    No. Almost all toll-free numbers are transferable, so if you have an existing toll-free number that is essential to your organization and do not wish to relinquish the number, we can assist. Basically, you submit an agreement with 800 Call-KC which tells the carrier that we are now responsible for the line charges as long as we are contracted to do business together.

Merchant Account Solutions

  1. What is a merchant account and why do I need one?
    A merchant account is an agreement between a retailer, a merchant bank and a payment processor for the settlement of credit card and/or debit card transactions. Whether your organization is a for profit or a non-profit venture, your organization probably needs the ability to accept credit card payments. To survive in today's marketplace, each organization should consider obtaining a merchant account, accepting all major credit cards.

  2. Can 800 Call-KC help my organization obtain a merchant account?
    Yes, 800 Call-KC can obtain a merchant account for your organization as well as handle the merchant account processing. We will provide assistance through the application process of obtaining a merchant account or an ACH account, using our banking relationships. As for processing, we can provide your organization with a web-based virtual terminal called Quick Charge, which will permit your organization to execute credit card transactions by phone, fax, web, mail order, etc. There is no need to lease or purchase a terminal or ‘Point of Sale' machine to authorize the credit card transaction. You simply enter the payment information on a screen on your computer to complete the credit card transaction.

    800 Call-KC can also process payments using Interactive Voice Response. This solution adapts well to fit your needs, whether you have low volume of manual entries or you wish to offer a toll free number for customers to input their payments on any touch-tone phone. The flexibility of the system allows for sales and authorization, credits and sales, and pre and post-refunds.

  3. What is an ACH transaction?
    Automated Clearing House, or ACH, is an electronic network for processing large volumes of credit and debit transactions in batches. An ACH transaction starts with the Receiver (check writer/bank account holder/etc) authorizing an Originator (person or company providing product or service) to issue ACH debit or credit to an account. Accounts are identified by the bank's Routing Number and the account number within that bank. ACH must have authorization prior to processing the transaction. Depending on the ACH transaction, the authorization can be in writing, verbal, or electronic from the Receiver.

  4. Can 800 Call-KC process ACH transactions?
    Yes, we have an electronic check solution that is as easy as accepting credit cards. We can provide your organization with a web based virtual terminal, Quick Charge, which will permit your organization to execute monetary transactions by phone, fax, mail order, etc. This service allows your organization to accept E-checks, E-commerce payments, Business-to-Business payments, direct deposits, or execute direct payments. In addition, you will have the option of real-time processing or the flexible batch mode.

  5. Can 800 Call-KC process batch payments?
    800 Call-KC has a streamlined process for organizations that need a payment solution for a large volume of credit card and/or check payments, where face-to-face contact is not required such as with mail orders and telephone orders. With this solution, organizations are able to submit multiple transactions in a single file to process credit card and electronic check transaction data. FTP batching is flexible and can be done from a mainframe or personal computer.

    FTP batching will assist your management's abilities to make sound business judgments based on the customer related data attached to the transaction files. Additionally, your organization will be able to meet your customer's expectations of timely billing and receipt of payments through same day authorization processing.

  6. What is meant by a payment gateway?
    A payment gateway is an e-commerce service that authorizes payments for e-businesses and online retailers. A gateway usually has 2 components; the virtual terminal that can allow for a merchant to securely login and key in credit card numbers or, have the website’s shopping cart connect to the gateway via an API to allow for real-time processing from the merchant’s website.

    800 Call-KC has collaborated with Global Payments to offer a gateway that ensures encrypted, fast and reliable electronic payment transactions. 800 Call-KC’s virtual terminal, Quick Charge, permits a merchant to securely login and key in credit card/check payment information. We also provide a connection for a website shopping cart to the gateway via the API for real-time processing from the merchant’s website.

    No, 800 Call-KC has partnered with First National Bank of Omaha to market merchant accounts directly for Visa and Mastercard. An ISO, Independent Sales Organization, must be sponsored by a member bank. This sponsorship requires that the bank verify the financial stability and suitability of the company that will be marketing on its behalf. The ISO must also pay a fee to be registered with Visa and Mastercard and must comply with regulations in how they may market merchant solutions and use the copyrights of Visa and Mastercard.
