IFAI + CardConnect:
Simple, Secure & Reliable Payment Acceptance

IFAI offers its members best-in-class payment technology to ensure that debit and credit cardtransactions are simple, secure and reliable.

Now more than ever, businesses are experiencing high processing fees, confusing and unreliable reporting and poor customer service. We know these issues take you away from focusing on your business, which is why we partnered with CardConnect to offer our members CardPointe: the perfect payments solution for any business.

More Ways to Get Paid

CardPointe covers all payment channels so you pay one low monthly fee, and your customers can make purchases in-store, over the phone or online via a traditional countertop terminal, tablet, mobile phone or computer.

Payment Methods

Whether you want to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Debit, ACH, EBT, gift cards or NFC (Apple Pay), we have you covered. We also offer store-branded gift and reward cards that you can sell or offer as store credit to increase revenue and customer-loyalty.

Interchange Optimization

We aggressively manage interchange rates and have built our technology to automatically include Level 2 and Level 3 data with a transaction, meaning you qualify for the lowest rate possible every time.

Save Money

Our simple, online application makes it easy for you to take advantage of our merchant services offerings. Better yet, clients who switch save up to 40% on card processing fees.
