X-Cart and CRE Secure Partner to Eliminate eCommerce Merchant's Systems from Scope of PCI Compliance

X-Cart, a major International provider of eCommerce solutions, and CRE Secure, the industry's leading cloud-based, secure payment solution for merchants, today announced an alliance to offer CRE Secure's hosted payment page technology to X-Cart eCommerce merchants through a fully integrated X-Cart module.
X-Cart's eCommerce platform is deployed by thousands of online merchants in more than 100 countries. CRE Secure's patent-pending HTML Clone(R) technology allows merchant payment pages to be generated on-demand, delivering a seamless experience to the shopper and eliminating the X-Cart platform from the scope of PCI.
"Through CRE Secure, we are able to provide our merchants a universal interface to most major payment providers, increase customer conversions with a seamless checkout process, and lower their PCI compliance costs," said Alexander Mulin, senior vice president of business development for X-Cart. "Just as important, merchants will not have to change payment providers in order to get a seamless, secure PCI compliant solution. The integrated solution can immediately eliminate the shopping cart software from the scope of PCI compliance with most major gateways and providers."
Kevin R. Lee, president and CEO of CRE Secure, said, "The X-Cart platform's advanced capabilities allow the merchant to create the best possible shopping experience for their shoppers. With our partnership and integrated payment page solution, X-Cart merchants can now seamlessly expand their branding through the entire check-out process, while also giving the consumer greater security, all at a lower cost of ownership than traditional, scope-reducing PCI solutions."
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) is a multifaceted global security standard that requires eCommerce merchants that accept and process credit card payments to comply with four different levels of standards, A through D. These critical measures are designed to help merchants protect customer account data.
The PCI DSS requirements for X-Cart merchants that use the CRE Secure integrated shopping cart module can be reduced from the highest levels -- Level C or D, which requires a third party auditor for validation, to the lowest, least costly level to maintain compliance - Level A. This standard eliminates the need for the merchant to purchase and use Payment Application DSS (PA-DSS) certified software. Through CRE Secure, the merchant's applicable eCommerce platform -- like X-Cart -- will be taken out of scope of PCI compliance.
