Introducing Card+ App: SmartTokenization™ for Secure Online Payments

Online payment fraud is the crime most worried-about in America, and grew with the explosion of Online eCommerce, to become a $10bil problem in 2023. At CardWare, we’ve been working hard on this problem for years, and we're very excited to announce the Beta launch of the Card+ App, putting our advanced payments technology in your smart devices. We believe Card+ dramatically transforms how users feel about their cards whether paying in-store, online or over the phone, and it is designed from the ground-up to be easily integrated into merchant, issuer and bank applications with an easy to adopt SDK License program.

Key Features of Card+ App

Card+ App introduces our SmartTokenization™ technology, with multiple modes for limitations-on-use, in generating a combined Static & Dynamic-portion card numbers, each more tailored to meet different needs:

• Simpler: Generate a one-time use card with dynamic CVV and expiry date.

• More Secure: Enhance security with a one-time use card featuring dynamic CVV, expiry date, and PAN.

• Merchant-Limited: Create merchant-specific cards for added safety against data breaches.

• Time-Limited: Set custom expiry dates for subscriptions to avoid unintended charges.

• Location-Limited: Limit card usage to specified locations, perfect for travelers.

• Amount-Limited: Load a specified amount to control spending effectively.

• Amount & Recipient-Limited: Restrict usage to a specified recipient and amount.

• Amount & Recipient & Recurrence-Limited: Specifying the amount, recipient, and recurrence for regular transactions.

• Credit-Limited: Set a customized credit limits (e.g. for fleet cards, corporate cards, children’s card) to control and monitor spending.

Any stolen or phished payment information is invalid outside its limitations of use. This puts the user directly back in control of their payment information. And by eliminating traditional fixed payment numbers, Card+ directly directly addresses the risk of online fraud, skimming, phishing and data breach, reducing friction, simplifies card-on-file management at merchants, and enhances the merchant-consumer experience by elimination the pain of false-declines and accompanying cart-abandonment at checkout.
