Globway has seen a marked increase in services using PSMS in a Co-Reg environment in the UK-market. In support of these initiatives and due to the continued high level of consumer complaints pertaining to the promotion and charging mechanism of certain PSMS services, the Globway board has taken the decision that it will no longer provide PSMS payment services in respect of digital media that is discovered and consumed online. Such services will continue to be billable via Globway across all UK networks using DCB only with effect from 1st November 2016
Globway wish to give notice to all its existing premium rate clients that any services using PSMS for services discovered and consumed online (including promotion on Co-Reg sites) will need to be migrated across to PFI as soon as possible, but to be concluded no later than 31st October 2016.
We will also be updating our API’s to remove the ability to use iFrames in our UK DCB environment. All new service set-up requests will use the updated API, and changes to existing API connections will be implemented with effect from midnight on 31st October 2016. Once the change is made to the API, all requests for embedded Transactions, via the embed=embed parameter, will be responded with “Error: Please contact your Account Manager for details”
If you have any queries or run services that will be effected by this announcement, please contact our sales support team who will assist with a migration plan to ensure that services are moved by the end of October.
