The new offering integrates the commerce platform designed by Payair, a Swedish company leader in the mobile commerce market, with a customisation solution supplied by TAS, supporting complex realities, such as the large-scale retailers, that require advanced automation of their purchase and payment processes. The platform will also adopt the TAS Multi- Acquiring Tool, to allow the management of different acquirers.
The new solution – based on QRCode reading – supports eCommerce transactions, proximity payments (NFC) and remote payments (i.e. via QRCode). The user can register his credit card and thanks to the Cloud architecture no sensitive data are saved on his smartphone and exchanged during the transaction. As a proof of the attention paid to the security issue, all Payair procedures and service centers are PCI / DSS certified.
The purchase takes just a few seconds to be completed: using the app users can scan a QR code specifically related to a product, a Merchant or a transaction, then safely finalise the transaction by entering a proprietary PIN.
