TransCreditCard supported implements hi-tech services from Mastercard for TransCreditBank with help from Compass Plus

TransCreditCard logo eTransCreditCard, the processing centre of one of the largest commercial banks in Russia, TransCreditBank, has launched EMV credit cards with Mastercard PayPass, the innovative contactless payments technology, using state-of-the-art software solutions from Compass Plus.

TransCreditBank Gold Mastercard credit cards with PayPass technology will enable customers to pay for purchases and services faster and more conveniently than with standard magnetic stripe or chip cards. Making payments has never been more simple or secure - the customer simply taps their card on the terminal’s card reader removing the need to pass the card to a cashier. If the total purchase amount is less than 1,000 RUR, there is no need to enter a PIN or sign a receipt.

Contactless payments with Mastercard PayPass technology can be made in retail establishments equipped with PayPass-enabled terminals, for example, at BP gas stations in and around Moscow and at Aeroexpress ticket machines and offices. Mastercard PayPass cards are accepted by more than 440,000 retailers in 41 countries across the globe.

”Mastercard PayPass contactless technology provides faster and more convenient payments for cardholders, whilst using chip cards significantly increases the security of banking operations,” commented Alexei Kirichek, director of retail business support at TransCreditBank “Contactless payments are popular in many countries with an advanced card infrastructure and this technology is being actively developed in Russia.”

Certified by Mastercard in Internet acquiring using 3D Secure (SecureCode) technology, TransCreditBank was also successfully certified in the same program in April 2012 for card issuance due to the use of TranzWare e-Commerce - a comprehensive solution from Compass Plus that provides advanced and reliable Internet transaction authenticity checks.

“I am completely satisfied with our partnership with Compass Plus, which started more than 10 years ago. Its software solutions TranzWare Online, TranzWare Fraud Analyzer and TranzWare e-Commerce allow us to offer our customers services based on state-of-the-art technologies and provide maximum transaction security and reliability of service,” commented Kirill Sviridenko, CEO at TransCreditCard.
