Actinic, the UK expert in ecommerce for small and medium businesses, today announces the release of a new card payment system, Actinic Payments, for Actinic ecommerce stores.
The service is powered by the Creditcall payment infrastructure, arguably the most robust and reliable in the industry, with 100% up time since 2005.
Actinic Payments enables small and medium businesses to meet the latest banking security standards at a very reasonable cost. It offers full Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Level 1 certification, across the board 3D-Secure compatibility and integration with all major banks.
Actinic Payments comes in a highly competitive range of price bands designed to suit different business sizes with differing order volumes.
Used with Actinic's award-winning ecommerce products, Actinic Payments provides high levels of efficiency for the merchant, with most common payment functions accessible directly from the order-processing application.
These include pre-authorisations, refunds, voids and additional payments -- all achieved without storing any payment card details in-house. The system also offers payment processing for mail order / telephone order (MOTO), providing a complete multi-channel payment processing system. Appropriate merchant accounts are required.
According to Actinic CEO Chris Barling, "With the introduction of Actinic Payments all Actinic merchants now have access to a one-stop shop where any technical or operational issues can be resolved with a single phone call.
Yet the service is very cost competitive while offering easier order and payment processing. We are convinced that it will be a winning formula, and this certainly seems to be the case based on our early discussions with customers."
For Creditcall, CEO Peter Turner comments, "We are very pleased that Actinic chose us as their payment partner. From the beginning of the discussions, it was clear that Actinic intended to offer a service that was superior to anything comparable, which fitted well with CreditCall's established policy of providing customers with the best solutions available. The partnership will allow Actinic's customers to benefit by having affordable access to a world-class payment gateway."
