A Revolutionary Concept

Do you feel safe when making online purchases? Probably not.
According to Forrester Research, two-thirds of Americans worry about the misuse of personal information submitted online.
  In fact, Forrester estimates that these fears caused Americans to spend an astounding $12 billion less online than they might have otherwise!

A recent article featured on stated that:
"Online retailers are losing nearly half of their potential sales because many consumers are simply afraid to shop on the Internet. Half!"

This article goes on to state that:
"The good news for merchants is that the tools they need are available today. Now it's time to deploy them and market them."

Tonight we present to you a company doing just this. FSTI's Enhanced Transactional Secure Software (ETSS) a cutting-edge software package that, when bundled with FSTI's PaySafeNow˙FFFFA9 system, allows internet users to make online purchases without having to worry.  

You will be the one to directly swipe your card through a home-based device connected to your computer. Throughout each transaction, you will have complete comfort in the knowledge that your account data is neither seen nor stored by the merchant. Quicker and safer.

Businesses will no longer need to worry about eating the cost of fraudulent payments - since
ETSS immediately links the customer's payment information to his/her bank, the merchant will know about any and all fraudulent transactions right away.

This revolutionary concept has caught the eye of the technology world.  Read more about numerous exciting developments below.
