Cyberattacks are an ever-growing concern in the U.S.—and not just among big companies. Small- and medium-sized businesses are beginning to realize that they, too, are vulnerable and need to make cybersecurity a top priority. Indeed, small businesses possess valuable information and, in most cases, lack the security of larger companies, thereby making them prime targets for nefarious characters.

Hidden fees. Exorbitant equipment-leasing fees. Payment gateway fees. High processing rates. Lackluster customer service. Sound familiar? Many business owners have likely considered switching payment providers at some point, but most don’t because they fear the process will be difficult and expensive. Likewise, many merchants think that switching providers means switching banks. Thankfully, this is not the case. As you’ll see, moving to a new payment provider is surprisingly simple.
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.
