Some news from Mastercard: in a Jan. 16 blog post, the credit card giant announced new rules governing free product trials with recurring subscriptions for physical goods, such as skincare or healthcare items.
We recently announced a new pricing feature called Post Pay, giving Cam sites and other token-based services more control over how transactions are authorized and captured. Details about Post Pay activity can be found in the Transaction Detail Report in Segpay’s Merchant Portal. And now, we’ve introduced a dedicated Post Pay Report which includes more information about these transactions, and helps you associate each Post Pay capture with its original authorization request.
Please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you think. Is there any other Post Pay data you’d like to see in the report?
The Segpay team is making its annual pilgrimage out west. Our first stop is in Los Angeles, for XBIZ 2019, January 14-18 at the Andaz Hotel. We hit one more stop along the way, namely the Las Vegas Hard Rock, for InterNEXT January 22-25.
If you plan to be at one, or both shows, please join us for some partying, giveaways and, of course, discussion about your plans for 2019 and how we can help.
Please check out Cathy’s latest XBIZ piece, The Rocky Road of Regulations in 2018, in which she recaps the litany of new rules and other challenges our industry had to navigate during the past year. The good news: we’re all stronger for having gone through the process of dealing with everything that came at us in 2018.
Offering free trial periods can be an effective way for subscription-based merchants to showcase their services without requiring any commitment from the consumer. A downside, however, is that you can attract “trial junkies” – those who sign up just to get the free stuff, with no intention of ever actually buying a subscription. One way to cut down on trial junkies and increase the likelihood that free trials convert to members: require a valid credit card to access your trial.
Segpay is donating payment processing and consulting services to the non-profit Free Speech Coalition (FSC), the national trade association for the adult industry.
Merchants who’ve asked for more transactional postbacks will be happy to see that up to four can now be sent for every transaction. More data is also available in Merchant Portal reports starting today. Here’s a complete list of our pre-holiday updates:
Great news: you now have more information about the consumers and purchases you search for in the Segpay Merchant Portal.
Segpay recently introduced Post Pay, a pricing feature designed to give merchants more control over how they authorize and settle purchases on “cam” sites or other token-based services. With Post pay, merchants can offer a better buying experience while lowering their risk of chargebacks.
We hope everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving here in the US, or abroad, had a fantastic holiday. Earlier this month, Cathy shared some thoughts about why she (and we) are feeling thankful for the adult industry, a source of many Segpay clients, partners and friends.
