The Company is in the advanced stages of its Phase 1 product development, and its PCI DSS certification is nearing completion and will be done during November 2021.
On October 5th-2021, the PCT application was filed for the Securter’s 2nd Phase solution (received at the International Bureau). International Application Number PCT/IB2021/059140
The launch is scheduled for December 2021. The Company will provide its customers with the virtual queue management and payment service (1st Phase payment App) and is working with a product design and marketing agency for the launch preparations. Securter’s initial marketing campaign will encourage merchants to sign up to LineApp at no cost. Securter will introduce its Securter payment App to cardholders via LineApp, who will be invited to download the Securter™ Payment App to use for their online purchases.
Securter is developing a payment processing technology that dramatically reduces the security risks associated with online purchases. The Securter™ Payment App allows consumers to use their credit or debit card directly without having to manually input their confidential card information. Securter’s technology turns a consumer’s mobile phone into their own payment terminal (personal card reader/POS), allowing them to scan (Phase 1) or tap (Phase 2) their credit/debit card on their own phone. After successful completion of the development and certifications of Phase 2 cards would be deemed present (CP) for the online transaction the same way they are when tapped in-person (in-store), allowing merchants to capture electronic data stored on the card and verify the transaction.
Securter expects revenues to commence after the 1st Phase launch and successful Beta Testing is completed. The Company anticipates revenue to grow monthly and further ramp up after Phase 2 (Target Q2-2022). Phase[JR1] 2 will feature the ‘Tap’ and personalized “PIN” added to the technology.
According to the Nilson Report, the leading global card and mobile payments trade publication, by 2023 total credit, debit and other payment card transaction volume is projected to reach $57 trillion. At the same time, gross card fraud is projected to reach $35.67 billion. The addition of EMV chips to credit cards along with EMV card readers (originally developed by Europay, Mastercard and Visa) made credit cards less susceptible to fraud when the physical card was present.
The Securter payment and online user authentication platform is based on processing of EMV chip technology embedded in credit and debit cards. The technology has been adapted to extend the EMV technology (currently intended for physical Point of Sales/POS) to secure EMV online payments. Securter’s technology leverages the EMV security features offered when a physical card is present (CP) in-store and may make it possible to turn online purchases into card present transactions. The Software application (protected through patent=pending application) transforms a consumer’s smartphone into a personal card reader or POS Terminal. On October 5th-2021, the PCT application was filed for the Securter’s 2nd Phase solution (received at the International Bureau). International Application Number PCT/IB2021/059140
Criminals quickly moved their counterfeit fraud transactions to those when a credit card was not present (CNP), for example online transactions over public WiFi or websites that store credit card information as part of their payment system. Securter’s payment platform and mobile application software design provides cardholders with a secure method of payment using their own mobile device and utilizing built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities to transform their phone into a payment terminal.
The Payment App (2 Phase) allows individuals to use their own phone to tap their credit card to complete a transaction removing the risk of a consumer manually inputting their confidential card information to a website or providing it over the telephone. When making purchases using Securter’s payment processing technology, customers retain control of their card and card data, reducing the security risk and cost per transaction for merchants.
Securter Systems, Inc. is developing proprietary, credit card payment platform to increase the security of online credit/debit card payment processing, globally. Securter 2 Phase technology reduces immense losses by financial institutions and merchants that arise from fraudulent credit card use. Securter technology also protects cardholder privacy by eliminating the need to distribute credit card details to multiple commercial 3rd parties, where such information is ordinarily stored, becoming vulnerable to theft or manipulation. Securter technology can and will be integrated into complementary payment methods and fintech protocols, including blockchain derivatives. Securter has internal R&D capability and management as well as external fintech business relationships to support the overall business mission.
