Leading credit card processor BluePay increases payment processing security with advanced security solutions, helping businesses accept credit card payments with reduced risk.
Online PR News – 10-September-2010 – – CHICAGO - BluePay, a top credit card processing firm, is offering PCI compliant payment processing services for merchants seeking a secure, efficient and streamlined approach to accept credit card payments. With the increasing use of credit cards comes a strong concern for credit card security, as identity theft and credit card fraud become major issues across various industries. Thieves and hackers can break into networks, databases and even transactions in transit in order to access sensitive information. Credit card numbers are then used for fraudulent activity.
BluePay’s secure merchant processing solutions include tokenization, which replaces credit card information with a random number useless to thieves; end-to-end encryption (E2EE), which encrypts credit card numbers from the point of swipe to the point of authorization; address verification systems (AVS), which prompts cardholders to enter their address when making card-not-present transactions; and more. These security features take an extra step in making sure credit card information is safe, keeping consumers as well as merchants protected against devastating loss.
“PCI compliant security features are absolutely vital when accepting credit cards for business,” said Director of BluePay, Kristen Gramigna. “Not only are customers deeply affected by credit card fraud, but merchants are also held liable and can face hefty charges if they do not take the proper precautions to keep sensitive information safe. At BluePay, we are committed to providing merchants with secure credit card processing services that protect their business and their customers.”
Merchants can also prevent theft by understanding different types of fraud. For example, the ability to identify counterfeit credit cards can help avoid making fraudulent transactions. Other precautions include always requiring picture identification and a signature when accepting credit cards, or requesting card verification values (CVV) when accepting card-not-present transactions. Taking the safe approach to credit card processing can save a great deal of money, and utilizing advanced PCI compliant technology allows customers to trust your business.
