We are delighted to be the preferred payments supplier with the AIF. This special commercial agreement is expected to bring substantial savings and benefits to AIF members.  It will also add great value and reliability to their events through offering their traders card acceptance facilities.

Chip & PIN Solutions has formed excellent partnerships over the years with a number of trade associations, professional bodies and key stakeholders across the UK.  Supporting members by providing the latest card payment technology, highly discounted rates and excellent customer service.
This new benefit means AIF members will be able to offer their traders a range of highly discounted payment solutions, including short and long term card terminal rental.  This will enable event traders to accept card payments without having to commit to a long-term contract.

By enhancing your trader’s event experience you will increase your chances to retain trader/exhibitors for future events. Visitors are likely to make impulse purchases if they are not restricted to cash therefore increasing the success of your event.” Managing Director, Chip & PIN Solutions
