Munich-based PAY.ON and CA-based Planet Payment have buddied
to enhance Planet Payment’s international service offering with PAY.ON’s innovative gateway solutions. Planet Payment anticipates launching the service in the second quarter.
This strategic partnership will allow Planet Payment to leverage PAY.ON’s comprehensive payment technology to onboard merchants faster and expand the international payment solutions available to their merchant clients, enabling growth into new markets. Planet Payment will now be able to enhance its retail payment processing services with PAY.ON’s mobile point-of-sale, mCommerce, and eCommerce solutions to offer merchants omni-channel payment processing. Transactions from all channels are driven through a single payment processing platform, allowing merchants to receive reports on all electronic payment transactions processed through multiple sales channels from a single source.
PAY.ON will power Planet Payment’s gateway with enhanced mCommerce functionality, creating a mobile payment solution for both iOS and Android devices that will enable consumers – using a merchant’s shopping application – to complete their purchases using their smartphones. The simple integration enables merchants to more easily expand their online offerings to a broad range of mobile devices. According to Juniper Research, mobile retail purchases are expected to exceed $700bn annually by 2018, representing 30% of eRetail by that time.
Planet Payment and PAY.ON’s partnership will also give Planet Payment merchants access to over 300 alternative payment types and acquirers around the world, allowing them to capture more sales by offering the optimal payment set-up for every market.
In addition to these enhanced gateway capabilities, Planet Payment’s clients will benefit from PAY.ON’s COPYandPAY widget-based payment forms, which allow merchants to completely remove themselves from the process of collecting sensitive payment information, thereby substantially simplifying PCI DSS compliance obligations.
