Products - VCpay Mobile Payments - Payment Process

Once a mobile phone user has created an MVC and entered the relevant data into the respective fields at a webshop or sent the payment information to a contactless POS terminal, the merchant will immediately send the card details for authorization. This request will be routed to the Issuer via the merchant acquirer and the payment networks. Upon receipt of the data string, the Issuer identifies the card as a Mobile Virtual Card (thanks to a dedicated BIN) and passes it to the VCpayTM Host Server for decoding.

After verifying the transaction amount, identifying the VCpayTM cardholder, and validating the MVC, the VCpayTM Host Server sends an authentication response back to the Issuer, who can then proceed to authorize the transaction depending on the availability of sufficient client funds. The settlement of all VCpayTM transactions occurs as per the standard interbank settlement protocol or interchange.

Products - VCpay Mobile Payments - Technology

An MVC number fully complies with the card scheme rules by keeping the format of 23 digits that are usually printed on a credit card, while using these digits for the creation of a virtual card cryptogram. The VCpayTM application combines the key advantages of two incredibly successful and pervasive products: the portability of a mobile phone and the convenience of a credit/debit card.

Before a mobile phone owner can start using VCpayTM, he/she needs to activate the application by registering with the Issuer, selecting a funding account, and choosing a PIN that will be used to protect the application.
