MW Supports Cart66

MW Integrated with Cart66 – FINALLY!

It has definitely been a long time coming and an integration that has been requested by so many Australian merchants. Cart66 is an eCommerce plugin for the popular blogging software wordpress that enables merchants to “sell electronics, digital downloads, videos, music, web hosting, legal services, collect membership fees, and more.”Cart66

Over the past few months we have had an overwhelming number of requests to have the Merchant Warrior Payment Gateway integrated with the Cart66 plugin. The lack of support for an Australian payment processing option made the extremely flexible and popular Cart66 plugin unusable for many Australian merchants.

We feel extremely lucky to have been contacted by Dante Chichizola @dchichizola a senior web developer from Macintype Design who registered his interest in integrating the Merchant Warrior Payment Gateway into the Cart66 plugin.

Thanks to the efforts of Dante an Australian payment option finally exists for the Cart66 plugin! The plugin can be found at the Merchant Warrior Developer Zone or by clicking here.

We will be contacting the great team at Cart66 to have the plugin available with the professional version of the plugin. We understand they are extremely busy but do hope we manage to get this merged into their development cycle in time for their next release.

PCI DSS v2.0

logo-pci

Each year we have an onsite audit completed by our registered QSA (Securus Global) in order to ensure that all components of our payment platform including our business processes are PCI DSS compliant.

Tier 1 PCI DSS v2.0 – Certified!

In August 2010 the PCI SSC announced that the PCI DSS v2.0 would be published in October of 2010. A list of changes that have been made between PCI DSS v1.2 and PCI DSS v2.0 can be found here.

Thanks to the efforts of all staff we have been certified by Securus Global as a Tier 1 PCI DSS v2.0 payment gateway.

Merchants that take advantage of the Merchant Warrior payment platform can rest assured that all products have been thoroughly assessed and will continue to maintain the highest level of compliance.

The introduction of our Token Payments solution (including Tokenized Batch Payments), Transparent Redirect and Hosted Payments has aided a number of organizations in maintaining the highest level of compliance and reducing the costs that are associated with the PCI DSS.

We owe a great deal of thanks to the support that we have received from our acquiring partners (National Australia Bank, Westpac Banking Group, Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Limited, Commonwealth Bank of Australia), our merchants and of course our QSA – Securus Global.

MW & Magento… Finally!


We know that it has been a long time coming but we have finally got there. Our merchants have been asking us for an integration module into the one of the world’s most popular open source eCommerce stores – Magento and finally they have it.

What is Magento?

“Magento is a feature-rich, professional open-source eCommerce solution that offers merchants complete flexibility and control over the look, content, and functionality of their online store. Magento’s intuitive administration interface contains powerful marketing, merchandising and content management tools to give merchants the power to create sites that are tailored to their unique business needs. Completely scalable and backed by an extensive support network, Magento offers companies the ultimate eCommerce solution.”Magento

Magento & MW – How?

As those of you who have integrated with Merchant Warrior in the past will already know – we like to keep it simple. The Merchant Warrior Developer Zone has been updated to include a Magento 1.5+ module that includes instructions on how to install the module and enable your Magento shopping cart to accept online payments via the Merchant Warrior Payment Gateway.

Merchant Warrior & Magento are a powerful combination that merchants should consider, whether they be searching the market for the right shopping cart or looking to take their current eCommerce platform to the next level.

MW Batch Payments!

Batch Payments REVAMPED

Merchant Warrior - Batch Payments

What are Batch Payments?

Merchant Warrior’s Batch Payments offers merchants a simple way to process a large number of offline or periodic transactions. If your business is processing large volumes of subscriptions, membership fees or installment fees then you will already be using a Batch Payments solution or you should be.

Batch Payments are processed by a merchant compiling a file which contains a list of the transactions which need to be processed for a specific period. This file is then submitted to a Payment Gateway for processing. A solution such as Merchant Warrior’s Batch Payments is a much more efficient method of processing transactions when you are dealing with a high volume of transactions.

Why Merchant Warrior Batch Payments?

Merchant Warrior offers its merchants two methods of processing Batch Payments:

  • Manual upload via the Merchant Warrior administration panel
  • Merchant Warrior’s advanced Direct API platform

Both of these batch processing methods support .csv (comma separated value), .xls (microsoft excel 94-2004) and .xlsx (microsoft excel 2007) file formats.

In the past Batch Payments often meant that merchants were dealing with complex file formats, slow transmission methods and the requirement to poll a service to identify whether the batch file had been processed or not. Have no fear – we will not put you through that pain again.

Merchant Warrior’s Batch Payments enables merchants to work with simple file formats which can be integrated into any periodic billing system whether it be for a small business or corporate.

Merchants have the ability to request and receive automatic notifications when a batch file has completed processing and have the resulting batch file compressed (if required). Reports can be emailed upon batch processing completion, are archived indefinitely and can be easily accessed via the Merchant Warrior administration panel or Direct API.

Batch Payments & PCI DSS?

Yes, we do our math. Our team works hard to ensure that we supply our merchants with the best solutions in the industry.

The Merchant Warrior Batch Payments solution supports our extremely popular Token Payments service. Rather than be required to store your customer’s credit card information locally you can simply submit a batch file to the Merchant Warrior Direct API or merchant administration panel filled with Tokens (see Merchant Warrior Token Payments for more information).

What’s next?

There are a lot of new features and updates that we are performing to our processing platform. Our aim has always and will always be to offer our clients the best payment solutions in the industry that ease their integrations, ensure their PCI DSS Compliance and increase their processing security.

We believe our Batch Payments revamp is a step forward for our processing platform and one that will encourage merchants to take advantage of our advanced Payment Gateway and customer focused services. In short – our merchants love it, we hope you do too!

For further information visit Merchant Warrior Batch Payments. Sample batch files and integration documentation can be found at the Merchant Warrior Developer Zone.
