Elevon, DataCash Launch Payment Gateway in Europe

Feb. 28, 2012

Elavon, an Atlanta-based acquirer/processor owned by U.S. Bancorp, has partnered with DataCash, a MasterCard company, to launch Elavon’s Global E-commerce Gateway solution in Europe. The solution expands payment options, reduces fraud, and ultimately improves sales for businesses accepting e-commerce payments. “The combination of Elavon’s acquiring experience, processing reach, and financial stability, with DataCash’s gateway expertise, fraud controls and unmatched connectivity results in a win-win for our customers,” said Simon Haslam, president of International Markets for Elavon. “We are pleased to be able to provide one point of service and support to our clients as their global commerce needs evolve.” Elavon said its Global E-commerce Gateway provides hosted payment pages to relocate critical cardholder data to DataCash’s centrally managed datacenter, while tokenization further ensures cardholder security and mitigates the complexities associated with PCI compliance validation.
