Clayton, MO, May 30, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Today Clearent, one of the nation’s fastest growing payment processing companies, announced that it is the platinum donor for this year’s Build for STL civic hackathon, which will take place on May 29-31 and is geared towards making St. Louis a better place.
Build for STL teams work together to build software, applications, devices, and even art, all with the goal of the end “product” being something that benefits the community as a whole. Before the start of the event, participants can attend a volunteer fair and meet with local community and non-profit organizations to learn more about the issues impacting the greater St. Louis area. Teams of computer programmers, software developers, interface designers and more then work together over the course of the next 48 hours to create a solution that benefits the most pressing needs of the community and its residents.
Clearent’s payment gateway and the Clearent Developer Center can help these teams securely integrate payments into their applications or solutions, whether they are looking to accept donations or process traditional one time or recurring payments. What sets the Clearent gateway apart from others in the industry is that it offers multiple integration options, full working code samples, and live support from payments experts.
Clearent takes a multi-pronged approach to security to make payment processing more secure for developers. That’s why Clearent supports encrypted card readers to make sure that sensitive cardholder data is never in the clear. Tokenization enables recurring payments without developers needing to store card numbers in their solutions, which helps reduce their PCI scope, and Clearent’s processing platform and data center are PCI 3.0 compliant.
“There is a tremendous amount of developer talent in this city, and we’re looking forward to learning more about the solutions they come up with during Build for STL,” said Mark Sundt, CTO of Clearent. “We’re excited to support the growing developer community in St. Louis, especially for an event that will give back to the city as a whole.”
Clearent built its proprietary processing platform from the ground up 10 years ago and within that short timeframe has become one of the fastest growing payment processors in the U.S. By focusing on the core values of honesty and transparency, Clearent has been able to set itself apart from other companies in the payments business and truly focus on the needs of its sales partners, sales teams, and merchants. For example, Clearent is known for providing accurate residuals, best-in-class online reporting, flexible pricing options and for having one of the most detailed merchant statements in industry. Clearent also offers next day funding with an 11:00 Eastern cut off time, which is one of the latest in the industry and helps merchants get their money one day faster than the standard funding cycle.
Clearent is a complete payment processor that leverages its proprietary payments platform to make doing business easier and more profitable for its sales partners. Clearent’s commitment to honesty and transparency has made it one of the most trusted companies in the payments industry. Clearent is one of the fastest-growing credit card processing companies, processing $8 billion in annual transaction volume for 23,000 businesses nationwide.
