Chase Paymentech, the world's largest merchant acquirer and premier provider of payments processing services, announced today that it will provide credit card payment processing to small businesses via Windows Vista Business operating system, which went on sale today.
Chase Paymentech's integration into Windows Vista Business provides a significant advantage for small and medium-sized businesses, eliminating the need to buy payment software or credit card terminals in order to accept payments.
Chase Paymentech's payments processing solution is part of the Payments as a Secure Service (PASS) Consortium's PASS Commerce Center, which is built into the Windows Vista Business operating system. PASS Commerce Center allows small businesses to instantly turn their business computer into an integrated point-of-sale tool and to manage business transactions directly from their desktop. Chase Paymentech can then easily upgrade merchants with value-added services or new payment types as they become available, without the need to buy additional software or hardware.
Providing unprecedented access to the user-friendly credit card processing interface, Windows Vista Business allows businesses of any size to process payments via Chase Paymentech's network. The operating system provides a gadget for easy access to PASS Commerce Center directly from the desktop, putting payment processing solutions right at the business customer's fingertips.
"Chase Paymentech is pleased to be a part of Windows Vista Business launch, simplifying access to an essential business function for small businesses," said Mike Duffy, President and CEO of Chase Paymentech. "Our participation with the PASS Consortium has enabled us to join forces with strategic partners whose products complement our service offerings. The result is a powerful financial management tool that small businesses can use to enhance their cash flow and drive future growth."
More than 50 percent of small businesses fail in the first year, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration. Success for a small business often depends upon their ability to effectively manage finances and to provide their customers with payment choice. Chase Paymentech's ongoing commitment to small business includes offering payment solutions that provide long-term success.
