The Automotive Payment Club (APC) was created EXCLUSIVELY to benefit the Automotive Industry. The APC has taken the knowledge, skills and resources of both automotive veterans and long-time payment executives to create a first of its kind “Payment Discount Club” that enables Automotive Business Owners to take advantage of the same special benefits (Association Pricing, No “Junk Fees”, Free Equipment, No Contract Term, Free Paper and Supplies, Zero Start-Up Cost and No Annual Fees) traditionally only offered to mega big box retail chains. The Automotive Payment Club is an ultra-exclusive, “invitation only” organization similar in nature to consumer discount warehouse clubs like Costco or Sam’s Club where “strength in numbers” drives costs down while increasing customer benefits at the same time.

Many of you already know about our member outreach program and our 2014 sponsorships were a huge success. As we are roughly half way through 2015, we are very excited to start planning our 2016 calendar. The Automotive Payment Club is looking to help sponsor at least 3 - 4 new automotive functions, events or gatherings in this upcoming year. Please submit any events that you would like the APC to possibly sponsor and our event committee will consider each and every entry. All entries must be submitted to us by December 15, 2015.

For all of our members that plan to be in attendance, please stop by to say 'Hello' and pick up some special event goodies. We will be having some great giveaways only offered to our current members (please make sure to have your Merchant ID Number so we can properly identify you as an APC member).

The Automotive Payment Club is pleased to announce its most recent donation to the Salvation Army. The APC has a long-standing tradition of supporting the community and we are proud to be able to give back to those in-need by donating to this incredible organization. The funds will help support various programs and services for hungry individuals and families, homeless, at-risk kids, senior citizens, pregnant and parenting teens, disaster survivors, victims of domestic violence, and so much more.
The Automotive Payment Club has just confirmed its plans and itinerary to attend the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada later this year (November 3 - November 6, 2015). We look forward to seeing as many APC members out there as possible. Make sure to look for a large group of APC Staff walking around in our red and black t-shirts. Be sure to come up and introduce yourself as we would love to put a face to a name. Hope to see you there!
