BR-DGE, Discover® Global Network, Payment Orchestration, Payment Acceptance, FinTech, UK, EuropePayment orchestration provider BR-DGE has announced its latest collaboration with Discover® Global Network to support its global growth. This alliance will enable BR-DGE’s merchants to access the growing global payments network.

Further, utilising BR-DGE’s position, Discover Global Network will have access to a global network that empowers merchants across travel, leisure, retail and beyond. This will support the strong global acceptance trajectory of Discover Global Network, currently sitting at 70 million merchant acceptance points and millions of micro-merchants.

This collaboration will help drive acceptance and enable BR-DGE merchants to provide greater payment optionality to customers seeking more from the checkout experience. BR-DGE merchants will be able to accept cards that run on Discover Global Network, ensuring global customers can pay how, when and where they want.

When combined with BR-DGE’s cross-border optimisation and market expansion capabilities, merchants will expand their offering to international travellers, including the 305 million+ Discover Global Network Cardholders around the world, comprised of over 25 network alliances, Discover, and Diners Club International Cardholders.

Commenting on the news, Tom Voaden, Head of Partnership at BR-DGE said, “Discover is a global leader in payments, and we are delighted to now offer our merchants the ability to meet the needs of hundreds of millions of Discover card users. By joining with leading payment providers, such as Discover, we can continue offering merchants a platform that allows them to select the best payment solutions to help grow their business, build loyalty, and exceed consumer expectations.”

“BR-DGE is an innovative payment orchestrator that supports our focus in the travel and retail verticals, making it a valuable connection for us,” said Rajiv Gupta, vice president of international markets at Discover. “Our work together will enable access to our global payments network and help merchants streamline their payment processes.”

By leveraging BR-DGE’s independent payment orchestration platform and its network of payment innovators, Discover is empowered to acquire new merchants, accelerate onboarding, and gain access to a wealth of marketing and sales resources.
