It is a subsidiary of BNP Paribas, a global financial institution.

First Data enables payment transactions for merchants, financial institutions and their customers, whether the choice of payment is by debit or credit card, gift card, check or mobile phone.

In recent news, First Data and MasterCard have entered an agreement where First Data’s STAR Network will participate in MasterCard’s US debit EMV solution.
