Some things are worth the wait! We are happy to post that the latest and greatest TrustCommerce Developer’s Guide 4.0 is now available for download within the TC Vault in PDF format. This new version comes with many improvements and several new chapters and sections. This document began as a revision to the existing TCLink Developer’s Guide, but evolved into a more comprehensive TrustCommerce Developer’s Guide.

PCI Compliance for Small Merchants

Small businesses are the heart and soul of the U.S. economy. From local mom and pop shops to innovative web start ups, we rely on these merchants daily for goods and services. In the payments world, small businesses are referred to as Level 4 merchants, those processing less than 20,000 e-commerce transactions annually and up to 1 million transactions annually. There are more than 6 million Level 4 merchants in the U.S.

PCI compliance is a vital component of merchants overall, ongoing security program. However, Level 4 merchants have not always been well educated or encouraged by their acquiring bank to become compliant.

Deciphering Debit Card Processing

It is no secret that debit cards are a popular method for paying for goods and services. Customers use their bank ATM cards and check cards to pay for everything from a pack of gum at a gas station to monthly utility bills.

Debit card payments may soon take over credit card transactions! There were 507 million total debit cards in circulation in U.S. at the end of 2009. Debit payment transactions rose 17.1% to 6.38 billion, according to Visa and MasterCard.

Secure Payment Solutions that Come with a Guide

On my morning commute, lost in thought, I drove right past the office. Snapping out of it, I realized what I’d done, took a right turn and began my detour back to the office.  Having never gone this route, I saw buildings and roads I’d never seen before, discovering better paths for future trips.
Seeing things in a new light makes me think about the TrustCommerce professional services team. What I love about our team is how they look at a project from every angle – upside down, backwards, and sideways before arriving at a clear plan for reaching an objective. Our team has lead projects and implementations for leading organizations in key vertical markets and apply that unique knowledge to every project.
