Heartland Partners with Acculynk for PIN Debit Authentication

March 3, 2011

Payments processor Heartland Payment Systems said it has partnered with Atlanta neighbor Acculynk to provide the software provider’s Internet PIN debit solution to Heartland’s e-commerce merchants. The companies said PaySecure is the first software-only service that enables a consumer to use his/her debit card and bank-issued PIN to pay for online purchases. “Heartland is always looking for new ways to help protect our merchants,” said Steve Elefant, Heartland’s chief information officer. “PaySecure authenticates that the consumer made the purchase which reduces fraud and charge-backs for merchants—saving them time and money. It is also user-friendly: it enables consumers to enter their PINs directly in the check out process without being redirected to another site or needing to enroll in a program. PaySecure is a valuable addition to our existing suite of security products.” Heartland said PaySecure will be available to its merchants in Q2 2011.
