Edgil Payway

Edgil payway® is a robust, cost-effective payment solution that lets you focus on driving your business rather than being distracted by payment processing.

The payway system is a trusted, cloud-based gateway that provides circulation and advertising systems with a single interface to all payment processors, including Visa®, MasterCard® and direct to American Express®. The payway system provides a connection between your system and processor, offering complete support through a fast and secure network. By using a cloud-based service, you save money by eliminating the need for required hardware, reducing exposure from system back-ups and minimizing the need to monitor PCI compliance.

The payway solution offers a full suite of features that include:

  • Simple pricing with no set-up fees, tokenization storage fees or batch fees
  • Per transaction charges that are 20% below well-known competitors
  • PCI compliant certification
  • Automated Level III processing
  • Account Updater
  • A hosted payment page
  • Complete tokenization reduces your risk because credit card information is stored in Edgil’s Data Vault and not on your systems
  • A seamless interface in your work environment for real-time response from any system to any credit network via the Edgil gateway
  • ACH payments
  • Freedom to choose your preferred merchant provider or opt for an integrated solution with Edgil’s Evolve merchant services
  • Optional Point-2-Point Encryption (P2PE) feature that reduces risk and PCI DSS compliance requirements by encrypting cardholder data at the Point of Sale or Point of Entry

At Edgil, we know that recurring payments and expired credit cards don't mix, which is why we offer Account Updater. It is designed to relieve the headache caused by having to manually update credit card data.

Edgil routinely queries the Visa/MasterCard systems to obtain updated expiration dates, account numbers, and open/closed account status, then applies the new information to the payway® vault.

Account Updater eliminates the time-consuming process of manually updating account numbers and expiration dates. No matter how long it’s been since you acquired a customer, you can rest easy knowing that Edgil’s payway vault contains the most accurate card data to expedite invoicing and secure your receivables.


Q. What is payway?

A. Edgil payway is a trusted, cloud-based gateway that provides merchants with a single interface to all major payment processors. Payway provides a connection between your Newscycle system and your processor, offering complete support through a fast and secure network. By using a cloud-based service, you save money by eliminating the need for hardware, reducing exposure from system back-ups, and minimizing the need to monitor PCI compliance.

Q. Is payway PCI compliant?

A. Yes, payway is a certified gateway with Visa and MasterCard. The payway system encrypts cardholder data at the point of entry, with the hosted payment page eliminating all unencrypted data from the newspaper environment. If the credit networks are aware that a merchant is storing credit cards in a non-PCI environment, they may increase fees or even shut down the merchant. By moving to payway, the newspaper moves away from a premise-based credit card interface, which not only improves data security, but also removes the local system from PCI certification scope.

Q. How does payway work with Newscycle Solutions?

A. Newscycle transactions use the payway hosted payment page. The Newscycle system sends initial transactions to payway to be tokenized using the hosted payment page. The information is then entered into the hosted page, and payway returns a token to Newscycle to be stored for future recurring transactions. Recurring transactions are streamed from Newscycle to the hosted payway system. These transactions are sent to the payway system with the pre-designated token representing the credit card information. The token is a unique identifier that is only relevant to the payway system.

Q. What is involved with the conversion from my current payment processor?

A. Edgil has converted well over 100+ accounts from various sources (e.g., Braintree, First Data and Authorize.net). These conversions have included systems that have already been tokenized and systems with only the raw credit card data.

The steps to tokenize include:

  1. Get Existing Accounts and Tokens (if applicable); Coordinate with existing payment processor or system to provide an initial test file containing account information.
  2. Import accounts into payway; Run Edgil task to import the accounts into payway generating a result file containing tokens.
  3. Update Newscycle system; Test import of the token mapping to the Newscycle system to replace old (Braintree) tokens with the new payway tokens.
  4. Validate Token Conversion; Test transactions using the new tokens and checking proper routing of tokens to accounts in payway.

Q. Do I need to get new merchants if I convert to payway?

A. No, you can continue to use your current merchants and end bank. However, if you choose to change merchants, Edgil’s Evolve division offers merchants at extremely competitive pricing. Edgil is affiliated with TSYS and First Data to provide merchants for processing.
