Secure Payment Systems adds eProcessing Network's Payment Gateway

SPS Check and Gift Card Solutions to Enhance ePN's Gateway Offerings

San Diego, CA. Secure Payment Systems (SPS), a national leader of value added payment services and transaction processing in the U.S. and Canada, announced today that eProcessing Network, LLC (ePN) has completed certification of SPS' gift card program and check processing solutions.

By certifying SPS' Check Authorization and Guarantee Services, ePN resellers can now offer their merchants SPS' industry leading check processing on several ePN solutions, including Online Terminal, ePNJPOS, and ePNPlugIn. Merchants in all industry categories, retail, MOTO, and more, can increase sales by securely accepting checks from their customers in addition to credit cards. At the same time, merchants can further increase customer loyalty by selling and accepting gift cards.

Providing an integrated and comprehensive package like this simplifies merchant implementation and training by offering a variety of payment alternatives; in essence, a one-stop shop approach. It further eliminates having to provide these solutions from multiple sources, which can increase cost and decrease effectiveness of these programs.

"I am delighted that we are now working with the team at eProcessing Network," remarked Steve Eazell, Director of National Sales and Marketing for SPS who added, "We looked at several different payment gateway solutions and selected ePN for their professionalism and forward thinking. We look forward to a highly successful, long term relationship."

"We are always looking for other industry leaders to partner with and bring their solutions to our extensive reseller channel. SPS is a logical choice due to their proven check processing and gift card solutions," says Steve Sotis, President of eProcessing Network.
