Segpay’s New Merchant Portal is Now Open to Everyone

We are excited to announce the Segpay’s new merchant portal is officially open to all merchants and is now our default merchant portal.  We want to give a big shout out and heartfelt thanks to all our beta merchants who have been giving us feedback as we went through the testing phase.  We are so pleased and excited about the performance improvements.  Users will find it easier to navigate with a modern look showcasing Segpay’s powerful functionality.  As we mentioned in a previous blog, the most noticeable change is the additional space found at the top of the pages which will allow for more room for search results to be displayed. 

Segpay’s documents are also being updated to add screen shots to reflect the new design.  Keep an eye on the recently edited section for the most recent changes.  If for any reason you have any challenges with the new portal you can always use the button at the top right of your browser to return to the old portal.  The old portal will open a new tab. If you find that some of your bookmarks to individual pages in the old portal break and direct you to the new portal, you can just use the top menu to navigate back to the page you had bookmarked and create a new one.

Try it out and let us know how you like it.  We want to hear from you.  Please reach out to us and share your experiences.  You can use the bug reporting icon at the top left corner of the merchant portal or speak to someone at Sales@Segpay.com

Our New Merchant Portal is Here!

Segpay’s new merchant portal is now available for beta clients.  Users will find it easier to navigate with a crisp, modern look that showcases Segpay’s powerful functionality.  Our designers have been busy for months working to create the new merchant portal.  One of the most noticeable changes is the additional space found at the top of the pages. The benefit of this design change is that it offers more room for search results to be displayed in that area. To change your search, simply expand the section to see your search options again. Take a quick tour of the new portal. We’re confident you’ll find it much improved and designed with you in mind.  

To join our ongoing beta and try the new merchant portal contact your account manager or reach out to us at Sales@Segpay.com and we’ll get you started. 

Increase Free Trial Conversions by Validating Cards

Offering free trial periods can be an effective way for subscription-based merchants to showcase their services without requiring any commitment from the consumer. A downside, however, is that you can attract “trial junkies” – those who sign up just to get the free stuff, with no intention of ever actually buying a subscription. One way to cut down on trial junkies and increase the likelihood that free trials convert to members: require a valid credit card to access your trial.

An Easier Way to Upgrade Memberships

Earlier this year we wrote about how Segpay Reporting Services (SRS) can make your life easier, in particular by automating or simplifying common billing and support tasks. One such task is upgrading or downgrading a recurring membership by changing the amount that is regularly rebilled. Previously, SRS only allowed you to decrease a rebill amount. However, now you can increase a recurring charge as well, with prior approval from the Segpay compliance team.

Reduce Risk by Verifying a Cardholder’s Identity Up Front

Earlier this year, YNOT.com interviewed Segpay’s Cathy Beardsley and Jeff Rosenzweig about our plans for 2018. Those plans included a verification feature to ensure cardholders are who they say they are. As of today, that feature is available to merchants who want to bolster their fraud defenses with another layer of security.
