Grocers and convenience stores that use distributor Hardec’s to buy products to sell now have an online and digital payment option.
Omaha, Neb.-based Financial Transmission Network Inc. said it is supplying Hardec’s with an online payment portal that enables its customers to pay invoices via automated clearing house transactions and credit cards, FTNI said Monday. Hardec’s customers also are able to store payment methods and view past payment history. Elizabethtown, Ky.-based Hardec’s also will adopt an automatic recurring payment capability.
“The ability to deploy these new payment acceptance capabilities from a single, cloud-based platform that integrates with our back-office system is a big win for us, and ultimately our customers as well,” Dan Schlaug, Hardec’s controller, said in a statement.
FTNI said the platform Hardec’s is using, dubbed ETran, works with existing bank and merchant-processor relationships and supports integration, either in batch or real-time configuration, with any back-office system. FTNI says it has more than 1,000 clients.
