US-based Planet Payment has collaborated with ACI Worldwide to bring UnionPay International’s SecurePlus solution to merchants to accept UnionPay-branded debit and credit cards online.
Unlike UnionPay’s existing solution SecurePay that re-directs users to a payment page hosted by UnionPay for accepting card payments; SecurePlus solution facilitates the acceptance of both credit and debit cards without a re-direct to a UnionPay hosted payment page.
Additionally, SecurePlus supports transaction tokenisation and recurring payments, and can provide 100% protection from fraud charge-backs, a significant concern for merchants selling cross-border.
With the support offered by ACI and Planet Payment for SecurePlus, merchants can now price and sell goods in multiple currencies, such as Chinese Renminbi, Hong Kong Dollars, US Dollars and Singapore Dollars.
ACI Worldwide vice president for product line manager Wolfgang Berner said: “ACI Worldwide is excited to work with Planet Payment to be one of the first to bring UnionPay’s SecurePlus to market.
“This solution is a great benefit to our merchants – generating considerable interest in the travel and airline space – by helping them to more effectively access billions of UnionPay credit and debit cardholders with a seamless checkout process.”
