Direct Debit Limited (DDL), a payments management software provider, has partnered with WorldPay, a payment service provider for online transactions. The deal enables WorldPay and DDL customers to benefit from a single payments platform and make and collect numerous payment types, including credit and debit card, direct debit, single euro payments area (SEPA) and Faster Payments, through one system.
As a result of the partnership, Direct Debit Limited has added a module that processes card payments to its PayCentre payments management platform. The module processes one-off or recurring payments via WorldPay’s Corporate Gateway. The technology helps businesses slash costs associated with hosting multiple systems, minimises the need for staff training and provides users with a single point of access to information on all their customer payments.
Gabriel Hopkins, head of ecommerce products at WorldPay, said: “Through this partnership we’ve created a combined solution which meets the requirements of customers with a range of payments and collections needs. We are now able to offer our mutual customers a rich service that capitalises on the strengths of both WorldPay and PayCentre.”
