A payment plug-in quick as a hare

Product: Skipjack Payment Plug-in

Like a jack rabbit hopping from hole to hole, the Skipjack Payment Plug-in enables QuickBooks users to process credit, debit and PIN debit card payments, and then automatically post the payments to QuickBooks.

A product of Skipjack Financial Services Inc., the plug-in lets users key or swipe credit cards from within the QuickBooks application itself, which can enable real-time payments and eliminate time consuming manual reconciliation caused by nonintegrated payment solutions. The plug-in supports both card swipe devices and receipt printers for card present, face-to-face transactions.

The product features PIN debit support, a "click and pay" interface and data support to aid in customer inquiries. It has an automatic payment error correction utility for transaction recovery due to hardware failure. And it has optional fraud prevention tools, such as Address Verification Service for U.S. cardholders.

Powered by the Skipjack Transaction Network, the plug-in allows the merchant access to Skipjack's arsenal of payment management and reporting tools, which gives the merchant the ability to void, refund and reauthorize a payment for a different amount and generate a variety of reports to locate a specific payment or reconcile bank deposits.

With the plug-in merchants can automatically delete a payment reference if that payment is canceled. It can generate a customer or merchant e-mail receipt and it has printer support for hard copy receipts. It also has a stand-alone virtual POS mode for payments that are not generated by Quickbooks.

Designed to improve the process of accepting payments for all major card brands and types (including Canada's Interac PIN-based debit cards), Skipjack works for brick-and-mortar retailers, MO/TO operations and Internet-based stores. The plug-in is available to acquirers, ISOs and merchant level salespeople through Skipjack's reseller channel.

The Skipjack Payment Plug-in currently supports these QuickBooks versions: QuickBooks Professional (USA Version) 2005, 2006, 2007; QuickBooks Professional (Canadian Version) 2006, 2007; QuickBooks Premier (USA Version) 2005, 2006, 2007; QuickBooks Premier (Canadian Version) 2006, 2007.
