Valero Card Services - VCS

The Texaco brand has used its buying power to negotiate Merchant Service Charges superior to the rates that the individual service station operator would enjoy. All major debit and credit cards issued by banks can be accepted and processed through VCS. VCS collates card transactions from your site each day and presents them to the acquirers for settlement into your bank account. The acquirer will settle the transaction in full to your bank account. VCS will supply you with card payment terminal(s) and PIN pad(s), which will link to most points of sale, as a part of the fee. There is also a dedicated VCS helpdesk which will try to resolve your problem remotely in the first instance or arrange for an engineer to visit. The service is provided every day with the exception of Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
