Dedicated To Payment Processing For the Intimates Industry
Payment processing is not just our business, it’s our passion!

Steve Kimberling, EVP

A long time supporter of the intimate apparel industry, Steve Kimberling has left Humboldt Merchant
Services after 13 years and has launched “Intimate Payments”, a credit card processing merchant service
provider focused on the intimates industry.
Kimberling has been involved in the intimate apparel industry for more than five years. He can be seen
exhibiting at the International Lingerie Show and is a frequent visitor to Curve, as well as several smaller
regional shows. In addition, he has had articles appear in BODY Magazine, TEEZE,, and
Contours Magazine. The 2008 Contours International Lingerie Awards was sponsored in part by
Kimberling as well.
“The last 5 years have been very educational in all aspects of the industry. There are not very many
merchant service providers out there who get frequent phone calls from merchants asking for his
opinion on who has the best plus size lingerie line, whose fulfillment ratios seem to be the best, or if I
can refer them to a US factory or lingerie production. I have experienced the industry from many angles
and am looking forward to putting this knowledge to work for every merchant in the business.”
In addition to his work with business owners in the intimate space, Steve has also acted as buyer. His
wife, Tayler opened a retail lingerie shop in their Northern California area in 2006. When away from his
ILS booth Steve can be seen working with clients on their credit card processing needs as well as writing
orders with vendors. His involvement with the retail side of the business provides a unique perspective
other merchant service providers do not have.
“I am extremely excited to launch Intimate Payments in 2010. I truly look forward to meeting new
clients and discussing new opportunities with those I have had the pleasure to work with during my
years at Humboldt Merchant Services.”
