A New York-based First Data Reseller
Founded in 2010, Canadian Payment Services (also known as Maple Advance) is a merchant account provider based in New York City, despite what its name may imply. Though the company is an ISO/MSP of Wells Fargo’s Canadian branch, however, it appears as if it does business both in the United States of America, where it is headquartered, as well as in Canada. The company is an ISO of First Data, meaning it resells their services. According to the company’s website, it operates as the “largest First Data independent partner.” The company also advertises Clover as a POS solution.
