Los Angeles, CA: Allied Wallet, a global leader in online credit card processing, multi-currency merchant services, state-of-the-art payment processing, digital eWallet solutions, software development, and a provider of a PCI Level 1 payment gateway, was recently featured in a public television series hosted by Martin Sheen, “In Focus.”

“In Focus” details the process of accepting credit cards safely and the importance of security online. In an industry that has swelled from $72 billion in 2002 to $256 billion in 2011, it’s important to keep all transactions safe.

There are many merchant services companies that you can peruse in a search engine. But it’s become clear that many of these companies have short lifespans and are eventually investigated for fraud and scam.

Fighting fraud and scam is an important job of a payment processor. Merchants can find the lowest rates, but if they’re not careful they can find their money frozen. Choosing a payment processor is even a form of marketing; shop owners must choose a processor that makes their potential customers feel safe.

In Focus chose Allied Wallet as a trustworthy source of the industry based upon its reputation. CEO of Allied Wallet, Andy Khawaja, began forming the company in 2002 and already boasts over 41 million users around the world that are protected by Allied Wallet’s PCI Level 1 Payment Gateway.

The industry is constantly evolving. “The mobile payment functionality [will] allow the customer to put their fingerprint on their [phone]… and it’s going to know you, the cardholder…” says Andy Khawaja, “That’s going to eliminate fraud…and it’s going to make sure that transactions are fully 100% secured.”

The segment clearly stresses why security is a major issue in today’s world of commerce, and paints a picture of how one company is doing its part to protect transactions all over the world.
