General Setup


Merchant General Setup Description
Share All Secure Tokens This configuration enables a Merchant to define that all the Secure Tokens in its Terminals should be shared amount themselves or not.
Share Secure Tokens from deactivated terminals Depends on enabling “Share All Secure Tokens”. Allows merchants to also use the Secure Tokens of Deactivated Terminals. In case the merchant is already associated to a Merchant Portfolio with this configuration enabled, this one is automatically enabled.
Enable Single Transaction Limits Enables the Merchant to have general limits for single transactions on its terminals, regarding or not rules like: CVV and AVS verification.
Customize Register Secure Token Button Text Enables a merchant to define the text for a Secure Token registration button at the Payment Gateway side for customers' interfaces.

Enable Single Transaction Limits

If selected, this option enables to configure a Merchant with limits for single transaction in all of the Merchant's Terminals.

This feature is useful in cases a Merchant needs, given risk policies or business rules, define limits to avoid charge backs or constant declines for purchases which are being normal limits.

Let's consider the following case:

  • I) A Merchant wants to permit its terminals to allow transactions regardless the value, but
  • II) In case the transaction can't verify AVS, limit each transaction to a maximum of EUR 1000.0, or
  • III) In case the CVV can't be verified, limit each transaction to a maximum of EUR 100.0, or even
  • IV) If none can be verified, limit each transaction to EUR 10.0
