Payment Processing Services

Accepting and processing payments rendered at POS terminals and through host-to-host connections 

A long history in high quality processing services 

Next to being licensed by De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) as Payment Institution CCV is also licensed as Payment Processor 

As Payment Institution, CCV provides services to merchants for various payment products (such as Mastercard, Visa, Maestro, V PAY, Bancontact, iDeal).  

As Payment Processor, CCV provides processing services to payment Institutions, i.e. acquirers and payment facilitators. These services are listed below. 

In addition to processing the common international payment products, CCV has a long history in processing petrol and fleet card transactions, which require specific petrol market functionality.

Security and privacy of your data is our top priority 

Acquirers and payment facilitators entrust us with sensitive transaction data. In addition, given our critical role in the economic ecosystem, we understand the importance of managing risks threatening our services and related customers’ data. Our teams use their knowledge and expertise to reduce the risk of all types of threats.  

Basic Processing Services 

Payment transactions are accepted from a source and forwarded (switched) to a destination, such as the Payment Institutions and payment schemes. Basic Processing also includes the production of transaction export files. 

CCV supports a wide variety of payment products, acceptance technologies and transaction types. 

Acquiring Processing Services 

In addition to Basic Processing services, acquirers and payment facilitators may obtain acquiring processing services. These include payment scheme clearing, merchant settlement, merchant invoicing, reconciliation functionality, reports, and risk management activities. 

CCV supports many scheme formats, transmission types and aggregation levels for merchant settlement. 

Brand certification 

When a new component (mostly POS device type) is introduced in the payment infrastructure used by the acquirer, payment schemes require a brand certification. 

CCV can assist you in many aspects of this certification, e.g. by offering a test environment and expertise. 

1 billion transactions for 20 Payment Institutions

Every day CCV delivers services to more than 20 Payment Institutions.  
For them we process more than 1 billion payment transactions each year. 

High levels of security and continuity 

Our processing domain, processes, qualified staff and our risk mitigation measures ensure that payments are accepted and processed 24/7 with very high availability and in line with the market standards. All aspects required for the services meet stringent (cyber) security, privacy and compliance requirements. Based on CPMI guidelines, we have an effective approach on cyber resilience for financial market infrastructures. We are also responsible for regularly conducting third-party audits, and maintaining certifications to verify the security of our systems and processes.
