Financial institutions and large and small businesses, as well as government agencies, rely on First Data to empower them to build stronger, more profitable customer relationships in a changing environment. Commerce continues to evolve and transform how consumers pay for goods and services -- from Seattle to London to Shanghai. This transformation, something we call Universal Commerce, is truly a new reality where consumers expect a more integrated buying experience that’s quick and consistent everywhere, anytime. Empowered by unprecedented access to information and connected by smart devices, consumers want to buy goods and services and manage their money in the most convenient and personalized way, and they expect transactions to be easy, seamless and secure.

Operating in 34 countries around the world, First Data’s strategic focus is to understand this transformation and help our clients capture customer loyalty through solutions that capitalize on it. First Data’s innovations in mobile payments, eCommerce and prepaid solutions as well as payment processing, fraud protection and authentication solutions, online banking, check guarantee and verification services and point-of-sale (POS) services provide our customers the tools they need to navigate in a rapidly evolving Universal Commerce world.
