The Heartland Way

We practice what we preach.

Supporter of the Canadian Code of Conduct

The Canadian Code of Conduct for the Debit and Credit Card Industry focuses on disclosing information to merchants in a “clear, simple, and non-misleading manner.” As a merchant advocate and proponent of fair and transparent business practices, Heartland fully supports the Canadian Code of Conduct. We strive to fulfill their commitment to ensure merchants are aware of costs related to their credit- and debit-card acceptance—as well as provide them with freedom and flexibility in payment options.

Founder of the Merchant Bill of Rights

Heartland created The Merchant Bill of Rights to promote fair credit, debit and prepaid card processing practices on behalf of owners of small- to mid-sized businesses. Our aim was to create an industry standard, similar to the Canadian Code of Conduct, that calls for the clear and straightforward presentation of card processing costs. The purpose of The Merchant Bill of Rights is to enable business owners who don’t have the resources of large purchasing organizations to effectively manage their costs, determine which processor best meets their needs and realize significant savings.

Making Sure Your Money Stays in Your Hands

In 2011, legislation was passed that could mean significant savings for many businesses. The Durbin Amendment, part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act, placed a cap on interchange or transaction fees and was intended to provide merchants relief from card processing costs. Since the amendment was passed, Heartland has delivered every cent of savings to the rightful recipients—business owners.
