First Data Rapid Connect Arrives in Canada

Solution Designed to Simplify Integration Process for First Data Partners Wanting to Expand Business to Canada


This month, First Data is rolling out Rapid Connect in Canada. First Data’s Rapid Connect solution is the single point of integration to First Data’s substantial payments infrastructure for companies in the U.S. and Canada.

Rapid Connect makes it easy for VARs and ISVs to expedite the development of applications that leverage First Data’s significant global scale. Additionally, the solution allows for simple integration of multiple payment applications through a single interface and enables fast certification.

With Rapid Connect, developers will also now be able to test ‘on the fly’ using the Sandbox. The Sandbox is a powerful test environment that lets developers conduct a variety of test transactions and instantly view and analyze log files for faster fixes. After processing and passing text transactions, developers can then submit an application for certification through an automated process, ultimately speeding the time to market. 

Rapid Connect will benefit merchant clients in a number of ways, including faster access to the latest payment technologies and quicker onboarding. Merchant clients will also be able to access TransArmor®, First Data’s layered security solution, as well as be able to work with a single payment provider with a global reach.

And, as always, we have resources to help our clients get support quickly with easy-to-use FAQs.
