Like all processors, Monify lets you accept major credit and debit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB, and Diners Club). However, since it also caters to convenience stores and gas stations, the company specializes in fleet cards like Fuelman, Voyager, and Wex. Additionally, Monify boasts familiarity with business-to-business (B2B) payments.
If you’d like, you can also accept electronic checks, EBT, and gift or loyalty cards. Monify boasts next day funding so you’ll have access to your money quickly.
For businesses in the retail and restaurant industries, Monify Merchant Solutions offers payment processing with PCI compliant terminals. In addition to accepting credit and debit cards, checks, and gift cards, you can take advantage of tools like inventory management, employee tracking, and more. Specific tools available depend on the equipment you choose and apps you install.
On the go? The First Data Mobile Pay solution ensures that you can accept payments from clients anywhere you have wireless coverage, at any time. Payments are processed securely in real time, and receipts can be emailed to customers. You can prompt for tips, automatically add taxes to totals, and store a list of products in a basic inventory.
Mobile Pay is available for Apple and Android devices.
Convenience stores and gas stations have unique needs that not all processors are equipped to address. In particular, gas stations often need to accept fleet cards in order to maximize business from clients that are required to pay with their fleet card. Monify helps simplify the process of fleet card acceptance, including billing the fleet card fees, handling reporting, and working with you on chargebacks. The company can also assist with setting up pay-at-the-pump processing.

Business-to-business transactions have different requirements (and costs) than business-to-consumer transactions. Working with a company that is familiar with B2B can help ensure that you’re accepting payments in a cost-efficient manner. Monify offers B2B processing with a virtual terminal solution for securely entering card details, including the enhanced data required for B2B transactions.
There are two different levels of enhanced data – level 2 and level 3. Some processors and gateways can only support level 2. Monify Merchant Solutions supports both level 2 and level 3 enhanced data.
