Silver Spring, MD (PRWEB) June 19, 2014

Merchant Link, a leading payment gateway offering cloud-based cardholder data security solutions, announced that it has completed integration with Sertifi’s electronic signature system, to securely capture signatures and payments and the collective solution has been implemented at The Hub Centers for Meeting and Collaboration.

Allison Patterson, Director of Operations at The Hub shared, “With the Sertifi and Merchant Link integration, we are able to make it easy for customers to do business with us by offering a convenient method for them to sign contracts and submit event deposits within seconds. Customers are no longer hassled with printing and faxing including time-consuming credit card authorization forms. They can sign and pay anywhere, anytime, on any device.”

“Sertifi and Merchant Link have enabled us to shorten the contract and payment process by 93 percent. Today, we collect signed contracts and event deposits electronically in a PCI compliant manner within six hours and 30 minutes, eliminating the burden of paper waste by 99 percent,” Patterson continued.

The collective solution offered by Sertifi and Merchant Link adds a layer of security which in turn assists with PCI compliance. The joint solution helps businesses close sales and contracts faster.

“Our new partnership with Merchant Link enables organizations to automate both the contract and payment process with one integrated customer experience. Organizations using the robust solution offer convenience to customers and no longer deal with credit card authorization forms, secure fax lines, or fear that sensitive information is being compromised,” commented John Stojka, Co-Founder at Sertifi.

Sertifi chose to integrate to Merchant Link’s E-commerce Solution using the Hosted Payment Form so they can present the payment form to their merchant’s customer for the collection of credit card data, at the time the customer signs a contract electronically. The advanced deposit or full amount is then processed through Merchant Link as a Card Not Present with the merchant’s processor.

“We are proud to have been selected by Sertifi for the integration of their electronic signature capture service with our Secure Payment Hosted Payment Form. The alliance between Sertifi and Merchant Link is a step in the right direction as PCI regulations become more stringent and payment security technology options continue to expand,” stated Laura Meck, EVP Sales & Marketing for Merchant Link. “Sertifi is a new type of integration for us and we are pleased to be working with such a solid organization.
