Optimal Payments (OPAY.L), a leading online payments provider, announced today the integration of its Netbanx payment gateway to Rona's new e-commerce Website.
RONA, a national chain of home renovation superstores, recently launched its online store allowing customers to purchase items online or reserve them for in-store pick-up.
Consumers shopping on the RONA website can create an account, which can be used to facilitate subsequent purchases, or make a one-time guest purchase. A hosted-payment page, imbedded into the checkout process and using iFrame technology, allows them to enter their credit card information directly into the NETBANX, PCI DSS compliant environment. This significantly reduces RONA's PCI exposure and liability during the check-out process.
The NETBANX solution complements RONA's acquiring relationship with Desjardins Group to offer Visa, MasterCard and RONA's private label credit cards as payment options. To minimize fraud losses, all transactions are verified using NETBANX fraud detection and protection tools including cardholder authentication, CVV validation and 3D Secure verification. The NETBANX back-office suite provides RONA with comprehensive reporting including data by card type.
Linda Michaud, Vice President, Information Technologies at RONA mentioned that "Using the NETBANX gateway to process payments from its e-commerce site allows RONA to offer multiple payment options, minimize our PCI compliance requirements and reduce our fraud exposure."
"We are thrilled to be Rona's e-commerce partner", said Martin Leroux, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing. "This relationship with one of Quebec's premier brands is part of our on-going goal of providing reputable local and international companies with A to Z customized payment solutions."
