Gauthier also noted:

“We started to really think about how(we) not only simple integration and onboarding, but (how to) better manage operations on an ongoing basis. We decided the best solution for us was to integrate with a large merchant acquirer, as that simplifies a lot of the day-to-day issues around settlement, reconcilliation, reporting and dispute management.”

It is also reported that Fintech Fidelity National Information Services Inc. has acquired Worldpay. This will give the company an opportunity to expand its activities in any digital payments.
