GETI Partners With TGate to Certify PathwayLINK Payment Platform

Partnership Expands GETI's Merchant Services While Reducing Risk

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 20, 2011

Ft. Walton Beach, Fla. TGate Payments today announced the successful certification of PathwayLINK payment platform integration with Global eTelecom, Inc. (GETI), an electronic check, ACH, and Gift/Loyalty card processor. This certification allows merchants using PathwayLINK to process their GETI check and ACH transactions through TGate, right along with their credit and debit transactions, while taking advantage of the gateway’s risk mitigation tools, guaranteed funding, dedicated customer support, and web-based reporting for easy reconciliation. TGate’s cloud-based solutions are available a la carte or as a complete suite of payment solutions for merchants.

PathwayLINK offers independent software vendors a universal payment processing platform that provides a single integration to connect to all major processors. Available for flat-fee monthly pricing, TGate's integration solution delivers true Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance, and enables a secure connection to processors via any payment channel for any type of payment.

Designed to offer an entirely new level of flexibility, this approach gives independent software vendors the ability to keep current processing relationships in place while significantly expanding the range of other add value processor options they can offer merchants. This increases retention levels while decreasing the overhead of development, maintenance, and compliance issues.

“Partnering with TGate Payments to allow PathwayLINK users the ability to utilize GETI’s point of purchase check conversion and guarantee, as well as ACH debit services, brings additional value to this versatile payment platform,” said John Laurell, vice president of technical operations at GETI. “The ease with which developers can integrate services into PathwayLINK is impressive and creates an excellent opportunity for GETI to reach a broader spectrum of merchants.”
