Canada First Is The Preferred Payment Partner for Canadian Franchises

Whether you run a fast food outlet, a consumer retail operation or an internet-based franchise, you know that a large portion of your sales – comes from debit and credit card transactions.

While paying a few percentage points of each transaction to the processing company may not sound like much, for most businesses it can add up to thousands of dollars in lost profits each year – and credit card processing fees can make or break a franchise.

Franchise Credit Card and Other Transaction Processing Activities

Canada First delivers innovative payment processing solutions for franchisors and franchisees. We offer customized rates and standardized programs that can be implemented across a franchise chain.

Franchises can benefit from reduced rates for credit card and debit card processing, launch a single location or multi location gift & loyalty card program, implement stand-alone or network terminal solutions, accept payments via point of sale, Internet, mail or phone, and submit royalty payments automatically.

If your hardware or software POS is already integrated with a different processor or you would just like it to be integrated, First Data’s semi integrated solution can be adapted to almost every system. You may be surprised how easily it can be done. Typically requiring only 10 to 20 hours of technician’s time, it may even be free for the asking in order to preserve your business relationship. Ask your POS service provider.


Whether you own one Franchise location or many, we make it easy for you too pick perfect credit card processing setup for you!
