MasterCard company DataCash and Session Digital, a Magento Enterprise partner, have jointly launched a DataCash module allowing merchants using the Magento platform to benefit from secure international payments.
Magento is an electronic commerce (ecommerce) platform used by over 100,000 merchants globally with a high degree of flexibility and control over the user experience, content and functionality of their online store. Magento Enterprise enables mid-to-large-sized merchants to build and run fully functional online stores.
Merchants will benefit from the ability to accept secure, international payments through DataCash’s robust payment gateway which processes over one billion transactions each year and prevents over £1m of attempted fraud every day.
The payment extension will also allow connectivity into:
- Country specific fraud and risk management.
- Multiple integration options (hosted pages service, hosted card capture and direct integration – application programming interface (API)).
- Recurring payments.
“The new module combines a high-end ecommerce platform with the industry’s leading payment service, thus providing merchants with end-to-end solution, which not only helps to reduce operational costs, but can also enhance the holistic customer experience,” said Ajay Bhalla, president at DataCash.
Data from Swift’s latest RMB tracker shows exceptional growth in RMB adoption in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), witnessing a 210.8% growth in payments value of the currency since August 2014, albeit from a low base.
A recent Gallup poll found that respondents identified the 'economy in general' as their biggest concern.
Sentiment in the financial services sector deteriorated in the three months to September, as firms digested the challenges of lower interest rates and the uncertainty caused by the vote to leave the European Union (EU), according to the latest CBI/PwC Financial Services Survey.
However, a London summit on the industry’s introduction of the technology cautions that testing and acceptance are still at an early stage and firms should proceed with caution.
