New Version of 3-D Secure Helps Merchants Comply with PSD2 in Europe

A Vote for Volunteering

In her latest piece for XBIZ.com, Cathy makes the case for getting out of our comfort zones and volunteering for advocacy groups. Using her own example, prior to serving on the Board of the Free Speech Coalition, Cathy says hadn’t fully grasped just how much groups such as FSC and countless others are doing to protect adult workers and create an environment in which the industry can continue to thrive.

Our tagline is “All the way to paid.” Ultimately, that describes the most important thing Segpay does: make sure our merchants are paid. But many merchants need payouts sent to others, besides just themselves.

Segpay provides another option for age verification

Adult-site merchants doing business in the UK have until July 15th to implement age verification measures that ensure their consumers are at least 18 years of age.
