Pesapal Jumps Ahead of the Curve with 3D Secure, Security Comes First
As the digital commerce landscape continues to evolve in Africa, businesses are increasingly in need of a secure and reliable payment system that can facilitate seamless transactions from various sources.
Pesapal, a leading payment service provider in Africa, offers a comprehensive solution for businesses seeking to receive payments from diverse banks and mobile money providers in Uganda and around the world.
Recently, during the Pesapal Caffé Sessions webinar in Uganda, experts from the company shared valuable insights into the latest enhancements to Pesapal’s API 3 and fraud prevention features aimed at streamlining E-commerce business operations. Under the theme, ‘Enhancing Your E-commerce Business with Pesapal API 3 and Fraud Prevention’, Isao Otika, Technical Director at Pesapal Uganda, highlighted the new features that make Pesapal API 3.0 stand out in the market.
According to Otika, the Pesapal payment system’s ability to integrate with a diverse range of banks and mobile money providers is one of its most significant advantages. The system allows clients to use their preferred payment method, regardless of which bank or mobile money provider they use, eliminating the need for businesses to manage multiple payment systems.
In addition, the system is user-friendly and accessible via various devices such as computers, tablets, and mobile phones. This ensures that clients can make payments using their preferred device without compatibility issues.
Furthermore, Pesapal has introduced several modern languages such as Json, enabling developers to integrate from all platforms or programming languages more easily.
The company has also introduced better error messaging for both developers and customers, making integration easier while fixing and diagnosing any issues that may arise.
In addition to these improvements, Pesapal has introduced 3D Secure, an additional layer of security on top of normal card payments. This feature requires the card owner to enter a one-time pin or secret code to confirm their ownership of the card, reducing the risk of fraud. Otika emphasized that this extra layer of security creates a sense of trust between the payee and merchant, demonstrating that the business is committed to protecting its customers’ personal and financial information.
Compliance is becoming increasingly critical in the current business environment, with online merchants required to support 3D secure as a security layer in some regions. By default, Pesapal supports 3D Secure, ensuring that businesses remain compliant with regulators.
Lastly, Pesapal offers plug-ins that make it easy for both small and large business owners to access the latest generation of its API. The plug-ins are available on the Pesapal store and can be installed on applications to facilitate quick and efficient payment processing.
In conclusion, Pesapal’s enhanced API 3 and fraud prevention features are a game-changer for businesses looking to streamline their payment processing systems. With its diverse range of payment options, user-friendly design, and top-notch security features, Pesapal is a reliable partner for businesses seeking to grow their online presence.
