Vantiv is one of the payment processing services used by Execu/Tech Systems

Each one of the items listed on this page is important. Please don't overlook or ignore them.


  1. Your Vantiv account must have "PASS" enabled. This is what allows card tokenization, a critical part of your credit card data security.

  2. To ensure that credit card tokens are maintained for an appropriate length of time, be sure that this line is added to the configuration file, MENUINI.FIL:

    ELEMENT-PURGE-DAYS=30,270

    The number of days can can be changed. This shows our recommended default of 30 days for Guest History and 270 days for everything else. 

    If this isn't done then credit card tokens will not be saved and cards that have been tokenized will have to be swiped again when used.

  3. Contact the Vantiv sales rep to determine the payment types you wish to accept. This is done during the merchant application process do make sure this is decided at the beginning of the process. 

  4. Configure all potential credit card types that might be accepted in the PMS or POS software. This will prevent unknown card types being seen in reports.
    The current list of credit card types accepted is
    • Amex
    • Carte Blanche
    • Diners Club
    • Discover
    • JCB
    • Mastercard
    • Union Pay
    • Visa
    • Other

      Carte Blanche, Diners Club, JCB and Union Pay are associated with Discover so if you accept Discover, the others are accepted by default.
