Security Solutions


Our Account Updater product, 1stPayMaximizer, is very popular among our merchants, allowing them to update credit card information in an automated way, saving them time and money. Reduce the number of credit card declines and manual work of calling customers for credit card information. Let 1stPayMaximizer do the work for you.


It often takes staff many hours to call customers and get updated credit card information when a customer’s card info changes, such as with an expiring card. In addition, your cash flow can take a hit with declined transactions. Why not automate this process so you and your staff don’t have to worry about it?


  • Monthly updated credit card data done automatically
  • New information is entered safely and securely into the credit card vault, CompassPayVault, for future use
  • Recurring payments have fewer declines due to automatic card updates
  • You and your staff can focus on your core business while revenue keeps growing from successful transactions from recurring payments


It’s critical in today’s world to protect any and all credit card data used for transactions in your business.That’s why we offer a significant tool in protecting credit card transactions – Tokenization and Encryption. Our Point-to-Point, End-to-End Tokenization and Encryption converts credit card data to unreadable code that is resistant to fraud and data hacks. Data is then stored in our secure vault and tokenized so that the information is only accessible via a secure token. The data is decrypted only once it reaches its final destination.


With this secure process of handling sensitive credit card data, merchants reduce their risk and liability of this data being accessible and usable by hackers. Having this technology applied to each transactions lowers the risk of data breaches or security vulnerabilities that could cost tens of thousands of dollars, if compromised.


Enabling this technology with each transaction reduces the merchant’s scope when it comes to being PCI Compliant, allowing the merchant to feel confident in the security technology for each transaction processed. This reduction in scope can also save the merchant time and money by avoiding costly data breaches.


When you partner with 1st Wholesale, you get the backing of our internal fraud prevention team working for your business every day.

Once these are identified, we have a process in place to address or reject the transaction, allowing you to have peace of mind that any problematic payments are addressed. Our internal processes have resulted in fraud reduction across our portfolio of merchants keeping the merchant and card holder safe and secure.
