ACS Merchant Services said its merchant card processing service has been endorsed by the Community Bankers Association of New York State.
ACS Merchant president Rusty Shaffer said the company specializes in the community bank market and already serves 350 agent banks. The company said it is the fastest-growing of the top 50 merchant processors.
Community Bankers Association executive vice president Robert Dufort said ACS won the New York group's endorsement based on work it has already done for some of its 100 financial institution members.
"We wanted to find a company that is not only a major player in the processing business, but one that understands the banking community as well," Mr. Dufort said. "The ACS MS staff and management bring significant community banking experience to the bank card processing business."
