Credit Card Processing with CounterPoint

Process credit/debit cards electronically for faster service and less errors!

Credit Cards provides electronic draft capture (EDC) capabilities by allowing you to swipe a credit card through a magnetic stripe reader, automatically authorize a credit card sale, verify an address, electronically capture the customer's signature, and settle funds to your bank.

Electronic check authorization, EBT, and debit card processing with PIN pad support are also provided.

Full support is provided for multiple industry classifications, including Retail, Mail-order/Telephone-order (MOTO), and Ecommerce. CounterPoint supports AVS, CVV2/CVC2, and purchase cards.

Transactions may be authorized using a standard dial-up telephone line. Two-second Internet authorizations are available using the optional CPGateway service.

CounterPoint's Base System includes credit card processing under the CounterPoint Merchant Program (CMP).

Additional processors are available with the Credit Cards Option and ensure that CounterPoint is compatible with the vast majority of U.S. banks.

The system also supports Check Authorizations, Debit Card processing, EBT processing and Address Verification.

Functional Description

During Ticket Entry, the credit card is swiped through the magnetic stripe card reader. Card information is read, and the amount is authorized over a dial-up or Internet connection. The processor returns an authorization number or a decline. Capabilities are provided for call retry and for a backup phone number. Any number of credit cards can be used on one ticket, and multiple cards of the same type are also allowed.

Authorization only commits the cardholder's credit line. Funds are not actually transferred until the transactions are settled, typically at the end of the day.

Invoices and receipts print the credit card information required by the processor. Receipts can support one- or two-part paper with a signature line, as well as an abbreviated sales draft (that doesn't list the merchandise sold).

The Pre-Settlement List allows you to review the day's activities prior to settling the transactions.

Funds may be settled (electronically transferred) with the credit card processor daily. For most card types, settled funds are transferred via ACH to your local bank within two business days.
