“Tokenization is the process of replacing sensitive data with unique identification symbols that retain all the essential information about the data without compromising its security”.

NOTE: The Fast Charge Payment Gateway offers FREE Tokenization Services for Payment Gateway Merchants using The Fast Charge Payment Gateway!

Payment card industry (PCI) standards do not allow full credit card or debit card numbers to be stored on a retailer’s credit card terminal, point-of-sale (POS) terminal, on its website, e-commerce system, or in its databases after a transaction. To be PCI compliant, merchants must install expensive end-to-end encryption systems or outsource their payment processing to a service provider who provides a “tokenization option.” The service provider handles the issuance of the token value and bears the responsibility for keeping the cardholder data locked down.

How does Tokenization work?

Tokens have no meaning by themselves and are useless to criminals if your company’s system is compromised in any way.

For example:

An actual card number 4133 9584 5472 6874 becomes the token value BADTAEGHV234AUD56874. Format emulating options are also available.

Because it is not “cardholder data,” a token can be safely transmitted through your network between various applications, databases and business processes while the sensitive data is securely stored and encrypted in the Fast Charge Payment Gateway.

The Fast Charge FREE Tokenization Service (Stored Profile) feature allows the merchant to process credit cards, debit cards and ACH transactions without the need to store sensitive and confidential customer information. Storing sensitive information requires secure servers, in addition to various certifications, and leaves you open to hackers. The User Profile will make the transaction experience safer for the merchant and easier for the customer.

Features include the ability to:

  1. Store Profile Transaction Types.
  2. Create and Store a Profile.
  3. Process a Transaction Using the Stored Profile.
  4. Delete a Stored Profile.
  5. Update the Stored Profile.
  6. Perform Pre-Authorizations, Sales and Capture.
  7. Issue Credits using the Stored Profile.
  8. Retrieve transaction results of the last transaction.

Depending on the implementation of a tokenization solution, tokens used within merchant systems and applications may not need the same level of security protection. Storing tokens instead of account numbers is one alternative that can help to reduce the amount of cardholder data in the environment, potentially reducing the merchant’s effort to implement PCI requirements.

The following key principles relate to the use of tokenization:

Tokenization solutions do not eliminate the need to maintain and validate PCI compliance, but they may simplify a merchant’s validation efforts by reducing the number of system components for which PCI DSS requirements apply.

Tokenization systems and processes must be protected with strong security controls and monitoring to ensure the continued effectiveness of those controls.

What are some examples of tokenization being used?

Google Wallet, Apple Pay, Android Pay, Amazon and PayPal all use tokenization to store customer payment cards for future transactions.

Tokenization can be implemented in isolation or in concert with data field encryption to help merchants eliminate the need to store sensitive cardholder data after authorization. Entities that properly implement and execute a tokenization process to support their payment functions may be able to reduce the scope, risks and costs associated with ongoing compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

How Tokenization Works

Tokenization defines a process through which PAN data is replaced with a surrogate value known as a “token.” The security of an individual token relies on properties of uniqueness and the infeasibility to determine the original PAN knowing only the surrogate value. As a reference or surrogate value for the original PAN, a token can be used freely by systems and applications within a merchant environment.

Where properly implemented, tokenization allows merchants to limit the storage of cardholder data to within the tokenization system, potentially simplifying an entity’s assessment against the PCI DSS. As a reference or surrogate value for the original PAN, a token can be us ed by systems and applications within a merchant environment without having to consider the security implications associated with the use of cardholder data.

For credit card and debit card declines retail swiped transactions and e-commerce transactions may be treated differently at the processing network level.

Fast Charge will always return a standardized response code for each of your transactions. For e-commerce or card not, present transactions there are always 3 decline codes. Fast Charge will return the decline code with whatever description the card holder’s Bank returns.

To determine the reason for a declined transaction the following are the three decline codes for e-commerce transactions:

The first two numbers in the response code tells us where the decline comes from:

07 or 08: This decline is issued from the customer’s Bank

Example: DECLINED:0700240079

Example: DECLINED:0700560029 Declined: Call Processing Network

Note: The decline response may or may not have a reason passed back with the response.  If there is no description passed back the customer will have to contact their issuing Bank for the reason they declined it.

11: A decline code that begins with “1” is issued by Fast Charge

Example: DECLINED:1101920001 “Invalid Expiration Date”:

Example: DECLINED:1103280308 “Address Does Not Match”

Note: This transaction has a reason passed back by the issuing Bank as “Invalid Expiration Date”.

30: A decline code that begins with “3” is issued by Fast Charge and is a system failure.

Example: Declined: 308741209 “Call fast Charge Support”

The retail response codes below “DO Not Always” apply to e-commerce transactions so please keep this in mind when determining the reason for a decline. We will try to match the retail response with e-commerce transactions, but we have found that these can be inaccurate some of the time!

Retail Terminal Decline Codes:

The Fast Charge Payment Gateway automatically includes a FREE basic web link shopping cart wizard option with each gateway license. Sample Free Web Link Hosted Shopping Cart wizard demo

Fast Charge Web Link works in one of two ways: It either captures the necessary customer information (name, credit card number, etc.) from a merchant’s own secure transaction page, or it displays a customizable transaction page hosted on a Fast Charge secure server, for the customer to fill out.

The customer’s information is encrypted using 40- or 128-bit Secure Socket Layer technology and sent to a Fast Charge transaction server. The server sends the data through the authorization network to the appropriate card issuer’s bank, using a secure, proprietary connection.

