Product: Instant eCommerce

Payment security and compliance solutions provider ControlScan recently launched Instant eCommerce, a secure, cloud-based service that delivers web hosting, a hosted shopping cart, mobile optimization and pre-integrated payment acceptance in a single platform. Offered as a turnkey solution through ISOs, the service is designed to help merchants build an online presence quickly.

"Instant eCommerce easily integrates into the service provider ecosystem and features everything their SMB merchants need to get started selling online - including mobile commerce - without the technological complexity and PCI-related concerns that can deter them," stated Joan Herbig, Chief Executive Officer of ControlScan.

Because it's built upon ContolScan's dynamic Hosted Payment Page technology, small to midsize businesses (SMBs) can use Instant eCommerce to rapidly deploy an end-to-end, secure, online selling environment that integrates easily with existing payment processors, the company stated. As a hosted, payment solution, the platform also supports multiple payment channels, including digital, mobile, MO/TO and e-wallet payments.

To keep it simple, ControlScan developed Instant eCommerce as a plug-and-play system with six easy to navigate templates for creating a seamless checkout experience, plus live support just in case. Features include extensive reporting capabilities and an administrative dashboard for managing orders, inventory and sales. Also built in are online tools for creating promotional, email and newsletter campaigns, and the ability to garner customer product reviews and ratings.

"Instant eCommerce makes an important contribution to online merchants as well as the payment organizations serving them," said Kevin Lee, President, Hosted Payment Solutions at ControlScan. "It's easy for the merchant to implement, and it effectively secures their online payments, making that part of their business PCI compliant without sacrificing brand equity or user experience."

Lee added that because Instant eCommerce is offered as a turnkey solution, payment service providers can add significant value to merchant relationships by offering the service cost effectively as part of a bundled pricing solution.

Another benefit noted is that the ability to integrate the Instant eCommerce white-label program with other payment gateways means ISOs can build brand continuity while simultaneously delivering a consistent and unique experience to merchants and consumers. ControlScan also pointed out that its expertise in Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard compliance can provide relief to merchant users when it comes time for their next compliance validation.
