First Data, a provider of e-commerce and payment services, has signed an agreement with Tim Hortons, a Canada-based restaurant chain, to provide transaction processing for its new convenience card program called Quickpay Tim Card.
First Data will provide transaction processing and will manufacture the cards. Tim Hortons’ prepaid solution will also feature connectivity via the Datawire transport network. The Datawire network, owned and operated by First Data, has become the standard in the payments industry for point-of-sale connectivity via the internet.
Peter Harrington, president of Latin America and Canada at First Data International, said: We are pleased to partner with Tim Hortons as they launch Tim Card. We are committed to providing our clients with tailored solutions that fit their business. This gift card solution gives merchants of all sizes the ability to increase sales, strengthen customer loyalty and enhance promotional activities, while providing their customers with a convenient method of payment.
