Our certification should bring a comprehensive omnichannel solution for Retail Pro® customers
New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) October 16, 2014
Leading omnichannel platform provider UniteU announced today its certification with Retail Pro International’s payments solution partner Merchant Warehouse, making it turnkey for Retail Pro® retailers to create fully-integrated, responsive eCommerce websites for desktops, tablets and smartphones.
“The Merchant Warehouse certification is another step forward in building an ecosystem of value for Retail Pro® omnichannel retailers,” said Soumen Das, CEO at UniteU. “With Merchant Warehouse, we’re now able to offer fully-integrated card-not-present processing for their eCommerce and mCommerce business, but also card-present transactions for mobile point-of-sale transactions as well.” In addition, the certifications cover gift card transactions for supported Merchant Warehouse providers, including Smart Transaction Systems (STS), Valutec and Givex.
Since completing the certification, Peutz Golf and Ski Center, both clients on the UniteU platform, have implemented Merchant Warehouse Gift Cards that can be redeemed both online as well as in-store. Several other customers have added Merchant Warehouse processing to UniteU eCommerce, mCommerce and mobile POS offerings that are in development and launching soon.
“Merchant Warehouse is looking forward to a great partnership with UniteU. Our certification should bring a comprehensive omnichannel solution for Retail Pro® customers,” said Henry Helgeson, CEO at Merchant Warehouse. “We’re excited for retailers to discover just how easy digital commerce integrations can be with this partnership.”
UniteU was the first eCommerce platform integrated with Retail Pro® and is the most experienced eCommerce and mCommerce provider in that channel. It is also a supplier to the Internet Retailer (IR) Hot 100 and the IR Mobile 500. The omnichannel platform integrates seamlessly with Retail Pro®8 and Retail Pro®9, as well as Retail Pro Prism®.
This new certification means that retailers no longer have to manage disparate payment and gift card systems for their eCommerce, mobile commerce and mobile point-of-sale offerings. “With UniteU, Retail Pro® retailers have access to a wide range of modular commerce solutions and services that work with the Merchant Warehouse payment platform,” said Michael Montrose, Vice President of Sales at UniteU.
“In addition, UniteU has the very latest in alternate payment options and features that retailers need to serve their markets, including PayPal, Amazon Payments and the new Google Wallet, as well as dynamic tax calculation and fraud detection services from other major integration partners such as CyberSource.”
The new integration provides access to Merchant Warehouse services that include batch processing, real-time reporting, recurring transactions and more for credit cards, signature-and-PIN based debit cards, Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) and Gift/Loyalty cards. Multi-store and omnichannel features are completely integrated, and eliminate the multi-store fees charged by other processors.
