August 2003 (Chicago,
Illinois) - Key IC, a leader in high performance digital payment
processing solutions, recently released its updated version of Direct
Mode, which is a direct interface to the Key IC payment processing
Direct Mode 3.0 supports all of the same functions as the Key IC
web-based interface, including ACH payments, Credit card payments,
subscription management, recurring billing and high performance
batch processing. It gives software developers and system integrators
an easy to use API, providing access to payment processing operations
from within their own applications.
The upgrade from Direct Mode 2.1 includes the addition of swipe
capability, which enables merchants to process swipe transactions
through Direct Mode. Merchants can now process swipe transactions
via the Key IC payment processor platform. Merchants who process
a combination of card-not-present and card-present transactions
can now process all of their transactions using a single system.
Direct Mode 3.0 also includes the most powerful automated batch
uploading available in the industry. Direct Mode 3.0 has the capability
of uploading 10,000 or more transactions at once (at a rate of over
10 transactions per second), while the system automatically sorts
out rejected or incomplete records for further review, without disrupting
the overall processing of the batch. This enables even the largest,
highest-volume merchants to process transactions knowing they will
go through uninterrupted.
Direct Mode 3.0 also includes Level 2 processing which supports
commercial card transactions requiring purchase order numbers and
tax. Direct Mode 3.0 also supports multi-threading, which means
multiple transactions can be sent through simultaneously without
having to wait for previous ones to clear.
Direct Mode 3.0's added swipe capabilities, added batch mode capabilities,
improved performance and reliability, compatibility, and simplified,
easier to use API are just a few reasons to contact Key IC to find
out if you’re getting all you can get out of your payment
provider. Key IC's Direct Mode provides the optimal amount of data
available, more reporting possibilities, more integration opportunities,
and more access to more markets.
