As consumers rely increasingly on the Internet to make convenient and efficient payments, e-commerce merchants must take the proper precautions in making their payment processing system as secure as possible. If a customer’s credit card information is compromised and used for fraudulent activity, not only can the customer suffer from damaged credit and lost funds, but merchants can also be held responsible and end up paying hefty fines for the stolen data.
BluePay Hosted Payment Forms:
By providing hosted payment forms to e-commerce merchants, BluePay allows clients to accept credit cards for business while reducing liability. Upon time of purchase, merchants can send customers to a secure hosted payment form that mirrors the look and feel of their own website. The form, however, is hosted on BluePay’s secure server, meaning that the merchant does not have to store credit card information. By hosting with BluePay, clients can enjoy PCI compliance with increased security, and tokenization features which allow merchants to accept credit card payments online without ever having access to customers’ actual credit card number.
Convenient Credit Card Processing:
Besides the increased security benefits, merchants and consumers can also enjoy convenience with hosted payment forms. Customers can either choose to make a one-time payment or recurring billing, which gives them the ability to make weekly or monthly payments on a regular basis without having to fill out a separate form or write another check each time. Merchants can cut costs associated with paper mailing services and reduce the number of late payments.
