Card Connect is a First Data company. We are the worlds largest processor and have been in business since 1971. Our company processes about 28% of the worlds credit cards.

Overview of Services Offered:
We offer wholesale credit card processing and check processing using our patented technology platform called CardPointe. This platform allows the business owner to process payments various ways such as online via a website, using an invoice click & pay, face to face transactions as well as integrating into most Software programs and POS systems. CardPointe also offers “Interchange Optimization” for business owners who take business & corporate credit cards. This is all done using P2P Encryption and Tokenization for every transaction which keeps the data safe from hackers and reduces the PCI scope for the business owner.

I work with my clients very closely, so I am their first point of contact when they have questions or concerns. I am proud to say many of my clients have been with me for several years.
