CUSTOMER SERVICE FAQ’s

Some common questions our customers have:

What is batching out?
The process by which the merchant and cardholder’s banks exchange transaction data, resulting in the depositing of funds into your specified bank account.

How do I do it?
There are two methods of batching. Most Card Payment Solutions terminals are set to Auto Batch for your convenience. Auto batching will occur at 1 am each morning and will include a batch report for that day. Second, you can batch any time throughout the day manually with a touch of one key.

What if I don’t?
Your terminal will be set to Auto Batch, but in the event the terminal does not batch, the display on your terminal will read “Need To Batch”, and you can manually batch.

Can I pre verify funds on a customers card?
Yes. You can verify funds on a customer’s credit card. Those funds will be reserved for you until, at a later date, you deposit those held funds into your account.

How do I link my payment gateway?
Can I use Cobol or Perl with this system? Any programming language is compatible; we do most of the extensive programming so you don’t have to. If you cannot run CGI, all you need to do is create your code and direct your payment variable information to our servers.

What about technical support?
Card Payment Solutions has a team of trained technicians ready to assist you and answer any questions or concerns that might arise included as part of our service.

Can I put my account in test mode?
Both our Internet payment, gateway and terminals can easily be put into test mode. It’s a great way to practice the use of your terminal or test the web sites payment gateway configuration before you launch your site.

What comes with my equipment package?
Depending on your specific business you will receive a terminal, supplies to get you started, stickers for advertisement, support phone numbers, and card acceptance policy booklet.

How do I return money?
To do a refund with a Card Payment Solutions terminal is very simple. The procedure is the same as a sale after you put your terminal in return mode by pressing the return key on the terminal display.

How do I do a void?
A void can be done the same day the transaction has been run before the batch has been closed. If you press void on the keypad the procedure will be the same as a sale.

Will I get a batch report?
Yes, your terminal will print a deposit report each night when it closes, and all internet payment gateways are set up to send you an email with each order and an end of day closing report.

How long until the money reaches my bank?
All terminal funds are deposited in 48 hours after the batch has been closed. Internet payment gateway accounts will take up to 5 days to reach your bank account

Do I get a Statement?
Yes, a monthly statement is generated that is detailed with your daily batches and all your rates and fees. You will receive this on a monthly basis.
