An Important PSA From Our Director of Sales
One of the big challenges software developers face but rarely fully understand is the complexity of settlements and disbursements through an electronic payments implementation.
For merchants in every line of business, chargebacks are an annoying inconvenience and part of the responsibilities of accepting electronic payments. But, if you understand the types of chargebacks, how to dispute them appropriately, and how to avoid them to begin with, you can lower your risk for chargebacks and the burden of the associated fees they incur.
So, you signed a payments integration deal with a bank, processor, acquirer, ISO or agent...what's next?

Payment facilitation was created to remove the friction of having a one-by-one onboarding process so that a bulk group of merchants who use a common software platform can be quickly and easily boarded to a processing platform. As a payment facilitator, Singular Payments’ Payfac in a Box™ solution does just that. When your software has hundreds or thousands of user/merchants to board onto a payments platform, it can be a very time-consuming and painful process without automation. Using our APIs, we can quickly and efficiently onboard thousands of merchants at a time through our complete payment facilitator interface. Through our API your sub merchants are onboarded and ready to process instantly once they click ACCEPT on the Terms and Conditions documents which will be emailed to them. We also have a team of in-house expert sales and customer support specialists to assist any merchants by phone who need extra help understanding the Terms and Conditions and accepting them to start processing. We know through working with developers that onboarding and getting merchants up and processing is the biggest stumbling block to any successful integration, so our solution includes a batch onboarding interface along with a customized customer service experience to ensure an A-rated experience across the board.
Last week we sent out notifications to all our merchants about a required terminal software update to ensure all terminals moving forward can accept MasterCard’s® new series of cards that start with a ‘2’ BIN (Bank Identification Number). MasterCard® has announced that it is creating a new BIN (Bank Identification Number) range for MasterCard®, which will effectively double the number of available MasterCard® credit cards worldwide. This will enable growth in card products as well as accommodate the need for new card numbers made necessary for card brand payment tokens when cardholders load a payment card into a digital wallet on their personal digital device (e.g., mobile phone, tablet, etc.).
The payments space is complex; there are so many routes to set up electronic payments acceptance it could make your head spin. And the end-all goal is automation while maintaining control and security. Everyone is looking for a way to fully sync the payments cycle from swiping or keying in a card to recording the transaction in a bookkeeping system to shooting out a receipt to the customer. Therefore, creating a fully automated and easy payments life cycle.
