing, customization, and upgradeable options. It’s our priority to stay current with industry developments and emerging technologies – ensuring that our systems remain functional and relevant over the long term. By tapping into a variety of choices, we can create workable solutions that meet each client’s individual needs and budget.

Total Merchant Supply (then National Cash Flow Services) assisted Karen Mangeney, owner of Jordano’s, when she opened her first store in 1998. Several growth changes later the independent men’s and women’s boutique continues to rely on Total Merchant Supply’s service, POS systems knowledge and merchant account experience as well as general business advice.
“I’ve been with Dwane Walton since before we opened our doors in 1998. I opened my business with a merchant account and credit card terminal purchased from Dwane. I later added a small POS system then upgraded to Infotouch POS in 2005, which I’m still using today. I rely on Total Merchant Supply for POS support, secure credit card processing plus sound business advice. They are just a phone call away. When a problem can’t be solved over the phone or online they quickly come to resolve the issue so I don’t suffer any downtime or loss of sales. Total Merchant Supply has always watched out for my interest and provided great systems and service for good value. I wouldn’t consider using anyone else. They are terrific.”
The Table Farmhouse Bakery
The Table Farmhouse Bakery opened in Asheboro, NC in May of 2013. The owners needed a POS system that could handle their unique requirements. Total Merchant Supply installed a system that not only met their needs but also furnished training and support that exceeded their expectations.
“We have been and continue to be very pleased with our Total Merchant Supply Total Touch point of sale system. Our business posed some unique problems. We are a restaurant, a scratch bakery featuring a wide variety of baked goods, an espresso bar and we sell retail items. As a start-up, we needed a reasonably priced pos system that did several things well. First, we needed it to generate orders to two stations. We also needed a system that was customizable and easy to update as our menu changes often. Because we offer a large variety of items for sale, keeping detailed sales data was very important. Lastly, we needed a system that would serve as our employee time clock. The Total Touch system supplied by TMS does all of these tasks, besides being very intuitive and easy to learn.
Any small business owner knows that controlling cost is key. The TMS system allows us to analyze data easily and accurately. The TMS team worked closely with us on selecting the right system, installing it and training our employees. In fact, their team spent a couple of long days with us when we first opened. We are happy to say we have been swamped since those first days and the TMS system has met all of our expectations.
We are very pleased to recommend Total Merchant Supply to any small business owner without reservation. We are very happy with their product and their customer service”

Heritage Food and Drink is a new restaurant located in Waxhaw, NC. Its owner, Paul Verica, has over 20 years experience working in the restaurant industry. When he decided to open his own restaurant he came to Total Merchant Supply to look for a POS system.
“I had a wonderful experience while dealing with Jill, Eddie and all of the staff at Total Merchant Supply. Purchasing a POS system for our new restaurant is not something we took lightly; it is an investment. During every step of my purchase process TMS was easy to deal with, straight forward and honest…I felt like I was dealing with real people, not sales people who just wanted the next commission. The system we purchased is easy to use, generates intelligent and easy to read reports, and menu changes are simple and fast. The ease of operation makes it much quicker to train new service staff. Thank you, Total Merchant Supply! ”
