Some of our merchants prefer to process
their credit card sales via their computer instead of using an electronic
terminal. If you are considering going the software route then look
no further, because Credit Card Processing Services is an authorized
direct reseller for all of the major credit card software manufacturers.
How Does Software Work?
Basically, credit card processing software works the same as any
other off-the-shelf software you might have already installed on
your computer. You will be shipped either a floppy disk or a CD-ROM
which you will install on your computer with directions which are
included. CCPS will provide you with a sheet with all of the necessary
setup information specific to your merchant account and processor.
During the install each manufacturer will require you to call or
dial in for a validation or security code to activate the software
(That is why you should be careful of some companies on the Internet
who sell you discounted software which cannot be activated for use).
CCPS always pays for you to have free tech support from the manufacturer
for at least 30 days from the time of activation.
Once installed you simply click on the software icon on your desktop
and you are ready to manually key in your sales and transmit them
to your processor via your computer's dialup modem or via IP connectivity
for authorization. Separate click-on screens allow you to perform
all of the usual functions of a terminal including sales, refunds,
voids, post authorizations and settlement. You can even use your
computer's laser or inkjet printer to print customer receipts or
various management reports. All of the software we sell have the
latest version to permit all of the information required by the
credit card companies including, of course Address Verification
the new fraud prevention tool known as CVV2.
If you want the ability to swipe cards from your computer we will
gladly order the magnetic stripe reader (like the one in the upper
left corner of this page) you need for your type of computer. Magnetic
stripe readers cost approximately $150.00 depending on the type
that you need.
There are several great options when it comes to ordering credit
card software. The one which we recommend most often is PC Charge
Pro. We have selected this software as our top choice because we
believe that it is the most feature rich credit card processing
software on the market today and is fully upgradeable when any major
