Have a First Data Merchant Account. Which First Data module should I purchase?

Here are the options that you have depending on the type of First Data account:

1. Payeezy Gateway
First Data Global Gateway e4 has been renamed to Payeezy Gateway. This module will keep the customer on your shop all the time and the payment processing will happen via API calls without redirecting the customer. This module allows you to Authorize Only, Authorize & Capture, Capture, Void, Partial or Full refunds directly from Magento. 
 
Important Note: If, your merchant account was created after March 2015 then, you probably have this type of merchant account. Many merchants get confused between Payeezy and a First Data Global Gateway Web Services API. If, your screenshot looks like this then, you need the First Data Global Gateway e4 Web Services API module.

This is similar to First Data Global Gateway Web Services API except for the fact that you can store credit cards on the First Data Server for later use. The advantage of this is, customers can checkout  faster using the card on file. Even administrator can use these to place orders via phone for the customer. All the other features of authorize, authorize & capture, void & refund can be done via this module too.

This module will redirect the customer to the First Data server to complete the payment and then, bring them back to the shop. The advantage of this module is that sensitive information never enters your shop. Disadvantage is that, customers will be redirected away from your shop to complete the payment. You can design the payment page by logging into your First Data Merchant Account. If, you have a Webservices API account then, you can process capture, void & refund for these order from Magento.

4. First Data API (previously known as LinkPoint)
