Hamilton, Bermuda (PRWEB) February 24, 2004
First Atlantic Commerce Ltd today announced the completion of MPI functional certification with MasterCardÃ‚Â® SecureCodeÃ‚Ã‚Â™ a global e-commerce security solution for Internet retailers and member financial institutions to authenticate cardholders when they use their MasterCard and Maestro credit and debit cards to shop online.
Ã‚Ã‚Â“FAC is implementing a turn-key, fully hosted 3-D SecureÃ‚Ã‚Â™ MPI solution for acquiring banks and merchants enabling rapid implementation of MasterCardÃ‚Â® SecureCodeÃ‚Ã‚Â™ solutions to immediately reduce consumer card fraud,Ã‚Ã‚Â” states Andrea Wilson, CEO, First Atlantic Commerce Ltd. Ã‚Ã‚Â“FAC hosts the 3-D SecureÃ‚Ã‚Â™ software on behalf of both the merchant and the Acquirer, so there is no software to purchase, license, or certify, by either the merchant or the bank,Ã‚Ã‚Â” adds Andrea Wilson, CEO of First Atlantic Commerce Ltd.
MasterCardÃ‚Â® SecureCodeÃ‚Ã‚Â™ solutions are available to any merchant and Acquirer in any jurisdiction as long as the Acquirer has signed up with MasterCardÃ‚Â® to offer 3-D SecureÃ‚Ã‚Â™ services. Merchant registration in MasterCard SecureCodeÃ‚Ã‚Â™ is available to merchants regardless of their current chargeback history and the decision to enroll a merchant is made by the Acquiring bank.
Ã‚Ã‚Â“MasterCard SecureCode offers Acquirers and Internet retailers an affordable solution that not only simplifies the cardholder authentication process, but also provides peace of mind that online card payments are fully guaranteed,Ã‚Ã‚Â” said Steve Orfei, senior vice president and head of MasterCard InternationalÃ‚Ã‚Â’s e-Commerce Center of Excellence Ã‚Ã‚Â“Guaranteed payments also allow Acquirers to further benefit from the costs savings associated with reduced chargebacks.Ã‚Ã‚Â”
Merchants can take immediate advantage of FACÃ‚Ã‚Â’s MasterCard SecureCodeÃ‚Ã‚Â™ solution once their acquiring bank has signed up with MasterCardÃ‚Â® for SecureCodeÃ‚Ã‚Â™ and designated FAC as their MPI software provider. Acquirer registration forms are available from First Atlantic Commerce or directly from MasterCard SecureCodeÃ‚Ã‚Â™. Implementation and benefits associated with FACÃ‚Ã‚Â’s hosted MasterCard SecureCodeÃ‚Ã‚Â™ solution are immediate once the acquiring bank has enrolled their merchant(s) with MasterCard SecureCodeÃ‚Ã‚Â™. Ã‚Ã‚Â“WeÃ‚Ã‚Â’ve designed MasterCard SecureCodeÃ‚Ã‚Â™ to be accessible to merchants quickly and conveniently and without any significant changes to their existing payment process,Ã‚Ã‚Â” states Andrea Wilson.
