What Is Xpress-pay?
A powerful online & mobile ePayment system that lets you:
1. Instant Payment
Xpress-pay presents a form allowing the visitor to complete the information
and the amount to be paid.
2. Posted Bills
Xpress-pay clients upload bills to the Xpress-pay database. Visitors provide
search criteria, and Xpress-pay presents matching bills (EBPP).
3. Secure Payment Portal
The organization’s site engages in a dialog with the visitor to determine the payment amount. Payment is then completed either at the Xpress-pay site or via a secure iFrame at the originating site.
4. Xpress-pay Global aXcess
Similar to Option 2 above except that bills are retrieved in real-time directly from the organization’s database. The organization is also immediately advised of successful payment.
How You Win
Bill Retrieval Process
Typically, the process is initiated by a visitor navigating to the merchant’s site. Starting there is an important component in providing the confidence necessary for the visitor to continue, knowing that sensitive information is soon to be communicated. This chart provides a graphic representation of the difference between Xpress-pay Posted Bills and Xpress-pay Global Access:
Simply stated, if Global aXcess is in play, Xpress-pay queries the foreign database for bills instead of
the Xpress-pay database. Bills matching the visitor’s query are then presented for payment, along with
the following possibilities:
- Payment amounts for each bill can be enforced as delivered or, if the merchant permits, Xpress-pay can accept partial payments, overpayments, or either.
- Where more than one bill is presented, one or more can be selected for payment. It is also possible to limit selection to only one bill. This is helpful in the insurance industry, where a consumer must choose between an installment or full payment.
Real-Time Payment Advice
Upon payment, Xpress-pay records a history record and issues an emailed receipt to the visitor. If
Global aXcess is in play, the client’s database is updated in real-time. The visitor is then navigated to
the on-screen receipt:
With Global aXcess, an asynchronous post is instantly delivered to the merchant’s API for processing.
Global aXcess performs all exchanges in real-time, providing a secure and efficient method of
extending ePayments to everyone you serve.
Your Global aXcess project starts with an exploratory discussion to determine the capabilities of your
API suite. If you do not have one, only two API’s will be needed, one for retrieving bills, and a second
to accept real-time payment advice. The parameters and response strings are entirely dependent upon the criteria upon which your searches are to be dependent. Your web developer can provide guidance and pricing for these components.
Since the entire framework for Global aXcess is already in place, the charges from our firm will be
limited to the time & expense relating to the custom programming needed to interface with your unique API’s. Assuming you have capable API’s and a qualified project liaison, thirty to forty staff hours is a reasonable initial expectation. Please contact your Xpress-pay representative to obtain the current programming rate, an estimate, and to make arrangements for the initial discovery meeting.
Thank you selecting Xpress-pay for your ePayment needs. We stand ready to assist you in achieving success with your ePayment project.
