Plug-in by popular demand

Product: Payment Gateway Plug-in
Company: Comstar Interactive

Comstar Interactive announced the release of the Comstar Payment Gateway Plug-in, which integrates into QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier and QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions for versions 2005 and 2006.

The plug-in will enable merchants, using their existing processor, to process credit card payments directly from their QuickBooks interface. The software will allow ISOs the ability to retain ownership of merchants already using QuickBooks.

The plug-in will help merchants manage their businesses more efficiently. It gives them the ability to:

  • Process payments directly from their QuickBooks interface through the Comstar Payment Gateway (CPG)
  • Import wireless transactions from the CPG into QuickBooks
  • Process sales, returns and voids, automatically creating and applying payments to invoices
  • Process through any front end that Comstar supports, including First Data Corp.'s Concord/Buypass, First Data Omaha, Chase Paymentech Solutions, Global Payments Inc., and TSYS Acquiring Solutions (formerly Vital).
Comstar developed the plug-in due to requests from ISOs. An estimated 3 million small businesses used QuickBooks in 2001, according to Comstar.

Merchants using QuickBooks will now be able to process payments via credit cards directly from the plug-in, according to Comstar's Chief Financial Officer James P. Dugan.

ISOs can set pricing. Comstar will continue to do the billing and collection, remitting 100% of the commission to the ISO.
