Introducing Plastic 2!
June 4, 2013 — 360Works is proud to announce the release of Plastic 2! The Plastic 2 plug-in makes it easy to process secure, SSL-encrypted credit card payments from FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Server, and FileMaker Web Publishing.
Plastic 2 can run charges and transactions with credit-card swipers, card-not-present accounts, direct check debiting, and much more. Plastic 2 introduces profile-based payments, or tokenization, which save payment and customer data to the gateway.
Profile-based payments: PCI compliance made easy
Profile-based payments, also known as tokenization, save payment and customer information with the merchant provider instead of in your database. By keeping this sensitive data out of your solution, obtaining PCI compliance is much simpler.
Use this stored information to process payments quickly and securely, without having to re-key or swipe card data multiple times. Using 360Works Plastic, the database only stores a customer token (instead of actual card data) which can then be used to run future charges.
Subscriptions and recurring payments
Set up recurring billing to automatically charge customers on a schedule. Save the payment information straight to the gateway, not your database, along with a specified time period and frequency.
Bill customers on flexible, customized schedules, perfect for non-profit or donation campaigns. Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time.
Direct debits and ACH payments
With Plastic 2, you can take an electronic check with Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments. Supported with six gateways, this payment method will process a direct debit sale, void, or refund straight to a bank account.
Never lose a sale due to payment methods again with ACH payments—visit the website to learn more!
Many new gateways!
Process payments with your preferred provider, right in FileMaker. Plastic 2 now supports 12 total gateways, giving you complete choice over which payment gateway to use, or which gateway provides the best rates for your account.
