ClearCommerce Corp. said its transaction processing systems have been certified to operate with VirtualNet, the electronic commerce gateway service of Vital Processing Services.

The connection with Vital, a merchant credit card processing company owned by Visa U.S.A. and Total System Services Inc., will let ClearCommerce customers avoid the cost of a direct leased line into the Visa network, said Gregg Gumbinger, business development manager for ClearCommerce's financial services division.

"No more lengthy lead times and hardware installations," he said. "The transactions are sent directly through the Internet to the virtual gateway."
