Benefits of Accel

With Accel you can enhance the consumer experience, which can help you nurture existing accounts, appeal to key demographic segments and drive revenue opportunities.

Today's consumers can choose from a multitude of nontraditional offerings for payments and funds access services. Accel® debit payments network from Fiserv® combines our traditional debit services with real-time enablement that accelerates retail, biller and social payments. A strong focus on consumers can help your business grow by facilitating fast, convenient transactions online, at ATMs and retail outlets and via mobile devices. Integration with other Fiserv solutions, such as SpotPay™ for small businesses to facilitate payments acceptance and Popmoney® for person-to-person payments, can also help attract key demographic segments and generate revenue.

The real-time infrastructure of Accel delivers fast, efficient and reliable point-of-sale (POS) transactions at retail outlets from coast to coast. Accelerated services help enhance the consumer experience and drive your revenue opportunities. In addition, Accel offers dependable and secure ATM access, enabling convenient transactions. Our expansive network of ATMs covers all 50 U.S. states, territories and Canada, and offers options for surcharge-free funds access and deposit acceptance.
