Hostway and CardinalCommerce Partner to Provide Secure Online Shopping
Hostway offers CardinalCommerce's Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode
online fraud protection programs with their ecommerce tool, Merchant Manager
CHICAGO, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Hostway Corp., a leading provider of Web hosting and managed services, is excited to offer its customers a new tool that will provide their online shoppers with a great sense of confidence and security while shopping on their online store. Hostway has partnered with CardinalCommerce, a provider of services for securing electronic and wireless commerce, to offer Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode to ecommerce hosting customers who use Hostway's Merchant Manager shopping cart. Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode are rapidly growing programs that offer an extra level of protection to enrolled Visa and MasterCard cardholders. This is achieved by requiring them to enter a password or PIN when making online purchases with participating merchants. "Hostway strives to offer innovative products to our customers that help make their online businesses more successful. Running an efficient, secure online shopping experience for their customers should be a priority for any merchant and we are excited to partner with CardinalCommerce to offer just that to our customers," said John Lee, VP of Marketing at Hostway. These fraud protection programs benefit both merchants and their customers. It's 100% free for cardholders to enroll in these programs through Visa and MasterCard, and provides consumers the reassurance that even if their credit card number is stolen, it cannot be used for fraudulent purchases on participating ecommerce sites. Merchants that choose to participate will benefit from a nearly 70% reduction in chargebacks that stem from disputed (often fraudulent) charges. This benefit of 'chargeback blocking' is automatic, and protection applies to both US and international transactions. "Sites that offer Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode are very attractive to customers because they add an extra level of security to online purchases. It also reflects well upon merchants because offering these programs indicates that they care a great deal about their customers' welfare," said Kendall Myles, Senior VP of Merchant Services at CardinalCommerce.
