AsiaPay and Discover Global Network extend acceptance in Asia

AsiaPay, a Hong Kong-based e-payment technology provider, has partnered with Discover Global Network. The agreement will see AsiaPay offer its merchants the ability to accept Discover, Diners Club International and affiliate networks cards through PayDollar, its Universe channel payment management platform.

This partnership will allow AsiaPay to provide an integrated card payment processing service for point-of-sale merchants in Hong Kong and digital merchants in Asia, particularly in the hospitality and e-commerce sectors. Additionally, Discover cards will be accepted at the AsiaPay merchants, initially in Hong Kong then expanding across 12 total markets in Asia.

“There is continued merchant demand for a complete integrated payment acceptance solution across prevailing payment methods to optimise sales conversion and better serve customers globally especially in digital channel payments” said Joseph Chan, CEO of AsiaPay.

Along with this partnership, ProtectBuy, Discover’s 3D Secure technology will also be launched in an effort to enhance authentication and minimise the fraudulent activity.
