- Actinic Ecommerce now supports NOCHEX ePayments -

12 February 2004, Weybridge, Surrey ~ Best selling ecommerce supplier Actinic Software has introduced support for NOCHEX online payments in version 6.1.4 of all editions of its desktop ecommerce software: Catalog, Business and Developer. This is an important option for e-tailers who do not have merchant status, such as those just starting up or running the site as a hobby.

The NOCHEX web payment system enables businesses and individuals who are trading online to accept payments from anyone with a UK debit card (60 million are in circulation). Accepting NOCHEX payments means that the money is available to the seller instantly. NOCHEX payments are also guaranteed, so there are no concerns about charge-backs for fraudulent transactions; and with rates as low as 1% for receiving money, NOCHEX represents a cost-effective alternative to accepting credit cards online.

According to Stephen Potts, NOCHEX marketing manager, "The integration of NOCHEX into Actinic means that UK sellers will now have a seamless solution for selling online. With the Actinic product handling the shop front and ordering process while NOCHEX handles the payment processing, this really does offer small businesses a very reliable, secure and cost effective way to sell online."

Commenting on the additions, Chris Barling, CEO of Actinic explains, "We recognise that merchants and their customers want to be offered a range of online payment options, and the reassurance that their information is secure. By supporting NOCHEX, we have added a further option for merchants who want to enable shoppers to purchase online easily without using a credit card."
