American ExpressAmerican Express is arguably one of the most known multinational financial services corporations in the world. That in itself makes it an attractive for merchants but particularly so because of its acquisition of Loyalty Partner in 2011. Amex completed the $685m purchase in March that year and since then also owns the much appreciated Loyalty Partner “Payback Loyalty Program” in Germany and Poland as well as the i-Mint loyalty program in India.
SEPA PaymentsSEPA, the Single Euro Payments Area, is a payment integration initiative that consists of over 35 EU member states including Norway, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Denmark, and the United Kingdom just to name a few. Northpayments will enable merchants to offer efficient cross-border payments to any bank account in the member states.
PayPal with ClickandPayPayPal is popular alternative to bank accounts and while it was possible to receive payments with PayPal on the same checkout page, Northpayments has now made it even easier for merchants to receive payments via PayPal by integrating it with ClickandPAY. With 165 million active customer accounts, PayPal is a welcome addition to the company’s portfolio of online checkout solutions.
NorthPayNow for seamless integration of paymentsPayPal, American Express, and SEPA Payments will be added to Northpayments’ NorthPayNow system. The seamless integration of payments into the websites of the merchants eliminates the need for programming, hosting or a complicated setup. Merchants can choose from widgets for the most popular website building platforms and add two lines of code that are provided.
The code is copied directly into the script of the merchant’s payment page. This way customers never leave the website for the checkout process. Both merchants and customers can rest assured that checkout process is simple and safe.
SimplicityCEO of North Payments, Jacob Parker-Bowles emphasises the simplicity of their payment solution: "NorthPayNow powers traditional and alternative payments, e.g. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, PayPal, Skrill, open invoice, 3D secure, and many more. The solution comes with ready-made payment widgets, which can be easily re-designed in colour and style. Once integrated, NorthPayNow works cross-device."
