March 10, 2011, Dallas TX: Aspen Marketing Services is now offering a payment processing program to General Motors' nearly 4,500 dealerships nationwide through an arrangement with Chase Paymentech, a global leader in merchant acquiring. With this exclusive program, GM dealerships will have access to more competitive processing rates, safer, more secure processing, simple, customized online reporting tools and best-in-class customer support.
The payment processing arrangement with Chase Paymentech will offer GM dealerships a broader range of payment options, including debit, fleet and gift cards. Fleet cards, used by major federal and state government entities and private companies that own multiple vehicles, are used to pay for service and parts that their employee drivers may need. By offering both fleet and gift cards, GM dealerships will have more opportunities to drive up revenues and increase customer loyalty.
Chase Paymentech is enthusiastic to take part in providing market leading payment processing services for GM dealers nationwide. The Chase Paymentech team has a proven track record of serving nationwide franchise organizations, and will work closely with Chase Card Services and Aspen Marketing Services to deliver a best in class payments solution to a world class franchise.
