Let our integrated terminal offering take some of the work off of your plate with automated reporting and daily activity balancing.
Managing payment processing can be extremely time consuming. If you’re relying on paper statements, you can never be sure you’re getting a comprehensive picture. Back-office tasks such as creating reports, balancing daily activity at the terminal level for every location and tracking fraudulent activity, can be completed manually – but at high costs.

Interac Flash, an enhancement of Interac® Debit, gives cardholders the choice to pay with debit for small value transactions up to $100 without inserting their card and entering a PIN.
Interac Flash enabled cards come with transaction limits as an added security measure.
Financial Institutions set contactless limits for purchases, usually $100, as well as a possible cumulative, or total spend limit. That’s because Interac Flash purchases are deducted immediately from the customer’s bank account.
Once a limit is reached, customers will be asked to insert their card and enter their PIN to complete the transaction. This will re-set their limits.
When making purchases beyond the Interac Flash spending limits, customers will also be prompt to enter their pin.Contact Us

Many small businesses have been forced to turn to commercial credit cards to finance operations, a very high-cost option.
Sona’s Cash Advance provides a cost-effective, convenient alternative to access the working capital needed to sustain your business.With a Merchant Cash Advance you can use your future sales to grow your business today including: renovations, expansion, website development or working capital.
How it works
We qualify your business for an advance amount based on your average monthly Visa®/MasterCard® processing. Rather than make set payments on a monthly basis, you agree to have a small percentage of your daily credit card sales withheld to repay the cash advance. This percentage is automatically taken from your daily credit card processing settlements.
It is easy to apply and you can receive funds in as little as 3-5 days.No fixed term or monthly payment.Repay the advance as your business grows with an opportunity to renew your cash advance for additional investment capital.
First Data’s Merchant Cash Advance program makes it easy to invest in your business using the money you're already making!Learn more about Merchant Cash Advance
