Across more than 70 retail stores nationwide, Petsense implemented Merchant Link’s processor-neutral payment gateway that ensures transactions are routed to their appropriate destination quickly and accurately. Petsense also implemented TransactionVaultTM, Merchant Link’s tokenization solution that removes credit card data from merchants’ systems and stores it in a secure hosted “vault” – away from the business and safe from hackers. Together these security solutions help merchants meet and exceed Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requirements by ensuring sensitive cardholder data never resides in the merchant environment.

“Tokenization is an effective way for retailers to simplify their compliance efforts while avoiding becoming the next victim of a data breach,” said Laura Kirby-Meck, EVP of Sales & Marketing at Merchant Link. “In the event hackers access a merchant’s system, they would obtain meaningless tokens.”

Implementation was completed in just six weeks and with interface customization collaboratively provided by Merchant Account Mentors LLC, one of the largest independent consulting companies specializing in store systems products licensed by JDA Software Group®.

Merchant Link will be exhibiting at booth #C200 at the National Retailer’s Federation (NRF) 102nd Annual Convention and EXPO January 13-15, 2013 in New York City.
