Payza Forms Strategic Partnership in European Union

Payza to Offer Low-Cost Direct Credit/Debit Card Processing to Merchants Throughout Europe

MONTREAL, QC and NEW YORK, NY and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Mar 13, 2014) - Payza, one of the world's most versatile online payment platforms for e-commerce, corporate disbursements and remittances, announced today that it has formed a strategic relationship to provide credit and debit payment service to European Union merchants based on its highly successful, fully-featured Payza as a Platform enterprise solution. The company announced its Payza Merchant Gateway service in the U.S. last month. Payza as a Platform is currently being used in nearly every country around the world by over 75,000 merchants. The service offers highly competitive pricing, a wide range of supported payment methods, built-in security and fraud protection, strong merchant support, and a host of tools, features, and reporting options.

"This partnership is significant in the international expansion of our merchant gateway service not only because we can provide more options to our European merchants, but also because it will allow us to roll out this service into Canada, Australia and Brazil in the very near future," explains Firoz Patel, Payza's Global Executive Vice President.

The platform's business payment module will enable businesses to accept MasterCard, Visa and JCB card payments directly into their bank account.

"Our upcoming payment processing module reduces friction in the online sales cycle by providing a seamless checkout process and the most preferred payment methods," explains Patel. "Payza Merchant Gateway users throughout the European Union will be able to accept credit and debit card payments without the hassle of managing multiple accounts at multiple institutions." 

Payza's online payment platform also offers a recurring billing service for subscription based billing cycles, at no additional charge. The recurring billing feature has a variety of intervals and billing terms and is created at a product level so additional products can complement the basic subscription. Unlike other payment processors and merchant accounts that charge monthly, gateway and other service fees on top of transaction fees, the Payza Merchant Gateway only charges for the processed transactions.

In addition, Payza's Resolution Center, supported by a dedicated team of resolution specialists, reduces chargebacks by assisting in resolving disputes swiftly. The platform is SSL encrypted and has PCI DSS Level 1 Compliance which, combined with Payza's proprietary Fraud Matrix™ system, assures the highest level of security in the industry.

The platform includes numerous developer tools including integration code, advanced button generation, and instant payment notifications.

"Running your online business is not just about sales," continues Patel, "It's about making sure your customers come back for more. Our full suite of business tools includes a customer support module that makes sure customers can get the help they need when they need it, whether it be via email, phone or live chat."
