Boca Raton, FL (July 14, 2015)— Leading U.S. financial technology company, TouchSuite, has expanded the accessibility of its QuickBooks-integrated processing solution, Lightning Payments, to also include integration within QuickBooks Online, the world’s #1 small business cloud accounting solution.  As one of the only payment processors integrated with QuickBooks, Lightning was first introduced as an alternative processing solution for QuickBooks Desktop software early this year.  With today’s announcement, QuickBooks Online users can now also enjoy access to Lightning’s more affordable processing and advanced payment technology that eliminates the hassle of double data entry.

“Today’s small business owner requires tools and solutions that can provide flexibility and mobility when their business takes them away from the desk or on the road, which is why QuickBooks Online has become the best-selling cloud accounting solution on the market,” said CEO Sam Zietz.  “We too look to provide solutions for the busy, budget-conscious small business owner, and as a tool that will synchronize their entire financial and accounting process without the forced hand of high processing rates, Lightning is the ultimate example of such a solution.”

Lightning Payments appears automatically within the QuickBooks Online interface and features a full line of additional payment-related tools to enhance and expand the merchant’s transactional capabilities. The cutting-edge payment solution features superior credit card encryption, ensuring trustworthy consumer security, 100% PCI compliance, and 99.99999% uptime (5X9).  Users also receive access to a standard virtual terminal application, which can be accessed remotely and process credit, debit and gift transactions with the click of a button.  Additionally, Lightning Payments offers mobile POS access, e-commerce capabilities, and an innovative Gift Card Exchange (GCE) tool, which creates the first and only opportunity for customers to use unused gift cards from 100+ leading brands (i.e., Starbucks, Walmart, Macy’s, etc.) as payment for in-store purchases, right there at the register.
