Securely Save Customer Credit Cards

Customers can easily and securely save multiple credit cards to their account for faster checkout when you use TransArmor tokenization via First Data. 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.

Support for Automatic Refunds – NEW

Shop employees can now process refunds for an order paid for with First Data directly from within WooCommerce — no more logging into your First Data Payeezy account to process refunds! Speed up your store management by creating full or partial refunds from the “Edit Order” screen and sending the transaction automatically to First Data by clicking “Refund via Credit Card”.

Support for Soft Descriptors

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.
