Fortunately, there’s a lot of ways that we can help make that happen, and we’ve shared several of them in this 2018 recap. Keep reading to learn more about what this year meant for us and our partners in terms of technical innovations, new partnerships, rebranding, and more.
New Product and Feature Launches
We’ve sifted through industry trends and listened closely to our merchants and partners so that we can continue to optimize our payment gateway. Here are just a few of 2018’s new products and features:
1. Account Updater Tool
Our account updater tool automatically detects and updates any expired card info on file in order to eliminate lost sales.
2. eWIC Processing
Many grocery merchants in the U.S. are facing deadlines for compliance with the new electronic processing system for WIC (Women, Infant, and Children) benefits. Fortunately, Cardknox’s eWIC support is here to help. Click here for more info.
3. Support for International Currencies
We’re working to bring our advanced payment solutions to merchants across the globe. This year, we introduced support for currencies in the European Union, Australia, Mexico, and the Caribbean!
iFields are our proprietary snippets of code that can be used instead of the standard credit card fields in a custom payment form to keep card data completely out-of-scope! Click here for more info.
5. Recurring Payments
With our recurring API, it’s easy to create customer and product profiles that are set on a recurring payment schedule—perfect for membership and subscription services. Plus, our recurring payments utilize our account updater tool to prevent lost sales. Click here for more info.
6. Seamless Onboarding Flat Rate Model
Our new seamless onboarding flat-rate model is the perfect solution for merchants who would prefer to get up-and-running fast with a simple flat rate for credit card processing. Click here for more info.
New Cardknox Branding + Website
In an effort to make our cutting-edge products and services synonymous with a modern design, we redesigned the Cardknox logo and launched a sleek new website this year! Not only is our new website nice to look at (if we say so ourselves), it’s also incredibly user-friendly and puts the spotlight on need-to-know-info for developers and merchants.
Cardknox Events and News
