dc.description.abstract The growth of the electronic payment methods have rapidly increased in past decades. This has been resulted in growth in electronic transactions fraud. The main source of electronic transactions is card payments. People are reluctant to do card payments online because they think twice about the security. On the other hand if a person loses his card or identity of any electronic payment system, he/she has a higher chance of losing their money. ePaySwitch is less complicated but reliable method of preventing a card fraud which gives the control of the card to the user. ePaySwitch gives the control of the card to the end customer through the mobile application. ePaySwitch server is installed on premises of the bank or financial institute. Server has two main sub modules as ‘Payments Processor’ and the ‘Customer and Cards Manager’ which implemented on two separate servers. These two modules are connected to the database which runs on a separate server. Combination above two modules with database and mobile application together, we call the ePaySwitch. Customer can keep their cards turned on or off using the mobile application. They even can set whether can perform transactions Online, Offline or for Withdrawal. Additionally they have the facility to set maximum transaction values for each of the above transaction types. This feature enables the customers to protect their money even their cards have lost or stolen. Mobile application communicates with the server via APIs bind to the mobile application. These APIs are written Java and hosted on an Apache Tomcat server. Payments Processor and the Customers and Cards Manager have written in PHP and hosted on an Apache web server. Database is a MySql GPL version for the current version of ePaySwitch. Simulation shows how the system will work on real environment. Answers to the questionnaire we prepared shows that some customers’ biggest paint point is fear of losing their money because of cards. Some have showed that they have no idea on their spending when using the cards. But somehow they are willing to user a solution like ePaySwitch if they had a chance. Finally it is shown that ePaySwitch is a practical solution for prevent frauds and control transactions in the electronic environment en_US
