The Virtual Terminal is accessible through Beanstream’s Merchant Area, allowing merchants to access it anywhere they have an internet connection. To keep the payment information safe, Beanstream uses a Secure Socket Layer (SSL). A SSL is a standard technology for establishing an encrypted link between Beanstream’s server and the web browser. With SSL, both the link and the payment data being transmitted are encrypted.
When a customer calls in to place an order, the merchant simply inputs all of their information and clicks “Submit Transaction”. It is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Enter, review, and submit.
The Virtual Terminal is scalable, allowing you to have as many terminals as you would like. You can adjust the security permissions to allow your staff to only process transactions and review detailed user account security logs along with transaction reporting.
Processing payments has never “bean” so easy!
