• Cost Saving Programs

  • Together, we're stronger. This philosophy is the motivation behind the history of the Chamber movement, and enables us to leverage our collective buying power and voices across the world.

    There are few better examples of the benefits of group purchasing power than the Steinbach Chamber's affinity programs - discounts from providers of key business services, including merchant services, payroll and group insurance. As a Chamber member, businesses, including small and new businesses, can take advantage of programs they may not be able to afford otherwise.

     

    Lower Fees on Credit Card Transactions

    First Data delivers the most competitive rates on Mastercard and Visa fees, taking the pain out of the cost of doing business
    .

    At First Data Canada, they look for every opportunity to help customers leverage more value from each transaction – developing new solutions to make them simpler, faster, safer and more rewarding.

    If you are looking for a reason to move your payment processing to First Data, this could be it!  First Data knows that there are a lot of offers out in the marketplace. Often sales reps will walk in the door with an appealing “flash rate” – the first thing that businesses see about any program but not always the most accurate indicator of savings!

    The exclusive chamber member “Meet or Beat’ offer returns for 2017 so that their reps can analyze your payment processing statement and if First Data can not “meet or beat” your current payment processing fees, they will give you a $1000 MasterCard gift card!

    First Data Canada offers merchants wide selection devices and payment options, so you never have to say “no” to a customer’s preferred payment method. Plus, the Chamber has negotiated market-leading rates for our services, which are not open to seasonal price adjustments.

    If you have any questions on the First Data offer or require any additional information on this Affinity Program to help your business be more competitive please contact Colin Smith, our Steinbach Chamber Member representative at First Data for more details:
