Online Debit: Selling Convenience (And Trust)

Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 06, 2011

In new research, Online Debit: Selling Convenience (And Trust), Mercator reviews the range of consumer online payment activity through the filters of new technologies, merchant focus on product expansion, and the role trust and security play at the point of purchase.
The electronic payments evolution that’s driving investments into mobile wallets and NFC-enabled devices is also placing added pressure on the debit card programs of traditional retail financial institutions. Everyday purchases, long the core base of debit card transactions, are being enabled online by merchants offering an increasing number of consumable items (such as groceries) with all the shipping and purchasing conveniences consumers expect in the online experience.
Merchants are tying together online and offline buying experiences through web and mobile-enabled application to enable convenient “one-click” buying experiences. At the same time, merchants can incentivize consumers to pick one payment form over another through discounts and other promotional programs.
Highlights of this report include:
The role of signature and alternative debit forms in online payments.
An overview of new online debit technologies being introduced in the market.
Profiles of consumer demographics most likely to drive increased online spend within everyday item categories.
An analysis of the potential impact of merchant’s expansion into grocery, pharmacy, and other daily commodity categories to the debit market, as well as their influence over payment types.
A discussion regarding the importance of issuers building an expanded view of how consumers use their depository accounts to protect and grow their retail banking franchises.
A review of the impact of risk management for issuers and consumer’ concerns about protecting their cash accounts on online debit payments.
“Consumers’ ability to access the Internet through an ever wider variety of untethered devices makes the ability to transact at will a de facto requirement for more and more transactions. Our research indicates that everyday spend transactions, those lying at the heart of the debit market, are being enabled online or through online/offline combinations by most of the largest retailers in the United States.,” Patricia Hewitt, director of Mercator Advisory Group’s Debit Advisory Service comments.

Veritec and National Identity Solutions (NIS) Sign Significant License Agreement Entering Into a $500 Billion Marketplace

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn., Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Veritec, Inc. (OTC –VRTC) today announced the signing of a Partnership Agreement with National Identity Solutions (NIS) of Norcross, Georgia. Ronald G. Logan, CEO of NIS, stated, "The partnership with Veritec is estimated to bring in hundreds of millions of dollars to both Veritec and NIS in 2012 income streams."

Van Thuy Tran, CEO of Veritec, states, "Veritec has state of the art patented identity and mobile cards technologies, and NIS has the identity recovery knowledge and knowhow plus a powerhouse marketing and sales team along with an established customer base.  This agreement is an important addition to Veritec technology that will be the cornerstone of secure identification for financial transactions while reducing complexity and costs. Veritec is pleased to enter into this strategic partnership with National Identity Solutions. We are the perfect fit for each other."
Tom Look, Veritec CTO and former 3M Scientist and Senior Business Development specialist, stated, "The combined technologies offer consumers new levels of comfort provided by the wall of security surrounding their financial accounts. There is no better, highly secured, two-dimensional code available in the market than the VeriCode® and VSCode® that can hold up to 4500 bytes of data within one single code."
"One out of every 10 consumers is a victim of identity theft according to consumer reports and 43% of all identity theft is the result of lost or stolen wallets or personal documents. The agreement combines for the first time several unique fraud and identity theft protection features into a consumer debit/credit or ID card, and the card will also reduce fraud for merchants and banks," saidSam Rollins, VTFS President and former Senior VP of Global Information Security for Visa USA. Mr. Rollins also added, "Our proprietary payment platform, featuring the blinx On-Off™ card program, separates us from any existing financial cards in the market today." The key feature that provides the unique level of security for the card is the ability to instantly activate or deactivate (Toggle) the card on or off via text, phone or web. When the card is off it cannot be used.
According to Ronald G. Logan, CEO of NIS, "The combined features of the new card will significantly lessen the likelihood of the cardholder becoming a victim of identity theft, the nation's fastest growing crime. Identity theft related to new and existing credit is less than 15% of reported identity theft cases. The identity theft protection provided for the cardholder and their household includes all 49 identity theft types through 24/7 live assistance by certified professionals. Our technology and propriety processes enable retrieval and restoration of a victim's identity up to three times faster than competitors."
In addition to security, cardholders receive real time financial transaction notifications, elimination of overdrafts, complete access to and control of the card's financial account, subordinate cards, and real time account transfers, all using simple mobile phone or web commands. Both companies will market the new cards with the combined technology features for credit/debit cards, ID cards, payroll cards and gift cards.  
These cards will also have Veritec's 2D VSCode® technology so that the cardholder's biometric identification such as fingerprint or picture are fully contained within the code.

Visa Survey Says "Smart Spending" is the Theme This Holiday Season

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Smart holiday spending is top of mind according to this year’s Visa Gift Giving Survey commissioned by Visa Inc. (NYSE:V). 58 percent of respondents say a holiday budget will be in place before they begin shopping this season – 10 percent more than last year. When asked how their holiday budget will compare to last year, only seven percent expect to have more to spend this year, while 31 percent will have less to spend.
“Putting financial control back into the consumer’s hands is important during the holidays.”
As consumers keep an eye on spending, 51 percent of respondents believe that giving a Visa Gift card would help them stay within their holiday budget.
Respondents are also happy to receive gift cards and would prefer them over other gifts.
  • 78 percent of survey respondents said they would rather receive a Visa Gift card than a gift card for a specific store or restaurant.
  • 59 percent of respondents would prefer to receive a Visa Gift card over a gift like clothing or an item for the home such as a picture frame or candles.
“Visa Gift cards can help shoppers keep a close eye on holiday spending, while allowing recipients to purchase what and where they want,” said Lisa McFarland, head of consumer prepaid products, Visa Inc. “Putting financial control back into the consumer’s hands is important during the holidays.”
Gift cards put the recipient in control, giving the choice to buy something practical or indulge. When survey respondents were asked how they would use a Visa Gift card if they were to receive one this holiday season, the top three responses were:
  • To indulge in something they might not normally be able to afford, such as a special dinner, jewelry, clothing or personal electronics(61 percent).
  • To buy “life essentials” such as groceries or household products, or to pay bills (58 percent).
  • To get something they didn’t receive from their holiday wish list (51 percent).
Even with the best intentions, finding the perfect gift isn’t easy. According to the survey:
  • 45 percent of consumers still have at least one unopened holiday gift from last year.
  • 26 percent admitted to returning at least one gift from last year.
  • 22 percent admit to re-gifting at least one of their holiday gifts from last year.
Visa Gift cards can be used at millions of online and retail locations, giving recipients the convenience and flexibility to use the card where they want.
The data was collected in a national telephone survey examining consumers’ plans, perceptions and habits relating to gift giving. For additional holiday insights, visit the Visa Holiday Website at
