Credit card processing rates are highest for non-retail businesses where the payment is made with the customer not present. In addition, the fees associated
with today’s popular “rewards” cards and corporate cards can cause credit card transaction costs to soar. AHFA has negotiated a highly competitive program through Elavon, part of U.S. Bancorp, to offer a cost-effective solution for members to process credit and debit transactions. Elavon processes over 1 billion transactions annually for more than 800,000 locations. It also offers extensive fraud management and risk control. For information, call Jonathan Thayer at 678/731-5711 or email email@example.com.
