CRE Secure Announces Integrated Connection to Skipjack Gateway

CRE Secure Payments is a cloud-based Internet payment security company.


ATLANTA, Sept. 2, 2010 – CRE Secure, the industry’s first cloud-based, elegantly designed, secure payment solution for online merchants, announced today that its PCI-validated payment acceptance service is now certified to Skipjack’s payment gateway.

Through its innovative, HTML clone™ design, online consumers are redirected to CRE Secure’s hosted payment platform through a window seamlessly mirrored from within their trusted merchant’s web site.  Since visually, consumers feel like they never leave the merchant’s site, online merchants are able to maintain greater levels of branding continuity for their customers when processing ‘card not present’ transactions. This empowers merchants to better protect the investment in their web site’s design as CRE Secure’s service can be easily integrated with Skipjack’s payment gateway that services thousands of merchants in the U.S. and Canada.

“CRE Secure’s solution is a great fit for our merchants,” said Brad Hoeweler, President of Skipjack. “Our merchants are looking for PCI-validated solutions, and CRE Secure’s solution helps them do that in a way that doesn’t compromise the integrity of their brand or overcomplicate their solution.”

“We are committed to serving the needs of online merchants in helping them protect themselves and their valued customers from theft at the point of payment,” said Greg McGraw, CEO of CRE Secure Payments, LLC. “To that end, we have designed our patented technology from the ground up with merchants’ needs and preferences in mind. In working with Skipjack, its users now have direct access to a PCI-validated service that gives them increased flexibility and control over the payment process.”
