Conekta is one of the largest payments service providers in Mexico that allows users to send and receive money online and offline. In addition to processing payments, Conekta allows companies and developers to create unique payment solutions with their own designs and workflows for any website or app.
The company understands the challenge of distrust in payment systems in Mexico. By creating an ecosystem based on Mexican needs, Conekta allows customers to buy goods online safely and pay in cash at 18,000, 24/7 OXXO convenience stores, enabling merchants to mitigate the problem of chargebacks entirely. The company generates unique, 14-digit reference codes to process consumer payments and notify merchants in real-time.
Conekta built a payment solution for cash challenges in Mexico called OXXO Pay, which directly connects two data centers to process payments. The company needed to scale by connecting services through the Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment and cloud. Additionally, OXXO/Femsa had to boost security. Specifically, the VPN they were using was not dedicated and lacked a secure connection.
To meet OXXO/Femsa’s needs for a more secure and scalable payment processing, Conekta chose Flō Networks to make a direct connection between their two data centers, and AWS Cloud. Flō’s ability to provide direct connectivity, rock-solid security, and stability was one of the main reason the company selected them as their network.
Flō Networks provided a dedicated, 50 MB connection between the two OXXO/Femsa data centers with an extra layer of security. The major benefit was security and stability of the connection, and it has operated reliably and securely since deployment.
