Alliance Partner Reduces Credit Card Processing Rates

How does your organization fare in terms of the merchant processing fees you pay? Now might be the right time to consider a change!

Rates available to Alliance members through Alliance Member Advantage Program partner Desjardins Group have improved at a time when most other payment solution providers are increasing their rates.

Desjardins has recently reviewed the merchant payment and financing program they offer Alliance members and have made some positive changes: overall Visa rates have been lowered significantly, from 2.09% to 1.94%, and Interac rates have also been lowered slightly. 

New not-for-profit merchants who join on with Desjardins through this program can access these rates immediately. Existing Desjardins merchants will experience the rate decrease in May.

Desjardins has provided an updated rate grid for Alliance members. Please request a copy from:
