LAS VEGAS, NV, Nov. 3, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Optimal Payments (LSE AIM: OPAY), a leading global online payments provider, introduces NETELLERGO!TM, a new flexible and easy-to-use online checkout page, providing ecommerce merchants with indemnified alternative payments. The online quick checkout solution allows merchants to offer consumers the flexibility of using their preferred alternative payment type without requiring them to create a stored value account in order to complete their purchases. In addition, merchants will be offering the NETELLER® stored value service as a global payment method for their checkout page.
All of the complications associated with integrating multiple payment types are handled by Optimal Payments, including merchant settlement, taking away the hassle of dealing with complex contractual negotiations with multiple payment providers. NETELLERGO! will consolidate all payments due to merchants and deposit them into one account, preventing their need to open accounts in multiple jurisdictions around the world.
In addition to introducing NETELLERGO! at the Money20/20 payments and financial services conference and exhibition (booth #601), Optimal Payments is announcing the appointment of Rick Castello to the new position of Head of Sales, NETELLER U.S.
Mr. Castello is an experienced payments industry executive. He will lead North American sales efforts for the NETELLER stored value card as well as NETELLERGO!, and will work in the San Francisco Bay Area.
"NETELLERGO! is all about helping our online merchant partners do business anywhere in the world with the least fuss, greatest security and no risk," said Lorenzo Pellegrino, executive vice president, NETELLER. "Unlike many other payment providers who simply act as a technical routing gateway, we architected this service to be the most efficient global payment option on the market.
"Optimal Payments is handling all of the legal contracts with payment method providers and assuming all technical integration challenges so that our clients can focus on their business. We are even guaranteeing the validity of all transactions passing through NETELLERGO! absolving merchants of any downside risk," continued Mr. Pellegrino.
NETELLERGO! will be live late in Q4 2014. For more information, please contact [email protected].
