Worldpay Technology and Security
WorldPay’s Select Gateway is the core of our eCommerce enabling solutions. Built around leading web technologies from Sun, Apache, JavaSoft and Sybase, WorldPay Select provides customers and their shoppers with a wide range of payment methods and reporting tools.
WorldPay Select accepts payment information via the web, capturing card and shopper details for authorisation of payments via the banking network. Transaction results can be viewed by the customer and their shoppers and automatic messaging facilities provide digital receipts directly to both parties from WorldPay.
A range of integration methods are provided through WorldPay Select to meet the needs of a diverse community of eCommerce traders. These methods provide support for solutions from small one-off customised applications through to large organisations integrating their own legacy systems with the help of third-party developers. WorldPay Select payment pages are responsible for capture of shopper card details, removing the need for the customer to have a secure web-server or secure shopper databases, whilst a callback model allows the customer site to respond appropriately to card authorisations. This callback system can be used to provide information to web applications that need to be dynamically updated in response to authorisation messages.
All transactions are encrypted using 128 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) architecture (dependent on browser support), and are signed using Thawte digital certificates.
