Mercury Payment Systems has launched MercuryActivate, a new API for POS system developers to capture merchant enrollments online for Mercury payment processing.
Using MercuryActivate, merchant can speed up enrollment processes, which helps developers quickly onboard new merchants for payment processing.
“Our developer community told us this API would be a positive addition to our service,” said John Berkley, SVP of Product for Mercury. “We’re pleased to deliver this product and provide a hands-off merchant enrollment system to expand market opportunities for our business partners.”
Developers have access to a variety of features via MercuryActivate including:
“MercuryActivate has enabled Booker to implement real-time merchant provisioning directly into our platform,” said Daniel Lizio-Katzen, Co-Founder and COO of Booker Software, an independent software provider. “When our customers subscribe to Booker, they can apply for credit card processing without ever leaving the application — providing them with the ability to accept credit card payments the same day. Implementing MercuryActivate has enabled Booker to improve the overall enrollment experience, which benefits our company and the service oriented retailers that utilize our product.”
In the near future, POS resellers will have access to MercuryActivate so they can embed the merchant form into their web properties.
