Alpha Payments Cloud Adds Support for Cross-Border, Automated Sales Tax Alpha Payments Cloud, operators of a virtual hub where banks, merchants and payments providers can connect to one another’s’ services, made two announcements this week. The Irish company said it has partnered with Brazilian acquirer EBANX to enable merchants to more easily access the Brazil and Latin America markets. Alpha Payments Cloud also announced it has added tax automation software provider Avalara to its AlphaHub roster of providers.

The partnership with EBANX will give merchants that want to expand into Brazil or Latin America an “off-the-shelf” processing solution and the ability to accept popular local payment method Boleto Bancario.

And, the companies said, the addition of Avalara’s sales tax automation solution means merchants can tap their existing AlphaHub integration to stay current with constantly changing rates and rules across more than 12,000 tax jurisdictions in the U.S. ensure they are charging the right rate during the checkout process.
