EarthLink Selects CyberCash Payment Service

Reston, VA-based CyberCash Inc. said it has been selected by Internet service provider EarthLink to provide payments services for its new electronic commerce offering, TotalCommerce.

TotalCommerce is a Web-based store package providing everything a merchant needs to begin managing and profiting from e-commerce on the Internet. The solution is offered in six packages that are divided into entrepreneur and developer categories, scaled to meet the needs of any type or size of business.

"Even though CyberCash's service is entirely transparent to our members, they can rest assured knowing that we are making e-commerce easier for them, while protecting their most sensitive credit card data," said Barry Friedman, director of product management at EarthLink.

CyberCash's 7x24 CashRegister service enables merchants to accept secure payments over the Internet with a wide range of consumer payment options. The service is scalable, supporting start-up merchants to major Internet malls. All transactions are encrypted.
