We know many of our customers have been looking forward to the Chase Paymentech integration for WooCommerce being re-released. We’re happy to announce that the WooCommerce Chase Paymentech extension is now available for purchase again!
Unfortunately, Chase Paymentech no longer allows integrations to be pre-certified, which means that merchants will have to submit an application with Chase for individual certification to use the integration. However, this process is fairly straight-forward for merchants to complete. The first step is for merchants to register using the WooCommerce integration link so that Chase is aware of which integration is being used, then fill out the application for certification via Chase. The approval process usually takes about 5 days.
Once the merchant submits this application, s/he will also have to undergo quarterly PCI compliance scans. We recommend that merchants use Security Metrics. This makes up the only additional costs needed to use this integration. There are no certification fees through Chase.
Following approval from Chase, merchants can usually start testing the integration in their environment within 5 business days. This allows the merchant to ensure that all transaction types are processed correctly in your site environment. These test transactions will be submitted to Chase for review. Following this, Chase will issue a production username within 7-10 days.
Based on the test group of merchants that we were able to go through this process with, we’re currently putting together some documentation on any questions that arose throughout the process to make this as seamless as possible. While setup is a bit more involved than with some other gateways, we’re excited that merchants will benefit from top-notch security for their WooCommerce payment processing.
