CardFlight, the leading SaaS payment technology company, today announced the addition of several new features to its signature payments solution, SwipeSimple. With these new offerings, SwipeSimple provides merchants with even more ways to accept payments from their computers. These features expand the contactless and card not present payment options that make it easier for merchants to navigate social distancing regulations.
Derek Webster, CEO and Founder of CardFlight, said:
Our team is committed to empowering small businesses through our easy to use, secure payments software, and we’re constantly asking ourselves how we can continue to provide our merchants with the best solution to meet their evolving needs.
These past few months have presented small business owners with an unprecedented set of challenges, and we’ve heard from merchants that the flexibility and security that SwipeSimple offers have helped them weather the storm. These new features within SwipeSimple make it easier than ever for merchants to accept low- and no-contact payments as they run their business.
With the rollout of these enhancements, merchants can easily create online Payment Links and send Invoices via SMS text message, furthering their ability to accept payments from their computer when their customer isn’t physically present. The Payment Links feature allows merchants to create a customized, shareable link that can be embedded into digital formats. Payment Links are easy to configure and manage within SwipeSimple and empower merchants to promote their business and take payments online through social media sites, newsletters, and their own websites.
When using SwipeSimple from a computer, small business owners have been able to create and send invoices to individual customers for specific transactions. With these new enhancements, merchants can now send Invoices directly to customers via SMS text, in addition to the existing Invoices via email feature, offering a new way to conduct secure, card not present transactions. Both features are now automatically available to merchants when using SwipeSimple at a computer.
CardFlight is also announcing the widespread rollout of Level III Interchange Qualification Support for Virtual Terminal transactions within SwipeSimple. Starting in October, merchants will be able to easily track additional transaction data for business-to-business and business-to-government payments, allowing them to achieve Level III Interchange and access lower credit card processing costs by up to 30% on eligible transactions.
Peter Wagener, Chief Technology Officer at CardFlight, says:
With the addition of Level III Interchange Qualification Support to Virtual Terminal transactions, merchants who add additional data to certain B2B or B2G transactions can likely reduce their costs, especially on big-ticket items. This is especially significant on big-ticket items like data center hardware or HVAC systems. The inclusion of Level III Interchange transactions to our suite of payment solutions, as well as enhancing the touch-free payments capabilities of SwipeSimple, comes at a critical time when small businesses nationwide need support the most.
