Quick Transactions Authorisation
With this service, merchants can benefit by limiting the unpleasant user experience that can be caused by denied transactions. This is done by using computerised information made by WePay’s manual evaluations, and merchants can enable transaction approvals.
With this solution, merchants can use a card reader to accept payments both online and in-person.
You can get your products (card readers and terminals) up and running quickly with a single software development kit (SDK) and modular RESTful application programming interfaces (APIs), which will save your programmers time and reduce the expenses of both operations and licensing. Card Present Solutions from WePay are compatible with a wide range of pre-certified hardware from third parties, allowing them to serve a diverse range of applications.
The graphic that is now displayed above tells us which devices are compatible with Card Present and what audience the devices are designed for.
During the processing of each credit transaction, a series of queries and instructions are carried out behind the scenes along two different channels.
- Initially, card and transaction information is sent to the bank that issued the card to gain approval for the payment, and then the notice that the approval was received is sent back.
- Second, when approval has been given, a new procedure is initiated for the money transfer.
- Lastly, the money is sent to the recipient.
