VersaPay will provide all BIABC members preferred rates when implementing any VersaPay on-site or online payment processing solution.

"I believe this Partnership provides important benefits to interested BIA business members," said Patricia Barns, BIABC President and Executive Director of the Hastings North BIA. "In particular, it gives them the opportunity to realize potential operating cost savings, which is extremely valuable given the challenging economic environment."
