Datatrans specialises in payment transactions for e-commerce and runs a sophisticated system enabling payments involving all credit cards, Postcard and various customer cards to be processed rapidly with a high level of transaction security. The cooperation between Swisscom Fixnet and Datatrans means over 700 providers can now use Click&Buy as a payment solution with a minimal technical overhead.
Click&Buy is a secure, simple and fast payment solution for billing and collecting payment for digital content, services and physical goods on the Internet. It is a purely Internet-based system for micropayments and, at the same time, a billing system for online purchases up to around CHF 3,000. Click&Buy combines customer requirements with the providers' need for simple, cost effective billing.
Click&Buy was launched in Switzerland in January 2005 and over 100,000 Internet users now conveniently pay for purchases via their Swisscom Fixnet telephone bill. Users can register simply at no extra charge at www.swisscom-fixnet.ch/clickandbuy. Billing takes place monthly via the Swisscom Fixnet telephone bill or a credit card.
Providers such as Confiserie Sprüngli, Geschenkidee.ch, NZZ Online, ExLibris Music Download, iTunes, i-m.ch, SwissLotto and many others already accept Click&Buy for payment in their online shops. All of which opens up their range of products and services to a wider audience, which thus far has shied away from making purchases on the Internet for fear of credit card fraud.
