ControlScan Introduces Instant eCommerce Solution to Electronic Transactions Industry

Hosted platform gives payment service providers a secure, end-to-end online merchant solution to extend the value of their payment gateway, build competitive differentiation

NEW ORLEANS, Apr. 30, 2013 - ETA Annual Meeting & Expo – Payments security and compliance solution provider ControlScan today announced that it has developed a fully-secured, cloud-based service that combines Web hosting, a hosted shopping cart and pre-integrated payment acceptance to make selling online simple. But they didn't stop there: Utilizing their Payment Card Industry (PCI) expertise, ControlScan included everything an online merchant would need to quickly and easily validate PCI compliance. The solution, called Instant eCommerceSM, is ideal for payment service providers seeking an innovative, white-label service they can attach to their payment gateway as a value-added offering for small and mid-sized merchants.

Atlanta-based ControlScan is officially introducing its newest hosted payment solution this week at the Electronic Transactions Association (ETA) Annual Meeting & Expo in New Orleans. Leaders representing all areas of the payments industry recognize the annual ETA event as an important forum for networking, education and idea exchange.

"ISOs, acquirers and payment service providers who attend the annual ETA conference are looking for smart ways to increase competitive advantage and improve merchant relationships," said Joan E. Herbig, CEO, ControlScan. "Instant eCommerce easily integrates into the service provider ecosystem and features everything their SMB merchants need to get started selling online—including mobile commerce—without the technological complexity and PCI-related concerns that can deter them."

Since its acquisition of hosted payment technology provider CRE Secure last summer, ControlScan has been busy making product advancements that deliver leading-edge secure hosted payment solutions to be white labeled by well-known payment service providers. The company's PCI-compliant Instant eCommerce solution builds upon its dynamic Hosted Payment Page technology to create an end-to-end, secure online selling environment that seamlessly connects to established payment processing gateways.

Instant eCommerce benefits include:

  • Single-platform solution for Web hosting, hosted shopping cart, mobile shopping site and pre-integrated, PCI-compliant payment acceptance;
  • Seamless support of multiple payment channels, including digital commerce, mobile, MOTO and eWallets;
  • Thorough payment data security for PCI scope reduction and hassle-free compliance validation;
  • White-labeled integration for brand continuity as well as a consistent merchant and consumer experience; and
  • Plug-and-play simplicity to reinforce the payment service provider's business value and build merchant loyalty.

"Instant eCommerce makes an important contribution to online merchants as well as the payment organizations serving them," said Kevin Lee, president, Hosted Payment Solutions, ControlScan. "It's easy for the merchant to implement, and it effectively secures their online payments, making that part of their business PCI compliant without sacrificing brand equity or user experience. And because it's a turnkey solution, Instant eCommerce represents a simple, cost-effective way for payment service providers to add significant value to their merchant relationships."

ControlScan is demonstrating Instant eCommerce today through Thursday in booth 250 at the ETA Annual Meeting & Expo.
