Forte Unveils Online Payment Platform

April 10, 2014

Forte Unveils Online Payment Platform Forte Payment Systems, a provider of online and mobile payment technology, yesterday unveiled an online payment platform that enables e-commerce merchants to accept eCheck payments in addition to traditional card payments. The Allen, Texas-based payment company said Forte Checkout “has been sculpted by developers, for developers.”

In addition to offering eCheck capability, the solution can be configured to operate in “e-wallet mode,” which lets shoppers save their address and payment information on a merchant’s site so they do not have to enter it during subsequent visits. The company said this empowers customer and saves merchants both time and money, as they don’t have to manage or update their customer’s payment information.

Forte, which launched the new solution at the ETA’s TRANSACT 14 event in Las Vegas, said the new platform offers merchants total control of the user experience, strong authentication tools and tokenization.
