Interface/Technology: Ajax Payment API
Datatrans’s flexible payment service for PCI-compliant processing of online credit card transactions.
Datatrans’s Ajax* API is a brand new type of payment service offering retailers complete design freedom in the check-out process. Ajax technology gives retailers the freedom to design all the forms required for the payment process themselves. In contrast to traditional payment services, authorization and settlement take place via a stable server-to-server interface, virtually eliminating unauthorized debits.
Some payment methods require clients or card holders to identify themselves via a web form of the payment method provider’s. These methods include MasterCard SecureCode, Verified by Visa, Switzerland’s PostFinance and PayPal. However, in all these cases, only validation and password entry take place on an external form.
The Ajax API gives retailers full control over all the stages of the process described above. The process is fully PCI compliant, meaning that credit card details are sent directly from the browser to Datatrans.
Key advantages of the Ajax API
- Complete flexibility in graphical design
- Full control over all processes (alias generation, 3-D Secure status request, 3-D Secure password check, authorization and settlement)
- Fully PCI compliant
- Highly stable payment process (no unauthorized debits)
- Conversion optimization
Best of all, the Ajax API is included in all of Datatrans’s price models. All you need is an eCom Starter or Professional contract.
