State Bank of Mauritius (SBM) has employed Trintech’s PayWare MPI to provide payment authentication to SBM merchant customers. SBM’s existing PayWare eCommerce environment includes Trintech’s PayWare Acquirer Internet payment gateway, which processes card payment transactions on behalf of SBM web merchants. With the addition of PayWare MPI, SBM merchants will be able to offer Verified by Visa and SecureCode authentication services to their customers, giving them protection from online fraud losses, according to Trintech. The inability to identify the cardholder is a major cause of Internet card fraud, said Trintech. PayWare MPI uses the 3D secure protocol which permits issuing banks to confirm a cardholder’s identity by asking the cardholder to enter a password at the time the transaction is processed.
