PetSmart acquired Pet360 for $130 million in cash and up to $30 million more in future performance-based payments.
Partnership provides global retailers with access to WorldPay’s Corporate Payment Gateway.
London, 2nd April 2012 – WorldPay, leading global provider of payment and risk services, today announced the launch of the Oracle ATG ‘plug-in’, providing merchants with access to WorldPay’s full range of card payment, alternative payment, fraud and acquiring services, through Oracle’s ATG eCommerce platform.
The plug-in provides prospective and existing Oracle ATG customers access to a ready-made global eCommerce solution, saving the merchant significant development time and money.
The partnership forms part of WorldPay’s ongoing strategy to develop, manage and maintain plug-ins with the major market leading eCommerce platforms. By offering an end-to-end payments service, it allows merchants to reduce internal costs and increase functionality through one connection. This unique market approach gives merchants the largest opportunity possible for simple and effective payments integration to their existing website, regardless of the platform used. WorldPay partnered with e2x, one of the leading Oracle ATG integrators, to create a tailor-made integration between WorldPay’s Corporate Payment Gateway and Oracle’s ATG eCommerce platform. WorldPay already has platform plug-ins compatible with IBM Websphere Commerce and Demandware, and will be adding Intershop and Hybris to its portfolio over the coming months.
David Drever, VP Global Partnerships at WorldPay says: “The global nature of eCommerce requires merchants to have access to the broadest range of payment types and services. By forming these partnerships and creating plug-ins, WorldPay is making it easier for global retailers to access these services and most importantly, eradicating the development time and cost merchants would typically invest to access these services. As the online payment landscape evolves, WorldPay is at the forefront, and it will work with partners that can provide the best overall eCommerce package so merchants can maximise global eCommerce opportunities”.
James Spalding, managing director, e2x, says: “Being able to pay for goods in a safe and secure manner that shoppers are used to is paramount in the design of eCommerce platforms for international retailers. The creation of this Oracle ATG plug-in with WorldPay enables retailers to achieve this, increasing the functionality and user friendliness of their eCommerce sites.”
