January 10, 2000 - InternetSecure Inc. now offers merchant customers the ability to accept the popular Discover credit card on their e-commerce websites to accommodate the growing number of US on-line purchasers. Currently, more than fifty percent of purchases on InternetSecure’s merchant websites are made by U.S. customers. The availability of the Discover credit card will enable Canadian and international merchants to further cater to the needs of the North American on-line purchasing market.

InternetSecure is Discover’s largest Canadian customer, providing approximately 2,000 merchants with the choice of offering the credit card on their e-retail site. Founded in 1995, InternetSecure is now the only non-financial institution in the world facilitating U.S.- and Canadian-dollar merchant status for Internet merchants internationally. As an approved Internet Merchant Acquiring organization, InternetSecure provides its customers with bank-approved Canadian and U.S. dollar Internet merchant status with Visa, Mastercard American Express and Discover.

“Most of our merchants – both Canadian and international – are selling their products and services to US customers. Being able to accept the hugely popular Discover card adds a significant benefit to our merchants. We’re pleased to continue offering such value-added services to our customers,” said Rick Nugent, President and CEO of InternetSecure.
