AICS uses the combined buying power of its members to negotiate favourable merchant terms with merchant service providers. AICS will have a number of merchant facility providers known as approved Acquirers and Payment Facilitators (APF).
As part of joining AICS you will be required to join one of these APF’s to enjoy the benefits of Scheme. Our panel of merchant service providers are able to offer special arrangements and rates due to your business being ATAS accredited. Special rates are also possible because AICS members have protection against chargebacks from supplier collapse lowering the risk for the APF.
