This article outlines information for onboarding Vantiv Core Host Capture - EMV merchant accounts, and its specific boarding requirements.
Settlement Method Supported
We support Vantiv Core Host Capture - EMV as Host Capture. When a merchant account is setup for host capture the batch files are stored at the processors (acquirers) host computer. The transactions that occur throughout the day may be selected at random periods of time. Therefore we do not have the visibility of the transactions once they have left from the terminal to the processor (acquirer) for settlement. As this is a host capture processor, the settlement time cannot be adjusted on the gateway. The merchant will need to reach out to Worldpay/Vantiv to make any changes to settlement times.
VAR Sheet Requirements
These are used to onboard the Processor Information section when Adding the Credit Card Processor:
- Bank ID - 4 digit Bank ID (also known as the Acquiring Institution Code) from the VAR sheet
- Terminal ID - 3 digit Card Acceptor/Terminal ID under 610 protocol from the VAR sheet
- Merchant ID - 12 digit Merchant ID from the VAR sheet
This information can be provided to Worldpay/Vantiv when creating the VAR sheet for specific settings, along with the device the merchant will be using:
- VAR should be configured to Worldpay (Vantiv/RAFT610) Host Capture
*** Once the boarding in complete, please test the account by processing a transaction and confirm that funds are depositing into your merchant account before going live. ***
