  • Patent number: 10496964
    Abstract: Methods and systems for processing payments using payment aggregators are provided. In particular, one or more embodiments comprise an e-commerce payment facilitator that acts as an intermediary between a commerce application and a plurality of payment aggregators. This allows the e-commerce payment facilitator to provide a user with payment methods supported by the plurality of payment aggregators. Furthermore, one or more embodiments enable the e-commerce payment facilitator to route transactions to payment aggregators based on various factors, such as availability, reliability, and profitability. In addition, one or more embodiments provide e-commerce payment facilitators with greater control over the processing of transactions by allowing for the routing and distribution of transactions across multiple payment aggregators.

  • Publication number: 20190147515
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable storage media are disclosed for facilitating a payment transaction between a user and a merchant. In particular, one or more embodiments call a third-party tokenization system in response to a request to initiate the payment transaction to obtain a payment token representing a payment authorization number. Additionally, one or more embodiments wrap the payment token within a transaction token to send to a merchant system associated with the merchant. One or more embodiments receive the transaction token in connection with a request to process the payment transaction and then extract the payment token based on receiving the transaction token. One or more embodiments then initiate the payment transaction based on receiving the transaction token by sending the payment token to a payment network.

  • Publication number: 20190087811
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems, methods, and devices that provide a transactional payment system. In particular, the transactional payment system allows users of a messaging system to send and receive electronic payments to and from other users of the messaging system. A messaging application on a client device can receive payment information input (such as a payment amount and payment method) from a sender for making a payment to a recipient. The messaging application can send a payment message including the payment information to a messaging system, and the messaging system coordinates a payment process based on the payment information. During the payment process, the messaging system can provide status updates to the sender and receiver of the payment via status messages that are included in a message thread corresponding to the sender and the recipient.

  • Publication number: 20180183737
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to systems, methods, and devices for processing payment transactions between a user and a merchant using a messaging bot. In particular, a commerce system allows the user to initiate a communications session with a messaging bot associated with the merchant using natural language. One or more embodiments use natural language processing to analyze messages from the user to the messaging bot, and from the messaging bot to the user, to identify a product and a request to purchase the identified product. Based on the identified product and the request to purchase the product, one or more embodiments initiate a payment transaction on behalf of the user based on a natural language conversation and without redirecting the user away from the communications session. Additionally, one or more implementations provide a payment initiation message from the messaging bot to the user indicating that the payment transaction was initiated.

  • Publication number: 20180174137
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems, methods, and devices for device and system agnostic payment tokenization for processing payment transactions. In particular, the message system allows a user to initiate a payment transaction with a merchant. For example, one or more implementations involve identifying, in response to a request by a user client-device, a payment authorization number associated with a user account and sending a request for a payment token to a payment network associated with the payment authorization number. One or more embodiments receive a payment token representing the payment authorization number. Additionally, one or more embodiments encrypt the payment token and send the encrypted payment token to the user client-device to provide to a merchant system associated with the merchant.

  • Publication number: 20180174138
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems, methods, and devices for device and system agnostic payment tokenization for processing payment transactions. In particular, the message system allows a user to initiate a payment transaction with a recipient. For example, one or more implementations involve dynamically selecting, based on a plurality of factors associated with the payment transaction, a payment tokenization method from one of a network tokenization method, a gateway tokenization method, or a third party tokenization method. One or more embodiments also dynamically select, based on a plurality of factors associated with the payment transaction, a token exchange method from one of a client-side exchange method, a server-side exchange method, or a direct exchange method.
