Furthering a Shared Vision of Supporting a Diverse, Alternative Payments Ecosystem
DURHAM, NC and LONDON – August 30, 2022 – Spreedly, the provider of the leading Payment Orchestration platform, and PPRO, the leading provider of digital payments infrastructure, announced today a partnership to offer a diverse portfolio of alternative / local payment methods (APM / LPMs) through the Spreedly platform.
Spreedly and PPRO have partnered to offer joint customers the ability to easily access a catalog of LPM offerings via one connection to Spreedly’s Payments Orchestration platform. This includes LPMs such as Bancontact, BLIK, Boleto, Giropay, iDeal, Multibanco, OXXO, SEPA, Sofort, and BNPL offered through Klarna, with more payment method additions planned. This allows digital businesses to quickly offer the array of payment options that their end-customers demand instead of building and maintaining individual connections.
“It’s no surprise more merchants are seeking ways to quickly and efficiently offer their customers their choice of alternative payment methods,” commented Jordan McKee, with 451 Research, S&P Global Market Intelligence. In a recent report, Voice of the Enterprise: Customer Experience & Commerce, Merchant Study 2022, McKee found that, “the top two payments initiatives that commerce technology decision-makers are pursuing this year are expanding alternative payment method (APM) acceptance and improving their omnichannel payments strategy. As merchants pursue these goals and others, they often find that a single payment service cannot handle every requirement of their business. Therefore, it has become common practice to enlist multiple payment services to address specific business needs.”
Digital businesses need to enter new geographies faster, better support the needs of their customers and partners, and improve authorization rates for transactions. So, integrating with the right mix of payment services and the preferred local payment method has always been a challenge for merchants. Just as no single gateway is perfect for all payments needs, offering the right mix of local payment methods is important, and now merchants have a single provider option in Spreedly for local payment methods.
“Spreedly has historically grown through a focus on building integrations with a wide variety of gateways and payment service providers (PSPs). PPRO has long been fostering the payments ecosystem by offering one access point to multiple payment methods. We’re excited to be able to blend these shared visions and offer the most comprehensive portfolio of payment methods and services available via one integration,” commented Randy Guard, chief product and marketing officer, with Spreedly.
“A core focus for PPRO as a digital payments infrastructure provider is to offer the market the most extensive range of digital payment methods available in the payments ecosystem. Digital payments methods are as diverse as the people that use them and so giving consumers access to the right payment method choice at the checkout is essential to a merchant’s sustainable growth. Our partnership with Spreedly means that more merchants will be able to provide more consumers with more choice to make purchases using their preferred way to pay around the globe,” said Adrian Burgess, head of strategic growth at PPRO.
