Merchants operating on the 3dcart ecommerce solution will now be able to use Square's payment processing features.
The integration allows for next-day direct deposits, enables the merchant to accept all major credit cards at a single rate, and facilitates integration of reporting between online and offline sales. Merchants will now have the option to seamlessly use 3dcart's full-featured online store platform together with Square's payment gateway.
Square also features Authorize Only, which allows merchants to authorize a credit card but hold off on processing the payment. This is useful for verifying that funds are available on a card before an order is prepared, or for postponing collection of funds until later.
Additionally, card information can be kept on file to let customers save time during checkout, reducing one of the main causes of cart abandonment. In conjunction with 3dcart's Autoship function, saved card information can be used to set up a subscription option for automatic orders.
