Rainforest QA Brings Simple and Secure Online Payment Testing to Ecommerce Industry with Virtual Credit Cards

Ecommerce brands like Delivery.com, Volusion and RocketLawyer trust Rainforest QA to deliver their customers a seamless digital payment experience

SAN FRANCISCO – April 17, 2018Rainforest QA, the leader in on-demand quality assurance (QA) solutions, today announced Virtual Credit Cards (VCC), a new, patent-pending innovation allowing companies to rapidly and reliably test credit card payments on their web or mobile app. VCC was designed to help ecommerce developer teams move at the speed of continuous delivery by securely testing their payment flow in minutes, so they can focus on getting new features to market faster.

As companies scale their ecommerce operations, it is essential for them to have a reliable means of processing credit card transactions. In addition, testing credit card functionality for ecommerce websites and mobile apps is critical and yet a very time-consuming process for development teams. Without a reliable credit card testing solution that keeps pace with their needs, development teams risk shipping bugs that lead to failed payments and lost revenue. VCC allows customers to test payment flows by linking virtual credit cards generated by Rainforest QA to real, dedicated accounts from which the credit balance is drawn, replicating a real buyer’s shopping experience. This innovative approach empowers development teams to securely test their entire transaction flow, from point of sale to payment completion, in minutes instead of several days when compared to manual methods.

VCC is currently patent pending. Once issued, the patent will cover Rainforest’s advanced proprietary payment functionality, making VCC the only on-demand, automated online payment testing solution that scales with the pace of production.

“As an all-in-one ecommerce platform provider, the ability for us to test our checkout system with live transactions is critical,” said Taylor Martin, software analyst at Volusion. ”Our community of over 180,000 entrepreneurs trust our software to help build their companies, and with Rainforest QA’s Virtual Credit Cards, we no longer need to worry about buggy payment flows that could potentially disrupt their business.”

“Credit card testing needs to adapt with the rapid growth of ecommerce and shift towards continuous delivery,” said Derek Choy, CIO at Rainforest. “Rainforest QA Virtual Credit Cards represents an important step in closing this gap by giving ecommerce development teams the ability to integrate credit card testing directly into their workflows. As a result, they can assure their business an online payments experience that meets their customers’ expectations.”
