Paysafe named Best Merchant Acquirer / Processor at Payments Awards

Paysafe has been named Best Merchant Acquirer/­Processor at this year’s Payments Awards on October 20th in London. 

The accolade was announced on October 20, 2016 at an awards ceremony at the London Marriott ­Hotel, ­Grosvenor Square. The Payments Awards, organised by FStech and Retail Systems, distinguishes excellence and innovation in the cards and payments sector, recognising companies, individuals and organisations who have launched and/or implemented the most outstanding ­payments solutions, initiatives and projects during the past year. The award adds to a growing list of accolades for the company’s pay before, pay now and pay later solutions, including Best Online or Mobile Commerce Solution at the Pay 2016 awards and EGaming Review’s Payments and Fraud ­company award. 

Commenting on the recognition, Joel Leonoff, President and CEO of Paysafe, said: “At Paysafe, we understand the need to keep innovating to remain relevant in this ­rapidly-evolving industry. I am delighted that the hard work and contributions of the team have been recognised among our peers. Our Payment Processing division con­tinues to go from strength to strength as we improve our merchant onboarding process, expand into new ­sectors and territories and launch new products and services, such as our upcoming Mobile Ordering platform called GOLO. I am particularly pleased with the recognition for our ­evolving acquiring business, which also recently ­launched multi-currency cross-border payment capabilities.”
