UPS Capital Enhances Merchant Services Program

UPS Capital Trade Protection Services, a subsidiary of UPS Capital, the financial services arm of UPS, is enhancing its merchant services program for small and medium-sized businesses.

The enhancements include funding settlement in as little as 24 hours; the convenience of processing payments from a variety of cutting-edge equipment options whether at a retail location, through the Internet, or on a mobile device; acceptance of electronic payments at the point of sale via all major debit and credit cards; and opportunities to earn cash reward incentives when pairing UPS Capital Merchant Services with other UPS Capital services.

To provide UPS Capital Merchant Services, UPS Capital is teaming up with Century Payments, a provider in the electronic payment processing industry. The Frisco, TX-based firm recently announced that for the third consecutive year, it was named on Inc. Magazine’s 500 list of fastest growing, privately owned businesses.

“In addition to all the great benefits offered by Century Payments, we will differentiate our program from the other merchant services programs available in the market by using it as an entry point for the other financial services provided by UPS Capital companies,” stated Tom Turney, payments services director at UPS Capital.

“We are pleased to be providing best-in-class payment processing technologies for UPS Capital Trade Protection Services. Our cutting edge products and services will enable companies to process card payments wherever they do business – in store, online, or mobile. Merchants need simple and flexible options to make operating their business more efficient,” said Christian Campbell, executive vice president of business development for Century Payments.
