MIAMI, FL, Feb 10, 2009 ( -- Mazooma today announced the first real-time, non-credit eCommerce payment solution of its kind. By easily and securely enabling online payments directly from consumer bank accounts, Mazooma allows millions to pay for their eCommerce purchases instantly without a credit card.
With the Mazooma solution on the checkout page, merchants can open their eCommerce doors to millions of new consumers who do not have credit cards or have previously balked at sending sensitive information online. Through an Internet-enabled back account, consumers can use Mazooma to transact in real-time with online merchants through a few simple, secure, and convenient steps.
Mazooma creates the opportunity for significant cost savings, with fees half the cost of typical online credit card transactions. Since Mazooma does not require pre-registration, the solution may be used immediately, thereby increasing conversion rates. Merchants receive instant authorization, allowing them to ship the order at once. Currently, Mazooma supports more than 70 percent of all bank accounts in the U.S. and has plans for international expansion. Mazooma's payment system has no jurisdiction limitations.
Mazooma has chosen to integrate into CardinalCommerce's industry-leading payment platform for eCommerce merchants. "We are pleased to announce the addition of Mazooma to Cardinal Centinel(R)," said Matt McDowell, vice president, CardinalCommerce.
