Merchant Services

Ascentra Credit Union is now offering Merchant Services! 

If you have a small business and are thinking of accepting credit card purchases or upgrading your equipment, then you are in need of the latest merchant services. Not all merchant service providers are the same. With new EMV chip card technology shifting liability to merchants who are not equipped to accept the new technology, it is of utmost importance to work with a trusted partner to make sure your business is not at risk. 

This is why Ascentra Credit Union has partnered with First Data, an industry leader with over 40 years of expertise in merchant services. Now Ascentra business members have at their disposal the tools needed to make their business more efficient and profitable. First Data offers a world-class security infrastructure that is ahead of competitors and often at a fraction of the cost than what businesses are currently paying. Together, we're going beyond basic processing to help merchants (just like you!) make transactions easier, faster, and more valuable. First Data offers solutions such as:

  • Credit Card Processing - Whether a counter top model or a wireless card terminal (or both!) would work best for you, we can get you what you need to take Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club International, gift cards and more!
  • Business Analytics - Use tools like "Business Track", First Data's robust web-based tool, to better manage your financial well-being. It's like a check-up for your business, any time you want it!
  • Loyalty Programs - Reward loyal customers, attract new customers and establish and manage a gift card program with this great tool.
  • Inventory Management - Take your inventory management system to the next level with the ease and versatility of these tools and even keep track of everything online!
