Global card processor Payvision has teamed up with Home Trust, a federally regulated financial institution, to offer tailor-made acquiring solutions to the Canadian market.
Payvision’s solutions are designed to serve each domestic market, connected to one global acquiring platform. This agreement gives Home Trust access to Payvision’s cross-border ecommerce community, industry knowledge and network of global acquirers. Payvision is planning to support Home Trust’s merchants with multi-currency processing, helping them to expand their geographical footprint.
“The Canadian market is an online-savvy marketplace that requires tier-one processing solutions with a focus on cross-border payments,” said Rudolf Booker, CEO and founder of Payvision. “Being in Canada provides us with a tremendous opportunity to build on our mission of connecting cultures through cross-border commerce, and working with Home Trust helped outline detailed requirements and market expectations, and provided great insight into the Canadian landscape.”
Canada is an evolving market with new technologies, products and service needs, and having a local resource with the right contacts, and an understanding of global acquiring complexity and the Canadian market is paramount, the company added.
