Merchant Link to Launch an E-commerce Service

Merchant Link will offer two options to secure e-commerce transactions and online payments.


SILVER SPRING,Md., April 16, 2012 -- --  Merchant Link, a leading provider of payment gateway anddata securitysolutions, today announced that it is developing an innovative e-commerce solution for merchants to process payments securely in card-not-present environments.

Working closely with industry-leading partners, Merchant Link will offer two options to secure e-commerce transactions and online payments:

Both options will significantly improve data security while reducing PCI scope and costs by blocking merchant access to cardholder data, the encryption and decryption environments, and to key management operations.

"This offering reflects our ongoing commitment to expand the breadth and depth of our services to provide merchants with all the options, security, support and flexibility they need when it comes to payments," said Dan Lane, Merchant Link's President and CEO.

The new solution is expected to be available by the end of the year.
