Credit and debit cards have overtaken cash as Britain’s main payment method; cards are now the preferred payment method in retail sales. With this trend set to continue, it’s critical that card transactions are processed as efficiently as possible.
By joining forces with a trusted payments partner, Worldpay from FIS and integrating its point of sale process from within its Autopart system, MAM Software provides payment processing solutions with card machines supporting the latest chip and PIN card technology, contactless cards and digital wallets.
The integration removes the need to have to manually enter the transaction amount into the card machine. Not only does this save time, it also prevents users from mis-typing values on the keypad and recording transactions incorrectly, effectively eliminating human error.
Working in conjunction with a card machine, users can process chip-and-pin and contactless payments directly from their point of sale. Users simply select the Worldpay option from the ‘method of payment’ screen and follow the on-screen prompts, which reflect those presented on the card machine.
Payments can be processed within the software’s ‘point of sale’, ‘sales order entry’ and ‘receipt of payment’ screens. Transaction identifiers are recorded in the database for reporting purposes and can be printed on the invoice if required.
“Our latest partnership with Worldpay is another great example of our commitment to providing our customers with the choices to have the right tools they need to run their business. By integrating card payment processing it helps our customers to improve their customer service levels by helping to speed up transaction processing, reduce keying errors along with providing users with access to competitive processing fees.” Explains James Mitchell, Managing Director UK & I, Kerridge Commercial Systems.
