5 Little-Known Facts About Credit Card Processing That Therabill Users SHOULD  Know

Posted on Fri, Feb 24 2017 @ 03:36 PM

If your therapy practice accepts credit cards, you may think you already know everything that you need to know. But here are 5 extremely important facts that you may not be aware of. Being armed with this information will save your practice money and improve your bottom line.

therabill1-1.jpg

5 Little-Known Facts About Credit Card Processing That Could be Costing Your Practice More Than It Should Be Paying

1.  Credit card processing fees are tax deductible and it's typically a sizable deduction for businesses that accept cards. As tax season approaches, don't forget to take this deduction!

2. Using your local bank does not save you money on credit card processing. Most local banks outsource credit card processing services to third party sales teams who work for larger processors. By using your local bank you are likely paying more than if you went direct to the processor since it's adding another layer to the pot.

3. There is only one part of your credit card processing cost that is negotiable and that is the processor's markup over interchange and assessments. Interchange and assessment are the same for all credit card processors. This is why Novera's fixed flat fee merchant account pricing structure is so attractive to businesses. It saves them money and there are no surprises.

4. Not using AVS (address verification service) can cost you money. Visa, MasterCard and Discover require the customer's billing address be entered for all card-not-present transactions. If you don't provide it, it will result in a downgraded transaction (resulting in higher fees).
 
5. Tiered merchant account pricing costs you more. You know you have a tiered pricing structure when your processor quotes three different rates: qualified, mid-qualified, and non-qualified. They suck you in with a super low "qualified" rate ... but what they fail to tell you is that most of your transactions will actually fall into the non-qualified higher rate. Novera Payment Solutions' fixed flat fee merchant program takes the mystery out tiered pricing by offering a single flat rate to save you money.

Get some straight talk and learn why a merchant account including our “flat fee advantage” can be one of the best business decisions you’ll ever make. This is just one of the many reasons that Therabill has teamed with Novera Payment Solutions for their integrated payment solution.

We are happy to offer a FREE savings analysis to show you how Novera Payment Solutions can save you significant money on your credit card processing fees.

PCI Compliance - What You Need to Know About PCI 3.0

Posted on Thu, Jul 30 2015 @ 12:32 PM

With several businesses recently experiencing data breaches, it's more important than ever to protect your business and cardholder data from hackers. What many small businesses don't know is that the steps toward PCI compliance have changed with the Jan 1, 2015 introduction of PCI 3.0. Here's what you need to know!

pci compliance

Why did the standards change?

The PCI Standards are updated based on feedback from the industry and response to current market needs.

Drivers for this change included:

  • Lack of education and awareness
  • Weak passwords, authentication
  • Third-party security challenges
  • Slow self-detection, malware
  • Inconsistency in assessments

The changes in version 3.0 were designed to help organizations take a proactive approach to protect cardholder data that focuses on security, not compliance, and makes PCI DSS a business-as-usual practice.

Education and awareness

Lack of education and awareness around payment security, as well as poor implementation and maintenance of the PCI Standards, lead to many of the high-profile security breaches that have been in the news. Updates to the standards are geared towards helping businesses and organizations better understand the intent of requirements and how to properly implement and maintain controls across their business.

What's New?

  • Best practices for implementing security into business-as-usual activities to maintain ongoing compiance
  • Navigating the PCI DSS guidance was added for easier understanding of each requirement and security goal
  • Req. 8.4 - Password education for users
  • Req. 9.9 - POS security training and education

Increased flexibility

Changes in PCI DSS and PA-DSS 3.0 focus on  the most frequently seen risks that lead to incidents of cardholder data compromise. These include weak passwords and authentication methods, malware, and poor self-detection. Added flexibility on ways to meet the requirements enables business and organizations to take a more customized approach to addressing and mitigating common risks and problem areas.

What's new?

  • Req. 8.2.3 - allows for organizations to implement the password strength appropriate for its security strategy
  • Req. 10.6 - More flexiblity to prioritize log reviews based on the organizations risk management strategy

Security as a shared responsibility

Today’s payment environment is complex, creating multiple points of access to cardholder data. Changes introduced with PCI DSS and PA-DSS focus on helping business and organizations understand their PCI DSS responsibilities when working with different business partners to ensure cardholder data security.

What's new?

  • Guidance on outsouorcing PCI Dss responsibilities
  • Req. 12.9 - PCI DSS responsiblities for service providers

In order to stay competitive in terms of security and compliance, businesses and organizations need to have a structured and continuos approach to solving ongoing security challenges, but it has to be easy enough to implement every day.  This is what PCI 3.0 is all about.

Novera Payment Solutions takes the worry off your plate. Our payment processing systems are PCI compliant and secure.  Our goal is to make payment processing easy and affordable. Our flat fee merchant account pricing saves businesses money, and our next day deposits ensure they have their money fast.

If You Accept Credit Cards, You Must Protect Card Holder Data

Posted on Thu, Jul 30 2015 @ 12:29 PM

In October 2015, merchants will be liable for fraud on card-present transactions if the customer presents a chip card and the merchant doesn't have the proper system (EMV) in place to accept it. This means credit card merchants who don't make the switch to EMV technology may have to pay chargeback fees on any fraudulent transacations that occur.

emv transition

While EMV technology is extremely important, there is much business owners can do to protect card holder data and minimize fraud while they don't have EMV technology implemented.

Card Present Transactions

Confirm the last four on the card match the four digits on the terminal

Before completing the transaction, verify that the last four numbers showing on the terminal actually match the last four numbers on the front the credit card. As a consumer, you may have experienced being in a business and making a purchase where the clerk asks for the card after you swipe it. They are doing this to visually confirm the last four digits match. It's a simple, yet effective way to minimize credit card fraud in your business. Once EMV technology is implemented, this process becomes automated. But while your business is still running magnetic stripes, this step is important.

Confirm the customer is the cardholder

This is as simple as matching the signature on the sales receipt (or signature display) to the signature on the back of the card.  If there is not a signature on the back of the card, request to see a drivers license or other form of ID containing a photo and signature.

Card Not Present Transacations

Destroy card holder data in a secure manner

If you take orders over the phone or have to write down/record card holder data for some reason, it's essential that you destroy in a secure manner and in a timely manner after use. A cross cut shredder is advised.  Be aware, according to the PCI Compliance guidelines, you are not supposed to save or store card holder data in a non-secure environment.

Avoid sending or requesting card holder data through non-secure systems

Never request card holder data via email, and never send card holder data via email.  Never setup non-secure online forms to collect card holder data.

Do not setup non-secure online forms to collect card holder data

Online forms on websites that arenot secured with the proper SSL certificates and form encryption technology are dangerous and vulnerable. They are not secure and they are not PCI Compliant. Do not use them.

Do not store electronic card holder data locally

Cardholder data must be stored only on a server dedicated to processing credit card transactions, protected by a dedicated firewall, and subjected to quarterly security scans. You should not store cardholder data on a web server, laptop, tablet, PDA, or on portable media such as a USB drive. All are highly vulnerable to security breaches and they are not PCI Compliant.

Concerned About Card Holder Data Security?

You should be!

Working with a company like Novera Payment Solutions can help ensure you are meeting all PCI compliance requirements and conforming to industry best practices, enuring your business (and your customers' card holder data) is protected. Combined with our innovative flat fee merchant account pricing model, Novera Payment Solutions not only ensures your business payments security, but also saves your business a significant amount of money in credit card processing fees.
