Now over 1000 golf facilities can easily add low-cost ACH payment acceptance #ACH_API
OXNARD, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–February 9, 2016–
Club Prophet Systems, the world leader in Golf Management Software, has integrated linked2pay API and added ACH payment acceptance as an option for over 1000 golf facilities in the USA. Introduced at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show, the addition of ACH joins and complements credit card as the primary payment acceptance methods within the Golf Management Software.
“The ease of integration and the added value of ACH payment acceptance for our clients were key positives for us. If we would have known how easy the linked2pay API project was, we would have done it much sooner,” says Rick Robshaw, CEO of Club Prophet Systems, “the potential savings in the fees for our user base by accepting payments via ACH are significant. What really tips the scales, especially in the private club business, is that ACH is outside of PCI scope. So the ACH feature replaces storing a club member’s credit card on file for end of month member billing. As the card associations continue to shift liability to our golf club merchants, we continue to look for ways to minimize or eliminate the merchant from PCI scope while still providing secure and reliable payment ecosystems.”
The linked2pay API library is available as an asset to Integrated Software Vendors (ISVs) that are in markets where customers might pay with cash, credit cards, checks and ACH (electronic checks). The addition of linked2pay ACH does not impact the current credit card processing for an ISV that utilizes the API.
“In the case of Club Prophet Systems we had an introductory phone call where I pointed them toward our Developer’s Sandbox. In no time I heard back that they had completed the work and were ready for me to move them to our production environment so their clients could add the ACH option for payments,” adds Kyle Taylor, Business Development Manager for linked2pay.
