Optimal Payments and Desjardins Announce Successful Launch of NETBANX Online Payment Gateway and Services
Montréal, January 24, 2012 – Optimal Payments, a global provider of online payment processing services, and Desjardins announced today the launch of a fully customized version of Optimal’s NETBANX® gateway services to Desjardins merchants (www.desjardins.com).
“We are very pleased to partner with Optimal Payments and its NETBANX service, which will enhance Desjardins’ nation-wide expertise in payment solutions. This decision reaffirms our position in the e-commerce industry, allowing us to focus on our merchants’ needs,” said Patrice Dagenais, Vice-President, Payment Solutions and Business Partnerships, at Desjardins Card Services.
Desjardins chose Optimal as a partner and NETBANX as their gateway based on their long standing reputation for delivering secure, comprehensive solutions. Optimal remains at the forefront of online payment processing and is continuously developing their platform to support emerging payment options and protect merchants against the continuously evolving forms of online payment fraud.
“Desjardins Card Services recognized our leadership in payment processing and we are confident our NETBANX gateway and services will meet the current and future needs of Desjardins online merchants – whether they are commerce, government agencies or enterprise businesses accepting card-not-present payments”, said Danny Chazonoff, Chief Operating Officer of Optimal Payments.
Today the NETBANX gateway is trusted by Internet 500 companies and respected brands around the globe to provide secure online processing of credit cards, debit cards, direct debit, online banking and e-wallet payments as well as a multitude of alternative payment options that are preferred in international markets. Online merchants also know they can count on NETBANX’s proprietary “risk rules engine” and customizable fraud screening tools to minimize their fraud losses and liability, and its support of tokenization to reduce their PCI-DSS exposure.
