SIX Payment Services integrates American Express SafeKey

Zurich - 19 February 2014

As the first payment service provider in the German-speaking market, SIX Payment Services is now integrating American Express SafeKey® into its Saferpay payment platform. The unauthorized used of credit cards is prevented through verification of the customer’s identity. This further enhances security and trustworthiness while paying with credit cards on the Internet.

The boom in online shopping also has a shadow side: Cases of fraudulent transactions continue to unsettle users and merchants alike – resulting in costs. Through the cooperation with American Express, SIX Payment Services is enhancing protection and contributing to the reduction of fraudrelated losses. SafeKey is based on the industry-wide recognized 3-D Secure standard procedure. Online merchants already using the Saferpay payment solution from SIX Payment Services can quickly and easily activate SafeKey. The integrated merchant plug-in conducts the cardholder verification during checkout.

American Express SafeKey is an online card protection protocol that is used internationally. SIX Payment Services also supports the “Verified by Visa” and “MasterCard SecureCode” protocols.
