This new partnership enables Market Hardware to offer its customers the ability to accept credit card and ACH payments with an online form.

The ability to accept online payments is becoming increasingly important for a wide variety of small business sectors. Market Hardware provides vertically-relevant web sites and web marketing to targeted small business verticals including re modelers, contractors, chiropractors and financial advisers. The addition of PaySimple enables them to offer custom-branded online-bill pay forms so that these businesses can provide a simple and convenient payment alternative to their own customers.

“We are excited to begin working with Market Hardware to provide an e-commerce option for their customers,” says Eric Remer, CEO of PaySimple. “Our simple system is ideal for users with all levels of web expertise, and our robust API makes for straightforward back-end integration.”

“Our partnership with PaySimple enables us to make our Complete Website Package even more complete,” said Patrick Smith, Market Hardware’s COO. “Now, in addition to content, design, and search engine marketing we can provide e-commerce capability as well. Our customers are looking for a merchant account solution that is easy to implement and cost effective. Pay Simple delivers on both counts.”

The e-commerce package offered to Market Hardware customers includes a custom designed online payment form that feeds into the PaySimple payment gateway. The form, which is stored on PaySimple’s secure server, can be used to process one-time payments or to create a new auto payment account for recurring charges. The PaySimple gateway can be used to process payments from credit cards, electronic checks, or ACH direct-debits-at some of the lowest rates available. Alternately, an online shopping cart can be integrated directly into the PaySimple gateway using a robust API that is custom configurable to accept proprietary fields.
