Ira Chandler


Hello, I am Ira Chandler.  Since 1993 when I wrote the first commercial Credit Card Software for the IBM AS/400, my companies have provided security, native RPG integration, cost-savings, and fanatical support...

Curbstone technology targets the payment processing needs of companies on IBM Power Systems running IBM i Operating System, aka AS/400, iSeries.

Click the 4 minute video below on Curbstone technology and our Seven Key Benefits: 


1. Security: is your credit card data security comprehensive, effective, PCI compliant, and easily documentable?

2. Integration: is your RPG-based Order Entry process seamlessly integrating payments for phone orders, e-commerce, and retail - in real-time?

3. Costs: are you paying the LOWEST possible FEES on your card transactions?

If you can't answer YES to all three, Curbstone has the software and services you need...

SIMPLE!  Implement our IPT for telephone and mail orders, PLP for e-commerce, and EMV for your retail sites.

Each technology is designed to ELIMINATE your systems touching the credit card data

All use our REMOTE TOKENIZATION to ensure you don't have to store or TOUCH card data.  Yet, we still support cards-on-file for returning customers, credits, and recurring billing.  And, you gain or retain seamless, deep integration to your Order Entry software.

 ?  Do you worry if your systems are really, truly PCI compliant?

 ?  Are you concerned that your payment data might not be handled as securely as possible?

 ?  Lacking a mature, validated Payments Partner who provides platform-specific guidance, and middleware?

We know your system!  Curbstone is the leading provider for the AS/400, iSeries, and now IBM i platform, and is an IBM Business Partner since 2002.  Our technology eases the pain of achieving, maintaining, and documenting PCI compliance. 

In most cases, Curbstone's C3 can remove ALL of a merchant's existing infrastructure completely from PCI SCOPE, increasing security!

Curbstone has achieved the highest possible level of security validation, being audited by third parties to the PCI "Service Provider Level 1" DSS standards. This is the same level of security scrutiny that banks must achieve.

Curbstone technology significantly reduces the burden of PCI Security Compliance (PCI DSS) and supports all standard industry security functions, CVV2, CVC2, CID, LI, LII, AVS, ECI, CPS, BIN table, and more...


Curbstone's technology, CorrectConnect (C3), is a NATIVE IBM i solution for phone orders, e-commerce, and retail card-present.  Our native APIs are simple, and written in and designed to be used by RPG language programs.

 ?  Need a more secure and efficient way to accept card payments by your phone Customer Service Reps?

 ?  Are e-commerce payments ISOLATED from your primary business computer, fragmenting data flow?

 ?  When customers present a card, is that segregated from the rest of your systems, complicating operations?



C3 Provides REAL-TIME card authorization seamlessly linked with your existing RPG Order Entry software.  This eliminates double-keying, and provides a real-time traceable link from the transaction through your current Order Entry and Receivables systems based on IBM i.

Even your e-commerce based on Linux or Windows will have real-time payment processing that is seamlessly connected to your RPG programs.

Delight your customers by providing credits, recurring billing, and Cards-On-File using our Remote Tokenization, across phone orders, retail, and e-commerce.


 ?  Ever compared the processing rates you pay with the rates you expected when you signed up?

 ?  Paying unnecessary authorization fees, settlement downgrades, or for non-support of Corporate Purchasing Cards LII and LIII?

 ?  Having trouble documenting your defense against customer chargebacks?

 ?  Are your transactions being downgraded because they are not submitted in a timely manner?

 ?  Do you cringe when you think of what it might actually cost to achieve/document true PCI compliance?
