Independent white label payment gateway provider Cardstream has today announced its partnership with point of sale (POS) payment gateway specialist Creditcall, to power the company’s first omni-channel processing and reporting solution for independent software vendors (ISVs), independent sales organisations (ISOs), and software companies.
By marrying Creditcall’s range of more than 30 PIN pads into its e-commerce platform, Cardstream can now offer new and existing partners an end-to-end white label service that enables online, mobile, in-store and unattended payment acceptance, with an unparalleled choice of handheld payment terminals and acquirer relationships.
“Creditcall’s approach is aligned with ours,” said Adam Sharpe, CEO, Cardstream. “Their independence and depth of product offering ensures our partners aren’t tied into a single stack option. We can give them and their merchants the freedom to choose the best of breed technology and most attractive acquirer relationships for their business.”
The full suite of payment options within Cardstream’s partners’ own branded gateway environments will open opportunities within their existing merchant portfolios that include ticketing, gyms and retail.
The alliance will ensure that Cardstream’s partners enjoy all the benefits of an omni-channel solution and the seamless customer experience it delivers. Creditcall’s gateway-to-gateway feed, ChipDNA Link, securely transmits transaction data for real-time reporting capabilities across in-store, e-commerce and MOTO payments.
Using secure tokenisation, transactions from any payment method can be further utilised via other payment channels and viewed in one centralised real-time reporting portal, regardless of the payment’s origin. This brings huge efficiencies for multi-outlet and multi-channel businesses.
“We are very excited about this partnership with Cardstream” said Lars Pedersen, CEO at Creditcall. “Many merchants are struggling to offer a cohesive omni-channel experience to meet consumer demand. With ChipDNA Link, a world’s first of its kind, we enable Cardstream to offer these capabilities to their customers.”
The addition of POS is an important part of Cardstream’s mission to become the global standard for white label payment provision. By offering an extensive hub of connecting technology, the company will support its partners with a global payments capability that covers all channels seamlessly.
“We already have presence on three continents,” said Adam “Next year’s plan is to increase our presence further and take on merchants globally. Payments are always evolving and we're ensuring every method is catered for within our secure platform. POS is one. We’ve also recently added Alternative Payment Methods that enable us to process any regional or local transaction around the globe.”
