Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin company and major European player in the processing of high-volume electronic transactions, is providing its Secure Internet Payment Service to Venda Limited, the European market leader for eCommerce solutions.
The Atos Worldline solution is critical to Venda's pan European expansion plans providing direct links to all major European acquiring banks.
As a key part of their growth outside of the UK, Venda needed a reliable payment services provider that could offer direct links to all major acquiring banks initially in France, Germany, Belgium, Holland, with further links to Spain, Portugal and Eastern Europe in the near future.
With the new solution, Venda clients, who include Crabtree & Evelyn, Panasonic and The Body Shop, will be able to ensure secure internet and card holder not present transactions for their customers across Europe. Initial roll-out of the service will be to France, Germany, Belgium and Holland with plans to extend to Spain, Portugal and Eastern Europe shortly afterwards.
"Atos Worldline demonstrated a core capability and proven track record in payment processing; a scaleable solution and the experience and expertise to deliver the service across Europe," said Dan Wagner, Chairman and CEO of Venda Ltd. "All of which will ensure we have a payment infrastructure in place to offer our customers real benefit across Europe."
Under the three year contract Atos Worldline will deliver its Secure Internet Payment Service solution, providing Venda with a simple single interface that will give them payment services across Europe. This includes all major payment cards, local debit card processing in each country, ELV facilities in Germany and Mister Cash in Belgium.
"We are delighted to be entering into a new business relationship with Venda and are extremely confident that our leading Secure Internet Payment Service can support Venda's rapid expansion plans across Europe," said Peter Phillips, Business Unit Director, Electronic Payments & Card Processing, Atos Worldline in the UK.
