ControlScan Integrates PCI Compliance into New E-Commerce Solution

May 3, 2013

PCI compliance provider ControlScan this week unveiled a comprehensive e-commerce solution aimed at small and midsize merchants that combines Web hosting, a shopping cart and a PCI-compliant hosted payment page. Instant eCommerce makes it easy on merchants to integrate and easy on ISOs to sell, according to Kevin Lee, president of hosted payment solutions for ControlScan, in an interview at the 2013 ETA Annual Meeting & Expo in New Orleans. Hosted payment pages usually have been a tough sell for ISOs, Lee told, because smaller merchants didn’t really understand their PCI requirements and mimicking the look and feel of existing merchant Websites was difficult. Pre-integrating a hosted payment page within an entire e-commerce solution offers clear benefits for merchants that ISOs can clearly communicate during the sales cycle.

Instant eCommerce is a turnkey, white-label solution that enables merchants to securely and simply begin selling online, Lee said. In a single platform, the HTML5-based technology quickly enables the merchant begin selling through sites optimized for both Web and mobile while ensuring PCI compliance.

“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,” said Lee, who came to ControlScan when the company acquired hosted payment technology provider CRE Secure. “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.”
