TouchNet Marketplace eCommerce Tool

TouchNet is Harvard’s new standard for easy, cost-effective credit card payment solutions. It is a higher-ed specific ecommerce platform tailored to meet the unique needs of our schools, units, and departments. In addition to TouchNet uStores, Harvard is now offering uPay.

NEW! TouchNet uPay

TouchNet uPay is a new payment gateway standard to use with existing front-end systems that process events, non-traditional educational offerings, and other products and services. TouchNet uPay can be used as a replacement to CyberSource and offers several benefits.

Schools/Units can easily integrate with uPay through existing TouchNet Ready Partners. Starting in FY20, uPay will also be available via a custom API (application program interface). Learn more about uPay

TouchNet uStores

uStores enables departments to easily create, manage, and operate online storefronts that are connected to a secure payment gateway. uStores makes it possible for every campus merchant to quickly and easily offer products and services around the clock with minimal training. If you are currently using Certain Software to schedule your event, consider using uStores. Learn more about uStores

Benefits of uStore and uPay include:

  • Seamless, cost effective ecommerce solutions in a fully PCI compliant environment (reducing PCI scope for the School/Unit)
  • Automatically posts revenue to the General Ledger, eliminating the need for manual journaling
  • Reduces the collection of cash, checks and wires
