Credit Card Payment Processing Services

Internatinoal Cards - VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Diners, JCB
Local Cards - BPI, Unicard, RCBC

Again beginning on Boracay Island almost a decade ago, and now offering the same facilities in other branch areas, TCC/PPC provides a distinctive payment processing facility to merchants who wish to accept credit card payments for their products & services.

TCC/PPC consolidates all major international and local credit cards and is an affiliated credit card Master Merchant and Merchant Service Provider for RCBC-Bankard, Equitable-PCIB, HSBC, BPI, Metrobank, Security Bank and American Express.

The payment processing service allows merchants to forward their credit card charge slips to TCC/PPC and receive settlement from the acquirer through TCC/PPC. Settlement payment is facilitated by TCC/PPC in the form of check or direct deposit to bank account. TCC/PPC processes these transactions in a special agreement with the acquirers.

To facilitate the card approval system among the establishments, TCC/PPC provides qualified merchants with Electronic Data Capture (EDC) machines. These machines are programmed to dial-up the acquirer’s authorizing system.

The uniqueness of our service is that we cater not only to large-account merchants but also to Small & Medium Enterprises or SME’s. In our existing locations, SME’s are now able to accept credit card payments for their services or products, and need not limit their market to cash-paying customers only.

TCC/PPC provide them with manual imprinters and approval access from the acquirer via our 24/7 call center.
