Processing Credit Cards Through an Internet Connection

The holiday season is just around the corner.  Are you ready for it?  One way to shorten the lines and handle the increased traffic in your retail store is to process credit cards through an Internet Gateway.

An Internet Gateway bridges your retail Point of Sale Software with the card/check payment processing network.  Transactions are processed faster than with a dial-up phone connection because the bridge stays open, continually connecting to your processors throughout the day.  You need just one Internet connection to connect all of your workstations, instead of a separate phone line for each workstation with a dial-up connection.

An Internet Gateway connection is easily set up, provides speed, convenience, improved reliability, and a higher level of security.  In addition, it improves your customers’ in-store experience by shortening the checkout lines. 

CounterPoint has CP Gateway for Internet processing.  CCS can help you set up a CP Gateway connection.  Call us for more details at 425-672-4806 or email us.  Don’t wait!  Now is the time to prepare for the upcoming holiday season!
