Core Features

Virtual Terminal

Turn your computer into a powerful payments portal. Key in payment details received from customers over the phone or through mail via the secure, PCI Compliant portal in your web browser. Apple Pay and Google Pay supported.


You get detailed insight into transactions and powerful search tools to quickly find what you’re looking for. Smart search empowers you to filter results by transaction amount, transaction type, transaction date, customer name, card number and more.

Electronic Invoicing

Create customer invoices with just a few clicks and collect payments quickly, easily and securely. Customers are emailed their Electronic Invoice, click the secure link and then remit payment immediately using the payment method of their choice. Receive instant confirmation that payment has been rendered. Once you go paperless, you will never want to go back.

Product Management

Enter and manage product SKUs and keep inventory organized with our unified product database. Create templates for common combinations of products to use with eInvoicing.

Customer Vault: The Secret Ingredient

Make paying fast, easy and fun. Delight your customers and easily reuse their cardholder data or “token” from previous transactions without having to store or secure it. The token can be used for future transactions without the cardholder data being re-entered.

Whether a payment is made in-store, on a mobile device, online or in a self-service setting, our unified Customer Vault delivers a superior payments experience by ensuring customer payment data follows them over time.

Tokenization gives you valuable insights about customer buying behavior over time by tracking token use. Merchants manage their business across multiple payment methods and provide customers the modern experience they expect.

Encrypted cardholder data has no value if stolen because only Tidal Commerce can decrypt the data. Our PCI P2PE solution means developers, ISVs and VARs have a powerful tool that helps protect their merchants from breaches.
