From Bricks to Clicks: Transitioning to Online Payment Systems

From Bricks to Clicks: Transitioning to Online Payment Systems - All-Star Terminals


In the ever-evolving landscape of commerce, businesses are increasingly moving from traditional brick-and-mortar operations to the dynamic world of online transactions. One critical aspect of this transition is the adaptation of payment methods to suit the new era of digital commerce. Allstar Terminals, at the forefront of this revolution, offers an innovative solution: the Virtual Terminal, a tool that makes the shift seamless and efficient, especially for Mail Order/Telephone Order (MOTO) transactions.

No Physical Credit Card? No Problem!

In the traditional business model, physical credit cards were essential for payment processing. However, with Allstar Terminals' Virtual Terminal, this is no longer a constraint. Our solution is designed to process payments without the need for a physical credit card, catering to scenarios where neither the card nor the customer is present. This approach is not just a convenience; it's a gateway to expanding your business reach beyond physical limitations.

The Ideal Solution for MOTO Payments

MOTO payments have been a challenge for many businesses, with security and convenience being primary concerns. Allstar Terminals addresses these issues head-on. Our CardPointe Virtual Terminal, complimentary with a CardPointe account, provides a reliable and secure platform for telephone or mail order payments. This feature is not just an add-on; it's a robust tool tailored to meet the specific needs of MOTO transactions.

Accept Payments Anywhere, Anytime

Flexibility in payment processing is no longer a luxury but a necessity. With Allstar Terminals, you can accept payments anywhere, using only a mobile or PC browser, coupled with a CardPointe account. This feature ensures that your business is never bound by geographical limitations, offering a world of opportunities at your fingertips.

Simplifying Payments for All

While online shopping is a growing trend, there remains a significant number of shoppers who prefer alternative payment methods. Allstar Terminals caters to this diversity by simplifying payments for those who are reluctant to pay online. This approach not only broadens your customer base but also enhances the shopping experience for all.

Security and Convenience: A Dual Promise

In an era where data breaches are a significant concern, Allstar Terminals promises utmost security. Our patented tokenization process replaces customer data with irreversible tokens, rendering the information useless to hackers. Additionally, our Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) can be paired with PCI-validated, P2PE-enabled devices to ensure the protection of cardholder data throughout its lifecycle.

Seamless Integration with Physical Devices

Transitioning to a virtual model doesn't mean abandoning physical devices. Allstar Terminals offers simple device integration, allowing you to connect with a suite of secure EMV-capable devices. This integration ensures that your business enjoys the benefits of both physical and virtual payment solutions, delivering a comprehensive payment processing experience.

How It Works: A Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Order Placement: A customer places an order over the phone, providing their payment details.
  2. Payment Processing: These details are manually entered into the secure Virtual Terminal.
  3. Transaction Completion: Users can instantly view successful transaction details and email customer receipts, enhancing the overall customer experience.

Allstar Terminals' Virtual Terminal is more than just a payment processing tool. It's an integrated solution designed to store customer data securely for recurring billing, scheduled payments, and faster checkouts. This feature not only streamlines the payment process but also builds a foundation for customer loyalty and repeat business.
