Under the terms of the agreement, TSYS, a leading processor for bankcard issuers and merchant acquirers, will begin processing prepaid and credit card transactions on the Discover Network, a business unit of Discover Financial Services.
The agreement, which will provide issuers with more options in choosing a preferred processor on the Discover Network, is part of the Discover Network's commitment to offering payment solutions that deliver significant value to issuers. It is expected to contribute towards Discover Network's increased sales volume and an expanded infrastructure.
