  • eCOM Tokenizer of G+D and Netcetera to secure online shoppers’ privacy
    and boost e-commerce businesses.

Tuesday, 26 September – GPE (Global Payment Europe) and the e-commerce payment expert, Netcetera, are forging an even stronger alliance to elevate the shopping experience for countless customers across Europe and strengthen the trust in the online payment ecosystem. By introducing the beneficial payment technology, network tokenization, powered by Netcetera and the global security technology group, Giesecke+Devrient (G+D), GPE affirms its commitment to remain at the forefront of payment innovation.

Network tokenization is a technology that ensures merchants and consumers can use the latest developments in digital payments. On average, every merchant faces a 6% monthly expiration of their customer accounts, severely impacting the payment flows and the conversion rates. To increase the conversion by keeping the credentials always up-to-date and enhancing the security, GPE introduced card network tokenization using the innovative and award-winning eCOM Tokenizer of Netcetera and G+D. The eCOM Tokenizer acts as an aggregator service, seamlessly connecting GPE’s payment gateway, GP webpay, with token services offered by major card networks such as Mastercard Secure Card on File and Visa Token Service. It enables tokenization of the card data for all the Cards on file and Recurring payments. Top of FormBottom of Form
This step is expected to yield remarkable benefits for merchants, including a 3-5% increase in approval rates, primarily due to better risk scoring and approvals by card issuers. By securely storing and processing customer payment information, the eCOM Tokenizer solution significantly reduces the risks associated with fraud and data breaches.

GPE has witnessed a remarkable conversion rate improvement during the first weeks of operations. This improvement can be attributed to the automatic renewals of the card data in case of lost or stolen cards and the enhanced security features that have reinforced customers’ trust. “It’s our responsibility to offer our merchants and online shoppers a secure and seamless experience. Therefore, we once again turned to Netcetera and its card network service to safeguard the interests of our customers and end-cardholders. Together, we lay a solid foundation to future-proof our services against the evolving needs of the market and the online shoppers.” – commented Vaclav Kerka, Director of E-commerce Solutions at GPE.

Recognizing the importance of network tokenization, card networks have introduced financial incentives for processing tokenized transactions. Acquirers not adopting this technology will face performance fees for PAN-approved Authorizations.
The role of Network Tokenization in preventing false declines is undeniable, with market predictions suggesting that it will facilitate 85% of all global e-commerce transactions by 2028.
Peter Frick, Manager of Secure Digital Payment at Netcetera, emphasized: “It’s a privilege and an inspiration to serve a valued partner like GPE. As they continue to expand and thrive, so do we. Collaborating with forward-thinking partners like GPE allows us to push boundaries and gain fresh insights continually.” The partnership’s mission is clear: to elevate cardholders’ experience and pioneer innovative, reliable, and human-centric solutions that enhance every aspect of the online payment landscape.

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.

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.

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.
