Software for streamlined processing
Like it or not, most of the computers in the business world run on Microsoft Corp. operating systems and its accompanying software programs. Merchants who employ Microsoft Retail Management System (RMS) as their POS software for electronic payments can now streamline transaction processing and lower costs with NitroSell's WebStore for e-commerce.
WebStore is software that integrates into Microsoft RMS to allow e-payments to be processed directly with processors.
According to a NitroSell spokesperson, the software has been tailored to link up with 15 different processors to date, including Durango, Colo.-based Mercury Payment Systems LLC and Atlanta-headquartered Global Payments Inc.
According to Mercury, its partnership with NitroSell eliminates the need for e-merchants to connect to third party processing gateways, and subsequently eliminates the fees associated with that hook up and the resulting technical support hassles.
"The NitroSell-Mercury integration enables e-commerce transactions to be sent directly to Mercury for real-time authorization," said Dominic Frazer, Director of Sales and Marketing for NitroSell.
Considered a brick-and-click payment processing solution in its entirety, the NitroSell-Mercury combination grants e-commerce merchants access to Mercury's value added services, including free gift card processing - a hard service to find for Web-based payments, according to Mercury.
Equally, Nitrosell connects merchants directly to Global Payments' recently unveiled Global Transport gateway that simplifies and speeds integration with merchants' varied POS systems.
"The high-speed, secure connection that we have with Global Payments is a significant advantage to our clients," Frazer said. "The new integrated online payment solution means that our customers can now process card payments more quickly and track them online."
NitroSell's software-as-a-service flexibility may make it an attractive value added option for ISOs and MLSs to offer merchants.
NitroSell has its United States headquarters in Boston. It was certified a Microsoft Gold Standard partner in January 2008.
