SECURITY

Ascent is dedicated to protecting your business and your customer’s data. We provide security solutions for safe payment processing designed to protect your pockets every day. We understand you are focused on running your business, so we work to help safeguard your reputation and your bottom line.

Merchant of Record Setup: We set your processing account up directly with one of the largest and strongest banks in the US, so that your funds are safe through every step of the funding process.

Tokenization: Our gateway provides an additional layer of defense by replacing sensitive card information with random data, known as a token. Every token generated is unique and unusable if intercepted by a hacker.

EMV and Encryption: We provide EMV and P2PE solutions for any card present transactions you process.

Hosted Payment Pages: The strongest protection against fraud and data breaches when accepting payments online is to use a fully hosted payment page. Ascent’s payment page solution ensures you and your software never “touch” the credit card information, not even at point of entry. 

PCI Certification: We provide services and tools to help you securely manage cardholder data and ensure compliance. We have in-house experts to walk you through the PCI certification process and provide expertise if you are not currently compliant. We’ve teamed up with industry-leading PCI experts to assist you with monitoring and maintaining PCI compliance. In the event of a data breach, our partner bank may provide financial coverage if you are certified PCI compliant through their program.

Your security is a priority for us. Contact us to find out more.

SAVINGS
Reduce your processing fees so you can add more profit to your bottom line.

SAVINGS

Our simplified Interchange-Plus Pricing is designed to make payment processing simple, so you can focus on running your business. Interchange-Plus Pricing is structured to separate the components of processing costs, allowing for transparent reporting, and interchange optimization, leading to lower costs when compared with other forms of pricing, such as flat-rate or tiered-pricing models. 

We also reimburse your processing fees you originally paid to process a refund or credit to your guest. Do you get your fees back from your current processor for refunds? Due to the nature of the lodging industry, these refunded fees can add up to substantial savings over the course of a year.

Our program provides the lowest overall cost of service, by passing through the direct cost for Interchange Fees,  Assessments, and a small, set service fee in order to provide your business with the most transparent and reliable service and support every day.
