What Exactly Does InternetSecure Do For Its Clients?
Internet Merchant Status
Currently they offer Canadian dollar merchant status for VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS and DISCOVER. Currently they offer US dollar merchant status for VISA, MASTERCARD and DISCOVER. Merchants have their own unique merchant numbers and names, which their clients will see on their monthly statement as "Your Company Name via InternetSecure".
Real-time Risk Management and Fraud Detection
Since 1996, in real-time they have rejected 22% of all transactions presented to merchants based upon duplicate entries, keying errors and mischievous activity ensuring merchants only deal with valid orders. The end result of this Risk Management software is that InternetSecure merchants experience the lowest charge-back rate on the Internet, currently at less than 1/3 of one percent of approved transactions which is comparable to a non-Internet retail merchant.

Resolution of Clear Copy Requests and Merchant Chargebacks with the bank.
A clear copy request refers to cardholders questioning a charge on their monthly credit card statement. Usually, the consumer has forgotten about the transaction and is asking for more detail. InternetSecure will send the electronic receipt originally sent to the customer, to the bank. This receipt includes the products/services, merchant, shipping info and authorization number. In the event of a chargeback request, they will include the above information and shipping/delivery of product or service information from the merchant. InternetSecure works with the merchant and bank to resolve the situation.
1-800 Mail or Fax order authorization.
Merchants who wish to process their mail or fax orders through their InternetSecure merchant account may do so by sending these orders to InternetSecure for processing. The advantages in this are that all sales (regardless of origin) are processed and reported through one account. This eliminates the need for separate merchant numbers, bank accounts and sales reporting.
