I tagged along with our CEO, Ralph Dangelmaier and Head of Business Development, Jeff Coppolo, to some meetings last week in Silicon Valley, aka “the heart of technology.” These companies are hot and growing faster than Katy Perry’s Twitter followers, but for all of the incredible technology talent, people are always shocked when they realize their payments systems are not as functional as they think.
We are pleased to announce our newest customer, Sensibo! Sensibo makes one of the smartest air conditioning systems out there today, and we are thrilled to be chosen as their global payment gateway.

This adds to our already robust system of fraud prevention to help you protect your revenue, defend your reputation and increase payment conversions.
Last week we had fun in the sun attending, exhibiting and speaking at the 4th Annual Card Not Present Expo (CNP Expo) in Orlando, Florida. We were happy to break out our sunscreen after this awful winter, and we were not alone – there were nearly 1000 attendees at the show! We networked, learned, and discussed all things related to payments, and had a few margaritas together. For those of you that missed the fun, we wanted to give you a Top Five list of the most important things we learned down at the show David Letterman style (RIP late night).
We have some exciting news! As you may know, this week we are at the CNP Expo in Orlando, FL. Every year, the CNP Expo holds an awards ceremony honoring the companies, programs and solutions that have distinguished themselves in the card-not-present space during the past year. The winners were announced today at the show and we are VERY happy to announce that our Alternative Payment Solution & Subscription Billing Program have both earned a Customer Choice Award and the latter has been awarded Best-in-Category as well at the 4th Annual Card Not Present (CNP) Awards!!
Ready or not, EMV is coming to the United States. Most people in the industry acknowledge that there’s no turning back now. The October 2015 liability shift is a short 6 months away.
If you accept credit cards online, you’ve probably been told to brace yourself for a tidal wave of fraud. “EMV locks down the point of sale,” the argument goes. “Fraudsters will be able to use stolen card numbers only for online purchases. Head for the hills eCommerce merchants!”
As a payment gateway company, we are all too familiar with the struggles of creating an eCommerce checkout - and that is why we make it our mission to reverse that struggle for both merchants and customers!

Spring Cleaning is almost over! (*gasp*) How are your subscription services looking? While the last couple weeks have been about recycling, this week is about flexibility - because how else are you going to clean the cobwebs out from the space behind the washer and dryer? (Not that easily). Flexibility is huge for a company, especially when integrating a subscription model, because if your customers don’t have many options to try your product, the likelihood is that they won’t try it at all.
