Payment Services Provider DataCash (part of the MasterCard Group) is enhancing its service to incorporate customers using the fast-growing open source e-commerce platform Magento. It has enlisted specialist e-commerce agency Session Digital ( to develop an enterprise-level payment module that will support new and existing DataCash Merchants using Magento.

Forming a bridge between Magento and the DataCash service, the payment module will give merchants the reassurance and reputational advantage of providing customers with the best and most secure of payment services.

The DataCash payment module will be hosted on the Magento website and free to download for all Magento users. Once integrated into a Magento e-commerce site, the DataCash module will enable full access to the range of DataCash services, including the ability to accept credit and debit card payments in over 300 currencies, PCI DSS compliant solutions and a management reporting suite.

Paul Stephens, head of partner channel, DataCash, explains: “As a global payments specialist, it was important for us to choose a leading enterprise partner with top Magento credentials. Session emerged as a clear front-runner from our initial research and its work with renowned e-commerce brands speaks for itself. This is an exciting new phase of development for DataCash and reinforces our commitment to make payment selection a simple and efficient process.”

Richard Jackson, director, Session Digital, continues: “Development for Magento is our speciality and we were pleased to form a partnership with DataCash to extend its offering to users of the world’s fastest-growing e-commerce platform. We’ve already integrated the module for a very large customer, and will be launching the module in the near future.”
