Ecentric will utilise ACI Omni-Commerce to enable its merchant customers to offer consumers new and innovative payment options.

“We are proud of our long-standing relationships with innovative companies like Ecentric, helping them deliver experiences that ultimately result in more growth opportunities,” said Brett Stevens, Head of Africa, ACI Worldwide. “In the rapidly evolving payments ecosystem, ACI technology solutions empower Ecentric and other PSPs to provide merchants with the necessary flexibility and scalability to deliver optimal experiences to their end customers.”

Ecentric Payment Systems, a long-time ACI customer serving many South Africa’s largest retailers, processes more than four billion transactions annually. As the innovative payment service provider (PSP) increases its footprint, it will leverage ACI’s omnichannel payments platform, which provides flexibility to support consumers’ in-store, online and mobile needs.

“As consumers’ payment preferences change and their checkout demands increase, it is paramount for merchants to provide optimal experiences, regardless of the channel,” said Hassan Sheik, CEO of Ecentric. “ACI Omni-Commerce provides a secure omni-channel payment processing platform that powers the purchasing experiences our consumers are expecting today.”

ACI Omni-Commerce is a secure omnichannel payment processing platform with the flexibility to support merchants’ in-store, online and mobile needs and the scalability to power the purchasing experiences that customers are looking for now and in the future. It offers support for multiple card payment types (credit, debit, prepaid, EMV, and contactless), global schemes (Apple Pay and Google Pay), and alternative payment methods (BNPL, wallets, loyalty, and QR). It provides access to a global payments network of acquirers and payment providers. Robust payments security is achieved through P2P encryption, merchant, and network tokens.

It also includes ACI Fraud Management for merchants, a real-time, multilayered fraud management solution designed to meet the requirements of ecommerce merchants and PSPs.
