We’ve done it again. Added something great to CardPointe. With each update to CardPointe, we add something that will make running your business a little easier.
This time, that something is called the Equipment Manager.
It’s a corner of CardPointe where you can keep track of all the equipment you order to process payments for your business. To get there, just log in to CardPointe and visit the ‘My Account’ section. You can access the tracking information for your shipments and even make address changes for equipment you’ve already ordered. Now, pay close attention...this is also the place where you’ll go to securely activate your new devices.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Don’t forget that when you receive your equipment in the mail, you have to activate all devices within your CardPointe account, before you can start using them. This is a security procedure to ensure that a device has not been intercepted and set up by a malicious third-party. Luckily, CardPointe makes activation easy. Just log in, visit the ‘My Account’ section and click the ‘Device’ tab. There you’ll see listed, all the devices for your account. Just click the ‘Enable’ button next to the ones you want to activate and you’re ready to start processing!
If you’re not familiar with our devices, the CardPointe Terminal is one of our most popular. It comes in two versions, the Ingenico iCT220 and the Ingenico iCT250 (with a color display), both of which are countertop terminals perfect for retailers, restaurants, and other small shops.
Check out this video for details on setting up the CardPointe terminal after it’s been enabled.
If you’re a current merchant with us and you need to place an order for a terminal or mobile device, you can visit the Marketplace tab in your CardPointe account, or just go directly to shop.cardconnect.com and start filling up your cart!
Other New Features: AVS Thresholds & Receipt Tip Lines
We’re really excited about the addition of the Equipment Manager to CardPointe, but that’s not all. We’ve also added the ability to enter a dollar amount threshold for Address Verification System (AVS) mismatches. For transactions that fall under the defined threshold amount, they’ll be authorized and voided if there’s a mismatch. Anything that goes over the threshold will be verified before an authorization is attempted.
And one more thing. If you wish, you can now add tip lines to your receipts! If you have the ‘tip adjust’ setting enabled in your CardPointe account, you can then visit the ‘Administration’ tab once you’ve logged in to CardPointe. The in the ‘Receipts’ tab, you can check the box next to ‘Tip Lines’ and click save. Doing this will add a line for your customers to add tips to printed receipts.
To learn more about the recent updates to the CardPointe platform, you can always check out the detailed release notes in our Support Center.
If you think this all sounds pretty cool, and you want to start processing with us, you can head straight to our Signup form to get a conversation started: cardconnect.com/signup.

Creating A Smarter SAP® Payment Integration
Earlier this month, our team rolled up their sleeves and reconfigured the coding that connects CardSecure®, our comprehensive enterprise payments platform to SAP®. Today, we’re excited to share that the same platform has been SAP® certified as powered by the SAP NetWeaver®.
What it means for customers
Our updated integration code and new SAP® certification both significantly reduce complexity – enabling our customers to easily accept credit cards and other electronic payments in a secure, PCI-validated environment that fully integrates with SAP® right way.
Why it matters
In today’s world, it’s not a matter of if a data breach will happen, but when. So, time is really of the essence when deploying a solid electronic payments platform. Because unfortunately for enterprises when data breaches, fraudulent activities or failed audits do occur they are often amplified by the media causing a devastating and sometimes irreversible loss of customer trust, brand recognition and earnings.
Also, as you probably know, the world of enterprise applications is in a constant state of fluctuation, which means modern organizations require a more adaptive integration process that easily allows for future growth. We are proud to announce that both advancements will allow for a seamless transition to SAP HANA and Fiori, the latest cloud-based technologies SAP® has to offer.
Special Shout Out
We are so appreciative of our partner DataXstream for aiding us through the certification process. With its proven multitier methodology, our team was able to accelerate the time needed to complete the certification. Thank you!

A Better Bolt: We’re Making the Most Simple Integration Even Simpler
Earlier this year, we made a big splash with the release of our cloud-based API terminal solution, Bolt P2PE. It allows software companies to easily integrate their own applications with our growing line of Bolt-compatible payment devices. These devices come with our PCI-validated Point-to-point Encryption (P2PE) and are EMV pre-certified, so you can quickly achieve EMV acceptance and PCI audit scope reduction within any software application.
Since its launch, Bolt P2PE can be used to integrate the following devices:
This week we’re particularly excited because we’re announcing our latest release of Bolt that allows our partners more direct control of the terminal and interaction with the user. This time around, the integration comes with additional functionality and flow options for your solution:
The added ability for our partners to prompt and get a signature whenever they want to during their workflow by calling getSignature directly
Functions that return tokenized card data which now provide more information such as the expiration date, name on card, and signature data
Ability to leverage one device across multiple point of sale workstations, if desired
Option to display a prompt on the device that asks the user to confirm the transaction at the point of sale
IF YOU’RE A CURRENT USER
If you’re already integrated with Bolt, and you’re ready for the latest version, contact your dedicated integration support team and they’ll be able to get you set up.
