Thu Apr 27, 2017

146488644697235.jpgRichmond, British Columbia - The RVDA of Canada has announced that it is entering into a new endorsement partnership with Baseline Processing Inc. The RVDA of Canada Board has added Baseline Processing’s point of sale transactions and equipment to the association’s group of endorsed products. As the endorsed payment processing provider, RVDA of Canada members can now select direct services through four distinct providers.

Baseline's large network of processors offers clients a tailor made solution that will meet their every need. Baseline is fully capable of handling all payment environments including online, face-to- face, wireless and integrated solutions.

“We are very pleased to be able to announce this partnership,” RVDA of Canada Chairman Sam Parks says. "We look forward to working with Baseline Processing Inc. The difference in this new program is that while most processors use interchange differential pricing, our program is unique in that dealers will never incur a hidden fee. Cost-plus pricing provides dealers with significant savings while remaining completely transparent.”

“We're very happy to enter into Partnership with this vibrant organization," Baseline Processing Sales Manager Tom Bremner says. "Particularly in view of a major processing fee re-organization for large sectors of the Canadian Travel and Entertainment Industry adaptive rate plans and private account management are ever more crucial.”

The Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association of Canada is a national, volunteer federation of provincial and regional RVDA associations which exists to protect and promote the interests and welfare of RV Dealers across Canada in order to enable the industry to maximize its potential.
