In an increasingly complex environment of payments, we offer a wider range of tools and platforms to help you meet your payment integration objectives. In addition to our other payment solutions, we offer MercuryPay. Here’s what it does for your payment processing needs and how to get started.

 

What is MercuryPay?

 

MercuryPay is a highly scalable payment processing platform. To ensure your application integrates with this platform, you get access to the MercuryPay Integration Suite, which is a comprehensive set of integration methods, tools, and services. This suite’s integration capabilities help minimize the complexity involved in ensuring PA-DSS payment compliance and facilitates EMV card brand certifications.

 

As a flexible platform, MercuryPay offers multiple integration approaches, so you can find the one that fits your business type, target market, payment integration method, and operating system. You can also choose an approach that aligns with specific requirements for security measures.

 

The Benefits of Using MercuryPay

 

In addition to the ability to address numerous compliance issues related to payments and the customization features, there are other reasons why it’s beneficial to consider MercuryPay.

MercuryPay supports many industries and verticals, including retail and eCommerce, restaurant and lodging, automotive, healthcare, warehousing, and service-oriented businesses.

 

There are numerous toolkits available to you to create in-store, mobile, and eCommerce applications for a wide range of payment types that you can use in your business. Built on industry standards, there are many payment middleware solutions we offer that are available for testing in an integrated sandbox with simulators.

 

Here are some your options:

  • The dsiPDCX with the dsiEMVUS solution provides merchants with feature-rich payment options that use tokenization and end-to-end encryption for enhanced security. You can easily integrate additional hardware and features as well as provide EMV support for contact and contactless transactions. This payment middleware solution also allows for all types of payment acceptance, such as credit cards, PIN debit cards, EBT, FSA, and more.

 

  • Combining the reliability of Datacap Systems with the platform performance of MercuryPay, TranCloud is the ideal choice if you need to develop a payment integration process for accepting EMV-ready payments. Its payment and hardware hub can adapt to meet the needs of most point-of-sale (POS) providers. This particular payment middleware solution is optimized for tablet and browser-based applications that use HTTP POST in XML or JSON format.

 

  • HostedCheckout supports manual transactions for eCommerce by handling sensitive credit card data. Whether it’s from a merchant’s website, mobile device, or a POS system, online payment transactions are seamlessly handled by this hosted solution.

 

Getting Started with MercuryPay

 

To start enjoying the benefits offered by MercuryPay, your first step is to create a test account.  We have a range of production-simulated accounts that you can use to code, test, and certify your payment integration with the MercuryPay Processing Platform.

 

You’ll start with creating a test account by configuring the test server addresses that corresponds to your payment integration method.

 

Then, select a test MerchantID that fits your supported functionality. MerchantIDs are configured with specific processing functionality, such as E2E, Tokenization, both E2E and Tokenization, or neither.

The test accounts listed above are for general testing and available for use. If you are testing multiple products or are ready to certify your payment integration process, we can set-up personalized accounts for further validation.

 

You can also find information on Worldpay Integrated Payments Test Cards for card-present transaction testing.  Contact certification@vantiv.com if you want to get test cards and test equipment.
