US merchant services provider Ziroca has announced a partnership with London-based Payza, an online payments technology platform, in order to use its Payza Gateway credit card processing solution.
Payza Gateway allows merchants to process credit card transactions online by offering a free merchant account with no monthly fees.
Ali Nizameddine, executive vice president of Product and Technology at Payza, commented: "When Payza Gateway launched in February, we started by offering services to a select group of industries in the US market.
"Through a series of partnerships we are now quickly expanding the platform, with a plan to bring the service to new markets and make it available to new industries and regions."
Ziroca offers credit card processing for a wide range of industries such as retail, restaurant, grocery, hospitality, government agencies, e-commerce, mobile/wireless and specialised industries.
"This partnership with Ziroca is one more way Payza will be able to expand the availability of Payza Gateway processing service in the United States," said Nizameddine.
Payza’s platform is currently used in over 190 countries and 21 currencies around the world and by over 75,000 merchants.
In March, Payza announced that it would bring its payment platform to merchants in the European Union (EU).
At the time, Firoz Patel, the company’s global executive vice president, said: "Payza Merchant Gateway users throughout the EU will be able to accept credit and debit card payments without the hassle of managing multiple accounts at multiple institutions."
