Securely Save Customer Credit Cards

Customers now can easily and securely save multiple credit cards to their account for faster checkout. Payment data is stored on First Data’s secure servers, so your responsibility for PCI compliance is significantly reduced. There’s no limit to the number of cards a customer can store on their account and customers can also change their active payment method and remove payment methods from the My Account page.

Customers can manage their cards from the My Account page

Support for Soft Descriptors – NEW

First Data allows a single merchant account to be used across 150 different websites (how cool is that?). This is achieved through the use of “Soft Descriptors”. The soft descriptor allows for a secondary business name, address, and phone number to be recorded into the customers’ credit card transactions — great if your parent company holds the merchant account, but operates several child companies. You can now enable the use of soft descriptors using this gateway integration, but they must be enabled for your First Data merchant account.

Full Support for Subscriptions and Pre-Orders

First Data is an ideal gateway for WooCommerce Subscriptions, offering support for all of Subscriptions features – subscription date changes, payment date changes, and more. The gateway also fully supports WooCommerce Pre-Orders, so you can take customers’ payment information upfront and then automatically charge their payment method once the pre-order is released.
