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.

15 Time Saving QuickBooks Tips

Posted on Mon, Jun 30 2014 @ 10:48 AM

QuickBooks is by far the most popular business accounting software for companies small and large across the USA, claiming nearly 95% of the business accounting market with over 3.7 million users. With that many users, there are thousands of tips out there to help companies save time and be more efficient when using the software. 

Here are 15 of our favorite QuickBooks tips!

1. Know essential, basic keyboard shortcuts.

Rather than taking 2-3 clicks to get to a screen to perform a common task, QuickBooks keyboard shortcuts enable you to access screen in QuickBooks with a simple combination keypress. Here are a few of the essntial basic shortcuts.

CTRL-I = Create Invoice
CTRL-N = New invoice, check or bill
CTRL-F = Find Transaction
CTRL-W = Write a New Check
CTRL-A = Brings up Chart of Accounts

QuickBooks Shortcuts & Tips

2. Memorize Recurring Transactions

If you have a transaction that you frequently enter (e.g. recurring bills), you can save time by memorizing the transaction for future use. If you use the transaction on a regular basis (for example, monthly), you can set it up as a recurring transaction when you memorize it. Otherwise, you can use it as needed by entering it from the Memorized Transaction list.

3. Make use of customer notes.

Using the customer notes feature in your client records save you time. Collections calls can be notated, special client requests, and any other communication. Having this information in a central location is invaluable.

4. Make use of the built in field calculator

Simply position your cursor in an amount field, enter a number or highlight the whole number, and simply press a calculating key ( +, -, *, / , %). It's like magic!

5. Make use of the QuickBooks File Manager

The file manager organizes client’s QuickBooks files by type, by year and version. The Password Vault also secures login information, user names and passwords.

6. Use colors to identify accounts easily

If you using more than one checking account, you can change the background color for quick identification of which account you are using. Simply spen the register for a checking account and click "Edit" on the menu, then and select "Change Account Color."

7. Work in multiple windows

Be super productive by using several open windows at once. You can quickly and easily navigate between them by displaying a list of them. Click "View" in the menu, then click "Open Window List."

8. Set QuickBooks to automatically place decimal points

You can save time on data entry by setting QuickBooks to automatically place a floating decimal point when you enter a number. Click "Edit" in the menu, then "Preferences". Select "General", then "My Preferences".  Then check "Automatically place decimal point". Now if you enter 49, it will enter as .49. If you enter 3295, it will enter as 32.95. With this setting enabled, obviously you need to pay special attention to ensure if mean to enter $49, you enter 4900.

9. Use Batch Invoicing

Create invoices in a batch can save you a lot of time, if it makes sense your company. For example, a subscription based service may need to invoice 100 customer $9.95 each month. Using the batch invoicing feature, you can do this all in one step. Go to the "Customers" menu, then select "Create Batch Invoices." 

10. Prepare letters and envelopes for mailing

QuickBooks has a "Prepare Letters and Envelopes" tool offers an a good selection of templates and mail-merge capabilities. This enables you to generate custom letters for customers, vendors, and employees right from QuickBooks.

11. Use "Ask My Accountant"

If you not 100% certain how a transaction should be coded, put it in "Ask My Accountant." You can temporarily house transactions here if they need to be researched, or if you truly need to have your accountant review for proper classification. Set this account up as an "Other Expense" classification so it shows in the Profit & Loss statement.

12. Backup QuickBooks

Always, always, always backup your QuickBooks data file to the cloud. External hard drives or thumb drives are ok, but they can get lost or damaged. Try using DropBox or Google Drive. How is this a time saver? If you've ever had to rebuild a QuickBooks data file, you know!

13. Personalize Your QuickBooks Icon Bar

Every business is unique. At the top of your screen, QuickBooks has an icon bar that gives you quick access to a variety of tasks. You can edit the default icons in this tool bar. Add or remove icons to suit the needs of YOUR small business.

14. Use the right-click feature for quick access

From within various QuickBooks screens, you can right-click your mouse to get quick access to relevant menus. It can definitely be quicker to access a feature you need by right-clicking to bring up the menu, than to use the toolbar and main QuickBooks menu.

