WEBJET has unveiled a new ‘Rezpayments’ platform, developed in-house to facilitate the PCI-compliant handling of credit cards between various parties in the payment chain. The system allows an industry supplier or intermediary to easily implement a solution that captures the customer’s credit card data and directs it to Rezpayments where it is exchanged for a token, with the token stored in the user’s systems rather than the actual credit card information.
When the card is to be charged or used for other purposes such as fraud checking or to guarantee a car or hotel booking, the message is routed through Rezpayments and the token exchanged for the credit card number where it can be utilised as required. The customer’s credit card data never touches the client environment, so users do not have to seek their own Attestation of PCI Compliance. Rezpayments is now live in the Webjet online travel agency operation.
