PHOENIX, AZ (June 4, 2020) --   Transact Campus Inc. has received an award for Best E-Commerce Platform/Gateway during the annual Card Not Present (CNP) Awards, a program celebrating the “best of the best in e-commerce solutions.”

Transact equips higher education institutions with a broad and comprehensive array of integrated paymentsprivilege management, and campus commerce solutions.

A leader in the campus solution space, Transact is guided by a mobile-first philosophy, exemplified by recent innovations including a new student mobile payment app user interface that includes responsive design and removes friction and helps payers easily digest information; and being the first and only credential provider to offer native NFC contactless mobile IDs in both Apple Wallet and Google Pay. 

“Businesses of all kinds are being forced to adapt and innovate in this unprecedented year," said D.J. Murphy, editor-in-chief of Card Not Present®. "Merchants in the e-commerce fraud and payments community, facing completely new online shopping and fraud patterns, are working hand-in-hand with service providers to respond. We’ve done that as well. This year, we’re fortunate to be able to unveil the CNP Awards—the standard by which companies in this industry are recognized and judged—virtually for the first time. We congratulate all the winners and hope to see them and the rest of our community in person next year."
