Worldline and BR-DGE extend partnership to expand payment offering
By Gloria Methri
Leading payment orchestration provider BR-DGE has extended its partnership with France-based digital payments provider Worldline. The collaboration will see BR-DGE’s merchants having access to Worldline’s global acquiring platform, across the payment value chain.
The extended partnership will further leverage both BR-DGE and Worldline’s expertise in the Digital, e-Retail, Gaming and Media and Travel sectors, to future product development and collaboration between the entities.
The latest strategic partnership builds upon an agreement between BR-DGE and Worldline in 2020, which enabled BR-DGE to integrate its e-commerce payment consolidation and control features into Worldline’s UK rail e-commerce platform. Building on the breadth of work already undertaken as part of the existing partnership, the new agreement further commits to exploring global partnership opportunities.
Kelly Harvin, Global Director of Channel Partnerships for Worldline, said, “E-commerce customers can leverage the partnership between Worldline and BR-DGE to quickly enable payments acceptance globally, including key growth corridors like South Korea, India, and many countries in Latin America. We are excited to collaborate with BR-DGE to help merchants increase conversion through our best-in-class solutions.”
BR-DGE’s Partnership Program brings together over 300 payment providers and technology solutions to enable merchants to optimise their payments stack and benefit from payment orchestration. To meet growing merchant demand for payment orchestration, BR-DGE partners with payment service providers like Worldline to deliver superior end-to-end payment solutions.
Discussing the partnership, Tom Voaden, Strategic Partnerships Lead at BR-DGE said, “The expectations and payment needs of merchants and customers across the globe are changing rapidly with growing demand for frictionless payments. We are thrilled to be continuing to work with Worldline and are delighted that they are the latest addition to our 300-strong network of payment providers. As we continue our long-term partnership with Worldline, we look forward to collaborating on future products and initiatives.”
