Global Payments has teamed up with Discover Financial Services, a US-based direct banking and payment services company, to launch a streamlined acceptance solution for Discover cards for Canadian merchants.
The solution aims to simplify acceptance of Discover, Diners Club International, PULSE and affiliated network cards for Global Payments’ Canadian merchants.
In addition, the program will provide merchants improved payment acceptance options as well as offer them a single source for payment processing, settlement, underwriting, risk management, support and reporting.
Global Payments Canada president René Bélanger said: "The launch of our full acquiring program for Discover is the latest example of our commitment to providing Canadian merchants with robust and innovative product and service offerings."
Discover Network vice president Gerry Wagner said: "Our agreement with Global Payments allows us the opportunity to benefit merchants by streamlining Discover Global Network acceptance, while continuing to deliver value for cardholders at the point-of-sale."
