NEW FOR 2019 …..stayed tuned 

The North American Celtic Trade Association is discussing a partnership with Payscape to provide members with discounted processing rates & world-class financial technology for retail professionals. With a combined member base, Payscape can offer wholesale discounts to members of NACTA. 

Payscape’s unique approach to credit card processing includes:

  • POS Sytems, CC Processing, eCommerce, Mobile Payments, Websites
  • Friendly, US-based customer service: 24/7
  • 24-48 hour deposits in your bank account

We will follow-up with a survey to find out if and how this connection might serve our members in  keeping you updated in our every changing , fast pacing world of technological advances and services on offer.


National Merchant Alliance (NMA) also working with NACTA Members are offering great rates on CC processing, while many are not looking to swtich systems at the beginning of a busy shopping season, it might be worth your attention soon after to learn about great savings on CC Processing Fees at a discounted NACTA rate.

Wishing all our retailers a busy and prosperous run-up to Christmas…..hope it's your best ever!  Please feel free to contact us at any time, we are here for you.
