ACCEO Solutions, a Canadian IT company, has collaborated with MasterCard to provide in-store and e-commerce payment solutions to retailers with a global footprint.
The new service, based on MasterCard Payment Gateway Services and ACCEO Tender Retail, will enable ACCEO to deliver a solution to large global retailers that simplifies and unifies payment acceptance across all digital and in-store shopping channels.
The new partnership will allow ACCEO’s retailers to give consumers a connected shopping experience, wherever and however they decide to pay, whether shopping in New York, Dubai, Paris or London.
The combined offer comprises PCI-validated solutions that ensure secure payments through the use of tokenisation, point-to-point encryption and EMV support. Hosted Payment pages, SecureCode and Masterpass conclude an integrated commerce experience.
ACCEO vice president for business development and strategic alliances Joey Vaccaro said: “Our partnership with MasterCard is extremely exciting. The combination of our technologies results in a one-stop shop for a merchant's payment needs across all channels, and in all global markets, creating a unified customer experience.”
MasterCard general manager of payment gateway services in Americas, Tim Fletcher said: “Due to the enormous growth in digital payments, retailers are looking for technology solutions that connect across all shopping channels, are increasingly global, and – most importantly – are safe.
“This partnership enables more retailers to benefit from MasterCard's unrivalled connectivity and the industry-leading safety and security offered by our global network. In doing so, we are able to help customers operate more efficiently and in turn, grow their business.''
