The New W3C Payment Request API

The new W3C Payment Request API, developed by the Web Payments Working Group, is frictionless checkout at its best. W3C Web payments are designed to work exactly the same way on any browser, device, or platform—mobile or otherwise—no matter what credit, debit, or prepaid card is being used. That means consistent, fast checkout experiences across the board.  And you can start using it right away with the hundreds of thousands of customers who already have credit card numbers stored with a browser! So why wait? Grab our developer documentation and start coding today.

Payment API Credit Card Capture Change

We’ve made some recent improvements in our capture request functionality, giving you the ability to split a capture request into multiple transactions. Payment API users can visit our developer documentation for instructions on how to implement.  

New BlueSnap Data Protection Addendum & Privacy Policy

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation—GDPR—comes into final force on 25th May. BlueSnap has put into effect a Data Protection Addendum containing mandatory provisions for GDPR compliance for all merchants serving EEA individuals wherever the merchant is based. Please click here to review these changes. BlueSnap’s updated Privacy Policy covering the new requirements introduced by the GDPR will automatically come into effect on 25th May and will replace the current version on our Privacy Policy Page.   

Don’t miss out on Visa Checkout

63% less fraud volume and 35% more completed transactions—it’s all possible when you implement Visa Checkout with BlueSnap. This eWallet has 20 million current enrolled accounts, so don’t miss out! It’s easy to implement and can be used with both our API and hosted pages. Check out the docs  or contact merchant support to start increasing conversions today.

Visa Changes On The Way

To give shoppers greater control over how their data is stored and used, Visa recently issued a new mandate: Merchants who offer cardholders the opportunity to store their payment credentials on file must now obtain cardholder consent and disclose how those credentials will be used. BlueSnap will be rolling out support for this functionality this summer—stay tuned for specific updates!

Keeping Chargebacks In Check

Visa is taking steps to ease the pain of chargebacks with its new Visa Claims Resolution (VCR), rolled out in April. They’ve introduced a new dispute process that will help eliminate invalid disputes, leverage data to avoid disputes, and expedite the entire dispute process. Together with BlueSnap’s own chargeback notification system and dispute resolution tool, our customers can expect to see an overall decrease in chargeback fraud (along with the associated headaches), and an increase in revenue. Check!
