You’ve been making your voices heard: after launching the new Merchant Portal last week, we have already added new features and enhancements, based on merchant feedback.

It’s been a few months since our last employee spotlight (Teresa). We’re back again to discuss one of the dedicated, smart and all-around awesome members of our staff. This time the spotlight shines on Christina Marquez, who has deftly handled technical support since 2014.

Check out Cam Merchants Should Be Wary of Fraud, by SegPay CEO Cathy Beardsley, published on XBiz.com. The article explains how Cam sites, or any business where customers can “feed the meter” by making multiple payments to extend a session, can limit risk. For example:
We have all read so many news headlines this year about hackers disrupting online businesses. Some of these sites were victims of cyber-terrorists, including those sponsored by nation-states, looking to deface websites and spread propaganda. Others were targeted by kids looking to prove their skills to their peers. Of course, some hacks are motivated by competitors trying to drive out the competition.

The SegPay team (Kristi, Teresa and Jeff) will be in Cartagena, Colombia July 10-12 for LALEXPO, one of the biggest trade shows in Latin America. This is our debut appearance at LALEXPO, where we will re-connect with old friends and make some new ones, while listening to what’s on the minds of the world’s leading Webcam content providers. We have an article coming in July, outlining ways that Cam programs can manage risk. So, while we’re very familiar with the space, we’re always learning and hope to come away from the show with some fresh insights on the state of the industry.
If you’re operating an online business, it goes without saying that you need to accept credit and debit card payments. So, what is the best way to do it? You’ll need a company to process the payments, but which one you choose depends on how much internal control you want over the payments process versus how much you want to outsource to the processor. The more you want to outsource, the more you need to consider the services processors provide, and the fees they charge. In this article, we’ll discuss the most important factors to consider, so you can make an informed decision for your business.
Live video chat services Streamate, IMLive and VideoSecrets together have more than 100,000 models streaming 24/7, and are the market leaders in providing live chat content to adult entertainment providers around the world.
