Affiliated Acceptance Home Office

Affiliated Acceptance Corporation (AAC) has provided recurring membership facilities and schools with payment processing and full service billing since 1989. Beginning in Kansas City, Missouri, our founders organized a company to provide a solid foundation and leadership in business development services for the Martial Arts industry. We have since expanded our reach to health clubs, personal trainers and other fitness/wellness entrepreneurs. Membership organizations that have recurring payments benefit from our years of experience and focus on allowing you to do business your way.

Affiliated Acceptance Billing and Payment Processing

Our Martial Arts, health club and fitness industry clients gain from our payment processing and full service billing, detailed reporting, on-time delivery of payments and personal customer service.

Our payment processing and billing solutions are cost-effective and consistent, enabling our clients to plan business growth while staying focused on their members and students.
