Two renowned pioneers in the payment industry are coming together to provide a better payment experience to iGaming operators. This collaboration will also benefit to consumers.
Worldplay, Inc. and Paysafe Group announced recently their strategic partnership. The companies have their sights set on setting a standard in sports betting and iGaming digital payment acceptance. The collaboration also provides security for U.S. gamers.
The partnership will make seamless transactions easier while cutting down on operating costs. The collaboration will also permit universal payment acceptance. This leverages Worldpay’s sector expertise and easy credit card processing. The partnership also offers fast-fun payouts and a wide variety of payment solutions. These services are offered along with Paysafe’s proven online gambling and gaming digital payment choices. This includes the popular Neteller digital wallet and the award-winning paysafecard.
iGaming is growing rapidly. This growth comes after the Supreme Court put the legal power for authorizing sports gambling in the hands of individual states. The market opportunity for iGaming is huge. The American Gaming Association says the sports betting industry in the U.S. is predicted to be worth $150 billion in gross online and offline gambling revenue. iGaming betting could possibly become the world’s biggest sports betting market.
Joel Leonoff, CEO and President of Paysafe Group, states, “Through this partnership, Worldpay and Paysafe will be able to champion the needs of U.S. iGaming operators and their players by provding a secure, cost-effective and highly configurable payments platform that delivers an unparalleled player experience.” Leonoff further asserts, “Our innovative approach means we can support all transactions, no matter how the player wants to pay. We’re very excited to once again get behind a new and growing sector.”
More Benefits of the Payment Collaboration
Blending the capabilities of Worldpay and Paysafe will help boost the payment choices of gamblers. This leads to better retention and conversion. As a result of this new payment solution, the two industry leaders will provide efficient connectivity through a single integration point. The collaboration will also lead to services that include cash payment solutions, digital wallets and credit card processing. Services also include push-to-card payouts that are almost instant and ACH specifically for the U.S. gambling market.
Shane Happach, EVP and Head of Global Enterprise eCommerce for Worldpay, shares, “As a leading payments provider for iGaming companies, state lotteries and land-based casinos, Worldpay is excited about the enhancements this partnership will bring when it comes to maximizing payment acceptance, enabling new digital wallets, as well as minimizing fraud risk and lowering cost.” Happach further asserted, “Our combined strengths and capabilities will simplify payments for gaming operators, while also continuing to show our attentiveness to responsible gaming and our mission to protect the integrity of every transaction.”
The partnership recently announced that it will be focused mainly on sports betting and iGaming in the U.S. This won’t impact Paysafe’s or Worldpay’s operations in other territories and industries.
