Merchant Warehouse is proud to introduce MerchantWARE 4.0, which provides custom integration processes for point-of-sale (POS) developers and includes complete support of ID TECH’s SL Secure Line products. MerchantWARE 4.0 supports ID TECH’s SecureKey M130 and SecureMag as well as Triple Data Encryption Standard (TDES) and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) methods. This updated MerchantWARE product suite and integration with ID TECH makes Merchant Warehouse one of the few payment solutions providers that offers more than one “out-of-scope” solution.

ID TECH chose the MerchantWARE Payment Suite as a preferred decryption services for its line of secure devices.  The partnership allows merchants and POS developers to combine ID TECH’s encrypted card readers and keypads with MerchantWARE’s API to offer a robust end-to-end encryption solution. PA-DSS compliance is dramatically simplified for POS developers, often taking them “out-of-scope” for PA-DSS audits.  Not only that, MerchantWARE 4.0 minimizes the complexity and costs of PCI compliance for merchants. By offering a payment solution where both swiped and keyed transactions are protected with end-to-end encryption, merchants can be assured sensitive card data is protected throughout the entire transaction.

“We are excited about our partnership with ID TECH, as it combines Merchant Warehouse’s secure payment solutions with ID TECH’s line of encrypted card readers,” says Henry Helgeson, co-CEO of Merchant Warehouse. “Together we can deliver superior performance to our customers and bring another level of data security confidence to the market.”

Yvonne Yong, product manager of ID TECH, agrees saying, “We are pleased and excited about this opportunity to partner with Merchant Warehouse. We believe MerchantWARE’s focus on bringing innovative and secure payment solutions to the market combined with ID TECH’s SL Secure Line products will provide merchants and developers everywhere with the best secure payment solutions possible.”
