About Us


          My name is Dave Harduby I was born and lived most of my life in Wallingford, CT. We now reside in Seymour with my wife, Raquel, daughter Alyssa, and our German Shepherd, Luka.

          I started working at the age of ten, delivering a seven-day-a-week paper, The New Haven Register. I also mowed lawns in the summer and shoveled snow in the winter. On the day I turned sixteen, I had my first job pumping gas and cleaning the shop and office. I was doing part-time mechanic work and graduated from high school, after which I became a full-time mechanic. I quit that job and worked in a cable factory, but I didn't like the conditions, so I left and went back to school for a year to learn Computer Electronics. After graduating, I worked as an Electronic Technician for a company and was promoted to a production control Planner. While at this company, I started taking college classes at night while working full time. I was then promoted again to a Sales Support Specialist, supporting the division manufacturing and selling LSC and Gamma counters. I also completed my Bachelor's of Science in Business Marketing.
          From there, I left the company and had my first outside sales job selling two-way radio equipment. I furthered my career by working in the cellular industry as a Corporate Account Representative, representing the major cellular providers. Then I moved on to selling communication equipment for a major distributor in the structured cabling industry. I spent fifteen years in this industry. I then left and worked as an area Representative for seven years in the Industrial Supply industry. For the last twelve years, I have been self-employed in the merchant services industry. I have represented several providers and have done the research to only represent providers that meet my very high standards.


          For the past twelve years, I have worked as an independent agent in the Merchant Services industry. My focus is on representing the best providers with excellent reputations who prioritize treating people well. In a world dominated by AI and automation, it's rare to find companies that value personalized service.
         Unlike other companies that simply sign you up and leave you to deal with customer service on your own, I am always available and can be reached by phone, text, or email. My goal is to ensure that you never have to switch processors again. Building long-term relationships is my specialty, and I'm proud to consider my customers as friends. Many of them have been with me since day one.
          As a business owner, it's crucial not only to process payments through the best providers but also to have someone who represents your interests. Just because an agent is friendly doesn't guarantee that you're getting a good deal or working with a reputable company. Unfortunately, many people prioritize their profits over your needs.
          While cost is an important factor, service is equally, if not more, crucial. The ability to reach a live person seems like a thing of the past, but not with us. We offer 24/7 USA-based customer service, and you won't have to navigate through lengthy phone trees.

With True Patriot Processing, you'll love our service and enjoy very low pricing that remains locked in. We don't believe in contracts, minimums, hidden fees, application fees, termination fees, or leases.
