Online merchants who accept Discover that are also looking to attract cash customers can now implement eBillme as a method of payment. eBillme transactions will now be processed over the Discover Network utilizing CardinalCommerce’s Centinel Universal Merchant Platform. Merchants will also be able to leverage eBillme’s other products and services, including online shopping tools and merchant-funded discounts.
“This partnership is a pioneering approach to enabling online payments for our merchant network,” says Farhan Ahmad, General Manager, Prepaid & Director of Emerging Payments at Discover. “Our core mission is to provide our merchants with more payment choices, and we believe this relationship with eBillme will enable us to do that.”
“CardinalCommerce and Discover share our dedication to a successful checkout experience for shoppers and we are excited to be working together with them to bring secure cash payments to more online retailers,” says Marwan Forzley, President and CEO of eBillme. “We enable online shoppers to take the security of their banks with them to the eCommerce checkout without any fees, interest or debt. Retailers that offer eBillme see increases in average order values, customer loyalty and new customers. We now bring these benefits to the Discover Network and look forward to welcoming their merchants into our eBillme family.”
“Cardinal continues to achieve its business strategy, to enable and authenticate transactions originating from any place, sending transactions to the right place, in the right way,” says Mike Keresman, the Chief Executive Officer, CardinalCommerce Corporation. “eBillme has been a popular alternative payment available to merchants using Centinel for several years. We are pleased to be able to extend the eBillme payment option, leveraging Centinel, through a seamless, fast integration across the Discover Network of retail merchants.”
