The ongoing consolidation phase of Fiserv and FDP in Poland does not bring about any changes for customers using Polcard terminals
The press office of First Data Polska informs about the legal merger of Fiserv Polska and FDP, which took place on April 30, 2021. This took place through the acquisition of the assets of Fiserv Polska by First Data Polska. This solution is due to the fact that the latter company has a domestic payment institution license, which is necessary to offer the acquirer services provided by FDP. The merger of the companies does not bring about any changes for customers using Polcard terminals or financial institutions cooperating with both of the merging entities.
The next stage of the merger of Fiserv and FDP will be the change of the name of the merged company, planned for September this year. Details of this operation are to be announced at a later date. Then the name of First Data will formally disappear from the Polish market. However, the Polcard brand will remain, under which the payment terminals operated in Poland by the American company operate.
