As ecommerce websites move towards PCI compliance -- either by investing in home grown solutions or by migrating to hosted, PCI-compliant ecommerce platforms -- many businesses run into limitations associated with securely storing payment information when there is a need to perform additional transactions. To help businesses overcome these challenges, many of the major payment providers have started implementing Tokenization options into their systems.
3dcart, a SaaS ecommerce platform, has long recognized this problem and has leveraged Authorize.net’s Customer Information Manager (CIM) in an effort to offer payment tokenization to merchants and their shoppers while also offering innovative ecommerce add ons to 3dcart-powered stores.
The out-of-the-box CIM integration supports customer profiles that include billing and payment. With the shoppers' sensitive payment information being stored on Authorize.net’s secure servers, 3dcart allows merchants to simplify the payment process for returning customers. By using the Advanced Integration Method (AIM) during checkout, the ecommerce solution allows shoppers the choice of creating an account and generating a CIM customer profile; thereby allowing them to use the card on file for return visits. Furthermore, the CIM integration also grants merchants the ability to process future transactions as needed.
With CIM integration in place, ecommerce stores get access to the following features:
Working together with Authorize.net, 3dcart is effectively able to save e-shoppers time by providing a completely secure, streamlined checkout process. Additionally, ecommerce merchants are able to expand their services and offerings to their customers while maintaining PCI-compliance. None of this would be possible, however, without the help of Authorize.net’s Customer Integration Manager (CIM), a feature that is quickly becoming a must have for successful e-store owners.
