PSiGate Payment Gateway Implementation

The payment gateway that Merchant clients utilize is called the PSiGate payment gateway. ( Madgex's interface with the PSiGate payment gateway has been implemented in such a way so that the merchant does not ever touch, see, or store credit card data.

During the checkout process, at the point in which the customer will enter their credit card data they are forwarded to the PSiGate payment gateway. This is known as a redirect method of interface. However, unlike some redirected checkout processes, the PSiGate payment gateway offers merchants total control over the look and feel of the page. From an aesthetic point of view the end user experiences a seamless re-direction, resulting in a smooth and consistently branded checkout process.

Avoiding cardholder data is important because it increases security and reassures the customer, while at the same time helps to reduce transaction liability for the business owner. The liability is reduced because the client does not need to touch or store sensitive cardholder data. In effect, it bypasses many of the security concerns that must otherwise be dealt with when implementing an e-commerce enabled website. When using a redirect method of integration it is easier to achieve PCI compliance because the merchant can complete the shortened version of the self assessment questionnaire.

In addition, PSiGate includes free support for both Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode. Merchants can optionally choose to enable these features to better protect themselves against the possibility of fraudulent orders. If Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode is enabled a cardholder cannot claim that a transaction was an unauthorized use of their credit card. This helps to shift the transaction liability to the benefit of the merchant.
