The U.S. company’s Lightning Payments™ solution offers merchants significant savings in processing fees and a host of new payment tools, all within their existing QuickBooks software.
Leading U.S. financial technology company, TouchSuite, announced that it now offers itsQuickBooks®-integrated payment solution, Lightning Payments, to the Canadian market, creating the first and only processing alternative for the county’s QuickBooks’ software and Point of Sale users. Lightning Payments’ highly advanced, integrated payment technology eliminates the hassle of double data entry for those seeking a more affordable payment processor than QuickBooks’ inherent solution.
“After successfully launching Lightning Payments in the U.S., we really couldn’t wait until the day when we could introduce the solution to the Canadian marketplace, where there are currently no other alternative processing tools for QuickBooks users,” said TouchSuite founder and CEO Sam Zietz. “With one seamless system, Canada’s small business owners can now synchronize their entire financial and accounting process without the forced hand of high processing rates.”
Once acquired, Lightning Payments appears automatically within the QuickBooks interface and features a full line of additional payment-related toolsto enhance and expand the merchant’s transactional capabilities. Additionally, Lightning offers mobile POS access, and e-commerce capabilities. The cutting-edge payment solution features superior credit card encryption, ensuring trustworthy consumer security, 100% PCI compliance, and 99.99999% uptime (5X9). Users also receive access to a standard virtual terminal application, which can be accessed remotely and process credit, debit and gift transactions with the click of a button.
Lightning’s direct data core integration allows QuickBooks software and Point of Sale users to receive payments natively within the respective products, without the requirement of a peripheral unit or terminal. With this new development, TouchSuite becomes the first outside processors in Canada with a payment interface integrated within QuickBooks product lineup.
