PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- FreedomPay, the global leader in secure commerce technology for lodging, gaming, retail, restaurants, stadiums and other hospitality merchants, has announced the receipt of the Elavon UK certification for their Commerce Connect eCommerce and PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) compliant ePayments solution for the European market. This certification enables FreedomPay to securely process both ecommerce and card present transactions within the European market in partnership with Elavon, meeting the needs of retail, food and beverage and hotel merchants across Europe. The certification also extends to merchants who have U.S. and European locations, offering one consolidated gateway to securely process Trans Atlantic payments.
"In a time of considerable growth and innovation in the ePayments market, this partnership allows FreedomPay solve for a merchants' entire ecosystem by taking a best in class combination of eCommerce, card present and acquiring to multiple countries across Europe," said Tony Hammond, Managing Director, Europe, at FreedomPay. "We're thrilled to continue working with Elavon to make payments secure and simplified while always having the merchants and their consumers at the forefront of our mission."
This certification brings three main features to the European market; PCI-Validated P2PE, enabling contactless payments, and our multi-channel solution including Hosted Payment Page, Payment Information Proxy and Virtual Terminal. Having EMV and a PCI-Validated P2PE solution dramatically reduces the cost of compliance and provides greater business protection in the event of a data breach, along with enabling contactless payments allowing for high speed transactions, less time in line and an improved consumer experience.
Beyond faster, more secure payments, FreedomPay offers a multi-channel solution that manages merchant point of sale, web and phone payments, all in one. For ecommerce transactions, our Hosted Payment Page is a white-labeled responsive design solution for accepting user payment information, authorizing transactions, and returning a tokenized authorization. With FreedomPay's Payment Information Proxy, transactions and cardholder data from third party sites, like Online Travel Agencies, are captured and tokenized prior to entering a point-of-sale or property management system enabling merchants to maintain PCI compliance. FreedomPay's Virtual Terminal solution with PCI-validated P2PE secures card-not-present transactions for inbound phone and back-office transactions by removing sensitive cardholder data from network environments.
"There are no payment providers in the European marketplace delivering the level of security, functionality and service at the level of FreedomPay," said Tom Durovsik, FreedomPay Founder and CEO. "We currently support the industry leaders across hospitality, lodging, retail, stadiums and other verticals and look forward to advancing the state of commerce for European merchants."
The FreedomPay Commerce Platform is the best way for merchants to simplify complex payment environments. Validated by the PCI Security Standards Council for Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) along with EMV, Tokenization, Contactless and DCC capabilities, global leaders in retail, hospitality, gaming, education, healthcare and financial services trust FreedomPay to deliver unmatched security and advanced value added services. With broad integrations across top point-of-sale, device manufacturers and payment processors, supported by rapid API adoption, FreedomPay, the industry's first TransAtlantic payments solution, is driving the future of commerce and customer interaction.
