EMVCo Secure Remote Commerce Checkout

American Express, Discover, Mastercard, and Visa have launched a one-click ecommerce checkout service based on the latest EMV-compliant Secure Remote Commerce (SRC) specifications for virtual payment terminals. The aim is to create for all of their cardholders a common payment experience at web and mobile sites as well as in mobile apps and from connected devices. 

The specifications define interfaces for the secure exchange of payment data in remote commerce environments. Options include using cryptograms and other dynamic data to improve security. It is compatible with requests for payment tokens from token service providers.

At checkout, entry of the buyer’s email address triggers presentation of all payment cards they have on file with the service, regardless of network brand. First-time customers will be prompted to provide the information needed to open an account. 

The payment icon consumers will see at checkout is the logo shown here. The trademark is owned by and used with permission of EMVCo. That company is owned by Amex, Discover, JCB, Mastercard, Visa, and UnionPay. 

The SRC service was tested in the U.S. By year-end, 10 sellers will have deployed it. Rollout will occur in the first half of 2020, focused on upgrading over 350,000 existing Masterpass, Visa Checkout, and expresspay (American Express) merchants to the EMVCo SRC specifications. Masterpass, Visa Checkout, and expresspay will be phased out in 2020.
