Barclaycard has tapped FreedomPay to provide a seamless end-to-end payment experience to Barclaycard customers across a number of sectors.
Through the partnership, FreedomPay’s data-driven payment solutions will be available to Barclaycard customers. In addition, FreedomPay aims to enhance Barclaycard’s existing offer by giving more access to different payment methods and technologies.
Nicole Olbe, Managing Director of Partnerships at Barclaycard, said: “This exciting new partnership shows our ambition to offer customers best-in-class payment solutions that help them grow. The FreedomPay platform complements and enhances our own, and gives benefits to merchants – particularly in the hospitality and leisure sector – to help them offer the best payment experience possible to their customers.”
Through FreedomPay integrations with services such as Oracle OPERA and Pay at Table, diners can pay digitally from their seat. Furthermore, FreedomPay’s association with Ingenico’s TETRA platform means businesses can use the entire range of wireless and Bluetooth-powered PIN entry devices (PEDs).
FreedomPay also supports mobile wallets such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, with plans to add AliPay, WeChat Pay and China Union Pay in the near future.
Chris Kronenthal, President and CTO of FreedomPay, said: “We have ambitious expansion plans across Europe and Barclaycard is a critical acquiring partner of scale, with a reputation for trust and security, to help us with that journey.
“FreedomPay’s global reach is unique in the world of commerce and working with Barclaycard we will strengthen our capabilities across all continents. We are very excited to see the partnership prosper.”
Earlier this month, Barclaycard extended its relationship with SAP to make its payments gateway product Smartpay available to SAP customers across Europe.
Through the alliance, businesses signed up to the SAP Commerce Cloud will have access to SmartPay, which enables flexible payments. In addition, the platform supports one-click purchases and allows buyers to use a variety of cards, currencies and payment methods.
