PC Charge PCI Compliance: Are you at risk?

Posted by Patty Benitez on Dec 15, 2017 12:00:00 PM

PC Charge has now been unsupported for over 2 years, and yet certain companies have still been using PC Charge to process cards through their accounting software. On April 6th, 2015, Verifone announced they will no longer support their credit card application PC Charge. Many companies have continued to use this software, since they have heavily customized their ERP system. Newer versions of ERPs and payment integrations have better security features and protocols (Hint: APS!) that are PCI Compliant.

PC Charge, a server-based credit card processing middleware, is installed on a business’ local server to process credit card and store information on-site.

Virtual Terminal – Key Benefits and Features

Posted by Patty Benitez on Dec 7, 2017 10:00:00 AM

If you are accepting credit cards in a retail environment only, you are probably very familiar with credit card terminals or point of sale systems. If you are accepting credit card payments in a non-retail environment (over the phone primarily), you can either process transactions through your physical credit card terminal, or through an online virtual terminal. If you want additional features, like saving credit cards on file (using tokenization, of course), sending emailed transaction receipts, or qualifying for Level 2 and Level 3 interchange rates on business-to-business or business-to-government transactions, a virtual terminal is the way to go.

Posted by Clint Gillman on Nov 2, 2017 6:24:52 PM
