Reduce Merchant Account Risk with the WorldPay API

Posted on Fri, May 29 2015 @ 02:47 PM

Merchants can breathe easy with the WorldPay API. Our merchant account risk settings allow you to reduce fraudulent orders on your website, and thereby save money. Because fraud risks are constantly changing, Novera Payment Solutions and Worldpay put significant resources into staying ahead of the trends in fraud management. This saves our clients the large expenses associated with managing fraudulent transactions.

merchant account risk mitigation

How We Do It

The Worldpay API verifies every single transaction against a minimum of 200 validation tests in less than a second. This helps reduces false sales and chargebacks.

For merchants, this aspect of the Worldpay API is preset to values which we know work well for the majority of businesses. There are two settings that merchants can change, however: 1) the Card Security Code check; and 2) address verification.


Address Verification

Address verification (AVS) checks the numeric values of the address provided by your customer against the information that this customer's bank has on file, producing either a full, partial or mis-match. AVS is used by all UK and USA card issuers and by certain issuers in other countries.

If AVS is switched on, Worldpay will decline all transactions which produce an AVS mis-match. Partial matches will not automatically be declined due to this check alone, and the same for transactions where AVS is not available from the customer's bank, in order to avoid creating too many missed orders for you.  However this means that AVS cannot be your only defense against fraud, and for this reason, Worldpay strongly recommends that you also switch on the Card Security Code check.

Card Security Code Check

The Card Security Code is the 3-digit number on the back of the card (unless it's an AMEX card, then is the 4-digit code on the front). The Card Security Code check ensures that the number provided by your customer matches that on file at their bank. If there is a mismatch WorldPay will automatically decline transactions.

The address verification check and Card Security Code check settings are both turned on by default in the Worldpay API when you sign up with Novera Payment Solutions.

 

Enhancing Risk Effectiveness

The risk checking feature is most effective when more information is provided about an order.

WorldPay recommends that the following details are included with every order:

  • Full Name
  • Billing Address of Card
  • Payment Method
  • Delivery / Shipping Address
  • Shopper IP Address
  • Shopper's session ID on your site
As always, the Novera Payment Solutions team is here for you.

We understand that merchant accounts and risk assessment can seem cumbersome for small businesses, but that's no reason to ignore it. The livelihood of your business can suffer if you experience too many fraudulent transactions.

The Novera Payment Solutions team works with small businesses to help alleviate the burden of credit card processing risk assessment and mitigation.  We can also assist you with PCI compliance and answer any questions you might have.

FAQs About QuickBooks® Integrated Credit Card Processing

Posted on Fri, Jan 16 2015 @ 11:44 AM

Many business owners struggle with getting business data from manual processes, varied software programs, and remote employees. The unfortunate result is lost data, poor customer service, and management decisions based upon inaccurate customer and financial data.

The solution is implementing an integrated credit card payment system with your QuickBooks® accounting software. By integrating your accounting system with your business processes and other programs, you can dramatically improve the effectiveness and profitability of your business. This eliminates manual processes, connects remote employees and has accurate customer and financial information automatically updated within your accounting system to make a positive impact on your bottom line.

quickbooks integrated payments

Novera Payment Solutions offers a great QuickBooks® Plugin that seamlessly integrates your credit card and debit card payments with your business accounting system. Combined with our money saving flat-fee merchant account, business owners are saving tremendous amounts of money through both lower credit card processing fees and reduced labor costs resulting  from double entry processes.

Business owners considering the transition to a QuickBooks® integrated credit card processing system share common questions, so we thought we would outline some of the more common questions and answers here.

1. Why would I use your QuickBooks® Plugin (Instant Accept) and not just QuickBooks® by itself since it has the ability to integrate payments already?

A: Our plugin adds value to QuickBooks® and savings to your bottom line. If you are looking to process transactions through your QuickBooks® software, Novera's InstantAccept Plugin allows you stop using Intuit credit card processing (which is built in to QuickBooks). This can save you a substantial amount of money in your credit and debit card processing fees. Without the Plugin, you are limited to only the one merchant account provider (Intuit), which enables them to charge premium fees. By installing the plug-in, you are able to take advantage of Novera's low flat-fee merchant account and improve your bottom line. InstantAccept also has many enhancements that allow you to have more security and additional functionality that QuickBooks® does not offer alone.

 

2. What are the benefits of using Instant Accept and not just QuickBooks®?

A:  InstantAccept has several enhancements for QuickBooks®. This includes the ability to store customer credit card information in a PCI compliant vault, run transactions from other devices and pull those transactions to your local QuickBooks®. InstantAccept also eliminates the need for a separate POS terminal eliminates the need for double-entry. 

