Optimal Payments Renews Agreement And Delivers Enhancement To The Desjardins Internet Payment Solution

Desjardins Ecommerce Merchants Now Able to Accept Accord D Online Payments

MONTREAL, September 18, 2014 /CNW/ - Optimal Payments Plc (LSE AIM: OPAY), a leading global online payments provider, announces that is has renewed its current agreement as a certified partner providing Desjardins' Premier Internet Payment Solution, and has successfully implemented several solution enhancements.

Desjardins selected Optimal Payments to develop a custom NETBANX® payment gateway to serve as its Internet Payment Solution through a competitive RFP process in early 2012. When initially launched, the solution provided merchants with transaction processing, hosted payment pages, customer profile management, access to real-time data and comprehensive fraud management tools including custom fraud parameter setting, tokenization and 3D Secure.

Since 2012, Optimal Payments has enhanced its custom solution to include the ability for ecommerce merchants to accept online payments made by customers wishing to use the Accord D financing option available on their Visa Desjardins credit card. More than 7,500 retailers across Canada currently offer the Accord D financing program in-store through Desjardins, and with this new enhancement, they can now also accept Accord D transactions from their online websites. Additional features released include the ability for Desjardins ecommerce merchants to accept payments using various scheduled billing methods and through automated batch uploading.

"We are pleased to be a trusted payment solution partner for Desjardins Premier Internet Payment Solution and collectively serve thousands of Desjardins merchants across Quebec and Canada" said Danny Chazonoff, chief operating officer, Optimal Payments. "We are continuously enhancing the solution to ensure that we deliver valuable premium online payment services that meet the high standards of Desjardins and their merchants."
