Cactus Commerce and IP Commerce Announce Partnership to Simplify Payment Acceptance for Retailers

13 January 2009

Cactus Commerce and IP Commerce, Inc. today jointly announced a partnership designed to add payment capabilities to Microsoft® Commerce Server. Leveraging each company’s expertise in their respective spaces, the partnership will deliver unique, value-added payment products to the market. The first outcome of this partnership is the launch of Payment Accelerator for Microsoft® Commerce Server 2007 and future releases. The software allows small and medium enterprise customers the ability to quickly and affordably integrate multiple payment connections with multiple service providers.

With the release of Payment Accelerator, Microsoft® Commerce Server customers can enable payments from their e-commerce solutions, offering deeper payment options across multiple payment providers. In addition, companies integrating payment options through Commerce Server Payment Accelerator (a PA-DSS certified solution) will be offered a quick path to demonstrating PCI compliance, addressing the often time-consuming and costly security mandates to protect customer payment data.

“Out-of-the-box integration with the Commerce Server Starter Site brings several benefits to users, including reduced time to market for new e-commerce solutions, increased flexibility of payment options and access to emerging alternative payment solutions,” said Dennis Velázquez, Cactus Commerce VP of Business Development. “Our partnership with IP Commerce enables us to address our clients and partners payments needs more quickly and simply than ever before.”

“Enterprise retail faces significant difficulty integrating payment options and demonstrating adherence to compliance regulations,” said Chip Kahn, IP Commerce CEO. “By augmenting Commerce Server with the addition of multi-payment connectivity we are able to provide retailers with a solution to provision payment options targeted to their specific customer base - effectively decreasing cart abandonment.”
