Our Recipe For Success

Our technology is undeniably powerful, but our team’s experience is truly

what sets Pineapple Payments apart from the rest.

Here’s to freshening up the payment processing industry once and for all!

Founded by payment processing industry veteran Brian Shanahan on the principles of transparency, integrity, and honesty, Pineapple Payments is here to be your payments concierge every step of the way.

After 23 years in payments, building and exiting 3 different payments companies to NASDAQ, and founding a fourth in publicly traded payments technology company CardConnect, Brian Shanahan needed a short nap. Just two years later, he joined up with SaaS veterans Jon Halpern and Brian Gross to launch Pineapple Payments in 2016. With integrated payment solutions becoming the industry standard, it was only fitting that Shanahan decided to marry his unprecedented payments pedigree with Halpern and Gross’ technology and entrepreneurship experience. With a focus on integrated payments in SaaS, E-Commerce, and the Enterprise, the Pineapple team is poised to disrupt the traditional payment processing industry by coupling innovative products and services with its team’s expert level knowledge.

Pineapple Management Team

“After running a SaaS company providing payment processing solutions to the recreational sports industry, it became clear that the world of payments was evolving rapidly. The opportunity we have in front of us at Pineapple to make a positive impact for millions of business owners and non-profits alike is what I love most. We talk about value first and cost savings last, because that’s what ultimately fuels growth for businesses at any stage.”
