Virtual Terminal Credit Card Processing
The word “virtual”, as it’s most often used today, means “not real” or “imaginary”. For many people, virtual has become synonymous with the Internet. A virtual terminal uses the Internet to provide credit card processing that’s quick, efficient, cost effective and as real as the processing provided by a countertop terminal.
With the right merchant account, retailers and service providers can use a virtual terminal to process payment cards from any computer or mobile device with Internet access, including laptops, smartphones and tablets. For example, Transaction Express™ from Merchant Express® is a web-based electronic payment gateway that offers, among other features, a virtual terminal that can seamlessly verify, document and process all major credit cards and signature debit cards.
Virtual terminal credit card processing can benefit a variety of businesses, including diversified merchants, merchants with multiple locations, mobile merchants and merchants who are planning to expand their business.
