Dynamics AX Credit Card Processing Alternatives 2017

Need a solution to process credit cards for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012? Whether replacing Microsoft Dynamics ERP Payment Services due to end of life announcement, or looking for an alternative to Red Maple Advanced Credit Cards, Christine Speedy has a solution to delight your customers and make your business more profitable virtually overnight. It’s wrong to thing big name gateways are compliant with your B2B payment processing needs. If that were true, our solutions would not exist.

Dynamics AX Credit Card Processing Critical Features Checklist:

  • Customer managed wallet from the very first sale, including before payment is needed. Must eliminate need for paper or digital credit card authorization forms with card data in the clear!
  • No 3rd party applications needed to get paid from invoice; automate journal entry updates. (Eliminate BillTrust and similar.)
  • Communicate the way your customers want, both text and email.
  • Automate rate qualification. A payment gateway with Level 3 processing is not enough; merchants can only qualify for level 3 (corporate, purchasing, business card) interchange rates if all the rules are met. The two most common rules B2B businesses struggle with are “Settlement within 72 hours” for card not present sales, and “Authorization amount and settlement amount must be equal”. CenPOS automates compliance, most gateways cannot.

    interchange rate qualification

    The same transaction can process at different rates, depending on which rules you follow.

  • Compliance with Visa Stored Credential Transaction framework and mandates effective October 14, 2017. Merchants need record of customers opt-in to storing and use of the stored card terms and conditions, among other items. For example, a checkbox. There are many nuances including identifying merchant initiated vs customer initiated. CenPOS automates compliance, most gateways cannot.
  • 3-D Secure cardholder authentication- increase approvals, shift fraud liability risk, and for some card types qualify for reduced interchange rates.
  • Virtual Encrypted Keypad – segment your network, software and devices from payment processing for reduced PCI Compliance scope and burden.
  • Accept payments wherever you need in AX- free text, sales orders, payment journals and more.

Improve Efficiencies, Cash Flow, Customer Experience:

  • Invoice delivery via text and email
  • 2-clicks to pay for repeat customers
  • Customer managed wallet for payment methods.
  • Invoice portal – on demand access 24/7 to view and pay invoices
  • Automated collections reminders to pay

AX Solution for all payment types:

  • ACH and check, with and without guarantee.
  • Wire- eliminate inefficiencies matching deposits to invoices and returning unidentified wires.
  • Credit card
  • Paypal and more

Depending on your current AX set up, businesses can be live in less than 2 days.

American Express SafeKey Video and B2B tips

American Express SafeKey® leverages the global industry standard, 3-D Secure®*, to detect and reduce online fraud by adding an extra layer of security when Card Members shop online. Merchant and customer experience answers in this article.

American Express SafeKey

 

How does Amex SafeKey impact the customer shopping experience? The cardholder may have some or no difference in the checkout experience, based on many factors, including prior online shopping history. The cardholder may be asked authentication question(s) to confirm it’s really the cardholder.

How does Amex SafeKey impact merchants?

  • Fraud liability for “It wasn’t me, I didn’t authorize it” goes away as liability shifts back to the issuer.
  • For business to business, where cardholder billing and shipping address frequently vary, cardholder authentication plays an important role not available with four digit CID security code validation only.
  • At this writing, American Express merchants do not receive a specific interchange discount as may be available with other card brands.

How can merchants adopt the Amex SafeKey service?

  1. Enroll your company on the American Express web site. https://network.americanexpress.com/globalnetwork/safekey/us/en/merchants-acquirers
  2. Receive e-mail from SafeKey Certification Team with your SafeKey ID and next steps.
  3. SafeKey Certification Team gets approval from Acquirer.
  4. Acquirer and SafeKey Certification Team complete required setup.
  5. Activate 3-D Secure on the application. (Ecommerce shopping cart, payment gateway, or ERP.) Both payment gateway and application must support the service.

* 3-D Secure is a registered trademark of Visa International Service Association in the United States and other countries.

Dynamics AX Online Payment Services Expiring – Replacement

Dynamics users will need to make a major update soon. Effective January 1, 2018, Payments Services for Microsoft Dynamics ERP Payment Services, including any versions of Microsoft Dynamics AX, will be discontinued and users will be unable to process credit or debit transactions after December 31, 2017. CenPOS, an enterprise payment engine, offers an integrated alternative that works seamlessly with both AX and third party applications like Magento ecommerce.

Vendor selection for replacing Payments Services will directly impact profits, efficiency and customer experience. For example, how customers receive, retrieve, and pay invoices are all part of the payment processing ecosystem. Businesses will need an Integrated Service Vendor (ISV) with a PCI Compliant integrated payment gateway. Solution functions, and how they interact with Dynamics AX, varies widely by integration.

Payment processing is a specialized niche that ERP, ecommerce, and business consultants rarely have the in-depth knowledge to advise businesses of best options. In fact, significant new changes have been announced; for example, new requirements for recurring billing to include a unique reference to the initial authorization.

“The Payment processing knowledge gap has been exacerbated by an onslaught of new financial, card brand, and compliance rule changes that show no sign of letting up.” Christine Speedy, CenPOS

CenPOS, an enterprise payment gateway and merchant centric cloud processing platform, is an industry leader in payment processing globally. One of the first to market with both US EMV chip and pin, the CenPOS omnichannel solution maximizes cash flow and profits across all sales channels while improving the customer experience.
