London-based Trust Payments, a disruptive leader in fintech specialising in frictionless payments and value-added services, is expanding its existing relationship with Fiserv to support the company’s ambitious growth and worldwide expansion plans. The new long-term agreement builds on the companies’ successful collaboration since 2012 and will allow Trust Payments to provide its clients with on-demand payment capabilities, enabled by acquiring-as-a-service (AqaaS) capabilities from Fiserv.
The emergence of AqaaS has made it possible for a broad range of fintechs beyond financial institutions or large payment processers to become merchant acquirers, enabling the acceptance of card payments for their own clients.
“Enabling card payment acceptance is a must for any company looking to include payments as part of their services mix. And, for fintechs offering payment acceptance, the selection of a processing partner is critical, as their advice, experience, flexibility and reliability have a strategic impact on business operations and growth,” said Adam Bowman, Vice President of Acquiring-as-a-Service at Fiserv. “Trust Payments is one of the industry’s most dynamic payments players, and we are proud to extend our relationship with them as they accelerate their growth and serve even more businesses.”
Trust Payments is seeing rapid growth, with a 73% increase in total revenues last year, as more merchants recognised the need for digitisation of payments and commerce, partially fuelled by the rise in contactless spending and the need to meet growing customer demand for omnichannel experiences.
