Relationship Provides Retailers with Comprehensive, Integrated Payments, Currency Conversion, Settlements and Disbursement Solution for Their Global E-Commerce Needs
New York and Toronto – May 15, 2013 – Computop, a leading payment service provider (PSP), and E4X, the global payments solution provider owned by Cambridge Mercantile Group, today announced a strategic global partnership. Through this relationship, Computop will integrate E4X’s Patented Multi-Currency Services into its Paygate payment platform. With this functionality, Computop will be able to offer its wide range of B2C and B2B customers an even broader, more flexible payments platform for their global e-commerce requirements.
Studies have shown that buyers prefer to purchase online from retailers that offer pricing in their local currency. E4X’s offering includes customizable solutions for currency conversion, multi-currency settlements, foreign exchange rate guarantee as well as global disbursements. This, coupled with Paygate’s comprehensive payments options and fraud prevention, provides an end-to-end payments solution for retailers who want to do business beyond their own borders.
“What makes our integrated solution so unique and compelling for retailers is that we can offer currency conversion for almost every payment option available on Paygate – most providers can only offer this service for credit cards,” said Ralf Gladis, CEO of Computop. “Also, as a result of this partnership, we can disburse funds globally to bank accounts in their local currency, which is particularly important for B2B merchants with buyers that may purchase products from different locations on a global scale. We are excited about our partnership with E4X and the impact it can have on retailers – and their customers – around the world.”
“We are excited about the partnership with Computop as it will allow E4X services to reach a more global audience of online merchants. The industry knowledge Computop offers in global alternative payment methods and fraud, coupled with E4X’s expertise in global payments and foreign exchange, will make for a compelling combination for any merchant selling online internationally,” said Bernard Heitner, CEO of E4X and Cambridge Mercantile Group.
Computop Paygate with E4X functionality will be available in June 2013.
