AssureBuy’s clients include Fortune 500 retailers, as well as small retailers, educational institutions, municipalities and associations. Its clients currently process nearly $1 billion in electronic commerce transactions annually.

AssureBuy will integrate the LiveProcessor payment processing software within its existing ASP platform. AssureBuy will target merchants that do not have transaction volumes to warrant a direct LiveProcessor installation or that do not want to manage and operate the software in-house.

LiveProcessor combines online, call center, retail and voice transactions into one system and integrates real-time authorization, batch processing and settlement functionality with existing order processing, subscription and electronic commerce systems. Retail Decisions clients include Buy.com, Netflix, ShopNBC and Tupperware.

Retail Decisions also announced this week that payment processor and credit card transaction acquirer Paymentech will incorporate Retail Decisions’ ebitGuard product into its OnGuard suite of Fraud Management Solutions. EbitGuard is an e-commerce fraud detection and prevention service. Other processors offering the service are Chase Merchant Services, First of Omaha Merchant Services, Feds First E-Commerce Data Services and Mosaic Software.

EbitGuard incorporates neural technology, with a number of other processes, proprietary databases, specialist risk analysts and card-not-present experience to provide a real-time risk assessment service.
