More than just great rates

Chase has proven themselves as a long-term, trusted partner with CFIB, and our members not only enjoy great rates, but also:

  • No hidden fees
  • No cancellation fees
  • 24/7 bilingual customer support

When comparing CFIB’s member-exclusive rates above with other payment processors, make sure you’re comparing apples to apples since other payment processors may add on other, sometimes hidden fees.

Finally, be careful of terminal leasing agreements. Chase rents its terminals on a monthly basis, so there are no long-term leasing contracts or penalties to upgrade or cancel your terminal rental. Many other processors will try to entangle you with long-term leasing contracts.
