Interior Savings Credit Union and Payfirma Form a Strategic Partnership to Provide Payment Processing to Members

Vancouver, Canada – August 15, 2017 – Payfirma, a leading payment processing company in Canada, announced today a new strategic partnership to provide a full suite of omnichannel credit and debit card processing to Interior Savings Credit Union business members.

Along with payment processing, Payfirma will provide their recently released white label version of the company’s cloud-based payments platform, PayHQ, to Interior Savings members.

“Interior Savings’ deployment of PayHQ is a perfect example of a collaborative outcome between a financial institution and a fintech company,” said Michael Gokturk, CEO of Payfirma. “This partnership epitomizes the advantages of such joint efforts: we grow our customer base, Interior Savings deepens their customer relationships, and our mutual customers grow their revenue through our market-leading payment processing platform.”

Members will be able to accept payments any way their customers want to pay, and access real-time transaction data and reports. As part of Payfirma’s master agreement with Central 1, Interior Savings members will also enjoy preferred member pricing.

Founded in 1939, Interior Savings is the largest credit union based in the Interior of British Columbia and serves members from Osoyoos to Clearwater. The credit union represents nearly 70,000 members, 21 branches, and $2.4 billion in assets.

“Payfirma’s innovative technology and best-in-class support have made this partnership an easy decision,” said Kathy Conway, CEO of Interior Savings. “We wanted to find a reliable solution that offered the most convenience for our members at a reasonable rate – and we found that and more with Payfirma.”
