This article outlines information for onboarding Chase Paymentech NetConnect Tampa - EMV merchant accounts, and its specific boarding requirements.
Settlement Method Supported
We support Chase Paymentech NetConnect Tampa - EMV as Terminal Capture (Terminal Based (TCS)) for Credit transactions. When a merchant account is setup as Terminal Capture, the transactions are stored at our servers and sent for settlement (1 file per processor). You can update the settlement cut-off time in the Settlement Schedule settings.
VAR Sheet Requirements
These are used to onboard the Processor Information section when Adding the Credit Card Processor:
- NetConnect Username - from the VAR sheet (8-32 Characters)
- NetConnect Password - will be sent in a second email from Chase to the merchant (8-32 Characters)
- NetConnect Merchant Number - the 12 digit PNS Merchant Number from the VAR sheet
- NetConnect Terminal Number - the 3 digit Chase Paymentech assigned TID from the VAR sheet
This information can be provided to Chase Paymentech when creating the VAR sheet for specific settings, along with the device the merchant will be using:
- The VAR sheet is typically called 'Merchant Services (PNS) VAR Setup Sheet'
- PNS = Paymentech Network Services
- Should be set to Terminal Based (TCS)
- Should be set up for CardeaseV2 on PNS
If the merchant account is set up as fully Host Based (HCS), transactions will decline with Invalid Merchant error.
