- Services Description
mSIGNIA agrees to provide a Payment Simulator (“PaySim”, the Services as defined below), which contain proprietary and, in features not specified by international standards, patented or patent pending code of mSIGNIA.
PaySim contains (i) an online merchant storefront (i.e., website and mobile apps for iOS and Android which include EMV 3DS SDKs (“SDKs”), (ii) an online merchant backend with functionality for online wallets and checkout, (iii) a EMV 3DS Server (“3DS Server”), (iv) an EMV 3DS Directory Service (“DS”), and (v) an EMV 3DS Access Control Server (“ACS”). The SDKs, 3DS Server, DS, and ACS are each a “3DS Product”.
PaySim supports EMV 3DS protocol communications including: (i) internal and consumer user interface flows with message logging for EMV 3DS specified flows such as frictionless and real-time challenge authentications processing as described in the EMV 3DS specification, (ii) decrypted, where applicable, display of the data exchanged in the EMV 3DS protocol payloads, and (iii) error handling for inconsistent data and erroneous responses.
Each 3DS transaction identifier, as defined in the EMV 3DS specification, exchanged between the 3DS Products within PaySim is a transaction (“PaySim Transaction”). For clarity, when a unique PaySim Transaction is exchanged between an SDK, 3DS Server, DS, and ACS, it is a single PaySim Transaction. Unless defined differently in the Agreement, any User of a Customer may perform a maximum of one thousand (1,000) PaySim Transactions per twenty-four hour period.
PaySim also supports EMV 3DS compliant extensions with customizable data exchanges which enable PSD2 SCA compliance.
3.1 PaySim Web Services. PaySim provides the following web services:
3.1.1 Test Merchant
- Merchant Commerce Server – reference web commerce server and related EMV 3DS Merchant back-end services (including a payment card wallet) for a fictitious merchant.
- Merchant Clients – reference website storefront and mobile app storefronts for iOS and Android mobile apps which include EMV 3DS SDKs. Merchant Client supports a simulated mobile in-app scenario via web-based iOS simulators and Android emulators.
3.1.2 Test 3DS Server – an EMV 3DS Server for communicating with an EMV 3DS DS
3.1.3 Test 3DS DS – an EMV 3DS DS for protocol communication with the EMV 3DS Server and EMV 3DS ACS.
3.1.4 Test 3DS ACS – an EMV 3DS ACS for protocol communication with the EMV 3DS DS and Merchant Clients. The ACS component can receive a pseudo-PAN and perform the related, specific action including frictionless, challenge, and requestor-initiated exchanges.
3.2 Substituting Test Products. Users can choose to test either against default 3DS Products or one or more 3DS Products added by their Administrator.
Documentation includes a guide for (i) selecting EMV 3DS and PSD2 SCA functionality (such as frictionless flow, challenge, SCA data extensions, etc.) controlled by the pseudo-PAN chosen by the User, and (ii) replacing default 3DS Products with a Test Product. Documentation details the specific format, expected response and error conditions possible for PaySim.
If Users cannot resolve a technical issue using Documentation and they believe the Service to be in error, the User should contact their Administrator using the support process defined by the Administrator.
