First Data LogoFor the past seven years, the BCLCA has had a preferred partnership with First Data Canada for merchant services (credit card/debit processing). BCLCA members have enjoyed the very best in rates and fees with First Data. First Data offers a full suite of integrated payment solutions for the hospitality industry such as Online, Front Desk, Restaurant, and Liquor Store payment solutions. Due to other service providers’ high “non-qualified” surcharges and extra fees, the quoted base rate is no longer as important as the total cost to process the total mix of cards. Please contact Paresh Karkanis at 1-800-886-1052 extension 6023538 or paresh.karkhanis@firstdata.com or direct dial 905-602-3554 and ask him to compare your current merchant processing costs with First Data’s offer as it could help you save money. If First Data cannot beat your current providers rate, they will offer you a $1,000 prepaid MasterCard.
