Retail Council of New York State
No one seems to carry cash these days. That means merchants like you need the ability to accept credit and debit cards in any situation. But taking plastic for payment also means taking on new processing fees. Wouldn't it be nice to have transparent billing, minimal fees and personalized service from your payment processor? That's where the Retail Council of New York State, NYFB's credit card processing program, can help.
