WorldPay Limited Key Developments

Worldpay Launches RiskGuardian to Enable Online Businesses to Fight Fraud

Worldpay has launched RiskGuardian, a new risk management tool that uses the latest technology to combat fraud and help online businesses operate more efficiently. The tool, which was developed in partnership with ecommerce merchants across the globe, offers more accurate risk checks to increase the acceptance of good transactions and minimize fraudulent ones. It runs more than 200 checks per second on each transaction and identifies emerging fraud patterns, meaning it can cut fraud losses by more than 50%. Unlike any other risk management tool on the market RiskGuardian is tailored to more than 20 business sectors, including retail, gaming, travel and gambling, enabling merchants to utilize applicable data to optimize their profiles. RiskGuardian can be customized even further, ensuring it meets every company's exact needs.

Ethiopian Airlines Partners with Worldpay to Streamline its Business Transactions and Meet the Needs of its Global Customer Base

Ethiopian Airlines has partnered with Worldpay to streamline its business transactions and meet the needs of its global customer base. Ashna Bhawan at Worldpay worked with Ethiopian Airlines to implement a customized payment solution that integrates with Ethiopian Airlines' sales channels and Sabre Reservation System to process payments on behalf of Ethiopian. Worldpay's global acquiring network reduces the cost and risk associated with international payment acceptance, whilst maximising global customer reach by connecting to locally preferred payment methods. This helps Ethiopian Airlines to show prices in their customers' local currency, enhancing sales conversions.

cloudBuy plc Announces Partnership with Worldpay

cloudBuy plc and Worldpay have agreed a partnership which will enable cloudBuy customers a new fast-track service for merchant accounts. The deal will allow approximately 117 local authorities across the UK, to start taking debit, credit and commercial card payments though their local marketplace website, giving their customers an easy to use payment option when shopping online. Partners for the last 10 years, cloudBuy and Worldpay have agreed a highly competitive proposition for cloudBuy customers, many of which provide access to local health and social care services. By taking online card payments, these local authorities are making it easier for people to access a wider range of health and social care products and services, from pre-approved suppliers. Local authorities will also benefit from speedy settlement back into their business account, freeing up administration time previously spent collecting and chasing payments. As cloudBuy marketplace websites are so easy to use, they are quickly being adopted by many local authorities across the UK. Care is a particularly complex area for ecommerce, and each local authority has thousands of suppliers.
