ARVC Rolls Out Payment Processing Savings
The National Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds (ARVC) announced a new member benefit with payment processing company First Data, a deal which can save private park operators thousands of dollars in credit card processing fees, according to ARVC’s written announcement.
“We think this is going to be a highly sought-after member benefit because First Data will work directly with campground operators to develop a program that best suits their credit and debit processing needs while saving them money,” said Paul Bambei, ARVC’s president and CEO.
First Data is providing ARVC members reduced rates on face-to-face retail transactions, Spend Trend analyses and ATM terminals.
First Data is also offering ARVC members a Platinum Service Package for reduced rates that includes enhanced statements; a customer Spend Trend analysis; 24/7 access to transaction data; alerts; and a tool to offer coupons and discounts to park customers. ATM terminals are also available at a reduced rate.
Based in Atlanta, First Data is a global leader in electronic payment processing.
The company also offers consulting services and other resources to help park operators improve their payment security and risk management.
