Government seeking payment processor

Residents of Bermuda may soon be able to pay government fees online with crypto currency.

A government request for quotations, posted on www.gov.bm, said it seeks to modify the open-source code of the payment gateway Gov.Uk Pay for local use on the gov.bm site.

It added: “The objective is to provide the public with a consistent and uniform experience when paying online.

“The modification of the code for the purposes of Bermuda will provide the Government with the necessary functionality to:

• Process an online payment — allow clients to enter credit card details and complete a transaction

• Retrieve payment details — verify payment by retrieving the status and all relevant information about the payment

• Refund processed payments — refund functionality can be implemented to revert the funds back to the client's account; and

• Settle payments — settle pre-authorised payments so that the funds are withdrawn from the client's account once a condition is met.”

The Government said the open-source code currently integrates with Worldpay, Stripe, Smartpay and ePDQ.

It added that it would “also seek to modify the code to integrate First Atlantic Commerce and authorise .net payment gateways, accept crypto currency and connect to JD Edwards Enterprise One with the provision of an API for the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Orchestrator module”.

The submission deadline is 5pm next Monday.

Full details can be found at www.gov.bm under “Government Contracts”.