 

3. Does the QuickBooks® plug-in work with Windows and Apple operating systems?

A:  No, currently only Windows based versions of QuickBooks® will work with the plugin.

 

4. I would like to learn more, what's the next step?

A:  It's easy!  Just setup a free consulation with one of our QuickBooks® merchant account plugin experts. Novera Payment Solutions also offers a transparent “FLAT FIXED FEE” pricing model. Our “FLAT FIXED FEE” lets you 
know exactly what they are paying for credit card services (merchant services) and is the most transparent pricing plan in the industry.

Intuit® Credit Card Processing Can Come with a Large Price Tag

Posted on Fri, Jan 02 2015 @ 11:20 AM

With QuickBooks® being the number one small business accounting software in the country, there is no doubt that thousands, if not millions of businesses, are overpaying for their credit card processing service.

The Intuit® credit card processing service is built in to QuickBooks®, making it easy and convenient for merchants to sign up for their service. This convenience can also come with a large price tag.

Intuit® features a tiered pricing model, enticing businesses into the service with seemingly low rates for qualified transactions. What they fail to disclose is that MOST transactions don't fall under that category. The hidden fees and excessive surcharges can end up costing businesses more than they bargained for when they signed up for the service.

We took a few screen grabs from the QuickBooks® payments website to illustrate the point. Take a look at their published rate chart below.

intuit credit card processing price table

Seems simple enough ... low rates per transaction. Pay a monthly fee to get even lower rates.  What they don't disclose in the table is that these rates apply only to "qualified" transactions.  You have to scroll to the bottom of the page for more information and click on the "Important pricing terms" link.

 

intuit credit card processing fine print

Note the "additional pricing information" in the fine print.

Let's check it out. When you click on it, this is what you get.

 

intuit merchant account pricing information

So now we actually see the word "qualified" in the price table related to the discount rates. Note that there is an additional surcharge for non-qualified transactions. Is the discount rate higher too? Probably, but we can't tell from this price table.

There's more.

Another screen grab from the QuickBooks® payments website.

intuit credit card processing fees

If you happen to have a non US issued card transaction, there are addtional fees tacked on.

And still there's more! See the screen grab below.

Now we have the miscellaneous fees added in, including an PCI service fee of $100 for merchants who process more than 100 transactions each year ... which presumably is just about everyone.  Also notice in the table below, you may be subject to termination fees. You have to refer to three different sections of their 56 page merchant agreement to learn about that.

intuit credit card prcessing fees

 

But we were still curious about what they mean by "qualified" transactions ... is the merchant going to pay even higher fees for other transactions? So we had to dig further on the website.  We finally found a reference to this in their 56 page merchant agreement on page 29.

quickbooks credit card processing

 

So they finally define "qualified" here. But note, anything that doesn't meet the "qualified" definition, is charged at the "non-qualified rate which is HIGHER than the mid-qualified rate." And the mid-qualified rate is higher than the qualified rate!

Nowhere on the website were we able to find the discount rate percentages associated with mid and non-qualified transactions.

This is a classic bait and switch technique to get merchants to sign up for an over-priced credit card processing solution by way of convenience.

The good news is that there are now plug-ins available for QuickBooks® that give merchants choices when it comes to who they use for their merchant processing solution.

Novera Payment Solutions offers a completely transparent approach to credit card processing. Our innovative cost plus flat fee merchant account solution saves you money. You know up front exactly what the fees are so you are not surprised with hidden costs and excessive surcharges.

Contact us for a free QuickBooks® consultation. There's absolutely no obligation. We'll show how the Novera Solutions flat fee advantage can save you money over your current QuickBooks® integrated payments solution. Our QuickBooks® credit card processing plug-in, combined with our cost plus flat fee merchant account solution, makes the transition quick, easy, and cost saving for your bottom line!

Free Privacy Policy Generator for QuickBooks Documents Users

Posted on Tue, Nov 25 2014 @ 01:47 PM

A good privacy policy is critical for online merchants. If you accept credit cards through your website, you are collecting personal information from your website users. Your online privacy policy informs users about how that information is stored and used.

If you are a QuickBooks Documents user, the Intuit website offers a free privacy policy generator that helps ensure you include all the essential components to protect your business and inform your customers.

QuickBooks merchant account

It's very easy to use and they offer a PDF or MicroSoft Word version once you've completed the privacy policy generator. The final product is downloadable from your QuickBooks Documents account.

