Merchant Warehouse Adds Web and Mobile Functionality to Platform

March 25, 2011

Merchant Warehouse, a Boston-based provider of merchant accounts and credit card processing solutions, recently launched mobile and web versions of its MerchantWARE TransPort processing platform. The company said TransPort.Mobile and TransPort.Web offer the same versatility as the original TransPort with enhanced functionality and enhanced security features. TransPort enables POS developers to remove the card processing function entirely from their software through a “transaction portal” and tokenization. The company said this is especially important for mobile payment solutions since the PCI Council has officially opted to not certify mobile applications in the near future. “During this past holiday shopping period, consumers spent $30 billion, both over the Web and through their mobile devices,” said Henry Helgeson, co-CEO of Merchant Warehouse. “As consumers gravitate toward mobile payments and e-commerce shopping, the need for a secure and certified online payment solution becomes more obvious. TransPort.Web and TransPort.Mobile enable developers to have a secure, feature-rich payment platform that protects card data. It is also customizable so their merchants can extend their brand right to their client.”
