deRemate.com, a leading online trade community across Latin America, has simplified its payment process for users who can now securely send and receive money using only an e-mail address.

Relying upon the open-source architecture and technical support of Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) and JBoss solutions, the company has created what it calls a reliable in-house payment portal portal that the firm says is performing transparently.

Purchases process through DePagos.com, the new payment platform, and will ultimately eliminate the need for third-party services for managing transactions, according to deRemate. The solution is currently operating for deRemate.com retail sites in Argentina and Chile and is expected to roll out in Colombia and Mexico in the near future.

"Our experience with our new combined Red Hat and JBoss solution and the related support has been excellent,” said Alfredo Yung, chief technology officer at deRemate.com. “Our new solution has larger potential than we’re even using so far, so we’ll later see what other business opportunities arise from our new platform, and how our business will evolve as a result."
