Moorpark, Calif. – January 16, 2017
UNA Purchasing Solutions and Chosen Payments have entered into an exclusive partnership to
provide UNA members with discounted credit card processing and other merchant services. This
includes gift card and loyalty programs, merchant loans, marketing support and data breach
Chosen Payments joins the UNA community of suppliers which include Fed Ex, Staples and Hotel
Engine among more than 75 Affinity Suppliers endorsed by UNA. UNA was founded in 2003 by
Anthony Clervi, President and CEO with a mission of using the collective purchasing power of many
companies to obtain massive discounts for all of its members. UNA works with numerous trade
associations to provide discounted services on hundreds of different types of business products and
services and is responsible for transacting over $100 billion annually for 50,000+ businesses.
“Most associations will never be able to get the discounts that we can get for our members” said,
Daniel Schuman, Director of Business Development for UNA. Schuman estimates UNA members
save as much as 20% on every day purchases. UNA welcomes new businesses to join and there is
no fee to join to begin receiving discounts on credit card processing from Chosen Payments as well
as utilizing the many other suppliers of products and services.
The new partnership follows months of vetting other credit card companies according to Schuman.
The decision to choose Chosen Payments as the exclusive credit card processor was based on many
factors including Chosen Payments multiple offices across the U.S. and the ability to handle large
volumes of transactions while providing a personal touch in the delivery of service. Jeff Brodsly, CEO
of Chosen Payments adds, “Since Chosen Payments already has a focus on providing service to
numerous associations in a variety of different industries, Chosen Payments and UNA Purchasing
Solutions was a great fit for both companies that will be beneficial to UNA members.”
In addition to providing merchant processing services, members can expect to find an entire team at
Chosen Payments dedicated to providing marketing support through free blogs, educational sessions
and materials, 24/7 tech support and dedicated account managers who truly engage with their clients
in an effort to fully understand each merchant served. Chosen Payments offers Next-Day Funding,
software integration, EMV terminals and the lowest processing fees available including Amex fees.
