Secure Trading Financial Services (STFS), a provider of end-to-end acquiring services, has today announced its partnership with Payscout, a US based global merchant service provider (MSP) and payment service provider (PSP).
Fully regulated across Europe, STFS will enable Payscout to extend its payment gateway services into the region, allowing its merchants to operate in the European market for the first time. Payscout selected STFS for its value added services, including exceptionally quick and efficient application approvals which enables its merchants to be up and running online in as little as 48 hours.
Based in the US and established throughout Latin America, the Caribbean and Asia-Pacific, Payscout is a truly global payment solution for e-commerce and card-not-present transactions. Aiming to expand its reach into the European market and to become a full risk PSP, its partnership with STFS will also allow existing, non-European customers to expand into the region.
Payscout’s choice of STFS as an acquiring merchant partner was based on its optimal end-to-end service, ease of use, flexibility and unique features. Through the partnership, Payscout’s merchants can benefit from the comprehensive reporting facilities and a merchant self-management portal, with a suite of risk management services and flexible settlement terms. One of the most attractive features for Payscout, however, was STFS’ unique paperless onboarding process, which allows merchants to board using a single online application and obtain approval in as little as 48 hours.
“It is my pleasure to announce that Payscout Inc. is now a registered ISO partner of Secure Trading,” said Cleveland Brown, CEO of Payscout. “Payscout's mission is to support the entrepreneurial dream one transaction at a time and we have now expanded to partners in Europe that gives further global processing coverage for our clients. Secure Trading is known for their strength in technology and security to complex industries, and this partnership offers strong support for our mission.”
“Our partnership with Payscout is a great example of the value we can add to payment gateways, in this case helping them reach new frontiers,” said Mike Norton, STFS Managing Director, “We’re offering a standard of service that’s currently not available on the market – getting merchants up and running in a fraction of the time of our competitors. It’s a very compelling proposition for our partners and their merchants. With the bespoke technical connectivity we have built within the STFS system, linking up with us couldn’t be simpler, and we’re excited about expanding our partnership with Payscout.”
