People tend to think of instant Credit Card clearance as
the approach to take for selling products and services on-line.
However, most businesses taking the first step into selling
products or services on-line find the difficulties and the
costs involved prohibitive. Payment Gateway fees, processing
software costs, setup charges, compatible shopping cart software
- things really start to add up. Then there is the fraud risk
associated with on-line Credit Card clearance - transactions
that need to be reversed are subject to hefty fees by the
The solution is eSecureMail - Secure Email Payment System.
In a nutshell, eSecureMail allows you to receive Credit Card
payments via securely encrypted email
eSecureMail employs Public Key - Private Key
Encryption which is extensively used throughout the Internet.
When an order is submitted on your website, it is instantly
encrypted and sent to you as an email. No Credit Card details
are kept on the web server and you are the ONLY person
who can decrypt and read the email.
On receiving an order via encrypted email, you simply process
the Credit Card transaction through your normal process as
you would for any over-the-counter sale.
It's simple and cost effective. Additionally, because you
view each transaction in order to process, the likelyhood
of fraud is greatly reduced - suspicious looking orders are
Besides the normal Credit Card transaction fees charged
by your bank, the only charges you will incur with using eSecureMail
are outlined below.
We have endeavoured to make the fee system as flexible as
possible in order to meet the needs of the majority of businesses.
The fee for the use of eSecureMail is a pre-paid amount based
on the value of transactions and is valid for a maximum of
1 year from date of commencement.
There is a one time set-up fee of $120.
maximum value of transactions
Perhaps an example will explain this more clearly:
Should you be just starting out, it is probably best to start
with the 2k package. There is a set-up cost of $120
plus a pre-paid fee of $100 bringing your total cost to $220.
For this you will be entitled to any number of transactions
to a total value of $2,000. Say you are selling CDs at $20
each, this would mean you could sell 100 CDs, then would need
to purchase a further package. Each package is valid for a
maximum of 1 year from date of commencement. Thus after a
year, it is necessary to purchase another package even if
your transactions have not reached the maximum allowed.
The % figure in the last column indicates the percentage
the pre-paid fee is of the maximum value of transactions,
and is given to illustrate how the fee reduces significantly
for the larger packages.
Once your initial 2k package expires, you should then be
able to estimate which package best suits your needs and renew
accordingly. Of course, the set-up fee is not applicable to

Public Key - Private Key Encryption
Encryption is done via a method called Public Key - Private
Key Encryption. A Public Key is used to encrypt the email,
but only the Private Key can decrypt it. We use and recommend
to provide the Digital Encryption certificate that is necessary
for this process.
The Digital Encryption certificate is issue directly to you
by Thawte, thus you are the only person to hold the Private
Key, and hence the only person who can unlock the encrypted
email. We only ever receive the Public Key which can only
be used to encrypt the email - it will not decrypt.