Steps the create your privacy policy:

  1. Go to the Intuit QuickBooks priavy policy generator page.
  2. Select the state in which your business resides.
  3. Provide your company name.
  4. Enter your website address.
  5. Select all of the personally identifable information that your website collects from the list options available.
  6. Select whether you use the personal information to market to the customer after it is collected.
  7. Select whether the website collects log data from the user. In most cases, the answer to this question is "yes". For example, this data might include IP address, browser type, etc. Most web servers collect this data for use in reporting website statistics and analytics.
  8. Select whether you want to include a statement about the users responsibility for protecting their own account information.
  9. Select whether the website uses cookies. (Most do!)
  10. Select whether the website uses clear GIFs, web bugs, beacons or tags. If you aren't sure, check with your webmaster. This is a technique often used to statistical data about the web page.
  11. Select whether the website offers third party services (an affiliate program might be an exmaple of a third party service for an ecommerce site).
  12. Select whether the website will comply with government and law enforcement officials in order to comply with the law.
  13. Login to your QuickBook Documents account to download your new privacy policy.

The screen grab below shows page one of a sample privacy policy that we generated in about 20 minutes (of course, we blocked out the company name). The actual document is approximately 4 pages long and addresses all the major components that an ecommerce privacy policy should include.  It should be noted that the Intuit QuickBooks Privacy Policy generator is not intended to replace legal advice from your business attorney. As will any business documents you create and make available for public use, you should consider having your attorney review them before use.

InstantAccept QuickBooks Plugin Includes Built-in Fraud Detection

Posted on Fri, Oct 10 2014 @ 12:39 PM

Novera makes InstantAccept available to clients who use QuickBooks

The advantage is InstantAccept integrates seamlessly with the QuickBooks software for credit card payment processing. It allows you to accept and record credir card payments and updates QuickBooks® in real time with no extra steps on your part. Combine Novera's flat fee merchant account pricing model and InstantAccept's time-saving financial integration, and you save a significant amount of money annually over those using other processors and manually entering accouting data into QuickBooks.

In addition to it's time saving integration with QuickBooks, InstantAccept also offers built-in fraud detection tools.

quickbooks credit card processing

According to InstantAccept:

"Cybercriminals are more sophisticated than ever when it comes to conducting fraudulent transactions and accessing sensitive credit card data. InstantAccept™ works with some of the most cutting edge fraud solutions to date. This protects your QuickBooks® databases and records, keeping every transaction safe and secure."

Novera's clients using InstantAccept™ with our payment gateway integration have access to some of the most powerful credit card merchant account fraud prevention tools available.

These tools include:

IPViking

IPViking blocks suspect transactions before they are presented for authorization and payment. It works by evaluating the IP address and point of origin of every credit or debit card transaction. This helps identify and stop fraud before the transaction even takes place. Stopping fraud before the transaction occurs saves your business money in terms of preventing lost inventory, chargeback fees, and unnecessary administrative overhead.

eCommerceShield

eCommerceShield is a fraud prevention solution that protects your business pre- and post-authorization. It provides a triple layer of merchant account fraud protection that used to be available only to larger businesses.  It uses real-time threat intelligence and IP origination data to block almost all fraudulent transactions before they are sent to the issuing bank for approval.  If a fraudulent transaction does pass through for authorization, eCommerceShield features a "rules engine" that reviews high volumes of data in real-time. This offers a second level of protection for your merchant account. eCommerceShield's third layer of fraud protection offers a human element. Any transaction that gets flagged as suspicious is sent for analysis to a credit card fraud expert. The expert on the other end can then confirm valid customer orders or alert you to stop the fraudulent transaction before it is fulfilled.

Chargeback Alerts

eCommerce businesses need to take chargebacks seriously. Most business owners know that chargebacks cost the business money, but many don't realize thatchargebacks due to fraud can actually cost you your business. You can be banned from ever accepting credit cards again ... not a good situation.  Chargeback Alerts reduce the time it takes for you to be notified of potential fraud from weeks to hours. This gives you more time to nullify the chargeback or to issue a refund, preventing it from being counted toward your chargeback ratio.

Novera Payment Solutions is a leader in the credit card payments industry. We are committed to helping your business improve its bottom line by providing significant savings on credit card processing fees through our innovative and transparent merchant account pricing models.

3 QuickBooks Pinterest Boards You Should Be Following

Posted on Tue, Sep 02 2014 @ 12:30 PM

As a QuickBooks user for business, there's no doubt you're constantly looking for resources and short cuts to make your business accounting tasks quicker and more streamlined. In previous blogs, we've shared LinkedIn groups from QuickBooks users, as well as YouTube videos for QuickBooks users. One resource that may not immediately come to mind, however, is Pinterest!

