To manually process credit cards you do not need to do any integration. You just utilize the virtual terminal. If you are taking orders from your website, you add the HTML tags to your website and your customers will be able to make purchases 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Once you receive the credit card machine you will receive a quick reference guide that will show you how to set up and operate the terminal. We will also follow up when the machine is delivered to make sure you are able to set everything up properly.

Swipe terminals for retail merchants, real-time processing for internet businesses, PC software for mail order/phone order and internet businesses, touch-tone processing for low volume, seasonal and mobile merchants, and virtual terminals for internet, mail and phone order businesses.
