Vanco Services, a premier provider of electronic donation and payment solutions, announces a new express checkout feature for its credit and debit card solution, e.service® Merchant Services, that expedites the entire checkout process at live and silent auctions.
People attend charitable auctions to bid, socialize and have a good time. Making supporters stand in long checkout lines at the end of the evening is no way to wrap up an otherwise successful event.
The new feature, which works with credit and debit cards, allows bidders to gather up their purchases and be quickly on their way at the conclusion of an auction. In addition to reducing wait times, express checkout also reduces risk for organizations and their supporters by holding credit and debit card information in an encrypted format at all times.
As a PCI Level 1 Compliant Service Provider, Vanco Services has protections in place for cardholder data that are consistent with the industry’s most strict privacy and security standards. Auction organizers must enter a user ID and password to access the service. And, after capturing a bidder’s credit or debit card information, event personnel are limited to viewing only the last four digits on the account.
“Long checkout lines are a hassle when bidders just want to claim their purchases and go,” said Jan Jasmin, Vice President Sales & New Business Development. “What’s great about the express checkout service is that it both speeds up the checkout process and enhances event security.”
Vanco Services, is a financial technology company that processes electronic payments for more than 17,000 clients. Under the e.service brand, Vanco offers several proprietary web-based electronic payment solutions. Vanco is a PCI (Payment Card Industry) Level 1 Compliant Service Provider.