When the authorization process is complete — this takes around five seconds — the customer receives an approval or decline response and the Fast Charge server stores the transaction. Transactions are automatically settled each day and are typically funded within two to three business days.

The simplest method for integrating with our gateway is by collecting consumer data via an HTML form and submitting the transaction to the gateway via an HTTPS Post. This form shows you all the data fields that can be collected for a credit card transaction. This form is also a good starting point if you are going to use one of the other integration methods because it demonstrates the data fields that will be required regardless of the method used to connect to the gateway. Use this test form to familiarize yourself with the Fast Charge gateway, then implement the integration that best fits your application. Note: Hosting your own payment form requires that you install an SSL certificate on your server to ensure that card data transmissions are secure.

The Fast Charge payment gateway supports processing of automated (scheduled) recurring payments. Setting up a new recurring payment requires just a few fields (in addition to the standard consumer payment information). Once the transaction information is sent to Fast Charge, the system will automatically take care of all future payments based on start date, end date and payment period (e.g. weekly, monthly, twice-yearly, etc.). This sample HTML form demonstrates how to submit a transaction to the payment gateway that will be automatically billed for the amount and frequency you specify

The Fast Charge payment gateway offers a simple hosted shopping cart solution that can be easily incorporated into an existing web site. This option is for merchants who do not have their own shopping cart, or do not want to go through the complexity or expense of installing a secure certificate (SSL) on their web site. This sample page shows several ways of displaying a “Buy It” link on your web site. Clicking on any of the payment buttons will transfer you to our secure check-out screen to complete the check-out and payment steps. Payment methods, shipping options, and tax calculations are all configurable within the Online Merchant Center. For example, you can configure taxes for individual states. You can also configure various shipping charges for domestic, international and premium rates such as USPS, FedEx, and UPS. To configure your tax and shipping criteria, use the Tax and Shipping Manager sections within Online Merchant Center under the Merchant Configuration Menu. For detailed instructions, refer to the Online Commerce Suite Integration Guide.

The Fast Charge Membership system allows merchants to sell and maintain memberships or subscriptions to their website and/or organization. The signup page consumers use to purchase the subscription can be hosted on your site, or you can use our customizable secure hosted signup page. This link displays a sample using our secure hosted site. The subscription plans, payment types, and color scheme are all configurable using the Membership menu options within the Online Merchant Center. For detailed instructions, refer to the Online Commerce Suite Membership Guide. Membership services are an add-on product, and you may be charged additional fees. Contact your reseller or customer service for more information.

Merchants can check the status of transactions or run reports on past activity by going to the Fast Charge Web site and logging on to their own password-protected Fast Charge site. Online businesses also can use the Fast Charge Virtual Terminal to enter payment information manually if customers prefer to call in their credit card information.

Linking a merchant’s Web site to the Fast Charge Fast Charge Web Link system is simple. The merchant’s Web site designer or developer simply inserts a few lines of HTML code (which we provide) onto the transaction page. Fast Charge supports most available shopping cart software, so it integrates easily with most e-commerce solutions.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Locate the Authorize.Net Aim Payment Module in your shopping cart and change the POST TO™ URL FROM: https://secure.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll TO: https://trans.secure-fastcharge.com/cgi-bin/authorize.cgiDepending on the shopping cart and its payment module you may need to change the post to URL in 1,2 or 3 places. It’s best to find the AIM payment module and then change it everywhere in this file. Here’s a tip, do a search in the AIM file for “. dllâ€? to help you find the Authorize.net URLs to replace with the emulator URL.

Admin Settings:

Login to your Admin Panel and open the “Payment Methods” setting for Authorize net. If it gives you a choice select the AIM module because this will allow customers to stay on your site when they purchase from you. Once you get to the settings you can enter the following information:

API Login ID: This is your fast charge Account ID (FCXXX)

Transaction Key: This is your Fast charge “Merchant Pin”

Mode: We always suggest “Live Mode or Production Mode”

Gateway URL: If you have this option enter https://trans.secure-fastcharge.com/cgi-bin/authorize.cgi

MD5 Hash: We now ignore this, but you can enter “7gt77lyst555r7677yt”

Authorize or Capture: We recommend you select Authorize and Capture

Oscommerce is the original open source shopping cart and has 60,000 custom addons developed by users. We used to recommend Oscommerce until we received so much good feedback about Zen cart. The difference between oscommerce and Zen cart is that Zen cart comes with many bells and whistles already installed. Oscommerce has more addons but most of them require advanced coding which the average merchant has trouble with.

VirtueMart is a very “hot” Open Source E-Commerce solution to be used together with a Content Management System (CMS) called Joomla! Joomla! and VirtueMart are written in PHP and can be used in typical PHP/MySQL environments. VirtueMart is what the pros use instead of WordPress for their content delivery and database management. To use the Fast charge Payment Gateway with Virtuemart/Joomla there are several options. There is a free module on the Virtuemart support forum, a paid “one click” module for a small fee and the option to use the authnet emulator.

Magento is a “free to install” cart that has many features available and is used by many very large companies. It started as an open source shopping cart that has evolved into a pay as you go cart. If a merchant downloads or installs Magento they need to have advanced programming skills or be prepared to pay them for help. We only recommend them because their order management system for larger companies highly recommended by direct marketing, direct mail and very large companies. Magento has the ability receive direct feeds from UPS or FedEx for package tracking and returns etc.
