Seamless Integration 

The official Balance Magento extension offers B2B buyers and sellers a seamless, omni-channel experience. The Balance extension modifies your payments page to accept Balance as a payment method. You control which payment methods to accept, and which payment terms to provide, if any. To use this extension, you need to sign up for a Balance account.  There are no setup, monthly, or hidden fees.

Account & Pricing

To use this extension, you need to sign up for a Balance account. Transaction fees may be applied. For more information and to register, please visit the registration page. Upon checkout, Balance hosted checkout will be displayed to the customer. The customer enters his or her payment information directly into our secure environment so that no customer data is ever entered into, or stored on, the Magento server. For more information, see our privacy policy.

Security

We use advanced encryption technologies to keep your data and information safe in transit (using HTTPS with a RSA 2048 bit key and a signature algorithm of SHA256 with RSA) and at rest (data is encrypted using AES-256 encryption algorithm).

Your Payment Information

We use Stripe as a payment processor. We never store full credit card numbers or banking credentials anywhere on our platform - only tokens we securely send to Stripe.

When your buyers enter a credit card number, they are doing so within an iFrame and not directly in your site – this means no payment data is being entered or saved to your Magento server.

Our payment processing partner, Stripe, has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.

Balance meets level A Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ).

We might also use Plaid to collect your buyers banking information. Plaid uses TLS for all information exchanges between the Plaid API, financial institutions, and us. They also encrypt sensitive data-at-rest whenever they store it using AES 256 encryption at object and volume levels.
