X-Payments is a PA-DSS certified web-based payment application designed for merchants who accept credit card payments using background payment gateways listed in Appendix A and who require compliance with the PCI DSS standard. X-Payments can be used together with major shopping carts including:
While processing credit card payments, X-Payments works as an intermediary between a store on one side and payment gateways and 3D-Secure systems on the other side. See detailed explanation at X-Payments:How It Works and the diagram below.
Since October 11, 2013, X-Payments version 2.0 is available that is certified to the latest version of PCI Council’s standard, PA-DSS 2.0. On the list of PA-DSS certified applications on the PCI Council website, X-Payments 2.0 is listed as "X-Cart Payments":
With X-Payments 2.0 you can:
- Accept credit card payments from your customers via online payment gateways.
- Make your online store compliant with the PCI DSS standard which strictly recommends using only PA-DSS validated payment applications for accepting and handling credit card payments.
- Use "stored" credit card information for new orders, re-orders or recurring payments.
- Retain total control over the checkout process and avoid risky redirects by incorporating an iFrame credit card form in the store's checkout window.
X-Payments v1.0, the predecessor of X-Payments 2.0, is certified by PA-DSS 1.2 that expires in October 2013. Those who installed and started using X-Payments v1.0 can just continue doing so for any time ahead as it is acceptable for existing deployments. New deployments of X-Payments v1.0 are not allowed after October 28, 2013 due to the PCI Council regulations for PA-DSS certified applications, and we have already stopped selling this version.
