First American Payment Systems Partners with the NASE

Washington, D.C., May 16, 2011 - The National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE) was founded in 1981 to provide day-to-day support, direct access to experts, educational resources and big business benefits to America’s smallest businesses. In an effort to continue its long tradition of providing members with quality, discounted benefits, the NASE is announcing a partnership with First American Payment Systems (FAPS) to offer yet another valuable benefit to help NASE’s member businesses stay competitive in today’s economy.

“The NASE is excited to partner with First American,” said NASE President Robert Hughes. “Essential to starting and managing a business in this age of technology is the ability for businesses to accept credit and debit cards. This exclusive benefit offering to NASE members by First American Payment Systems will help our self-employed members meet the needs of their customers. We know they will not find the quality of products, pricing and support anywhere else, and we are happy to be able to offer these advantages to the micro-business community.”

This new alliance will offer micro-businesses and the self-employed the opportunity to cost effectively accept credit cards and other electronic payments through the industry-leading processor. First American Payment Systems, L.P. is a rapidly growing payment processor that provides comprehensive electronic transaction processing services for more than 140,000 merchants throughout the United States.

“First American is eager to offer payment solutions to the NASE members, as we know both parties will benefit greatly,” said Rick Rizenbergs, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing  at First American Payment Systems. “We are confident that the wide variety of merchants will be pleased at the products and support First American will provide.”
