Westpay enlists ACI Worldwide to offer omni-commerce payments to merchants
By Edlyn Cardoza
ACI Worldwide, a global mission-critical, real-time payments software, has announced that Westpay AB, a payments solution provider in the Nordics, will utilise ACI Secure eCommerce to enhance its current in-store payment solutions with e-commerce capabilities. A new agreement between the two companies will enable Westpay to offer merchants a seamless and secure customer payments experience across all channels.
Westpay AB is a full-service FinTech and payments solution provider, offering services and solutions that simplify payments and amplify the customer experience. The company counts leading retailers in the Nordics, including Axfood, KICKS and Elon, among its customers. Integrating ACI Secure eCommerce will also support the company’s global growth strategy as it looks to expand into other markets, including South Africa.
“One of the most significant changes during the past years has been the greater adoption of eCommerce and the rise in online shopping. However, the in-store environment is still, for many merchants, the place where most of the transactions occur,” stated Sten Karlsson, CEO of Westpay. “With the integration of ACI Secure eCommerce, Westpay will combine the areas of eCommerce and in-store — managing payments and consumer interaction seamlessly, regardless of payment method used or where the transaction originated or completed. That’s what Integrated Commerce is all about.”
ACI Secure eCommerce is a holistic payments orchestration platform, combining a powerful e-commerce payments gateway with sophisticated real-time fraud prevention capabilities and advanced business intelligence tools. It includes the ACI Mobile Commerce SDK, enabling merchants to offer a mobile checkout experience, the ACI Smart Engage mobile engagement platform and ACI PayAfter, a comprehensive BNPL offering that connects customers to more than 70 BNPL lenders.
“We are delighted to partner with Westpay to advance the company’s Integrated Commerce offering,” said Basant Singh, Head of Merchant, ACI Worldwide. “ACI has the know-how, relevance and solution portfolio to complement Westpay’s in-store payments offering, helping merchants increase conversion rates and grow their businesses by making payments part of a smooth, seamless and secure customer journey. Our orchestration solutions for merchants help them to sell more, lose less and maximise margins.”