15. Expand functionality with QuickBooks Add Ons

One of our personal favorite add-ons is for credit card payment processing. Novera Payment Solutions' InstantAccept or QBPlugin, provides integration for QuickBooks® payment processing for credit and debit cards, ACH (Automated Clearing House), EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer), and Electronic Check conversion using a powerful and secure Payment Gateway and Secure Vault Software. Process credit cards and checks for invoices seamlessly in QuickBooks®.

Our QuickBooks® online credit card processing is easy to use and is up and running within minutes. It is guaranteed compatibility for automated integration within QuickBooks®, so no longer is the need to ever use old outdated, unreliable, standalone credit card terminals.  If your business  has  customers present to make a payment, then a simple USB mag-swipe reader can be attached in seconds for “card swiped” transactions.

In addition to an easy to use turnkey solution for QuickBooks® users, Novera Payment Solutions has also developed a simple, transparent pricing model utilizing a “FLAT FIXED FEE” for merchant services. This saves a TREMENDOUS amount money over the built-in Intuit payment processing offered by QuickBooks!

Keyboard Shortcuts for QuickBooks Power Users

Posted on Mon, Jan 27 2014 @ 08:46 AM

Keyboard shortcuts can be a lifesaver in a time crunch.  The ability to keep your hands on your keyboard rather than switching back and forth between it and your mouse can increase productivity.  You also won’t have to search through all the buttons in the program to find what you need.  Take a look at this list of QuickBooks keyboard shortcuts from the QuickBooks User Guide to make your work simpler.

5 Surprising Things You Can Do with QuickBooks

Posted on Wed, Jan 08 2014 @ 12:28 PM

QuickBooks is one of the most popular accounting programs on the market.  Even if you have been using it for years, there are some features you may not know existed.  We have put together several surprising features that QuickBooks offers.  If you haven’t used QuickBooks, perhaps these special features will help you decide to switch!

QuickBooks credit card processing

1. Fit to Width or Height

Having a report that is wider than one page can make it hard to read and understand.  It never fails when you create a new financial report, there is always one annoying line that carries over to the second page. QuickBooks allows you to shrink reports to fit on one page horizontally or vertically, enabling you to present all data on single page. Love this!

2. Search within Results

Sometimes when you do a search, you end up with hundreds and hundreds of records to scroll through.  QuickBooks actually allows you to search within a group of search results.  After you do the original search, all you have to do is check the box next to the search bar that says “search within results.”  Now you are only searching within that first group of results. Time saver!

3. Define a Custom Field

Have you ever found yourself entering customer data and wishing there was a field that isn’t available to you in the default selections?  Maybe there is a field specific to your industry that isn’t already in QuickBooks or whichever accounting program you are using.  QuickBooks actually has a feature that enables you to define/add an additional field and name it whatever you like.  Simply click “additional information” and then “define fields.” We like customization.

4. Automatically Enter Transactions that Occur Repeatedly 

Do you find yourself entering the same transactions at the end of each month for each client; or possibly even weekly?  QuickBooks has a feature that allows you to automatically set up those transactions to occur at the same time each month or each week.  By pressing “Ctrl+M,” you can bring up a tool that will allow you to set parameters for your repeating transactions.  This will save you time from manually entering the same transactions each time they occur. Time is money, right?

5. Integrate Your Merchant Account

Using Novera Payment Solutions' QBPlugin, you can quickly integrate your merchant account with QuickBooks. Between the recurring transacations and the data entry required to enter credit card payments, the QBPlugin is a huge time-saver. It eliminates your duplicate data entry, streamlines your process in accepting payments, and saves you money on credit card processing fees. Who doesn't like to save money?

With all these features and many more, QuickBooks may be the perfect solution to your accounting needs.  And if you are already using QuickBooks, these features may help you save time and be more efficient with your accounting processes. Spend some time getting to know the shortcuts and plugins available for QuickBooks software. Even though it may take some extra time in the beginning, it will save you time (and money) in the long run.
