Computop, a payment service provider, has announced a partnership with eShopWorld, a provider of cross border e-commerce software, and services, and Billpay, a provider for online payment methods dedicated to key European markets.
The strategic alliance aims to bring customers an integrated ecommerce, logistics and secure payment platform to support growth in international markets.
Stephen Berry, country manager for Computop UK commented, “2014 is set to bring major international retailer expansion as brands seek to maximise opportunities in key resurgent markets, growing consumer demand for UK brands and greater awareness of the ‘unknown’. By simplifying the complexities of operating in the international market with our partners, we can offer merchants a single platform to deliver a seamless, enhanced customer experience.”
Martin Tully, Chief Operations Officer for eShopWorld said: “We share Computop’s total commitment to helping retailers manage the complexity of localising international customer online sales and delivering a superb shopping experience. We’ve had proven success with multiple international brands and we’re looking forward to building on this.”
Maximillian von Eisner, Chief Sales Officer at Billpay adds, “Partnerships like these are about putting the customer at the centre of an improved payment solution. We’ve been working with Computop to do just that in a number of key European markets, enabling retailers like Joules to respond to specific local preferences in a safe, easy and convenient way.”
