CardinalCommerce, Adaptive Payments Partner for PIN Debit Authentication

Dec. 20, 2010

Authentication companies Adaptive Payments and CardinalCommerce announced last week the integration of their platforms to facilitate the delivery of Adaptive Payments’ secure payment authentication services for e-commerce sales. As a result, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.-based Adaptive Payments’ e-commerce checkout product will be delivered as part of Universal PIN Debit Service—available to merchants that use CardinalCommerce’s Cardinal Centinel Universal Merchant Platform.  The partnership will enable merchants that use Cardinal Centinel to utilize Adaptive Payments’ secure payment authentication technology for online PIN debit transactions. Shashi Kapur, Adaptive Payments CEO, said: “The simple plug-and-play approach enabled by integrating Adaptive Payments’ 5DSecure technology with CardinalCommerce’s UPDS is seamless for merchants and consumers and presents a compelling value proposition by lowering the cost of payment card acceptance, reducing fraud and providing peace of mind to consumers, who can trust that their payment information is secure.”
