Digital River World Payments (DRWP), through its partnership with commerce-enabling technology firm First Data, is offering online merchants a full-service, turn-key solution for processing in-country payments in Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia.
With the integration of First Data’s global acquiring platform, DRWP will be able to empower merchants with local operations, increase their credit card authorisation rates and global reach.
Additionally, the company is expanding its existing in-country payment processing capabilities in Europe by adding First Data to its growing network of payments partners.
Now, online merchants foraying into Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and Europe can utilise DRWP’s three different business models including cross-border payments, a global payments gateway and a fully integrated, in-country payments solution.
DRWP senior vice president and general manager Hayden Reed said: “Today, online merchants are seeking payment providers that can offer global payment options and highly localised experiences across multiple geographies. Our recent partnership with First Data responds directly to this need, and helps our merchants provide optimised in-country payments capabilities.”
First Data head of global ecommerce Shane Fitzpatrick said: “First Data prides itself on simplifying the connections that make commerce possible, and nowhere is this truer than in our dynamic global online environment.
“By integrating with our multi-currency, multi-country platform, Digital River World Payments is not only expanding its payments offering, but also further capitalising on international market opportunities.”
