Global payments solution provider, DataCash, a MasterCard company, has announced that it is partnering with Redecard to a complete eCommerce solution in Brazil, E-commerce Redecard. MasterCard say the partnership will result in a state of the art payment solution for merchants across the entire Brazilian market.
DataCash is providing Redecard with its payment gateway to ensure that Redecard’s merchants are able to provide consumers with an efficient and convenient payment experience.
“We have over a million clients who see us as a synonym for tradition and cutting edge technology in payment methods. We will bring all of this experience to the ‘online world’ to address all of the challenges and demands this market presents”, said Marcelo Kopel, Redecard’s Executive Director.
Merchants who adopt E-commerce Redecard will benefit from a single system which enables them to accept and process a wide range of payment methods, including both national and international credit and debit cards as well as Boleto Bancário, all backed up with fraud prevention tools and a transaction management system.
“The Brazilian market is one of the world’s most rapidly growing eCommerce markets,” said Ajay Bhalla, president at DataCash. “DataCash’s payment gateway not only meets Redecard’s specific need for a platform that can process payments from multiple sources, but also has the flexibility to up-scale as Redecard further expands its footprint in Brazil. Ultimately this flexibility can be offered to merchants, ensuring they are able to meet the growing demands of the end consumer to transform the digital payments experience.”
