First Data has signed an extension of its merchant services partnership with Provident Bank, a $7.3 billion-asset bank that services central and northern New Jersey.
First Data will provide point of sale payment technology to the banks customers throughout its 78 branches. Provident also increased its footprint via a recent acquisition of Sterling Bancorp.
The Atlanta-based company provides processing for card issuers and merchant services under an integration of the two lines of business.
First Data also recently partnered with payments special offer company Foursquare and offers a loyalty technology product called OfferWise, which offers an application programming interface to build coupons and loyalty programs.
