360Works Releases Plastic 2, featuring a new low price, payment tokenization, check debits, subscriptions and more

ATLANTA – 360Works, a leading FileMaker product developer and innovator, is proud to announce the release of Plastic 2! The Plastic 2 plug-in for FileMaker makes it easy to process secure, SSL-encrypted credit card payments from FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Server, and FileMaker Web Publishing.

Plastic 2 (http://360works.com/plastic) can run charges and transactions with credit-card swipe readers, card-not-present accounts, direct check debiting, and much more. Plastic 2 also introduces powerful security features, such as profile based payments, to protect customer data.

Profile-based payments, also known as tokenization, save payment and customer information with the merchant provider instead of in your database. By keeping this sensitive data out of user’s solutions, obtaining PCI compliance is much simpler. Using 360Works Plastic, the database only stores a customer token that will process payments quickly and securely, without having to re-key or swipe card data multiple times.

Plastic 2 also can set up recurring billing to automatically charge customers on a schedule. Save the payment information straight to the gateway, not to the database, along with a specified time period and frequency. Bill customers on flexible, customized schedules, perfect for non-profit or donation campaigns. Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time.

With Plastic 2, accept electronic checks or direct debits with Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments. Supported with six gateways, this payment method will process a direct debit sale, void, or refund straight to a bank account.

Plastic 2 now supports 12 total gateways, giving users complete choice over which payment gateway to use. Plastic 1 supported Authorize.Net and PayPal PayFlow Pro. Plastic 2 introduces the following gateways as well: First Data, RealEx, Merchant eSolutions, Merchant Warrior, PayTrace, Moneris, USA ePay, InternetSecure, VirtualMerchant, and TransFirst.

Integrating all these new features, as well as Plastic favorites like card swipes, authorizations, and more, is made easier with a brand-new demo file that features scripts ready-made for any solution. Simply find the feature required in the list of scripts and copy it straight into a FileMaker store, point of sale system, eCommerce site, or even an in-house invoicing system. 360Works’ new documentation website, http://docs.360works.com, will also provide a great deal of guidance and includes instructions on how to implement each gateway and its features for a solution.

Plastic 2 is 360Works’ first 64 bit plug-in, meaning it will run in the custom web publishing engine in FileMaker Server 12. 64 bit versions of Plastic 1 and other 360Works plug-ins are coming soon and will be posted at http://360works.com.

With these features and improvements, now Plastic 2 is not only the easiest way to charge credit cards with FileMaker, it's also the most full-featured. Charge credit cards securely, knowing that Plastic 2 takes care of the work for you.

Plastic 2 is included with the 360Works Portfolio Bundle, which means that current subscribers will receive a Plastic 2 Enterprise License for free. It can be purchased separately as a $149 single user license, $195 Workgroup license for 10 users, or $695 Enterprise license for unlimited users and FileMaker Server / Web Publishing deployment. Upgrade pricing from version 1 is also available.
