How Can The Zip Card Help Grow Your Business?

  • Over 19,000 UA cardholders (students, faculty, and staff) are using the Zip Card All Campus account to shop at on and off campus merchants.
  • The Zip Card/Debit Card Program affords our faculty, students, and staff the convenience of a debit card program to purchase goods and services at on and off campus locations.

Accepting The Zip Card Is As Easy As 1-2-3!

  1. Download and print our merchant agreement or call our Zip Card Office at (330) 972-5637 and ask for a copy of our merchant agreement. One can be sent by email or traditional mail.
