Merchant Accounts

Merchants, from the smallest on-line storefront to a large "brick and mortar" retailer, who accept and process credit cards need a Merchant Account. A merchant account enables merchants to accept and clear credit card transactions.

In the case of an Internet merchant, two options exist. If the merchant already has a "brick and mortar" business, he or she may be able to use their existing credit card processing method to handle Internet transactions. If the merchant wants to process credit cards in real time or is a new merchant, then he or she needs to apply for a new Internet enabled merchant.

Even though electronic business is booming, merchants dealing with the unseen customer still have a difficult time being accepted by banks. Start-ups and certain types of commerce are categorically denied access to merchant accounts by most financial institutions.

Through an arrangement with Northern Trust Merchant Services, a First Data alliance, we can provide your business with Merchant Accounts for accepting VISA, MasterCard, and other card types via your website! In as little as 24 hours, Northern Trust Merchant Services can have your application approved and e-commerce enable your business for real time transaction processing.

Northern Trust Merchant Services includes transaction processing bundled with approved Merchant Accounts for an all-in-one package.


Transaction Processing

HgdHositng.Com works with Northern Trust Merchant Services, a First Data alliance, to provide real-time transaction processing to web merchants via SurePay, First Data�s payment gateway.

The easiest process to integrate into an existing business is an off-line authorization and settlement process. For more advanced web merchants who are processing more than 50 transactions per month, real time credit card authorization becomes economical.

Linking to a payment gateway such as SurePay, generates an authorization request when the customer places an order which can then be authorized in real time, without any intervention by the merchant. Settlement occurs at the time of fulfillment by the merchant.

Already Have a Merchant Account?

Our eCorp and ePro e-commerce plans support real-time transactions and settlement. If you would like to use online payment processing and you already have Merchant Account, both of these plans are SurePay enabled at no additional cost.

Need a Merchant Account?

If your current merchant account can not be used for online commerce or you require a Merchant Account for your business, we recommend you use Northern Trust Merchant Services as your merchant account and payment processing provider.

Northern Trust Merchant Services, a First Data alliance, offers world class payment processing capabilities not to mention industry leading customer service. Being aligned with the world�s largest backend payment processor brings the benefits of size and scale to merchants that others cannot. With cutting edge monitoring tools backed by extensive disaster recovery plans, Northern Trust Merchant Services can ensure that from the time of authorization to the time of settlement, your transactions will be processed in a timely, effective manner.

Northern Trust Merchant Services and the SurePay payment gateway may be added to either the eCorp or ePro 3 e-commerce plans, for as little as $99.95USD per month. HgdHositng.Com customers receive a $150USD savings on the setup fees for Northern Trust Merchant Services when they order our turnkey e-commerce hgdhosting package, paying a reduced fee of $150 to setup a merchant account with Northern Trust Merchant Services!
