Visa, Verifone Partner for Omnichannel Acceleration
June 8, 2015
Visa and Verifone have announced a partnership under which merchants can expand their omnichannel activity quickly by integrating Verifone’s point of sale systems with Visa’s CyberSource online payment and fraud prevention platform. The companies said Verifone will connect its point-of-sale gateway to the CyberSource platform, providing merchants a single platform to enable transactions across different payment channels.
“As consumers shop and pay in multiple channels, merchants are looking to integrate payment systems to facilitate a single view into their customers’ buying behaviors,” said Andre Machicao, senior vice president at CyberSource, a Visa Inc. company. “This announcement is about two industry leaders coming together to create that view for merchants so they can better serve and understand the needs of consumers globally, across all commerce channels, and without sacrificing security.”
