First Data Corporation is a global payment technology solutions company headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. First Data Corporation was incorporated in 1971. In 1980, American Express Information Services Corporation (ISC) bought 80% of First Data. First Data Corporation spun off from American Express and went public in 1992.

The First Data Global Gateway Connect 2.0 is a simple payment solution for connecting an online store to the First Data Global Gateway. It provides redirect based payments (purchase() method with a corresponding completePurchase() method). It is referred to here as the "First Data Connect" gateway, currently at version 2.0.

The Global Gateway was originally called the LinkPoint Gateway but since First Data's acquisition of LinkPoint it is now known as the First Data Global Gateway. As of this writing the Global Gateway version 9.0 is supported. It is referred to here as the "First Data Webservice" gateway, more correctly speaking it is the "First Data Global Web Services API", currently at version 9.0

The First Data Global Gateway e4 (previously referred to as "First Data Global", and so if you see internet references to the First Data Global Gateway, they are probably referring to this one, distinguished by having URLs like "") is now called the Payeezy Gateway and is referred to here as the "First Data Payeezy" Gateway.

The Connect, Global, and Payeezy gateways are implemented here although each have gone through a number of API changes since their initial releases.

The First Data APIs are listed here:
