ACI Worldwide, a provider of real-time electronic payment solutions, has unveiled UP eCommerce Payments solution to simplify and expedite eCommerce payments for global merchants.
The SaaS-based solution includes plug-ins to all major eCommerce shopping cart solutions and relevant online payment methods for virtually any market.
The company said that its latest platform will deliver integrated payments and fraud capabilities (via a single sign-on).
The new platform will enable merchants to accept customers’ payments anywhere, anytime with easy integration of payment methods across multiple channels, and expedite shopper checkout with widget-based payment forms that embed within minutes, the company said.
It will also enable merchants to securely process payments with fully integrated, real-time fraud prevention and ‘all the time’ analytics supporting accept, deny and challenge rates.
ACI Worldwide chief product officer Mike Braatz said: "Because today’s consumers are dynamic and demanding, today’s merchants are under ever-increasing pressure to deliver optimal customer experiences or risk customer attrition. In order to succeed and gain market share in this challenging environment, merchants must make payments a seamless part of the consumer experience, a daunting task. UP eCommerce Payments makes eCommerce simple, global and secure."
Planet Payment Solutions president Paul Levine said: "To convert online shopper visits into sales revenue, merchants need to deliver a smooth customer journey every step in the purchase process, and the payment is the final link. Regardless of channel or country, removing friction from the payments process is integral to maximizing conversions — ACI has not only solved this issue for merchants, but has also helped PSPs likes ours to significantly grow our revenues."
The launch of the new solution is the realization of ACI’s eCommerce strategy, which began with the 2014 acquisition of Retail Decisions (ReD) and its solution for preventing and managing eCommerce fraud. ACI acquired PAY.ON and its global eCommerce payment gateway solution in 2015.
