Welcome to CardConnect! 

Welcome, Business Track users! We'd like to formally introduce you to CardConnect, a First Data company. At this point, we know you probably have some questions about this new introduction to CardConnect and to our merchant portal, CardPointe and how you can be using it to help grow your business. Keep reading for more information about CardPointe and hopefully answers to a few questions you might have. 

Intro to CardPointe

Why are you being introduced to CardConnect and CardPointe? 

First Data has acquired us, CardConnect, to provide merchants with even better processing technology and solutions. During this acquisition, Ignite Payments, a First Data Company, has become CardConnect and as a result, First Data has adopted CardConnect’s processing portal, CardPointe. We understand that you're currently an Ignite/Business Track user, but we'd like to show you what CardPointe can do for managing your business’s transactions and PCI compliance. 

An Overview of the Platform

Who is CardConnect and what is CardPointe? 


CardConnect is a payments technology company that provides powerful processing solutions that keep payments simple, secure and reliable. CardPointe is CardConnect’s merchant payments portal that’s comprehensive and easy-to-use. It allows merchants to simply process credit card payments with the Virtual Terminal, access detailed reports, set up billing plans, manage PCI compliance (including the PCI Self Assessment Questionnaire) and much more.
