ACI Worldwide and Worldpay partner for alternative payments
Written by Peter Walker
ACI Worldwide has announced an international relationship with Worldpay, with the latter utilising the former’s e-commerce payments solution to accelerate the roll-out of alternative payment methods to its global merchant network.
Worldpay accepts more than 300 payment types, and will use ACI’s UP eCommerce Payments solution to broaden the number of payment methods available in different regions across the globe, alongside speeding up time to market for merchants.
According to a joint statement, the relationship will enable Worldpay to further deepen its commitment to innovation and the development of new strategic products and services.
ACI’s integrated payments gateway and risk management solution gives merchants access to a global payments network for cross-border payment processing and local acquiring solutions, coupled with business intelligence tools and real-time fraud prevention capabilities.
It supports hundreds of ways to pay across more than 160 countries and is built using a flexible, platform-based, open payments architecture that is available via a single point of integration.
Asif Ramji, chief product and marketing officer at Worldpay, commented: “As more of our merchants expand into cross-border and cross-channel trade, offering local payment types that are recognised, trusted and utilised by consumers is an increasingly important factor for business success.”
Benny Tadele, vice president for merchant solutions at ACI Worldwide, added: “Today, payment methods once described as nascent can quickly become mainstream, especially in a mobile-first world – UP eCommerce Payments enables Worldpay to quickly take advantage of new emerging payment trends.”
