TOUCHNET PAYMENT GATEWAY (TPG) is a secure, scalable, and powerful electronic payment engine. TPG supports credit card, debit card, and electronic check payments made online, in-person, via mail, and by telephone for a wide variety of student accounting and e-commerce applications. It is the foundation for institution-wide electronic payment processing.
TOUCHNET OPERATIONS CENTER is the administrative hub for viewing payment reports, managing payments, and updating system configurations. Administrators set system settings to reflect current business practices and preferences. They manage merchant IDs. For credit cards, administrators set the maximum amount for authorization, the time delay, and the time batch settlements are initiated. For electronic checks, administrators manage the immediate origination and destination, the name of the bank, the bank's routing number, and the school's organization ID. The TPG Operations Center also provides reports for campus commerce activity that are sorted, filtered, and tailored for individual business requirements. CREDIT/DEBIT/ACH. TPG can process payments made via credit card, debit card, or electronic check. You can choose which payment types offer the best advantage to your institution. TPG can connect to almost all of North America's commonly used card payment processors. You can retain the flexibility to negotiate the best rates available. You're not tied to a single payment processor, but instead, can take advantage of dynamic change in the industry to select the processor that offers the most benefits to your institution. Electronic checks are processed via the ACH Network, a network in use for decades to process transfers of funds from one bank account to another. ARCHITECTURE. TPG is a sophisticated suite of software components - payment engines, transaction processors, integration routines, security checkpoints, administrative tools, and more - embedded in multi-layered software architecture. This multi-layered architecture delivers unprecedented flexibility and software longevity to colleges and universities. It localizes the impact of change in one layer from affecting other layers, which gives institutions the flexibility to adapt payment systems to industry advancements, new technology, and added functionality over time without the usual effort and risk associated with programming projects.
