SecureNet Payment Systems, a payment processing technology provider, and Storeplacer, an omni-channel commerce application development platform, have announced the launch of a strategic partnership between the two companies creating a fully-integrated solution for merchants and developers. The integration will enable Storeplacer users to quickly process credit card payments and access SecureNet’s full payment platform functionality directly from their Storeplacer account.
Storeplacer’s commerce delivery platform enables developers to create online shopping experiences across web, mobile, social, TV, point-of-sale and other digital channels. Utilizing SecureNet’s Instant Boarding Solution, Storeplacer users will be able to setup a new merchant account and begin accepting payments instantly without upfront underwriting. Merchants will now be able to generate revenue immediately while having the flexibility to choose their preferred method of accepting payments.
“Empowering immediate revenue generation and saving developers valuable time is a major advantage,” said Jason Lobel, CEO, Storeplacer. “The integration aligns two forward-thinking, flexible technologies that enable speed to market and unparalleled agility, which are crucial in the ever-changing world of online retail. Until now, the barrier for enabling commerce across many touchpoints seamlessly was high.”
Utilizing SecureNet’s API, developers and Storeplacer users will now be able to quickly enable shopping across any digital channel from one, fully integrated, platform.
“As consumers continually evolve and find new places to shop, it is important to stay a step ahead and empower merchants and developers with better, more relevant payment options across emerging channels,” said Brent Warrington, CEO SecureNet. “
