Petroleum Card Services (PCS), a provider of payment processing solutions for independent petroleum and convenience store owners, recently announced its preferred partnership with the California Independent Oil Marketers Association (CIOMA).

The partnership brings exclusive membership benefits for CIOMA’s vast network of: independent wholesale and retail marketers of gasoline, diesel, lubricating oils and other petroleum products; transporters of those products; and retail convenience store operators.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to provide all CIOMA members with a reliable and trustworthy solution for their card processing needs,” said Lori Griboski, vice president of sales at PCS. “We have been working with CIOMA and their member network for over 15 years and have a great feel for what their needs are as their payments partner. PCS’ industry-leading customer support, low-cost processing and secure payment solutions are key benefits we’ll deliver to all of CIOMA’s members.”

Founded in 1999, PCS provides solutions for thousands of direct customers and hundreds of resellers and referral partners. PCS is one of the largest remarketers of First Data’s Buypass network in the U.S. Leveraging years of experience in petroleum processing, it specializes in working with independent owners of unbranded gas stations and convenience stores. 

Acquired by iPayment Inc. in 2005, PCS continues to operate as an independent business unit from its headquarters in Minden, Nevada.
