Sphere Launches Hosted Multi-Channel Payment Suite

Gives software vendors the power of accepting payments via many channels through one single integration.

Nashville, TN, April 8, 2020—Sphere, Powered by TrustCommerce, a leading provider of end-to-end integrated payments and security software, today announced it has launched a Hosted Multi-Channel Payment suite. This solution gives software vendors the power of accepting payments via multiple channels through one simple integration.

The ability to accept payments within a  Software as a Service (SaaS) solution is essential. With consumer demand for anytime, anywhere payments, Sphere has developed a Hosted Multi-Channel Payment Suite with one of the simplest integrations on the market. One integration into our robust hosted payment form connects independent software vendors (ISVs) to many payment acceptance channels: countertop EMV, call center/back office, and traditional online/ecommerce transactions. These solutions are highly customizable, ensuring branding continuity and a seamless user experience. A full sandbox environment is available as well as sample code assistance.

Using a hosted model, sensitive payment data stays out of software vendor environments, helping to protect transactions and reduce PCI scope. To help further mitigate risk and exposure, the Hosted Multi-Channel Payments Suite supports PCI Validated Point-to-Point Encryption.

Security features include:

  • Tokenization for recurring and subscription payments
  • Validated Point to Point Encryption
  • Velocity controls to reduce fraudulent activity
  • Recaptcha

Because Sphere is a gateway and merchant services provider, we are a single source for payments, reducing moving parts and avoiding potential points of interference.

“No other platform gives software vendors more choice, less development effort, and greater opportunities for immediate revenue,” said Steve Rizzuto, Chief Executive Officer of Sphere.

“With decades of experience working with developers and integration partners, the TrustCommerce Gateway offers a wide range of products and integration methods,” said Curtis Bauer, Chief Product Officer of Sphere. “Our new Hosted Multi-Channel Payments Suite represents a revolutionary next step in the evolution of hosted payments.”
