Joint Electronic Teller Services Limited (JETCO) proudly collaborates with CyberSource, a Visa Inc. company (NYSE:V) and one of the world's largest providers of eCommerce payment management services, to capture the growth opportunity in eCommerce and reinforce JETCO as a one-stop provider of eCommerce payment solutions for consumers, businesses and merchants.
This agreement helps financial institutions in Hong Kong and Macau to expand their merchant acquiring businesses for online merchants and offer them the latest popular payment options including digital mobile payment options like Visa Checkout and in-app purchase.
This agreement enables the two companies to leverage on one another's complementary strengths. As a result of coupling JETCO's extensive bank network and local industry expertise with CyberSource's world class eCommerce payment platform, the JETCO payment gateway service now caters to the largest range of Hong Kong and Macau online businesses by offering various types of card and alternative payment options in a fast and secure manner. This agreement will also allow JETCO to offer enhanced online payment security featuring CyberSource's payment tokenisation, as well as rich fraud analytics and real time fraud detection via CyberSource Decision Manager. These value added services will further ensure lower fraud risk and streamline the checkout process, while consumers can enjoy a quick, secure and hassle-free eCommerce online payment journey.
As part of the collaboration, JETCO's eCommerce merchants will eventually benefit from CyberSource Decision Manager, which features the World's Largest Fraud Detection Radar to screen transactions against insights from over 68 billion transactions processed by Visa and CyberSource annually.
Teresa Wong, Head of Market Development, CyberSource Asia Pacific, said: "Consumers in Hong Kong are tech savvy and more connected than ever with internet penetration standing at 79%, while eCommerce is on the rise with mobile shoppers making 23% more purchases on the go. Hong Kong's digital commerce space has immense growth potential and merchants are increasingly looking to tap into the growth opportunity in this space.
