Schools, colleges, and other educational organizations can all benefit from cost-saving, time-saving solutions. With this in mind, Century has developed a proprietary payment gateway that streamlines education credit card processing procedures and automatically obtains the lowest base costs for all credit cards. Whether you process online (donations, tuition, etc.) or in person (cafeteria, bookstore, tuition, etc.), we have a range of solutions for you that are not only completely safe, but trackable and low-cost.

Our solutions help you save money on your processing costs and improve accounting workflows by reducing double data entry and eliminating nightly reconciliations. In addition, our processing solutions are PCI compliant and designed to reduce your PCI scope by storing your customers’ information off-site in a secure data vault. We also encrypt and tokenize payment information so you can safely save customer data for recurring billing.

Unparalleled integration technology

Integrate with your ERP or accounting software

Our software integration technology is what separates us from other merchant service providers. Our credit card processing solutions integrate directly with your system, allowing you to accept electronic payments within your existing shopping cart, accounting software, or CRM system. The payment application marks outstanding invoices as paid immediately, so there’s no need to go back into your software at the end of the day to reconcile your invoices or balance your general ledger.

Additionally, our integration applications lower costs on business-type credit cards and government purchasing cards. There are approximately 45 different types of credit cards that currently fit those distinctions, and we can usually lower the cost of those cards anywhere from 0.5%-1.0%. Depending on your volume, this can lead to a fee reduction of anywhere between 15-50%.

We utilize the latest data security techniques like tokenization and encryption, and our cloud-based payment gateway stores sensitive information offsite, eliminating your liability.
