Discounted Payment Card Merchant Processing

In 2005 NATSO joined with First Data to develop a direct, cost effective and competitive solution for payment processing that is fast, convenient and secure. You may use First Data now but that doesn’t mean you are covered by the remarkable NATSO/First Data program! The NATSO/First Data program includes a “cost+” rate structure with numerous reduced fees that include a $0 chargeback fee. Utilizing the vast payment industry experience of First Data coupled with direct oversight of NATSO industry experts, our program supports practically all forms of electronic payments including fleet, credit and pin debit cards plus customized gift & e-loyalty programs. For more information and to get started, contact Dan Hudson at (703) 398-5831 or email Dan.Hudson@FirstData.com.

NATSO Check-Link™

Check-Link™ is a member-only program that provides check verification for thousands of professional drivers and offers NATSO’s assistance in collecting bad debt for an additional fee of $30 per month. In 2008, NATSO Check-Link™ was enhanced by adding authorizations through a larger nationwide network called SCAN.   While the Check-Link™ program already had data on bad check writers at truckstops, the SCAN network is comprised of data from the nation's largest retailers (such as Kmart and Wal-Mart).  In other words, NATSO members now have access to much more information on the check writer’s history. If your location is not currently a Check-Link location and would like to become apart of the Check-Link network, sign up today!

NATSO Check-Link™ Directory Listing

All NATSO member locations are listed through an online directory provided to over 10,000 registered drivers who consult this resource for participating NATSO truckstop and travel plaza member locations. Various search criteria allows drivers to locate Check-Link locations while on the road. View the listing of participating truckstops here

NATSO membership now entitles your travel plaza to join the American Bus Association (ABA). For a limited time, join ABA at a 50 percent savings off of the initiation fee and attract the motorcoach industry to your location.
