Posted on April 18, 2012 · Posted in Press Release

MARKHAM, ON, April 18th, 2012 – Everlink Payment Services Inc., a leading provider of Integrated Payment Solutions & Services for Credit Unions, Banks and ISOs in Canada, is pleased to announce the launch of the Everlink Merchant Acquiring Program. This turn-key offering is the latest addition to a growing line of Everlink POS Acquiring products and services available to Credit Unions, Financial Institutions and ISOs.

“Our program provides a turn-key merchant services offering that will increase customer loyalty, account retention and improve branch revenues through a guaranteed recurring revenue stream,” says Jim Hackett, Vice President Business Development of Everlink Payment Services Inc.

The Everlink Merchant Acquiring Program, which is often referred to as MAP, offers a complete electronic payment processing service that includes Payment Brand credit processing, easy to use Internet portals for reports, referral submission and tracking application status, and the latest PCI compliant POS terminals with contactless capability.

From a Credit Union or Financial Institution perspective, the benefits are numerous and include:

  • A turn-key solution that does not tie-up branch resources as Everlink manages the pricing, credit review and customer service/support
  • Monthly residual revenue stream
  • Virtually ZERO liability
  • A lucrative referral program for branch employees
  • Access to Everlink’s dedicated 24/7, 365 service and support teams
  • Co-Branded marketing materials

What differentiates the Everlink MAP offering from similar products is its focus on ease of use, superior service and the financial returns – based on different customer requirements, expertise and needs. As such the Everlink MAP program comes bundled with a suite of support resources to ensure a successful launch including a comprehensive marketing toolkit, a 24/7 support desk to handle all merchant issues, and a priority email address that can be used to address any and all concerns.

The Everlink Merchant Acquiring Program was developed to offer Credit Unions, Financial Institutions, and ISOs a complete range of services that are convenient, reliable, secure and affordable and is just one of many solutions scheduled to be unveiled in 2012.
