Equity Bank enables merchants to accept card payments by acting as a link between merchants, issuers, and payment networks. We’re also the sole acquirer (and issuer) of American Express branded cards. We also accept Visa, Mastercard, Union Pay International, Diners Club, Discover and JCB cards. Our acquiring infrastructure includes stand-alone Point of Sale (POS) terminals as well as integrated pin-pads. Acquiring also involves the process of recruiting merchants who will allow card acceptance in their outlets.
