Today, we are deploying many exciting enhancements to the Merchant Center. Here’s a look at all the new features that are included in the release.
As you likely know, access to our Merchant Center is complimentary to all CardConnect clients. This access allows for basic reporting on transactions and viewing of all processing statements.
Our new Marketplace is similar to Apple and Android’s app stores, an area where you can easily register for add-on services as they become available. On Monday, these services will include:
Three products offered directly by CardConnect.
CardConnect Gateway + Virtual Terminal: a powerful Virtual Terminal that turns your computer into a payment processing terminal. Bundled in this service is a connection to the CardConnect Gateway. This allows access to our API library, along with the connection needed to use any of our integrated solutions.
CardConnect Mobile: a new mobile swipe device and app for iOS and Android devices.
CardConnect ACH: provides the ability to accept eChecks using the CardConnect Virtual Terminal.
Shopping Cart and Accounting Plugins
Six new plugins that connect your CardConnect Gateway and processing account to popular business applications.
POS offerings from two of our partners.
Instore: this robust iPad-based POS solution is ideal for quick-service businesses and natively integrated with your CardConnect processing account.
Clover: a beautiful POS system, that while not integrated with the CardConnect Gateway, is still available to any CardConnect client.
Another new tab you’ll find in the Merchant Center. My Account provides administrative capabilities for the CardConnect Gateway + Virtual Terminal, CardConnect Mobile, and CardConnect ACH.
You can add new services, along with seeing which products are activated for each of your merchant accounts (aka MIDs). For CardConnect Mobile users, come here for modifying app users and ordering additional swipe devices.
Various improvements have been made to the Virtual Terminal. The biggest ones include the ability to run partial refunds and partial captures, along with force credits. If you accept eChecks, our Virtual Terminal now supports multiple ACH accounts in one environment – helpful for multi–location businesses.
A few improvements can be found with our e-mail receipts. You can now customize the subject line of a receipt, and we also have an option to automatically send a receipt any time an email is included with a transaction.
When you log into the Merchant Center, you’re probably aware of the alert notification section in your dashboard. Now you will see a few new alert types, such as transaction decline and transaction rejected. You can also close alerts you no longer wish to see, and configure which types of alerts show in your dashboard.
Thanks for checking out all the details of this release – we’re excited for it, and hope you enjoy the new features.
