New payment integration offers online transactions in the UK
SiteLink′s partnership with payment processing leader First Data Corporation, brings secure online payment capabilities to stores and websites. The seamless integration improves customer service and reduces credit card processing fees and hassle for owners to open and manage their account.
The convenience of online credit card payments has allowed owners to strengthen their competitive position and speed up collections.

At First Data, electronic payments are all we do—and we focus on helping our customers turn payment acceptance into increased profitability."
