Paysafe named Best Merchant Acquirer or Processor at the Payments Awards for third year running

Nov 15, 2018

Paysafe, a leading global payments provider, has been named winner of the Best Merchant Acquirer or Processor category at the prestigious ‘Payments Awards’ which took place in London yesterday. It is the third year running that the company has received the accolade.

Now in their sixth year, the Payments Awards recognise card and payments excellence and innovation. Winners are based on the companies that have been deemed to launch or implement the most outstanding payments solutions, initiatives and projects during the past year.

Paysafe offers end-to-end acquiring and payment processing infrastructure. As an authorised Acquiring Bank across Europe, it provides merchants with a single point of contact for handling, authorisation, clearing and settlement for every major payment scheme. Merchants can quickly integrate card acceptance and collect payments, using a fully customisable and branded checkout.

“Winning this award an incredible three years running is testament to the amazing work of our team. They’ve worked hard to deliver market leading acquiring and processing services which make a difference and put the customer first,” said Andrea Dunlop, CEO of Merchant Acquiring, Europe at Paysafe. “But we aren’t complacent, and we never stand still. We continue to grow and evolve our portfolio with the same entrepreneurial approach and agility that has always been in our DNA.”

In addition to winning at the Payments Awards, last month Paysafe was named ‘Best PSP or Acquiring Solution Provider’ at the Emerging Payments Awards for the second year running, and the company picked up a coveted ‘Pink Chip Employer’ award from the European Women’s Payment Network in recognition of the positive working environment it has created for its female employees.
