Manage Your Staff's Access To Customer Data With PayTrace

Create as many log-in profiles as you need and grant each user permissions on a need-to-know basis. Additionally, make sure only the proper people are accessing your data with multi-factor authentication log-ins. You may further lock down access by creating Internet Protocol (IP) Address rules to limit access to one or more computers. You may also track transactions within the software by user, allowing effortless follow-up when needed.

Use PayTrace To Eliminate The Need To Touch Payment Data

Utilize one of PayTraceís Shopping Carts or the API Secure Checkout to allow your customers to enter their own payment information. Customer entered payment information may be used to process a real-time transaction and/or stored to process future repeat transactions. This functionality allows your staff to process payments without ever seeing or touching the customerís sensitive data. In addition, fraud prevention tools such as Address Verification System (AVS) and Card Security Code (CSC/CVV) are available to help prevent fraudulent payments.
