Comtrust, Etisalat’s Internet infrastructure subsidiary, is reinforcing payment security and easing integration headaches for cyber merchants in the UAE.

Comtrust has delivered a store payment interface (SPI) to its Secure Access Package service, enabling local e-commerce ventures to rapidly complete application integration.

“SPI provides a high-level interface for secure communication between an Internet Merchant’s Server and Comtrust Payment System,’ explains Omran Sultan Al Owais, general manager of Comtrust.

“It is an end user solution that greatly reduces the effort required on the customer’s part to integrate a server with the Comtrust payment system for the secure authorisation and capture of the credit card transactions,” he adds.

SPI basically eases the integration between a merchant’s online applications and Comtrust’s payment service. Previously, Comtrust provided merchants with specifications, which the merchant then had to develop interfaces for.

SPI removes much of the integration hassle. For example, merchants will not need a functional understanding of the payment system, cryptography or socket programming.

“Only by simplifying processes, such as this, will we be able to ensure that the growth and success of e-commerce and online business within the UAE and across the region will continue,” concludes Al Owais.
