Q. What is ‘semi-integrated’ payment processing?
A. Semi-integration is a measure that ensures separation between payment information transmission and other systems, such as a POS software application. The key benefit of a semi-integrated configuration is that no sensitive card account data is sent from the payment terminal to the POS application. The merchant’s customer interacts solely with the terminal to make payment, and the terminal manages all communication between the terminal and the payment processor. As a result, the merchant does not need to touch the customer’s payment card. Once the transaction is processed using the payment terminal, only non-confidential receipt/authorization data is returned from the payment terminal to the POS application.
Q. What are the fees for credit card processing?
A. MicroBiz is not a credit card processor, so any fees and rates will be part of the discussion with the credit card processor that you decide to use with MicroBiz. The processors above use a third party payment gateway to connect with MicroBiz Cloud, so your processor may bill you for these gateway costs as an addition charge in your monthly processing statement, or your processor may include the gateway costs in your overall processing fees. Please clarify this directly with your processor.
Q. Can I use my existing payment processing hardware?
A. EMV standards for integrated processing require a credit card terminal with a chip reader that is both: (1) certified with your payment processor, and (2) supported by your POS software provider. So unless you have a terminal supported by a processor above, you will likely need to buy a new EMV credit card terminal. Traditional credit card swipes are not EMV compliant, and are no longer supported by MicroBiz on a semi-integrated basis. Please contact MicroBiz Sales for more information.
Q. Can I use MicroBiz with a standalone credit card terminal?
A. Yes, you can use a standalone credit card processing terminal with MicroBiz. Processing confirmation information can be manually entered into the POS transaction record.
Q. Is MicroBiz Cloud PCI Compliant?
A. Using MicroBiz with semi-integrated payments will keep you out of scope of any PCI compliance requirements. All the communication containing sensitive card information is transmitted only between the secure payment terminal managed by the payment processor and the payment processor’s secure servers. These communications are not transmitted by or through the MicroBiz application. Payment card data is only captured and transmitted by the payment terminal that you purchase separately from your selected payment processor. No payment card information is ever read, transmitted or retained by MicroBiz. Therefore you will not be subject to expensive and time consuming PCI certifications because of the MicroBiz POS application.
Q. Does MicroBiz Share Any Personal Identifiable Information (PII) with its Processing Partners?
A. MicroBiz does not send or exchange PII (Personal Identifiable Information) of a merchant’s customers with its processing partners. The communications with processing partners during a semi-integrated payment card transaction is generally limited the transaction amount and a prompt message sent to the payment terminal and a secure ‘token’ containing the transaction authorization data captured back from the terminal. This token does not contain any customer PII data.
