Addison, Texas (PRWEB) February 10, 2013
Every year millions of Americans become victims of credit card identity theft, and in most cases their information is stolen directly from an electronic payment system. Most small business owners would agree that credit card theft taking place at their business is one situation they do not want to experience. Prodigy Payment Systems has developed a solution for merchants to have peace of mind when accepting credit card payments by offering terminal security features on the entire Clear Advantage lineup of terminals.
The merchant’s credit card terminal is directly linked to their bank account and it is actually possible for someone to “debit” money from their account using an unprotected terminal. The terminal security features from Prodigy Payment Systems adds an extra line of security by allowing the merchants to key in their unique PIN. Since the PIN is a password that does not need to be shared, each employee also has their own password to gain access to terminal functions. By entering in an employee ID number merchants are also able to track transactions per individual employee.
Whether it’s deliberate (theft) or unintentional (employee mistake) both scenarios can be very costly. Prodigy attaches a secure password to process voids, refunds, batches and much more to protect the merchant from identity fraud. Terminal security is one of many advantages merchants have when choosing Prodigy as a credit card processing partner.
