Payment technology company Windcave, which earlier traded as Payment Express, has agreed to facilitate card acceptance for Discover in New Zealand.

Under the agreement, Windcave will serve as the global acquirer for cards that use the Discover Global Network, a payments unit of US-based Discover Financial Services.

The collaboration will enable the Discover Global Network cardholders to shop using their card at thousands of point of sale locations as well as ecommerce traders in the country.

Commenting on the partnership, Windcave sales director Joel Martin said: “This is a key milestone for us as we work towards simplifying payments and offering a one-stop solution for businesses across New Zealand.”

Discover senior vice president of global acceptance Amy Parsons added: “Whether for business or leisure, New Zealand continues to be a top destination for the cardholders of our issuing partners.

“The partnership with Windcave gives us the ability to deliver the best customer experience for our cardholders in key markets around the world.”
