The KDLA has partnered with Marathon Processing Systems

Now available to all members of the KDLA: a preferred KDLA Group Processing Rate and Marathon Processing’s IP Fusion software negotiated complimentary to all members. Members using either a credit card terminal or an online web gateway beware— these solutions cannot pass the enhanced data required to keep each business, reward and corporate card at its lowest wholesale rate. Using IP Fusion, you will realize a cost savings of 20 – 40% in card fees, not even taking into account the group threshold. To further look into the Marathon program to contain this business cost, contact Matthew Smith at 913-647-5800, extension 255. Your participation matters!
