Addressing a need for processing payments of digital products via web sites and mobile phones, Javien Digital Payment Solutions Inc. has launched the Javien New Payment Gateway.
“Our platform doesn’t just deliver the full breadth of technology needed to successfully sell music, movies and games-it also streamlines the entire range of merchant processes by providing a central management point for administering billing and customer care,” says CEO Leslie Poole. “When a merchant is encountering an issue with processing a purchase, it needs more from its payment processing partners than an e-mail form and a response 48 hours later. If the merchant is using our platform and payment gateway, it can access an actual person who will help address the issue as well as a way to track its resolution.”
The Javien New Media Payment Gateway, with payment processing handled through Optimal Payments Inc., provides authorization within three seconds for Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and Diners Club International credit cards, plus debit cards and electronic check payments. The gateway also includes fraud protection capabilities utilizing the 3-D Secure™ protocol developed by Visa.
The new payment gateway also handles PayPal accounts and multiple pricing models, including subscription and a la carte purchases of single digital files. Javien can also aggregate and batch transactions according to business rules to minimize transaction-processing fees, the company says.
