Welcome to Sekure Merchant Services Business Resource Blog
Sekure Merchant Solutions is excited to announce new functionalities for Payanywhere and Payments Hub—online payment of invoices with Apple Pay. In a year that has been defined by seismic retail shifts, including record uptake of ecommerce and contactless payments, merchants now have another tool in their arsenal to accept easy and secure zero-contact payments.
What is a virtual terminal? A virtual terminal—as opposed to a physical POS terminal—is a software application that allows merchants to accept payments in the absence of the actual card. These transactions are commonly referred to as “card-not-present” (CNP) transactions. Virtual terminals transform computers, smartphones, and tablets into a POS and enable brick-and-mortar and ecommerce businesses to accept credit card payments over the phone, through the mail, or online. All you need is an internet and data connection, and you’re good to go—no POS hardware required.
