Our Trade Association service is designed to build and attract your commercial accounts at little cost or effort to you because we handle it all: sales, conversion, training, support and reporting. We assume charge-back liability, and we provide complete credit, debit and electronic benefits transfer (EBT) settlement, including funds movement. Large or small, your retailer customers can accept all payment types, speed up their cash flow and reduce their operating costs and risk.

The Trade Association Partner Program provides numerous benefits for your institution.

  • Increasing payment acceptance options for existing merchants to strengthen depository relationships
