First Data and BlueSnap Announce Partnership

We are pleased to announce a partnership with First Data, a global leader in commerce-enabling technology. By combining the power of our All-in-One Payment Platform with First Data’s suite of global and local payment solutions, we’ll be able to expand our global processing capabilities—increasing sales and reducing costs for you. Read the news.

Google Pay Is Here

Just in time for holiday shopping, you can now add Google Pay to your list of payment options. Early predictions for the 2018 holiday shopping season indicate that over 50% of shopping will take place on mobile devices. And with more than 11 million users, Google Pay is one of the most popular eWallets available. Offer it alongside your other mobile wallets (like Apple Pay or Visa Checkout) to ensure you capture the most holiday sales possible. For easy setup on mobile, we have an Android SDK too. Read about Google Pay.

Seamless Amex Subscription Payments

Great news, Account Updater now includes American Express CardrefresherTM—a secure, automated service that keeps AMEX card data up to date. For anyone with recurring billing or subscriptions, a customer’s changing card number can mean lost revenue and service interruption. Now, in addition to Visa and Mastercard, American Express cards will also be up to date—which means more revenue and happier customers. Learn more. 

A Boon For Your Australian Sales

Looking to convert more shoppers to buyers in Australia? We’ve added an Australian bank to our global network that can help increase your sales and reduce your costs. If you’re a B2B or B2C company conducting business in the region, there’s simply no better way to convert a greater number of Australian payments at a lower cost than with a local BlueSnap bank connection. Sign up.

Email: Any Way You Want It

You asked, we listened—we’ve updated our email configuration system to give you the power to pick and choose the merchant and shopper emails you want to utilize. Now you can change your settings easily and quickly, without contacting us. All shopper and merchant emails are listed on the “Email Settings” page in the console; simply toggle each type on or off, and you’re good to go. Learn more about Email Settings. 

Kicking Our Reporting Up A Notch

We’ve updated some key reports and the reporting API to give you greater visibility into your payment process and sales. The new Account Balance Detail report allows you to view transactions included in your account balance; and metadata fields were added to the transaction detail, recent activity, and payout detail reports. These improvements are automatically available to all BlueSnap merchants. Check Out Reports.

A Payments Integration Success Story

Veracross, a fast-growing software company and leading provider of school information systems, turned to BlueSnap for an integrated payment solution that would help meet the unique payment needs of schools. The result proved to be a significant value-add for the system’s users: Veracross schools now spend a fraction of the time on reconciliation compared to other payment solutions. This case study outlines the Veracross story in more detail—take a look! Read the Case Study!

Customer reviews are a big driver of our business. So if you’re a fan of our payment platform, we hope you’ll consider leaving us a review on G2 Crowd.
