Velocity is a payment-processing platform enabling developers and merchants to accept payments in their apps or websites. Our services include full stack options that include a merchant account or simply just payment gateway services leveraging our technologies for simple access.
North American Bancard (NAB) acquired a perpetual software license from IP Commerce for their gateway switching platform at the end of 2013, following IP Commerce’s announcement to discontinue providing such services. This software is the core engine driving Velocity. Since the acquisition, the Velocity team has continued to expand the software capabilities adding more service providers and value added services to support its greater software community.
Velocity services all kinds of players within the payments industry, our partners include Merchants to ISVs (Integrated Solution Vendors) to Dealers and Agents. We cover major industry segments including Retail and Restaurants, MOTO, eCommere, Multi-Solution and Mobile.
We work with various payments methods including Credit, Debit, EBT, EMV, Stored Value Accounts including Gift and Loyalty processing, Checking and ACH. We support all the major brands through our stack, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diner’s Club as well as Private Label Cards.
Merchants generally are approved same day for processing. In some cases, we’ll need to gather some additional information before you can start processing. In that event, we will get in touch with you same day to get all the necessary information to get you going.
Generally transactions are deposited into your bank account in 2 business days. If your merchant account is eligible for enrolling for next day funding, we deposit your funds within the next day.
Yes, the data is yours. That is how confident we are about our services. In the event you do want to port your customer data with you, there will be amicable costs to cover securely processing that request that you will incur.
In general, we are seeing an average turnaround of 2 weeks for when developers received certification assets to being certified. Times do vary with respect to the complexity of the project, other commitments being balanced by developers, and the developers experience level.
Our API supports both SOAP and REST interfaces for direct integrations. On the client side, for mobile developers, we support libraries for iOS and Android. For service side developers, we have client libraries for Ruby, Microsoft .NET, PHP, and Java.
Yes, the current API is backwards compatible with existing integrations to the IP Commerce platform prior to the acquisition. Even though you are most of the way certified with Velocity, you will still need to go through the formalities of certification to ensure you get the best support in production. If you certified with other companies that also have a perpetual software license to IP Commerce, we are compatible as well.
Yes, we have two solutions addressing hosted checkout. Our Hosted Payments Form solution is an embeddable payments form for desktop, tablet and mobile devices, working within your site, without redirecting customers away to complete the transaction. If you want to build the whole payments form yourself, our Direct Post solution is there to help you tokenize and charge keeping you out of scope for PCI.
By leveraging Velocity’s security solutions, including Hosted Checkout, Point-to-Point Encryption, Tokenization and Semi-Integrated Solutions, you can avoid being in scope of PCI.
Velocity’s Semi-Integrated solutions are designed to take the payments out of the point of sale. The point of sale will simply invoke the SI application via its inbound API with non-sensitive transactional data request. The SI application will then handle all sensitive transaction data processing returning a tokenized response. The end result is an out of scope point of sale.
EMV ready or capable hardware solutions is strictly hardware that is certified for taking on EMV transactions, however they are not production solutions “enabled” for processing EMV card transactions just yet. The reasoning behind this, is they are lacking the missing application component that is EMV fully certified with the hardware, processor and brands for enabling the processing of EMV cards.
