A debit card point-of-sale processing service, which will give banks and merchants access to 32 national and regional networks, is being tested by Telemoney Services, a unit of Minneapolis-based Ceridian Corp., in alliance with Electronic Data Systems Corp.

Merchants will receive a consolidated statement for both debit and credit, as well as same-day settlement of debit transactions.
