I have called Vantiv and nobody can figure out how to create the account!
Hi folks. I ended up speaking with Lee on the phone about this yesterday. I think we determined the source of the confusion. The customer he is support has a mobile POS solution supported by Vantiv, and of course the merchant credentials are different than those required for the Woo Commerce gateway to Vantiv eCommerce. I believe Lee has managed to connect with a sales person at Vantiv. He has a workaround for now and will explore whether to get an eCommerce merchant account.
Lee, if you're still trying to get ECOM running for WooCommerce & Vantiv, there's an easy & free ECOM integration through Vantiv Integrated Payments that works with WooCommerce. You do still have to setup an ECOM account as Gordon notes, you can't re-use an existing account channel like MOTO or a B&M POS, but once it's setup as a direct integration that's pretty much it. I can connect you with some folks at Vantiv as well who can assist you further on this kind of setup.
Thanks for this George! I'd be interested in learning more about this also - I wasn't aware of this. Take care.
We have several Vantiv certified WooCommerce plugin variations:
We also have built a few one-off proof of concepts, like an SMS payment gateway, a WooCommerce integration that uses a MagTek bluetooth swiper to allow for CP swipe transactions through the WooCommerce platform, and we're currently working on an ACH gateway too. We've also been playing with a shortcode 'buy it now' type tool that integrates directly into Wordpress, without any need for WooCommerce.
We've also assisted with some other customizations for Merchants, such as a tokenized payment system that holds the card data until a few days before shipping and a woocommerce extension that assists with Revel integration - pushing order information from WooCommerce to kitchen printers at a Pizzeria.
We distribute many of our plugins for free and offer free installation and support for Merchants who don't have a third party developer available.
We have a propietary gateway for Woocommerce that is certified to Vantiv if you are interested.
