Whatever your business, our Merchant Services payment provider can provide you with an extensive range of card processing solutions, whether you wish to accept card payments face-to-face, online, by phone or by mail order.

By accepting cards you could increase revenue, reduce costs and minimise fraud, all supported by first-class, personalised customer service and backed by decades of innovation and experience in the sector.

Why choose Merchant Services?

If you'd like to grow your business by enabling your customers to pay you using credit or debit cards, with our Merchant Services payment provider you will be able to:

  • Accept all major credit and debit cards

Balancing cost, risk and service for unbeatable value

Card processing could help improve your cashflow, increase your turnover and allow you to introduce new value-added services.

Obviously, you also want your services delivered at the lowest cost possible. But the risk of fraud means that too much cost-cutting could mean you can actually lose money in the long term. our Merchant Services payment provider will work in partnership with you to incorporate its award winning anti-fraud processes and find the solution that fits your business and provides you with quality and security at the right price.

"Installing a merchant payment facility through Unity to take payments over the phone has enabled us to offer our clients more flexibility with their loan repayments. It's saved us time and I would definitely recommend it to other organisations."
