House of Fashions, a fashion retail landmark in Sri Lanka, has taken its offering online and has appointed the Commercial Bank of Ceylon as its Internet Payment Gateway (IPG) service provider to facilitate this development.

The service will cover the authorisation of Credit and Debit cards, and processing of direct payments through Visa, Mastercard and UnionPay branded cards. 

The online payment processing of will be facilitated by Commercial Bank through Mastercard Payment Gateway Services (MPGS) which is fully-compliant with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) requirements. 

It is a secure e-commerce solution as merchants are provided with ‘server-hosted pages’ whereby card details are processed on the Payment Server and not at the merchant’s end.

Commercial Bank’s IPG solution provides access to a comprehensive set of fraud mitigation tools, supporting both ‘Mastercard Secure Code’ and ‘Verified by Visa’ 3D secure authentication solutions while having the fully automated process to handle ComBank Easy Payment Plans (EPP), enabling card-on-file transactions through tokenisation, keeping the purchasers’ sensitive card details away from the relevant systems. 

It provides integration options to systems on multiple languages such as PHP, Java and C Sharp and supports device-optimised payment screens which are designed to offer a seamless experience to users of various devices.

Founded in 1992, House of Fashions is South Asia’s largest single-owner shopping mall that provides fashion, lifestyle, and household items under one roof. It is acclaimed as one of the leading fashion houses in Sri Lanka for its variety of choices that fulfil the customer needs. 

In the spirit of empowering local businesses to reap the benefits of e-commerce, the Commercial Bank of Ceylon recently launched ‘ComBank Simple Pay’, a revolutionary platform that enables SME entrepreneurs to digitise their businesses. 

The platform provides local entrepreneurs the opportunity to create their own online store without spending large sums on web development and designing. They can also sell products, accept electronic payments and significantly enhance their business opportunities with ‘ComBank Simple Pay.’