We've uncovered three Pinterest boards that QuickBooks users may find extremely helpful.

 1. Fishbowl Inventory

This Pinterest board features an array of resources for QuickBooks users. Inventory management tips through QuickBooks is their primary focus, but what we love the most is the set of QuickBooks short-cut infographics on their board.

You can learn the following:

  • Keyboard shortcuts for Quickbooks
  • How to determine whether the hard copy or cloud copy version of QuickBooks is best for your business
  • Common error codes and their meanings
  • The ampersand shortcut in QuickBooks
  • How to use the "QuickMath" calculator in QuickBooks
  • Whether it's time to upgrade your version of QuickBooks
  • and just for fun ... you can learn a little about the manufacturing process for Hostess Twinkies (in case you need a mental break)

Check out the Pinterest Board here:

2. QuickBooks ProAdvisor

While this Pinterest board is really geared at helping bookkeepers grow their businesses and increase profitability, it's a gold mine for business owners who use QuickBooks. Here's why. This board has dozens of tips for power users, as well as little-known QuickBooks short cuts and productivity tips.

Most pins are linked to valuable articles on the Intuit website. For example, they feature:

  • the most common QuickBooks mistakes
  • how to correct items posted to wrong accounts
  • how to enter and pay bills with QuickBooks
  • how to enter custoimer refunds with QuickBooks
  • ... and so much more!

When you visit the board, you will see images with small captions. Click on the image and it will enlarge. If you've never really used Pinterest, then be aware, then the large image opens, you will need to click on THAT image to then be directed to the article that details the topic.

3. QuickBooks 2014 Tutorials

Oh how we love this Pinterest board! Yes, they are selling online training courses, BUT they have hundreds of free "clips" around 2 minutes in length from each of their full training courses. Spend 2 minutes watching any of their videos and we are certain you are going to learn something new about QuickBooks that you didn't know before. In addition to the videos, their other boards are littered with links to excellent Quickbook articles, time saving tips, and resources that are certain to make you a QuickBooks expert in no time.

7 Tips to Gain More Twitter Followers

Posted on Tue, Sep 02 2014 @ 12:27 PM

There's no doubt that Twitter is one of the largest and most influential social media platforms.  Business owners know they they need to be on Twitter, but too many of them create an account, start tweeting, and then crickets ... no one is hearing them, following them or interacting with them.

If this sounds like you, don't despair! 

credit card processing companies

 

Here seven tips to help you gain more followers on Twitter.
 

1. Leverage Your Other Social Media Accounts

If you are already rocking Facebook or LinkedIn, use your existing presence on these platforms to let your Fans and connections know that you are on Twitter. Make sure you use a call to action to FOLLOW your company on Twitter and give specific reasons why following you will be worthwhile. In other words, what type of content/tweets will you be making and how will they be beneficial for your followers?

2. Engage with Your Existing Twitter Followers

If someone retweets your content or replys to your tweet, be sure to reply back and thank them for their interaction.  This lets your current followers know you care, making them more likely to interact with you again. When followers interact with your Tweets, their followers see this and may be prompted to follow you, as well.

3. Interact with Other People & Companies on Twitter

Show interest in other companies on Twitter by retweeting their content or replying to something they've tweeted. This will spark their attention and you could gain a new follower as a result.

4. Tweet at Peak Times of the Day (or night)

Tweeting at times when your followers are online increases the chances of them finding you and following you.  Test out tweeting at different times of the day and use an analytics prgram to see  what times your tweets get the most interaction and engagement. Once you know, focus on getting your new tweets out at those times.
 

5. Fill Out Your Twitter Bio (Completely)

Your Bio is displayed on Twitter's suggested users page, so having it blank or filled with non-descriptive information will not help you gain followers.  Your bio needs to tell people who you are and what to expect on your page.

6. Bring Twitter into Your Physical World

If you are doing a presentation or running a business meeting with a large group, use Twitter to get your audience engaged. Create a hashtag and ask everyone to tweet questions, comments, and feedback with that hashtag.  You may gain new followers from your audience that wouldn't think to follow you on Twitter if you hadn't brought it up.
 

7. See What's Trending and Join the Conversation

By participating in a trending conversation that others are highly engaged in, you expose yourself to a whole new market.  People are already reading tweets on that particular topic and when you use the trending hashtag, your tweet is forced into the conversation thread.  Be interesting and offer a new perspective on a trending topic and people will be more likely to click through to your profile and follow you.
Use these tips in combination with valuable, engaging, and interesting content and you're sure to quickly grow your followers on Twitter!
