Saf-T-Pay is a payments clearinghouse that allows non-credit card users and overseas shoppers to make online purchases directly through their local bank. As ecommerce expands into other markets, international shoppers without U.S. credit cards are closed out of online purchasing opportunities. These shoppers are starting to demand alternative payment instruments. Likewise, because of increases in credit card fraud, U.S. customers are more reluctant to disclose financial information, which is required to make secure transactions, over the internet. Saf-T-Pay provides a safe and secure alternative by acting as a centralized clearinghouse that allows current bank customers in various countries to carry out ecommerce transactions securely through their own trusted financial institution Â without the need for a credit card.
