Update 9/18/2023: We've decided to postpone the deployment of the Zeamster Enhancements due to some issues encountered by wineries. We're addressing these problems and aim to roll out the updates on Wednesday, September 18, 2023, at 5:00 a.m. PDT. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

As part of our commitment to continually improving the winery experience, we are excited to announce enhancements to the Zeamster payment gateway. We have reprogrammed the entire payments integration to improve transactional reliability for WineDirect clients who use WineDirect Payments and Zeamster as their default payment gateway. This massive overhaul will bring new behavior, such as Zeamster credential validation, multi-merchant functionality, and a section to define a deposit account depending on its transaction origins. We've made several improvements and fixes to the payment processing system.

These features are only for WineDirect Payment customers with Zeamster as their default payment gateway. If you have any questions or want to switch to WineDirect Payments and/or Zeamster, please get in touch with WineDirect Payments.

Here are the key benefits: 

  • The EMV and VivoPay terminals now process payments more efficiently, which means faster transactions and less data sent 
  • We've added new features to prevent duplicate orders and to keep track of transactions more accurately 
  • The overall payment process has been improved 

And here are the bugs we've fixed: 

  • Duplicate and missing orders have been eliminated 
  • We can now retrieve the proper location ID 
  • Camera capture for purchases now works correctly 
  • EMV terminal timeout messaging fixed 

Deposit Accounts 

One of the additional features we added as a part of the refactoring project is the ability to select a specific deposit account for a transaction, depending on its origin. 

The way that deposit accounts function is that orders and transaction amounts from a specific source or origin will appear in a specified deposit account. Check out the documentation on deposit accounts here.

Please note that you do not need to perform any manual setup if you do not wish to change your default deposit accounts. We have selected a default deposit account for all transactions. Please change these settings at your own risk, as it can affect your internal accounting. 

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Use WineDirect Payments (FortisPay) with Zeamster as your default gateway
