While 2017 had its share of success, 2018 is shaping up to be even better for NetCents Technology, a next-generation payment processor supporting multiple traditional currencies, cryptocurrencies, and all innovative payment methods.
That combination provides users with the freedom to pay by their preferred means while empowering merchants with tools lowering their financial risk.
Read on to discover what NetCents has planned for 2018.
Additional payment options and currencies supported, increased convenience
The NetCents platform lets the merchant choose their preferred payment options. So far, Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), MasterCard, Visa and fiat currencies are all accepted payments methods from the user’s wallet.
And as of Feb. 1, you can add Litecoin (LTC) to the list. LTC was included on the NC Exchange so users can deposit, withdraw and trade it for supported cryptocurrencies. LTC joins BTC and ETH, other recent additions. Users can now buy and sell all of these, along with NCCO, the NetCents coin, on the exchange with USD, CAD and the Euro.
Added security measures provide users with peace of mind
NetCents has implemented additional security measures to protect user accounts. Two-factor authentication adds an extra security layer that is activated via an email code or through Google Authenticator.
Users can also enable whitelisting, which allows them to select which IP addresses are allowed to log into their NetCents account. They can also approve and deny IP addresses, allowing them to stop unwanted activity at the earliest stages.
Do you want to know what happens to your account the second it occurs? By selecting email notification capability, you will be notified of all moves no matter where you are.
Poynt Smart Terminal integration adds another way to transact
NetCents has completed the integration of its cryptocurrency processing widget into Poynt’s Smart Terminal. When shopping at a participating retailer, follow these steps:
Log into your NetCents account
Enter the payment amount
Press the NetCents button
Select preferred payment method
Press “pay a merchant”
