First Data – Wholesale Credit Card Processing & Business Solutions

By January 7, 2018 February 19th, 2019 Special Offers, Sponsors


There have been some big changes at First Data that we wanted to make you aware of, as they come with some exciting opportunities to help Pearle operators grow.

First Data has acquired fast-growing payments technology company CardConnect.  The two have joined forces to make sure you are provided with the simplest and most secure processing solutions in the industry.  First Data has adopted CardConnect’s payment processing platform, CardPointe, as a new solution that will add great value to the services we provide.

CardPointe is a very powerful, comprehensive and easy-to-use platform that allows merchants to simply process credit card payments, manage transactions, access detailed reports, complete the PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire, set up billing plans and more.

In addition to CardPointe, our ISV partners will have access to the Bolt P2PE API.  Bolt makes it simple to integrate payment processing directly within any software application.  Better yet, Bolt brings the power of point-to-point encryption to any application that supports card-present payments.

Don’t think we forgot about you – our partners now have access to CoPilot, CardConnect’s partner-facing platform that allows users to track everything – from merchant application processing and risk monitoring to reporting and customer service – all in one place.  The best part is, every stage of the merchant lifecycle is automated, vastly improving your ability to support your merchants and win new business.

We look forward to further introducing you to the CardConnect brand, and all of the best-in-class solutions we can now leverage.

SNAPP partner First Data/Card Connect offers members industry-low rates for processing credit and debit cards.  As one of the largest direct payment processors in the industry, First Data is able to provide every SNAPP member with exclusive wholesale rate structures as opposed industry standard retail rates.   Average savings for SNAPP members are 20-40% on processing costs!
