Secure Trading form relationship with Visa subsidiary CardinalCommerce, a global leader in authenticating e-commerce transactions

Secure Trading Group announced today that they will be deploying CardinalCommerce’s version of EMV3-D Secure. Cardinal Consumer Authentication will provide their merchants with an authentication solution to help comply with PSD2’s Strong Customer Authentication requirement. 

CardinalCommerce is a global leader in the authentication of Card-Not-Present transactions. For over two decades, Cardinal has been bringing merchants, issuers, and shoppers together in an experience where everybody wins. Cardinal’s expertise in technology and payment authentication brings added security to digital transactions, while reducing fraud and supporting digital commerce.

Secure Trading will connect to Cardinal through a JavaScript interface which can either be called by the merchant’s hosted payment page to complete transactions using the API, or via the Secure Trading hosted payment page to connect to Cardinal. Collaboration with Cardinal can help drive an increase in valid sales for Secure Trading’s merchants – aimed at reducing false declines at checkout and increasing buyer confidence. Most importantly, by using the latest fraud prevention methods, Secure Trading’s merchants can help ensure their customers can transact safely in the digital space. Cardinal’s technology-leading solution works on behalf of both card issuers and merchants to streamline the authentication process, making authentication fast and secure (with limited friction) across all devices.

By working together with Cardinal, Secure Trading help ensure that everyone wins: the consumer can purchase, the merchant can sell, and the issuing bank can distribute funds safely and securely – a happy shopping experience for all.

With an unrivalled 18 years of no downtime on their payment gateway, Secure Trading have reliability and security at the very top of their agenda when powering merchants’ payments.

“Working with the best companies in the payments industry is hugely important for us so that we can provide the best possible service for our merchants,” Kevin Dodson, Senior Vice President of Secure Trading added. “This collaboration will help ensure that our merchants can benefit from fewer false declines and fewer checkout abandonments, because we will have authentication embedded in the checkout.”
