DECTA and Entrust Corporation Launch a New 2-in-1 Payment Card Digitization & Processing Service

Share this post

DECTA, a global payment processing company, has announced launching a new Payment Card Digitization and Technical Payment Processing service in partnership with Entrust, a global leader in payments, identity and data protection. The new service combines DECTA payment processing with the Entrust Digital Card Solution (formerly Antelop). It is designed as a single point of contact for card-issuing financial institutions and enables payment card digitization, payment tokenization, and processing of tokenized transactions. 

Digital payments are a crucial part of modern commerce. Banks, credit unions and fintechs have to accommodate this shift in order to meet the expectations of their customers and partners, stay competitive and create new opportunities.

To provide the necessary range of services these institutions occupy a middle ground between card issuance, payment data tokenization, technical transaction processing, and infrastructure administration. This presents costly challenges.  For example, running an in-house payment tokenization and processing solution is expensive and complex, and historically there has been no single vendor that could provide all of these services, forcing banks and credit unions to juggle multiple third-party vendors.

The technology partnership between DECTA and Entrust provides a solution, offering a timely and cost-effective way for banks, credit unions and fintechs to provide cardholders a comprehensive digital card experience from a single technology source. 

The service provides full integration with Mastercard & Visa as well as multiple eWallets (Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay, and others). The solution is cloud-based with 99.9% SLA uptime and can be customized in various ways to meet client specifications. Features include clearing and reconciliation, fraud and dispute management and more, backed by a 24/7 customer service center.

”This service is not only a great collaborative effort, it is also an outstanding chance to support things we strongly believe in: innovation, fair competition and equal opportunities,” said Santa Kirsbauma, Board Member, Product Offering at DECTA.

“Through this technology alliance between Entrust and DECTA, banks, credit unions and fintechs gain the technology they need to deliver the digital card experience — access card digitization, payment tokenization, and tokenized transaction processing – without having to manage multiple vendors. Working side-by-side with the DECTA team, we are happy to help financial institutions succeed by providing them with a one-stop shop that enables a comprehensive digital experience for their cardholders,” said Timothée Grüner, Director of Business Development Digital Card Solutions at Entrust.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
