ezimerchant Professional version 4
If you use the manual credit card transaction method, the ezimerchant Professional Global Transaction Server will supply you with your customers credit card details so that you can process them manually via a standard EFTPOS merchant account terminal. You may already have an EFTPOS terminal if you have a retail outlet or run a mail order business, so you can use this method immediately.
- Immediate set-up if you already have a terminal
- It is a manual process so it can be very costly in terms of labour.
- It is getting increasingly difficult to obtain an EFTPoS terminal for card not present transactions.
- It is likely to be against the merchant service agreement with your bank
- Handling credit card data exposes you to the risk of that data being compromised. (see Accepting credit cards online)
- It is extremely difficult to comply with PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) using this processing method.
