First Data Offers Special Credit Towards SCRS Membership Dues 


Prosser, Washington, October 16, 2013 The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) today announced money saving offers for businesses made possible through their partnership with First Data Corporation, a global leader in electronic commerce and payment processing. During the 2013 SEMA Show, First Data representatives at the SCRS booth, located in the North Hall #10849, will show businesses how they can save money by switching their payment processing to First Data. Plus, businesses that open a new merchant processing account with First Data will receive up to a $200 credit toward SCRS membership dues.*


"Since switching to First Data we have saved approximately 44% on our credit card processing fees," shared SCRS Member Nichole Hubbard of European Motor Car Works, Inc. "During our rate comparison, the representative from First Data was extremely pleasant and willing show me how to read the merchant statements so that I could see where I was losing money. He was very professional and extremely helpful throughout the entire process."


The SCRS program with First Data ensures collision repair businesses - regardless of business size -will enjoy low merchant processing rates with best-in-industry support.


In addition, collision businesses who join the association during the SEMA Show, will receive complimentary membership courtesy of SCRS for the remainder of 2013, thus receiving 14 months of membership for the price of 12 months.
