Fast, Simple Conversions

Secure Submit is a javascript payment snippet that works with many e-Commerce shopping carts and platforms. Downloadable plugins and SDKs in popular programming languages make integration a breeze – helping to minimize development and begin accepting online payments through Heartland faster.

Grow Online Sales

Heartland makes it easy for your customers to pay whether they prefer to use a credit card, digital wallet, check, or gift card. For repeat purchases, Heartland supports multi-use tokenization which enables customers to store a card on file. And, our easy-to-use payment form makes checkout a breeze for customers and reduces cart abandonment since there are no redirects*.

Secure Online Payments & Reduce Risk of Online Fraud

According to an independent analysis completed by Coalfire, using Heartland's patent-pending tokenization technology (baked into each of our Secure Submit integrations) can help reduce PCI-DSS scope down to filling out the short SAQ-A form – minimizing time and expenses associated with annual PCI compliance validation. Plus, our gateway supports Advanced Fraud Screening to reduce the risk of fraudulent orders.

Secure Submit’s patent pending technology greatly minimizes PCI scope and cost, because card data never touches your server. The exchange of sensitive information occurs directly between the consumer and Heartland Payment Systems through our Portico Gateway. Our convention-based jQuery plugin streamlines this process so you don’t have to worry about obtaining tokens. The plugin handles that request and appends the resulting token to your form before it posts.
