FIRST DATA

At First Data Canada, we look for every opportunity to help customers leverage more value from each transaction – developing new solutions to make them simpler, faster, safer and more rewarding.

If you’re looking for a reason to move your payment processing to First Data, this could be it! First Data knows that there are a lot of offers out in the marketplace. Often sales reps will walk in the door with an appealing “flash rate” – the first thing that businesses see about any program but not always the most accurate indicator of savings!

The exclusive Chamber member “Meet or Beat’ offer returns for 2018 so that their reps can analyze your payment processing statement and if First Data can’t “meet or beat” your current payment processing fees, they’ll give you a $1000 MasterCard® gift card!

First Data Canada offers merchants wide selection devices and payment options, so you never have to say “no” to a customer’s preferred payment method. Plus, the Chamber has negotiated market-leading rates for our services, which are not open to seasonal price adjustments. For more information, please click here.

If you have any questions on the First Data offer or require any additional information on this Affinity Program to help your business be more competitive please contact Mohamed-Ali Kessentini, 905-602-3548 or visit www.firstdata.com
