Payza Launches New Features in the U.K.

Members Now Have Access to Multiple New Services

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - Jan 28, 2014) - Payza, one of the largest payment platforms for e-commerce, corporate disbursement and remittances, announced today that members in the U.K. can take advantage of a host of new services and features from the company. In addition to adding and withdrawing funds, sending and receiving money instantly, consumers will be able to take advantage of a completely revamped account design that enhances Payza security. Merchants will be able to use the Payza business tools including Payment Buttons, Recurring Payments, and advanced APIs.

"The U.K. represents a huge market of sophisticated online consumers and merchants," said Firoz Patel, Global EVP. "These new features will make Payza even more secure and easier to use, while providing access to the millions of members we have around the globe. The Payza Platform is available in nearly every country in the world through its partnership network, which means greater access for merchants and more convenience for consumers using the service."

There is a new streamlined verification process designed to make account verification quick and easier for U.K. members to complete. "The new process is entirely automated," Patel added. "As soon as someone creates an account, the Payza system will automatically act to verify the member's identity. Once verified, members will have higher transaction limits and less restrictions overall." While verification of an identity is crucial for the security of all e-wallets, the process with other services can take time and create frustration.

Payza has also added a sleek new interface. Transaction buttons are now more prominent and a new member Activity Feed layout provides a snapshot of all their activities. Members can readily review their recent history: deposits and withdrawals, money sent and received; purchases; and profile updates -- all in one place. "Having all this information in one place will make the user experience much better," Patel added. "That and security are the hallmarks of our service."

The new design also includes avatars that can be personalized as a creative way to add an extra level of security for members. "Their avatar greets them along with their custom message whenever they log in," concluded Patel. "This provides an assurance that they have reached the Payza website, which makes it even more difficult for hackers to fool members with phishing scams."
